  3. Viking Ingvi
We have been ocean cruising for years and wanted to visit inland countries and cities. This cruise offered us the opportunity to visit both large cities and small villages. We also took advantage of a post cruise 3 day visit to Prague. Transfers were handled expeditiously on arrival and during the post trip excursion. Only issue that arose was result of Delta computer snafu. Viking rep at our Hotel insisted we go to airport when we knew from experience that there would be no earlier departure than the one we booked. We were left at the hotel and took advantage of another day in Prague. When we went to the airport our fellow travelers were there disgruntled after having spent the day in an airport. The ship was immaculate, the service impeccable and the food delicious. River cruising is a much more intimate experience than Ocean cruising and we made some good friends. We missed evening entertainment although there was a piano player and dancing. On a few evenings entertainment was brought on the ship. As a result of high water levels locks were backed up so we missed the excursion to Salzburg that we most looked forward to. Our tour guides on most excursions were well informed, energetic and sometimes entertaining. Our cabin was smaller than expected and we are not large people. Staff on the ship were friendliest we have experienced on any cruise. Overall, it was a great experience and a memorable trip. We are looking at cruising with Viking again on one of their China itineraries.
