  3. Viking Eistla
The Viking longship Mani had an accident with a barge earlier before and was still being repaired, so we were unable to embark on it for our cruise. No worries. The Mani crew took over the Estila and we sailed on her instead. We had been aboard the Estila the year before with the cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. So my review is about the crew of the Mani doing what I call a superb job on a different ship. The services provided were all professionally handled. Never once did we have any sort of problems. Even with the high water the Captain always found a place to disembark with buses waiting to take us where we needed to go. Cabins were always well cleaned and most welcomed after a long day in the cities. The room service crew was very professional and well trained. We loved the option of having the Aquavit lounge to eat our meals. being served the same food as below. George was the program director . And did the most excellent job of everything from getting us to our excursions to scheduling our roundabouts with the high water excursions Our cruise included a pre trip from Bruges Belgium Alex took care of everything on that end . Our post trip in Lucerne was fantastic and allowed us to unwind before the trip home .

Same ship different crew
