Viking Bragi Cruise Review by Jimlo
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: French Balcony
Although we were not disappointed with the cruise, there are a few things Viking should do to improve offered shore excursions. Local guides were available in almost every instance and were generally good. We did have a couple of guides who were not up to standard. When we mentioned this to the ship's staff, we were only told that others had made the same complaint. Not a very encouraging answer.
Be wary of making trips away from the port cities. Too often the excursions were cut short because of slow progress through locks, or the time spent on a bus ride. These excursions are very pricey and the amount of time spent at the site did not seem to make for a good value.
Be sure to take advantage of the extensions that are offered for free on the included tours. The extra time was well spent!
Perhaps the best thing to think about if contemplating this cruise is to take it in sections. Spend more time in the embarkation or disembarkation cities, or both, and forego the lengthier cruise.
It is probably worth the added expense to travel either in later spring or earlier fall.
