  3. Viking Atla
We had wanted to try a European river cruise. We had lived in Europe for 3 years during the Cold War so we chose Eastern Europe to see 5 countries and 3 major cities where then behind the Iron Curtain. Highlights: Planning was easy Making travel plans allowed for routing and upgrade options We received all the information we needed to plan & back Reception and return support was individual or small groups for individual flights Viking obviously selects only the best personnel, trains them to high standards and compensates them well enough to retain them and sustains exceptional service. While they anticipate every need, if you have to ask for anything, the answer is "yes sir, of course, right away, how many would you like, was that satisfactory, is there anything else and so on. But they are not overly solicitous. I felt like the crew were friends, easy to talk with and interested in our impressions and questions. Selection of tours allowed us to see and learn so much more than being on our own and yet there was time on our own to wonder around or take short side trips. Facilities, food, and service inconstant exceptional. we have planned the next trip and evaluating the options for the one after that.

We had wanted to try a European river cruise. We had lived in Europe for 3 years during the Cold War so we chose Eastern Europe to see 5 countries and 3 major cities where then behind the Iron Curtain.

Highlights:

Planning was easy

Making travel plans allowed for routing and upgrade options

We received all the information we needed to plan & back

Reception and return support was individual or small groups for individual flights

Viking obviously selects only the best personnel, trains them to high standards and compensates them well enough to retain them and sustains exceptional service.
