  3. Viking Atla
We had traveled with Viking once before in 2013. Even though it was a kind of working trip for us with the Singing Men of Texas on the Black Sea, it was wonderful. Once again we found the service of all working for Viking is above and beyond anything we expected. Everyone is so helpful and kind. The whole ship is immaculate! All the waiters, tables, rooms, everything was spotless and perfect. The planned tours were very informative and well organized. All the tour guides were knowledgeable and their English perfect. Our last guide in Vienna to the Palace must have been tired or stressed out, because she fell short in the pleasant category. She seemed a little bored with all of us and in a hurry to be rid of the inconvenience. But considering this, only one, out of all the people we met - commendable. Also had a guide in Regensburg, Germany with too many political views concerning American politics, but we just laughed him off knowing he was not in the "know". Political views should be kept to oneself especially concerning a country not your own. All in all, YES, we hope to be able to tour with Viking again. Wonderful experience and one everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.
