After about a dozen ocean cruises we decided to try a river cruise. We chose Viking as they have a very good reputation. We had a French balcony on deck three and had ample room for all our stuff. We started with two days in Paris and ended with two days in Prague. Both cities were amazing. From the moment we got off the plane we were taken excellent care of by the Viking staff. We loved the layout of the ship and the food and included wine. The excursions were very well organized with excellent guides. Our Cruise Director, Bojan was truely delightful and he kept us laughing while also making sure that we were all accounted for at every stop. All the staff were friendly and professional. Although the river levels were high we were able to do the entire trip on the rivers. We purchased coupons for a future cruise with Viking and want to find one that includes Budapest.
We were fortunate to have a French balcony on deck three that provided excellent viewing on the river although we often spent time on the rooftop deck. The cabin provided more room than expected and opening the drapes all the way really made it feel large. The bathroom had decent size with an excellent shower.
