Viking Vilhjalm Cruise Review by Groovy Joe
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom
Our cabin was very comfortable and we had plenty of room to store all our stuff for an 8 day cruise. although we did not spend much time there it was spacious and we were able to see our sailing adventure as we traveled out our sliding glass door.
We enjoyed many daily off boat excursions that were guided by local people who were very informative and friendly. We also had plenty of time on shore to explore on our own after getting our barrings from the walking tours. The cities and scenery on the Blue Danube were beautiful. We really got a flavor of the true culture of every port we visited.
The service was awesome. The crew and the staff were so friendly and informative. The meals were five star. The local wine, beer and beverages were a taste from each region we visited. we were also entertained by local actors and musicians who gave us a taste of the regional dance, song and theatrical theme.
The ports we visited were so beautiful. The churches, the hills, the homes and every scene we saw was better than the last. The history was especially exciting for me as we traveled through time back to many many years before the US was even a country to current Eastern European culture.
I especially liked Budapest at night. The Abbey at Melk. And Chesky Romanov in the Check Republic which was a shirt bus ride from our boat. It was ancient and beautiful.
We are looking forward to traveling with Viking again soon. Our next adventure may be a river cruise on the Rhine River.
Try it you'll like it. And you will be Groovin down a river with a smile on your face.

Clean and comfort.
We were able to unpack the day we boarded and not see our suitcases until the day we left.
