Viking Atla. Budapest to Nueremburg. Embark 4.30.17. Well designed contemporary river cruiser. Very clean and well appointed public spaces. Superior crew service from ships captain to bsu drivers. Professional and courteous without over stepping boundries. Matri 'd and primary waiter were exceptional. Seems to be a "clean" boat re virus control. Very well prepared entrees and buffet. Reasonable selection. Restaurant team aware of and accomodating to dietary limitations. Much of this is a matter of taste and experience. We were well pleased. Shore excursions as expected are thumbnail sketches. Guides seem well vetted by Viking. We chose a private guide for Prague prior to departure. Comparable in expense to Viking group rates. Good decision. Well organized excursions. Viking transfer to Prague was seamless with typical fine service. Viking desk within the hotel provided essential concierge services. Very helpful on day of transfer to airport with VAT process. This at 4:30 AM. I have traveled to the Contenient 40 / 50 times for business, 4/5 times recreation. Have avoided cruises. This was my/our best overall experience.

Typical size, tight but comfortable. Very clean, well appointed, spaceous window, reasonable balcony space for two. Comfortable matress and bedding. Adequate storage, space to store luggage beneath bed. Contemporary A/V (Satellite). Excellent daily cabin service. Laundry service is quick and a reasonable expense.
