Viking Bragi Cruise Review by kennyGoat
- Sail Date: May 2016
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom
preCruise tours of ghent, bruges & amsterdam were wonderful;
ms tineke vanDenbege was delightful & helpful providing continuity between ghent & amsterdam.
the hotel accommodations in ghent & amsterdam were great.
we had time before embarkation to visit keukenhof gardens on the last day of their season,
& the vanGogh museum (we had already been to the rijksMuseum on a previous bike&barge trip).
I would have liked a fitness option to theTours or an onBoard fitnessRoom;
the ludwigSteig hike to the passau oberHaus was nice.
most of the localTour guides were well informed, courteous & congenial.
the marketTours & concerts were a welcome change.
there was ample freeTime on shore
with thePursers providing welcome guidance of local sightSeeing.
we would have loved an interior tour of the parliament in budaPest.
the vikingStaff @BUD was most helpful & unexpected.
all the onBoard meals were great. freeSeating encouraged circulation.
smaller guest population compared to oceanCruises is preferred.
the preDinner orientation talks were informative.
baggage handling @localHotels, embarkation & disembarkation was efficient & careFree.
we are going on your lyon&provence riverCruise nxtMonth.
250,000+ people have entered their email
the waterLevel windows were interesting
& most of the shipPassages were accessible.
ourCabin shower had drain problems which took a couple of days to rectify.
the bathroom could use an exhaust fan.
I preferred the waterLevel room w/o balcony
as we did not spend much dayTime hours there.
theCabin was clean & more than adequate, as were publicSpaces.
