My First Viking River Cruise

Viking Astrild Cruise Review by lrobeson1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Standard Outside Stateroom

We traveled from Berlin to Prague on the Astrild. It was our first Viking Cruise and we were so impressed! The shore excursions were interesting and enjoyable. The amount of time spent at each location was sufficient and the accommodations were fine. The crew really made all efforts to ensure that we were served well, and our program director was awesome! The program director was very knowledgeable and helpful. The food was great but there was so much! Many times we ate in the lounge for a light meal instead of eating in the dining area. We liked this option. Even more impressive was that I learned that Viking is a privately held company. It is apparent that the owners take very good care of their employees. They have a philosophy that a happy crew promotes a happy customer. You have to respect that! It works! We will definitely travel again on Viking.

Cabin Review

Standard Outside Stateroom
Cabin E 102

We had to take the standard cabin because the other cabins were sold out. It was just as well because there was plenty of room and we rarely stayed in our cabin for any length of time with the exception of sleeping. The housekeeper was warm and friendly and always kept the room clean.

City Tour

The Viking tour was very informative and comprehensive. We saw many sights and learn a lot of the history.
