Cruise was good for the most part but a couple of things could have been handled better.

1.- in Germany I took the 12 hour Berlin tour, 6 hours round trip from ship to Berlin, then a quick 1 hour bus tour around the city and then dropped of in down town for 4 hours on own. This would have been fine if it wasn't Sunday. Apparently it's illegal for stores to open on Sundays in Germany so all we could do for 4 hours is look around souvenir shops or go to a restaurant as that was all that was open. If Viking had informed me of this, my wife and I would have taken one of the optional tours along the coast.

2.- 10 days before our cruise started we received an E-mail from Viking that our Bergen tour was canceled because the World Cup cycle races were taking place there. In lieu of our tour we were given a $200.oo ship board credit and a 1 hour harbor Cruise of

Cabin Review

Cabin DV4

clean and comfortable as we expected. Lacked drawer space, we had more in the same cabin category on our Viking River Cruise.

Port Reviews

Aalborg

Aalborg is a beautiful city however our visit here was very short.

Eidfjord

Town is very small in a beautiful setting, to really appreciate the area you need to hike or travel out of the village.
