  3. Viking Lofn
This was our first River Cruise. We were not disappointed. We picked Viking because of the reviews that we had read. We were extremely satisfied with the ship, and the crew could not have been nicer. All the meals were great and the wine offerings were excellent. The wait staff was very attentive with our favorites being Benz and Ivo. A big thrill was being able to enter the Wheelhouse and watch while Captain maneuvered the ship. Unfortunately, the Captain would not let me steer. [I wonder why?]. Arrival and departure was very smooth because of good planning by Viking. As soon as we were identified at the airport, Viking personnel guided us to their waiting buses and they took care of our luggage which reappeared later in our room. The pre-arranged tours were mostly good, with excellent tour guides using radio transmitting devises to each participants personal headset. This worked great. We were a little disappointed with the tour to the Black Forest which we thought was a little commercialized and the Cologne walking tour which only allowed 15 minutes to visit the interior of the Cologne Cathedral.

Can't wait to go on another Viking River Cruise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin E 101
The cabin, including the bath, was clean and refreshed every day. Room was a little small but adequate with plenty of storage for clothing and luggage. We were on the lower level with limited window visibility so we spent most of our "ship time" in the lounge.
