We chose this cruise, because of the high ratings of Viking!! They lived up to our expectations!! The staff, accommodations, food, and people we met were the nicest!! We will definitely go again! We bought a voucher...so we can't wait for another outstanding experience!! We traveled from Decin to Berlin. When we disembarked to bus to board the ship, it was an ah-ha moment!! We were handed a drink as we boarded and welcomed by the captain. The food was wonderful and we had 3 choices of dining. Either we could go to the buffet(each meal), or be served by our server, from ordering from the menu, or go to the upper deck area for a lighter fare. All areas were fresh and delicious!! We thoroughly enjoyed the bar service(as we bought the extra drink package). We also enjoyed the entertainment of the speakers brought in, and every night having a keyboard player to listen to. Our outside excursions were enjoyable and enlightening. Our Viking guide, Matt, was terrific.He was easy to talk to and listen to. The captain and Doret the crew director were also fun to be around, as we even had dinner with them. The people we met from all different countries were so warm and friendly, we hated to leave!! We will definitely go again, especially on a river cruise!

It was outstanding!!! It was our first cruise, ever!
