We had heard a lot of great things about Viking River Cruises, and it went above and beyond our expectations. We chose this cruise because my husband had live in Germany and visited these places as a child. We had been on a cruise to Alaska with another line years ago, the boarding and disembarkation was like a mob scene. On this cruise everything was so organized, smooth and they made you feel like you were the only one who was important. The cities and guides were great, shore excursions were fantastic, the cabins were roomy and very comfortable. We had a balcony and enjoyed sitting out there in the mornings and evenings when we wanted quite time. Everyone one on the ship was gracious and catered to your every need one of which was warm milk at 3am one night. The food was fantastic with a great selection and more than anyone person could eat. The captain went above and beyond at 5am to give those of us that wanted to see the Ramadan bridge a call and light up the bridge with the spot light so we could see and take pictures. We also did the post trip in Amsterdam and this was equally as nice and organized. Thank you to the Viking crew for making our cruise so memorable . A side note to all, we do not cruise as often as some people on our cruise, this being our 2nd in 10 years. We normally do road trips but after this cruise and the value for the money, the overall wonderful experience and pure enjoyment we will be cruising again with Viking in the near future.
