  3. Viking Astrild
After a wonderful tour of Berlin, a rowing experience in Dessau and a visit to Wittenberg, our Elb experience began. With about 100 passengers, we met many great people. The captain, crew cruise director really made this a memorable trip. Never was there a "down" time. Our chef was always available to make all dining delicious and with local fares. Because the river was low, everybody was concerned we might disembark early. However, the captain kept us informed that his goal was to make sure we keep to the original schedule. Sure enough, after a rainy night, we were informed all is as planned. Everyone thanked him. The last evening's Czech dining event was truly delicious and memorable. Can't wait for another Viking trip, but the Asrild set the bar quite high. We particularly appreciated the dining options and locations. I highly recommend the optional Silver Spirits package. All in all, one heck of a trip.

Cabin Review

French Balcony Stateroom
Cabin C 232
At first glance, looked a bit cramped, but we spent so little time there, it worked out just fine. Cabin attendant was outstanding.
