We found the commercials on T.V. to be very appealing and liked the idea of a river cruise. We investigated a few other companies that offered river cruises but liked the offer made by Viking. From the moment we set foot on the boat we received superb attention and treatment. What stood out for us was the trouble that Martin went to arrange for our boat to get to Vienna earlier than scheduled and arrange for us to make an unscheduled stop where there was a cab waiting for another couple and ourselves so that we could make our concerts in Vienna. Joey the Program Manager was delightful and all the passengers just adored him for his warmth and sense of humour. The tours were exceptionally well organized, the on-board entertainment was wonderful and the food was superb. There were always great choices and we know how the staff went out of their way to accommodate people with dietary needs - even going as far as liquidizing meals for a passenger who could not eat solid foods. The wait staff were really excellent - they learned our names and were always there to greet us with big smiles on their faces. The cherry on the top was the fabulous people we met on-board, and we made some wonderful friends. We cannot wait to board another Viking boat for another river cruise.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 201
A well-furnished and comfortable cabin. In spite of its size it was well-planned and very cozy.
