  3. Viking Astrild
We chose this cruise to visit a part of Germany we hadn't been to previously. The scenery was beautiful throughout the cruise, and the tours at each stop were packed with interesting information and wonderful sites. Mingling with the locals was fun and we were able to enjoy the local food while touring and on the cruise ship. Our cabin was very comfortable and the dining and common areas of the ship were pleasant and comfortable. We really enjoyed meeting with our fellow passengers and sharing experiences. We were especially thrilled at how helpful the crew and staff were! My husband has mobility issues and everyone was so willing to help, even when we were managing fine on our own. This made the trip so much more comfortable and enjoyable! Near the end of the trip, we had an equipment failure with out travel wheelchair, and the ship's engineer was able to complete a temporary repair to get us through the rest of the trip - this was above and beyond our expectations! This was our third Viking cruise, and we plan to travel with Viking many more times!

Cabin B
Our cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed for the cruise. The cabin attendants were wonderful - always available if we needed anything, and our cabin was always clean and stocked.
