Viking Vilhjalm Cruise Review by Jahodges03

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

We chose this cruise because it visited five countries. The experiences in each country was unique and very educational. The tour guides gave personal stories, many about coming to freedom from Communism. Over and over again, I realized how blessed we are to live in a free country.

The ship's crew were always very attentive. Small perks were given that we didn't expect which made the cruise more enjoyable. Upon returning from one of Passau's tours, the crew offered hot cider when we boarded ship. This was very welcome because the day was very cold and raining.

We liked the open seating for dining. We met many new people and enjoyed their stories.

The onboard entertainment was lively and fun.

It was hard to pace myself during meals because everything was delicious, and I wanted to experience the local food based on the port we were in.

Ports and shore excursions were very educational and fun. We liked having a lot of time in port so we could explore on our own after the excursion if we wanted to. This is quite a contrast to the previous ocean cruise we took.

We have another cruise booked for this year and another booked for 2019. Can't wait to see more new countries, experience the culture and the warmth of the people. We definitely want to try a Viking Ocean cruise as well. Having 150 (river) to 930 (ocean) people on board is much more pleasant than fighting 5,000.
