  3. Viking Astrild
We chose this cruise never having been to these parts of Europe. Our parents had done many Viking cruises and always gave them high scores. Every detail was covered and it was nice to be so well taken care of in every aspect. The food aboard was truly excellent with plenty of choices. Staff was genuinely gracious and knowledgeable. The guides on shore tours were so willing to share their passion for their places and often included little interesting tidbits to enhance the experiences. Shipboard entertainment was fun and definitely created friendships among passengers. I would go on a Viking River Cruise again. I'm not one for the large cruise ships so this was perfect. I was impressed that provisions were always made for passengers with special needs or diminished ability to walk or climb especially at Bad Schandu where there was a lot of stairs. The exercise was invigorating after indulging in the breakfast buffet! Lovely to be greeted at the airport by the Viking Cruise staff in signature red jackets. They have really covered all the details from start to finish.

Remarkable cruise from beginning to end.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 205
Comfortable cabin...clean and bright. Loved having the balcony while slowly cruising down the Elbe. Watched a woman playing with her horses in their pasture by the river...priceless!
