  3. Viking Beyla
We chose this cruise because of interest in the history and evolvement these Eastern European countries; and a personal Polish ancestral history. We were very impressed with a previous Viking sailing and felt positive about booking with Viking once again. The modern baby longship was beautiful; the crews at both stationary ports were awesome; the local guides,Heike, Jana and Nandor were knowledgeable and fun; the food was delicious, especially on the ship (somewhat North American which was a nice alternative to the local food which was good as well); the bus drivers were polite and most importantly, they were safe. We all appreciated the cold water bottles on those particularly hot days! The shore excursions were fantastic for us. No complaints. Viking went out of its way to make amends for a situation they had no control over. We were in no way disgruntled because we could not actually sail. All was verrry good and even tho we didn't rate everything as EXCELLENT because you must have some motivation to keep everything top notch! We have booked another cruise for January. Thank you.

Elbe River shy of water and modifications were made; no cruising :)

Cabin Review

Standard Outside Stateroom
Cabin E 105
Loved it for the category we chose; a far cry from our original cruise (Russian Rivers) which was old style.
