Viking Jarl Cruise Review by ChristineR67
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Veranda Suite
We spent 4 days on the Jarl. Then because of drought conditions the Danube had low spots. We were bused to the Alta further on down river. Then spent 2 more days cruising until the next low spot! Had to be bused into Budapest. But Viking handled EVERYTHING! Extra night at the hotel, transferring our luggage, etc.
The staff on both ships were fantastic! Mario was our program director and was excellent at his job which was made complex due to the dought!
We took advantage of the included tours at each port of call. They were great! And not to be missed! Great tour guides and you had a radio with an earphone for the tours. This was good so you didn't need to be right up near the leader and could stand back and take in the sites.
We ate primarily on the Aquavit Deck to enjoy the views and fresh air. Every night I had the regional special and was NOT disappointed! Breakfasts and some dinners we ate in the lower dining room and were delighted by the friendly servers.
It was sad to leave. Think next time a longer cruise!
