Viking Gefjon Cruise Review by Viking18
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Veranda Suite
The two week, Grand European River Cruise appealed to us much more than a weeklong cruise. We believed it would allow us to “settle in” without immediately counting how many days we had left. And “settle in” we did. We began in Amsterdam after a four day jet jag adjustment in Amsterdam. Embarkation was efficient and welcoming, and the wine tasting on the Aquavit Terrace was a grand introduction. We were immediately impressed with our stateroom, and the overall condition and appearance of the Viking Longboat. Exceeding both were the professionalism and warmth of the ship’s staff.
The variety of food and beverage selections ensured there was something for everyone. Service was outstanding, as was the quality of the meals, from breakfast through dinner. Shore excursions offered were varied and appropriate. Guides were uniformly outstanding, from personality and communication skills to their professional knowledge.
It was hard to depart in Budapest. We wanted the cruise to never end. We came with very high expectations, and they were exceeded in all respects.
Viking18’s Full Rating Summary
Five star bathroom, bedroom, and sitting area. Bedding was perfect. Loved that we could easily fit our extended travel Tumi suitcases under the bed. Our stateroom attendant was always ready to work with us on timing for room cleanup. Laundry service was prompt.
