The Netherlands is my favorite destination when I travel. When I saw the "Tulips and Windmills" cruise, I knew I had to sign up. Amsterdam is so beautiful in many ways. The Dutch are delightful and very friendly. Amsterdam has soooo much to see. I've been to Amsterdam at least 7 or more times and I can still find things to do and see. This trip not only spends 3 days in Amsterdam but also some lovely towns I had not been to. So I found myself wanting to go so much, I went by myself. This was the first time I ventured out on my own with Viking. Having sailed with Viking on four previous trips, I knew I could do this! I made my reservation and began planning for the trip. My only fear was "who would I eat dinner with??" Funny how things turn out. The minute I boarded the ship, I met a single woman traveling with a friend. We started talking, hit it off, and Voila! I had some people to eat dinner with and ended up spending time on many of the excursions. Along the way I met a couple from Charleston, South Carolina and all of us became instant friends. In fact, the couple (Suzanne and Andy) and I have already planned and reserved 2 more Viking trips. Needless to say, the trip was fabulous. The food was delightful. I always get the Silver Spirit Package and the drinks are delicious. I ate breakfast in the Aquavit Lounge every morning since it is quiet there and offers a great selection of bread, rolls, meats, yogurt, musli etc. I never felt alone on the trip, not once! Will I do it again with Viking ? You betcha!

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA 328
The veranda suite is huge. It is composed of two separate rooms. I had a living room with a hugh flat screen TV and another TV in the bedroom. I had fresh fruit in the room every day with a minibar. There was a bottle of champagne greeting me which I shared on our last night. My attendant was always there making sure the suite was immaculate. The bathroom was also large with a lovely heated floor and neverending shampoos and creams.
