Sail Date: May 2017
Cabin: Explorer Suite

Please beware that Viking does not get the premiere ports on cruises. As we cruised on the Danube we went by all the beautiful locations tomport in Passau, Germany & ended what I would call a “ghetto” port.

Please look at the photo I have posted that shows our table with 2 glasses of champagne with our scenery of rusted out machinery and water tanks. This is not the type of image that you see on Masterpiece theatre.

And to make it worse the Viking customer service people were not helpful. They had arranged for a couple of shuttles to take us to Passau maybe one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We ended up calling a taxi.

Cabin Review

Explorer Suite

Cabin is beautiful, but very expensive.
