We booked our cruise based on our own research and our travel agent’s recommendation. It’s not often that our entire vacation ends up being better than we hoped, but this trip truly was. From the time we got to the airport in Raleigh, NC to the time we returned there, everything was handled by Viking with exceptional results. Every detail was well thought out and expertly executed.
The staff at all phases were friendly, courteous, and professional. We were met at the airport in Amsterdam, and taken to our hotel ( the Radisson Blu), where we were met by our Viking concierge. That’s the way it went until we were delivered to the airport in Zurich.
The only negative I can even think of was the last included excursion (the Black Forest one.). It wasn’t bad, but paled in comparison to all the others. It was a long (by beautiful) bus ride to a destination that felt very much like a tourist trap. It wasn’t a bad day, but by the time we got back to the boat we were tired. Five plus hours of bus for barely one hour among the shops.
A neat, clean, and well laid out room. Nice bathroom with upscale toiletries.
