  3. Viking Gefjon
We signed up for this cruise because it coincided with peak tulip time in the Netherlands. Despite the crowds Viking was able to provide access to sites that generally avoided the crowds and gave us a good insight into the people and culture of Holland. Although a bit nippy at times the weather was excellent. The tours were generally extremely well done - although in Amsterdam museums would be better visited on one's own. The guides were well-informed. The food was great - variety, complimentary wine and beer The wait staff was superb - prompt, attentive, friendly. Game nights were hilarious. Pre-dinner talks from the master chef were an event to be looked forward to. The entire staff was extremely helpful, good-natured and provided advice and many small extras that made the cruise special. Embarkation and debarkation were handled very efficiently. I would not look elsewhere for a river cruise! While the cruise offered a lot there were several areas that we visited on our own by renting a car and getting local guides to visit special sites: Madurodam, Den Haag, Delft, Amersfoort, Leeuwarden, Franeker, Harlingen, and Marken.

Viking was very good 10 years ago....this year it was even better!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 205
Lots of storage for the size of the room.
Quiet.
Thoughtfully laid out - many details improved over our previous Viking ship in 2007.
