Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: French Balcony

Friends talked us into joining them on the Rhine Cruise to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We were novices, not sure what to expect. The staff of Viking guided us every step of the way, arranged transportation from the airport to the ship, settled us into our stateroom & made us feel comfortable. We experienced solicitous, caring, attentive, friendly, & informative attitudes.

The attention we received in our staterooms, at meals, around the ship, on the shore excursions was almost too much pampering.

We felt extremely appreciated & treated royally by the staff !

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Cabin D

Adequate. Did feel a little cramped. Loved the French Balcony windows, giving such a wonderful view of the shore, adding to our experiences . We kept the curtains open during the nite to catch more views of the shores anytime. Really cool experiencing going thru the locks. Appreciated the feather pillows since required following neck surgery. Needed a few more hangers. Tiny bathroom & shower were surprisingly good.

Liked the heated floor.
