  3. Viking Tialfi
It was our first river cruise so we didnt know what to expect. We chose Viking simply from the tv adverts. Everything about it surpassed our expectations and was the best holiday we have ever had before or since. Right from the off we felt very special. We plan to take another next year. France and the vineyards are favourite. We met some amazing people on board and are still in touch with 4 of them today. So much so that we are all hoping to take the same river cruise together to meet up once again. The ship was smaller than imagined but all perfectly formed. The public areas were large enough for all guests and the upper deck was a lovely place to sit out. Dining on the aquavit terrace was particularly lovely when the ship was sailing. The dining room was a bit hectic as everyone ate at the same time, perhaps a staggered eating plan would be better. We did have to wait a while most evenings but we always had lovely food, tentative staff and great company at the table. Open dining . The first nights entertainment, the band, set the scene for the rest of the week and it wouldve been good to have them there 1 or 2 other nights but it didnt retract from our enjoyment. We LOVED it.
