My sister & I chose the Viking Swiss Alps to Paris Cruise to celebrate her retirement & my 60th Birthday. We felt that a river cruise would be a great way to experience Europe. The Hild was a beautiful ship to cruise on. The service was exceptional & we so enjoyed being greeted by name everyday. Our crew were so helpful & accommodating with everything from housekeeping to travel arrangements. The chef, Jonni did such an outstanding job on each of our meals. Mathias, our cruise director, was a real pleasure to guide us safely through our travels. He went above & beyond to help.
The excursions were very attractive that it was difficult to pick one over the other when making our choices. Each port excursion was so organized & well planned. We had no problem at all finding our guides & participating in their presentations. We experienced & learned so much on our journey. It was everything & more than we hoped for!
Our cabin was a home away from home. Very spacious & impeccably kept. We had plenty of room for our large luggage. We especially enjoyed the balconies!
We were very impressed with this stunning medieval town. The 1,000 years old Reichsburg Castle was amazing & beautiful...
Loved the history of Speyer. We enjoyed visiting the red sandstone cathedral, the UNESCO World Heritage site. The history of The Jewish Courtyard was so interesting & humbling to view.
