  3. Viking Astrild
This was our first cruise ever and we chose a river cruise because of the smaller number of people on the cruise. Unfortunately, the water was too low for the cruise to occur. However the staff did their best to take us by bus to all of our destinations. Also added several additional experiences to make up for the loss of cruising. All in all, the experience was good but my average rating is based upon an act of nature rather than the actions of the staff. The towns and other destinations chosen by Viking River cruises for us to visit were very good in the introduction by staff of each destination was quite good. If it weren’t for the low water on the river, I would’ve given this experience a much higher rating. Overall, our experience was good and we plan to cruise again with the Viking River cruises.
