Our "Cities of Light" Viking River Cruise from Paris to Prague was the most wonderful vacation experience my wife, our two best friends, and I have ever had. The accommodations aboard ship (Veranda A stateroom) were excellent, and the food onboard the ship was consistently superb. The very best part of our onboard experience, however, were the fantastic crew members we interacted with every day, particularly in the dining room. By the end of the week, we considered Joseph, Masami, and Ron in the Dining Room to be genuine friends. In addition, each and every on-shore excursion was an outstanding experience. Each was hosted by a local tour guide who was knowledgeable, articulate, warm, and friendly. These guides made the history of each location come alive. Every part of our trip was first-class, including the personal reception we received from a Viking representative upon arriving at the Paris airport. All four of us in our group are wine lovers, so the Silver Spirits package was well worth the extra cost. We have already signed up to go on another Viking cruise this Spring, based upon the wonderful experience we had last Fall.
The room wasn't large, but it was so well laid out and organized that we never felt cramped. The outstide balcony was wonderful. One of our favorite activities was sitting on our balcony with as glass of wine, watching the castles go by as we sailed on the Rhine River. The bathroom was also very good.
