Friends raved about the quality of Viking River Cruises, so when we found what we felt to be a great deal, we decided to indulge ourselves. We loved every minute! Crew on the Delling was totally professional and also very welcoming, attentive and fun. They appeared to enjoy what they did, and set that mood for all. There were so many “little touches” that enhanced the experience: aperitifs at dockside as we returned from shore excursions, French accordion player to welcome us back onboard one afternoon, evening stop just to tour a small medieval town at night, and more. The food was wonderful. We always opted to return to eat lunch rather than eating in towns. And it was so convenient—we always docked at the town, so never a long hike to return. My party of 4 women all over 60 plans to take another Viking River Cruise in the near future. We feel confident that, even though it may not be on the Delling, it will be just as great.
