This was our second Viking cruise. Our first was the Grand European which was 21 days including extra days in Amsterdam and Budapest. We really like the cruise portion of this trip. The changing hotels got old quickly but we understood up from that we would be moving around. We like not having to pack up our bags every day and get up early to have them out in the hotel hall.
The ship was smaller than the long boats but offered everything the other boats offered. The food was excellent. The staff was very helpful. The included tours were very informative and well worth the time and cost.
We extended our precruise time in Berlin which we very much enjoyed learning about the historical and cultural history of this city. We visited the museums and we were especially impressed with the Pergamon museum. We were also fortunate to be here during the Night of Lights celebrating the fall of the wall. Really fun time.
