  3. Viking Var
The cruise was a "Girls Only" trip for several who had previously travelled with Viking and we KNEW how fabulous it would be! The cabins were extremely well laid out with more than enough room for clothing storage, relaxing after a full day of adventures or just to leisurely sit on the balcony sipping a warm brandy as we cruised down the beautiful Danube. The food selection had something for everyone and the chef did a great job of interpreting local cuisine for evening dinner menu options. We chose to extend our cruise with a 3 day adventure in Prague--the first time for an add-on land excursion. Viking personnel were just as attentive on land as they were aboard ship. Viking was there from the moment we stepped off the plane until we boarded our flight for our trip back to the US--taking the angst out of navigating unknown airports, buses, or shuttles in a foreign country. Our entire experience was fabulous--from the food, to the venues, scenery, and accommodations--we couldn't have been more pleased. We hadn't even finished this trip, before we were working on where we were sailing next with Viking!

Fantastic Voyage!
