Chose Viking based on friend’s recommendation. Not disappointed at all. I’m guessing they’re expensive compared to other river cruise lines, but if there is any way you can afford it, spend the extra money. One thing about river cruises we didn’t realize were the several possible disruptions due to weather, river depths and lock delays (you go through 50 some locks). None of which are Viking’s fault of course. I can’t imagine any company handling these annoyances any better. They keep you informed, answer your questions before you ask them and absorb all costs and lost revenue gracefully. The ship itself and cabin were in great condition. No frayed edges or deferred maintenance. The dining was outstanding and every meal was looked forward to. We purchased the drink package because we were traveling with another couple and knew we would be having a few cocktails each day outside of mealtimes (local beers and wines are complimentary at lunch and dinner). It was well worth it for us and our friends, but obviously an individual decision. We only took included tours and were happy. Anthony, the entertainment director was great. And, Stephen, our bartender was the best and made our trip better.

Excellent trip!
