Have lost track, this was either our 5th or 6th Viking River cruise, each better than the previous if that's even possible. No better way to see Europe and experience the various landscapes, countries and cultures. Literally the experience of a lifetime each and every trip. Total and absolute relaxation. Crew is incredibly accommodating to every request particularly the dining staff. Ships are immaculate down to the smallest detail. (ERW, N.J.)
Spent a few extra days in Paris pre-board and took a train to Amsterdam for a few days at the end of the cruise to start and cap off the cruise. We treated my two best friends from way back in high school to travel with us (in the adjoining Explorer Suite). While we did our best to try to prepare them for what to expect with Viking, their experience was far, far more than they anticipated.
No doubt we'll be traveling with Viking once again (only a question of where and when)! If you are undecided, don't be a "would have", "could have", "should have", just do it! Life's too short and you're worth it.
