This was our first cruise and also my retirement celebration so I wanted something special and Viking did not disappoint. Our trip had been postponed for two years due to Covid and we were a little nervous about testing but had no issues during our trip with positive results. The staff was tremendous and the food was delicious! We splurged with a Veranda suite and it was fantastic, with great amenities and perks. We did a pre-cruise extension in Amsterdam and loved it! We toured on our own and had no issues using public transportation. We chose this particular cruise because of my love for tulips, so it was essential that we visited the Keukenhof Gardens. Words cannot describe the beauty of the gardens. Another must in Amsterdam was the canal boat tour. We chose a wine and cheese boat tour and had a fun, entertaining and informative crew. Anne Frank house was also on our must do list and it’s essential that you purchase tickets in advance because they sell out months in advance.
