The Viking Var staff were so helpful and professional. The pre-cruise extension in Prague was spectacular and the Marriott Prague was in the middle of all the action and within walking distance to everything. The local tour guides partnering with Viking are so well-versed in the history of their local towns and more. Excursions were very well organized and included music performances were top-notch (traveling with 3 professional musicians). I wish the excursion descriptions were a little more detailed such as listing how long the coach rides to the site to allow us to plan better, as well as indicating how much free time we have within each tour. We found there was not enough time to "shop" without losing educational content by leaving the tour. Also it would have been helpful if the "Behind the Scenes at the Lipizzaner Stables" indicated that there is "no show involved" with this tour. We were all disappointed that we did not get a show. Usually "behind the scenes" means a "meet & greet after the show" (at least that's what it means in Las Vegas on the Strip and all concert venues). Aside from that, the food, cabins, staff, on-board educational presentations were outstanding! We also love that we spent more than one day in Vienna and Budapest! That's the main reason we picked this particular cruise. Thank you!

Veranda Stateroom

Stateroom was extremely comfortable. Balconies make a difference in the enjoyment! Our room steward Maria Rosa was spectacularly attentive to all our needs.
