Sail Date: Dec 2023

My wife and I picked this tour to celebrate her breast cancer cure. The "Laura Beats Cancer Cruise" started in Amsterdam with the two day extension offered by Viking. We toured the Anne Frank House and toured the canals lit up brightly for Christmas.

We started our tour on the Viking Eir because the Mani was trapped by high water in Basel. Before long the high water would become our problem too.

Arriving in Cologne we were told by the ship crew that high water would detour us the following day in Koblenz.

Cabin Review

We had a French Balcony on both ships which was fine if slightly cramped. We had to coordinate movements in the cabin because there was very little room around the Queen sized bed.

The beds were made without a top sheet, a growing trend in Europe that I could do without.

The bathroom was small but well equipped. The heated floor is a winner and the shower is fine once you figure out how to close the doors properly to prevent from flooding the bathroom floor.
