I wanted a special Christmas gift for my wife and she loves all things Christmas. The draw of magical Christmas markets in beautiful historic settings is what drew me to join this cruise.

We allowed Viking to do our flight arrangements. Most all were great. More on that later.

The arrival and checkin in Paris was very smooth as has always been our experience with Viking. We enjoyed the offered activity of a bus/walking tour around Paris. While the weather was cold as expected it was kind enough not to rain and unfortunately no snow. Paris was visually spectacular at night all decorated for Christmas. The transfer to Trier was very pleasant and the stops were amazing. Getting on the boat and setup was again handled extremely well by the Viking staff. The room was very nice and the heated bathroom floor was very comfortable. Cruising down the Mosel, Rhine, and Main was beautiful. The daily excursions were fantastic and as always the staff were amazing. Even when some of the Christmas markets decided to close early before we got there the cruise director found an alternative. A brilliant alternative by the way. On board the staff were so friendly and service oriented taking care of any and everything. The meals were absolutely delicious and the number of choices was amazing. For every wrinkle the Mother Nature threw out or local agencies the Viking staff found great alternatives and kept everyone well prepared and informed. The tour of Prague was wonderful and we did not want our Viking adventure to end. The Viking organization were again amazing getting us organized and to the airport counter. Our first flight had my wife and I separated which we did not find out until boarding the plane.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Very well appointed and comfortable both the sleeping area as well as the bathroom. The heated floor is wonderful and the shower is very nice. Hardly used the balcony as it was very cold (winter).
