The entire trip was just excellent. The cabins were nice, they were small, but that's to be expected on a boat. Everyone treated you as if you were royalty. The food was great. The tours were outstanding. I had a minor issue with the PA not working in my room which caused me to miss one excursion, but I got past that okay. My laundry was done fast and very professionally presented to me. The crew and the waiters were very nice. The waiters were fun, always joking, yet very professional. We had an issue where the river water was too low due to a summer drought. We had to pack up, and were bused 3 hours to an identical boat. Same cabin, same good service, same everything. We were friendly with the crew of the Engvi and were unsure of what might await us. I can't remember the name of the second boat, but the whole thing was done almost seamlessly. The boat's entertainment officer [Barry] was very talented, and always had everyone laughing. I told him I wanted to visit Scotland, and since he is Scottish, I thought he would be a good guy to talk to. He spent quite a while telling me what to see and where to go. He is one great guy. I would highly recommend Viking to anyone. Thank you for making my vacation memorable. Read Less

This was a wonderful introduction cruise to so much of Europe. The guides were excellent and very informed of the area in which they guided. The food was outstanding every day! Cabins were perfect, clean and very well taken care of by the staff. An exercise room/area would have been welcomed. Though there is walking on the tours, it is not the same as a good workout. There were plenty of activities to select from or take some days off for down time, which we did or experience the towns on our own. So glad Viking was able to deal with the low water situation, thank you! Our embarkation was a little mixed up - Viking personnel did not show up at the airport pickup point - but our Cruise Director immediately responded and took care of our getting to the ship on time from the airport at no cost to us. All in all this was fabulous and we so enjoyed our trip and all that we experienced and the new friends we now have because of this cruise. Read Less

As this was our first river cruise we had nothing to compare it to but it exceeded our expectations. The staff were fantastic, all attentive, friendly and welcoming. Every stop along the Danube, Main and Rhine was wonderful. Well thought out and guided tours informative. Meals were excellent, not large portions but that meant one could have dessert at every meal, and if you wanted more....just ask! Read Less

I had wanted to visit Europe for decades, and, being recently retired, I felt this was the time to go. I wanted a no-hassle experience. A river cruise with the "hotel" traveling with me, instead of having to pack and unpack at every stop, was extremely appealing. The moment my wife and I arrived at our cruise ship, we knew something was different. The relaxed, yet organized atmosphere, the cordial staff members, the modern setting, and the sun deck all portended a remarkable experience. We were taken care of like royalty. The food was delicious and abundant; our veranda stateroom, though compact, was comfortable and well-appointed; the staff consistently went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and were enjoying ourselves. Even though several of the cities we visited were in Germany, we found that each city had its own personality, and, though we only got a slight taste of the city, that taste was always well-organized and informative, with well-prepared tourist guides. Everything that happened before our cruise and afterwards felt like "reality." But, as I mentioned to my wife as our plane landed in our home city, the cruise felt like "a dream." There is nothing that we've experienced that can compare to it. Read Less
