We chose this cruise because my sister and son had not been in Germany or The Netherlands before and my Mom and I wanted to go back. We needed an option that did not involve alot of traveling and getting in and out of a bus (up and down motion). My mom has a walker. We also did not want the typical cruise where you are at sea several days and do not see significant land. We wanted to visit cities, etc. We picked a river cruise, and Viking is the 1# river cruiser! We really like the smaller size. We did not want a casino, a lot of dance contests, etc. We had been on 3 Holland America, and really loved them, but we were tired of that. We wanted a small ship. We also did not want too strenuous (we did an expedition ship from Iceland to Greenland, it was great, but my mom could not always land in Greenland. This cruise forfilled our expectations, so now we are going to Russia on Viking! Read Less

Sailed on the Viking Lofn out of Budapest on July 13, 2015. Wonderful new ship, friendly crew, knowledgeable tour guides and great techy earphones to hear guides. No need to miss anything if you aren't directly behind the guide. Viking personnel where waiting at the airport to pick us up and we went directly to the ship for a lovely bunch. We mostly ate in the dinning room and met new fellow travelers every day. Two concerns I have: this is not a cruise for newlyweds - and I felt bad for the couple on our ship - unless you like traveling with your parents/grandparent/great-grandparents. This is also not the cruise for folks needing walkers - yes, there were 3 or 4! They did their best to get in/out of some of the bus trips, but forget trying to push a walker on cobblestones! These dear people waited too long for this trip or choose the wrong venue. Loved the local entertainment on featured nights - glass blower, folk dancing/singing, classical music with comedy, a well as guest singing participation and dancing (are we really still doing YMCA?!). Had to disembark half way through do to low water and change to our sister ship the Vidar to complete the cruise to Amsterdam. No problem, didn't miss anything, handled well, 3 hour bus trip wasn't a burden. Great trip and we highly recommend it! Read Less
