Chose this cruise because it is a small ship. We like the small ships as they are more customer friendly. We had not been on this one before. This was our first time on Viking and we will go again. Everyone, entertainment (Stein), ships crew were very nice and friendly. The food was excellent and the chef came around almost every dinner time to see how we were doing and if the food was fine. We even took a tour of the kitchen and could ask any question about the service or if we wanted any special food. We explored every town the ship docked at and our guides were always very helpful. There was some sort of entertainment every night whether it was the crew or someone or group coming on board the ship. Our cabin was always kept clean. We were notified along the route when ever there was something interesting that we were going to be going by. I can not say enough about the friendliness and courtesy of everyone on this ship.

Great food. Nice that there was always some standard, right side of the menu items. Nice that there were two options of where to dine. Only bad meal was the celebration night, everybody scrambled for seats and buffet at same time. Buffet worked great at breakfast and lunch since is was over an extended time. Service excellent and staff very attentive. Excursions were good mostly, except one private walking tour we took in Amsterdam was much better than the sponsored one. Pickup and transfers flawless. There was a good amount of free time but little what I would call scenic river cruising. A little surprised at age of group. We are in our mid 60's and the vast majority were 70+. Maybe we should have expected this being tulips and windmills. This was a problem on excursions since the slower people set the pace or the groups got widely separated and at times people got lost/left behind. Wheelchairs dont work well on gravel or cobblestone. Would had been disappointed with a veranda or suite since we were sometimes docked sandwiched between other boats, although when docked the last place we wanted to be was in our cabin. TV and wifi didnt work or was spotty, but again we spent very little time in the cabin and tv and computers are not why we took the voyage There was plenty of seating (indoor and outdoor) on top or in the lounge areas. The room was good (french balcony) shower a little tight but fine. Bed was the best ever, I even made an inquiry to find out more info on it (beat our 3k pillow top hands down). Overall was a very relaxing, quiet, and safe time. Still working on losing the pounds I gained even with all the walking. . Read Less
