We had the crew of the Alsvin but we were on the Viking Modi. We were notified of the change in ships because of low water levels but ended up being able to sail on Viking Modi for our entire trip on Thanksgiving week. We really had an excellent time. The included tours were great and so was the one additional tour we took. This is definitely the way to travel - you can do as much or as little as you want. You can go on group tours or strike out on your own anytime you want. Staff were truly exceptional - very friendly, accommodating, spirited, fun, and most assuredly competent and super organized. The Hotel Manager, Program Director, and Concierge were truly exceptional. The Hotel Manager was wonderful, even going out of his way to accommodate a special request from a passenger. The Program Director and Concierge quickly adjusted the tours when they saw that there were some elderly people with walking issues and by the second day started offering "Leisurely Tours" for those groups as well as the regular tours and even some more active tours for the adventurous groups. They really did provide something for everyone. The chef and his staff were truly outstanding and prepared the most amazing food - every single meal was delicious. The Taste of Austria was beyond compare. The head of the dining room and his staff were very friendly and charming. The stateroom staff were very efficient, unobtrusive, and friendly. We never saw one frown on any of the 50 crew's faces. Read Less

My husband and I travel often, however, this was our first Viking Cruise. It will definitely not be our last. Everything about this cruise was top notch. Crew members were amazing They were always pleasant and went out of their way to accommodate any reasonable requests made by any of the guests. They also did a great job of handling the the unreasonable complaints made by guests.[One person complained of no balcony after booking a room with no balcony!?] The Longship was kept spotless. Our house keeper did a fabulous job of restocking and being sure that everything in our cabin was perfect. Food was tasty and plentiful.The kitchen staff did any and everything possible to be sure to meet each passengers' specific needs. Tours were very good. I'm not a "group tour" person, so did some exploring on my own. Sites we visited were outstanding. Each evening before dinner guests were given a briefing of the following day's activities. A "newspaper"describing the following day's activities was also left in each stateroom. We were well informed of what to expect. The ship's lounge was the gathering place for the briefings and most on board activities. The on board activities were varied and always fun and/or informative. One of my favorites was the Glassblower from Bamberg. We joined folks in the lounge daily for Happy Hour and again after dinner for either scheduled entertainment or to listen to the wonderful piano playing of Nikoli. We opted to do an extra 2 nights in Budapest at the end of our cruise. The hotel was fabulous. Our room had a view of Fishermen's Bastion and the Danube. We were fortunate to have a wedding take place on the bastion that we watched from our room. Be sure to try the paprikash in Budapest! All in all I would highly recommend this Viking cruise and am looking forward to doing another within the next two years. Read Less
