We would not normally have done this cruise, but it was for my Mother-in-Laws 80th and she wanted us there. We had a lovely time. Everything exceeded our expectations, from the boat, food, crew, and cabin. We have sailed Silver Seas, ... Read more

We got a great value for cruising on Viking. Every aspect of our cruise was outstanding and well organized, including switching ships because of low water on the Danube. Program Manager, Stefan, was more than outstanding, including ... Read more

You start in the Tivoli in Lisbon: Astheticlly a nice hotel. It is missing many high level hotel details. What drove many in our group crazy was that there is no shelf or place to put the soap/shampoo in the shower, leading to a more ... Read more
