We lucked out - fantastic weather (only rained on once for about 10 mins), we had no water level issues, and although we had to swap ships half way through, due to a broken lock, Viking handled the entire swap seamlessly. We have had great experiences on on several ocean cruises (not Viking) before this Grand European river cruise with Viking - OMG this is a whole different world. I can't list all the pluses: the smaller ship is so easy to get around and less people getting on/off in each port; you are able to get to know most of the staff; the ability to find a seat in the lounge or on the top deck when you wanted to; the free water in our room and when we left the ship each day; never being hounded to pay for photos that a ship's "professional photographer" would insist they take of you; the relaxed atmosphere; not having to get on a bus for every single shore excursion; the list goes on and on. We traveled with my parents (in their mid-80s, we are in our late 50's) We stayed in a French Balcony room at the end of the ship. Loved being able to open the large sliding door to watch the world go by and enjoy the fresh air when we wanted to - but to be honest, with so much room in the lounge or the top deck, we didn't spend all that much time in the room (but again, we had post card perfect weather the entire trip) My parents had a balcony room on the 3rd level, and the extra room and the balcony to sit out on was perfect for them. We did all the included shore excursions and we were able to go back to the ship to have a relaxing lunch in every port because we were docked so close. Yes, Viking is expensive compared to the other cruises we've taken, but all of the above mentioned made it worth every penny. Read Less
