August 2016 - Viking Ve to River Cruises - Europe
We really liked the smaller number of passengers and the more personal attention as compared to our ocean cruises. Great itinerary - loved the small German towns.
Food was good, but not the variety of entrees we had on ocean cruises, but after seeing the kitchen, I understand this.
Would have liked more evening lectures about the countries we visited - the ones we had were good, but with all the history there I think this was a missed opportunity.
Also really appreciated not being "kicked off the ship" at the end. The crew was most accommodating - we even came back for lunch after checking out, and were allowed to leave our bags on until later in the day.
Included shore trips were good, as were the guides (with 2 exceptions)
Evening light cruise in Budapest was a FAVORITE! As was the castle cruise
on the mid-Rhine.
Yes I would definitely recommend this cruise.
