The itinerary was good, but the sights seemed to repeat themselves. We met many really nice people and befriended some of them. The ship was very nice and very clean. For the most part the staff was good although the program director was NOT very organized, especially on our tours. It seemed that we had long waiting periods that could have been filled with other activities.
Our cruise could not have been better. The excursions were tops.. The food was amazing and the cruise employees could not have been better. We totally enjoyed the entire trip.
We had a wonderful time on this cruise. The ports were beautiful and the service on the ship was excellent. All the excursions were wonderful and we enjoyed both the included and the optional ones. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and super friendly.This is my second Viking cruise and I am considering booking for a third one with Viking.
The only issue I had was the docking of the ship changed from a port close to Amsterdam Central Station to a port far away from the City Center. Viking ran shuttle buses to take guests into town but it was still quite inconvenient.
I liked the way they took such good care of us, seemed to always be there to help.
Everything was first cabin, rooms, food, and service!
They should have a small coin op laundry for the guests that want to do their own!

Don't over pack, no need for formal ware unless you want.
don't go on all the excursions or you will feel like you are on fast forward and miss the feeling of relaxation.
First time on a river cruise. We found the ship very different than an ocean cruise, but it was very nice.
