"Cruising Above Expectations"

Sail Date: October 01, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The food was outstanding and the Viking crew were the absolute best. We were taken care of from beginning to end. The whole trip ran like clock work and we would love to give our guide "Monique" extra credit for everything. There was nothing she couldn't handle. The Fontane ship was fun because we cruised the smaller rivers and the number of people on board was fun because of its size.

Pros: Viking River Cruise's crew and efficiency

Cons: No ammentities on board probably because it was a smaller boat

Recommends Viking Fontane? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Angelika was a suberb chef and her efficiency and food was beyond expectations. Kudos to her and her staff on the Fontane.
Cabin / Stateroom
The beds were firm and comfortable. The shower was great and next time I would pack less to accommodate the room's size. However, there was sufficient room under the bed to put suitcases. Very efficient use of space.
Service and Staff
We couldn't have asked for more. They were outstanding......
Dari the nightly entertainment was outstanding and very accommodating to the guests. The additional entertainment was OK, but not fantastic. The briefings were very good and very understandable. Each day's briefing was informative and precise.
Would see if you could get a masseuse on board for the people who walked allot when off the ship. There is time each day for people who want to relax more.
Heidelberg, Germany
Loved this town
Rudesheim, Germany
Bernkastel, Germany
Trier, Germany

Don't Miss: Take the bus to Trier. It is worth seeing the countryside and leaves time for shopping. The tour was nice, but it didn't leave enough time for shopping.
Wurzburg, Germany
Loved it.
Cochem, Germany
Braubach, Germany
