A good experience

Sail Date: October 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is somewhat dated\, but well managed and maintained. No elevator; only steps to upper levels.

Pros: Tours and excursions\, especially Heidelberg\, Strasbourg\, and Black Forest. Excellent tour guides.

Cons: Rainy days

Recommends Viking Helvetia? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship/decor needs updating.
Food and Dining
Overall the food was quite good; but strange that the servings of seafood were quite small. Too bad no brewed decaf coffee was available; only powdered instant decaf.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our bed needed a new firm mattress.
Service and Staff
Staff were very responsive and eager to be helpful.
Enjoyed the lecture on the EU; and the evening of French cabaret music.
