Review summary

This was our first River Cruise and our honeymoon.  Viking took care of every detail - they thought of things we hadn't even considered (but that's what they do all day)!  The meals were like a 5Star Restaurant every night.  The Viking cruise director recommended places to eat & drink in the towns and even gave you warnings of tourist traps to steer clear.  I can't say enough about how wonderful the trip was....the only recommendation I would give Viking is that they need to provide accommodations for more active seniors like bicycles or walking tours - not everyone is 80 or can't walk too far, especially after all those wonderful meals!

Onboard Activities

After all the daytime excursions, I'd be too tired to participate anyways. The did a few things that were nice but I didn't really have time for them.

Not really geared for children which is good. Mostly adults and some older teenagers who were very well-mannered.

Ship tip

Don't bother bringing an umbrella - they have plenty onboard to provide when you leave the ship. Maybe just a rain jacket if it's raining that day.
