Review summary

GREAT CRUISE!!! My only complaint is that the sun deck was closed for five days due to traveling through the various locks. I know that is unavoidable, but I think it should be explained a head of time. Otherwise, a fabulous experience!!

viking was great. We used them for the transfers, etc. and they could not have been more helpful. They greeted us at the airport for the transfer to the boat, and it went so smooth. On our return, viking not only took us to the waiting bus, but also had a rep at the airport to tell what gates to go to when we checked it. SERVICE WAS GREAT!!
