Review summary

We booked this cruise almost 2 years ago. It finally arrived this month. From the ease of checking in, our rooms are ready and the food was available for us to eat. The staff in the dining room, the bar and the state room attendants all did an excellent job. Program director Dave it was fabulous. Always available. We can't say enough good things about our Viking River boat cruise. This was our most relaxing vacation ever. Thanks

Cabin / Stateroom

Comfort & size adequate. When we change ships, upon entering our state room, there is a extremely noticeable smoky smell. We feel that was coming from the exhaust or sewer smell from the ship that was tied up to us

Ship tip

Besides reading...... One way to enjoy your downtime in the afternoon, play a game. We brought dominoes. That entertained us a many afternoons after our lunch.
