Excellent experience, I highly recommend this river cruise and viking.

Sail Date: June 01, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 221

I hesitated to book a 14 day cruise on any boat but Viking came highly recommended.  To sum it up, everything Viking advertised on their web site, in their videos and in their brochures is not only true but they exceeded all of our expectations.  Service was excellent and the food was much better than expected. All of the Viking provided tours and tour guides were as good or better than any tours I have been on any time or any where.

If someone is looking for a vacation that truly provides for your every need and anticipates your every desire then this is it.

Make sure you stop at an ATM and bring plenty of Euros. Bring good walking shoes (not flip flops or open toed shoes). Unless you are a heavy drinker do not buy the open bar plan, we drink plenty and the drinks are reasonable and great quality.
The viking included tours are better than the add ons
