Everything wonderful, but.......

The food, room, tours, personnel, concerts, etc. were wonderful, but the odor outside our cabin on the bottom level of the boat was horrible. I don't know whether it was sewage which had spilled or something else, ...

We chose this cruise because of the various ports of call along the Danube. We booked directly through Viking and had absolutely no issues. I have and will continue to recommend Viking to friends and family. ...
