Wanted a full European river cruise and this was it. Great service - better than great - it was excellent. Loved the include excursions at every port. Tour guides were locals who really knew their town and its history. Ship crew was wonderful in every respect. Chef was great, Program Director was very entertaining, all levels of the crew pitched in where ever needed. Going through the many locks was interesting. Went through 4 countries and along the Rhine, Main, the canal and the Danube. Countryside with all the castles and vineyards was very relaxing. River cruising was much more relaxed than ocean cruising. Spent a couple of extra days in Amsterdam prior to the cruise and a few days in Prague after the cruise. Overall, the entire trip was much better than I expected. We are looking forward to a trip through France as our next river cruise and we would definitely cruise with Viking again.
Small but very comfortable. No need for a balcony as we stayed at the bow or on top deck
