This was our first river cruise and we weren't sure what to expect. Not to worry. The 7 day cruse down the Rhine was everything we expected and more. The cruise director (Daniel) was one of the highlights of the cruise. He was funny and engaging and always so helpful with any problem we might have. He should get a raise. The level of service was absolutely wonderful. And the side trips were both educational and fun. Loved the day we toured the windmills, and the castles and cathedrals we saw were spectacular. Another side trip we loved was a day trip through the Black Forest. Absolutely beautiful, and the guides we had were so knowledgeable. We were more than satisfied with the ship, the food, the service and the wonderful excursions. We're going on another Viking river cruise next summer. This time down the Rhone river. Can hardly wait!
We were more than satisfied with our cabin. The size was adequate, and the room was very nice. Loved the bathroom shower. One of the things we most enjoyed was sitting on our balcony in the evening and watching the countryside slowly pass by as we had a glass (or two) of wine.
