Heard from others that they truly enjoyed this trip, so decided to try it. Was not disappointed at all. Days flew by quickly because we were so busy in a nice casual way. Up early for breakfast and then off to a tour each day. Some days were full tour days with some walk around and some on our own to wander.
We had time to play cards with old friends and enjoyed meeting new ones. Freedom to enjoy the sundeck for most of the trip was great with one morning a guided tour on deck of both sides of the river. This was one of the highlights.
Evening starting with a nice dinner with new and old friends and ended in the lounge. Some nights dancing to the lovely music and some nights playing team games or listening to guest musicians or a presentation of glass blowing or some educational theme.
The staff were wonderful but have to highlight our cruise director. He was above excellent.
He was well versed in every aspect of this adventure. There were no questions he could not answer and he took care of everyone's special issues. There was one time, someone was too long on a tour and missed their bus back to the ship. The lady could not walk with others who choose to walk back to the ship. The cruise director just called a cab for her and away she went.
Another time a woman fell and broke her foot on the steps. One of the staff accompanied her to the hospital, acting as her interpreter and also being ready to pay for the bill, in case the injured person's insurance wouldn't cover it.
All in all, with the diversity being offered, time was well spent in enjoyment, learning and meeting some wonderful people.
I'd highly recommend Viking for their care of each individual person on board and of course what they offer.
Cabin was small but adequate. We had enough room for all our clothing and other belongings.
