  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

Chose this cruise on a two for one offer and free air, which was a great deal. The initial experience from my wife & I being met and greeted at the airport by Viking representatives and the arranged transportation and baggage handling to the ship was fantastic and made the start of the trip anxiety free. Arriving at the ship we were welcomed by the staff and then directed to a wonderful buffet style lunch while we waited for our room to be prepared and luggage delivered. Once in our room it was quite spacious & comfortable and amenities were very nice.

Ship was very well laid out and it made it quite easy to get around as needed. The upper deck was also quite nice and if I had one complaint was that the removable umbrellas were not up at all times that we were docked and in the full sun, a little shade would have been nice. River views were awesome.

The tours and shore excursions are first class with great locations to see and the transportation and guides were really great. Each location adding the local knowledge of the guide to the area we were visiting. Great insight for a tourist with no local knowledge of the history.

The on board entertainment was also fabulous and very well planned. Basically all I have to say is WOW!

Meals were very good and there was always a great variety of foods to satisfy the craving, whether for a local flavor or a contemporary steak & potato dinner. The drink package included with the cruise is adequate for the average drinker. I for one would not recommend the added beverage package.

This was definitely a great experience and now looking forward to our next trip. I would highly recommend Viking.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA 339

Great room with a great view of the country side as we sailed along. It was also cool to have a view while going trough the locks. The shower had a slight leak that had water flowing onto the bathroom floor, was a tad bit annoying, but was not too terribly bad.

What a charming area and it was quite interesting seeing the architecture.

Schonbrunn Palace

Nothing short of fabulous. Great guide that walked you through the city and gave you insight that you could only get from someone from there.
