We had already cruised the Seine (with another cruise line) and then did the Danube River cruise with Viking and there was simply no comparison and no turning back - Viking was head and shoulders above the other cruise line. So when we decided on the Rhine River cruise, it had to be with Viking. The Viking staff is so professional, courteous, and accommodating; the tours are exceptional; and the meals aboard ship are extraordinary. The ship is nicely appointed and well maintained. The tour guides on both of the Viking cruises that we have taken to date were well-informed on their subject matter and very, very interesting. The onboard entertainment was wonderful. Also, the Viking reps who helped plan our cruises were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful- made cruise scheduling an easy and unstressful process. We opted for Viking’s extension in Amsterdam and that was an excellent investment of time and resources. Great, intense view of a city that we had not explored before - we would have missed a lot in this city without Viking. We opted to stay at the Pulitzer in Amsterdam - what a wonderful selection by Viking! One of our best memories of Amsterdam. Always take advantage of the Viking extensions!
One criticism - and only one - wish there was a dress code for the main dining salon. Understand when luggage is lost but not when people routinely dress inappropriately in shorts and/or jeans for dinner. Would prefer more of a luxury cruise feel when dining.
Extremely comfortable! Nicely done! Love the windows and outdoor balcony for lazy day cruising. Wouldn’t consider any other cabin except for the Owner’s Suite.
