Where to even begin... everything was exceptional!
The food... every meal was like dining in a five star restaurant, no matter where you ate on board, from the formal dining room to the veranda aft. What really made the experience special for me was the local specialties from each port of call.
The accommodations... our stateroom was far more spacious than I am used to from prior (ocean) cruises. It was a decent size for any hotel room, let alone a floating one! (See the picture I attached).
The crew... everyone on the staff was exceptionally accommodating to me, especially during the excursions when (admittedly) I would be the last in line whenever we walked anywhere.
The view... the Wednesday "cruise day" was to me breathtaking. Every time we turned a bend in the Rhine there was another castle! And we sailed right by the Lorelei!
The shipboard entertainment... nothing beats seeing the Captain dancing in Lederhosen!
I can't wait to do this again! Viking, I'll be back!
Comfortable and far more spacious than I expected! (See picture)
