Viking Astrild Cruise Review by Nikki Stein
- Sail Date: October 2015
- Destination: Europe River
It was fascinating to be in the former East Germany--we could see many of the remnants of Soviet rule in the large, boring buildings, even if they were now painted. Wittenberg was fascinating, Saxon Switzerland a revelation and we really loved Berlin and Prague--we even had a little sunshine in Prague. We did the trip to Terezen, which was very powerful.
Because our numbers were down from the sold-out cruise we were expecting, we had particularly excellent service on the two identical ships. We did find that, due to the almost constant rain that closed the upper deck area, there were few places we could go to on the ships, which made them seem quite small.
On my prior cruise several years ago, there was a morning exercise class--I was very disappointed that something like that was not offered this time.
