Friends chose Viking based on recommendations -- we chose to follow them. Cruise was wonderful - saw beautiful old German Cities along the way. Our stay in Prague was wonderful to see a "mini-Paris" Our stay in Paris was also wonderful ... the advertised veranda views along the river - duh,,,,,,, only cruised during the day once, so the veranda was not a feature. Crew members (save 1) were all wonderful and tried to make the cruise feel like family. The shore excursions were wonderful - the guides were extremely knowledgeable and conversant. The tour buses were "tour buses", not much else to say other than they got us from point A to B. The added wine tasting excursion was NOT worth the money - only 4 shot glasses of mediocre wine -- i.e. selling for 6 euros per bottle. the experience going through the locks was neat and to see how the ship was built to accomodate going under the bridges. One night while docked, another ship tied up to us -- had to use our common area to disembark,,,,,,,,, and outside our room their generator was so noisy at night that we had trouble sleeping -- our crew said "sorry, it has to be"........
