Viking Alruna Cruise Review by Keys traveler
- Sail Date: November 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Explorer Suite
We have never been on a river cruise or Germany before.We were concerned about the low waters in the Rhine but they managed the detours in a very acceptable fashion. Highlights: Meeting people from all over and interacting with them. Made friends with a couple from Australia whom we hope to visit some day. Lutz the cruise director was outstanding. He managed a crowd of well traveled customers flawlessly. Evelyn the hotel manager could not have been better. Enthusiastic, bubbly and always there to help. Food was excellent. Hate to say that I gained 8 pounds! .We have been on many ocean cruises but without question this is the best cruise we ever sailed on. The included excursions were well planned and informative. Don't hesitate if you want a river cruise. Viking knows how to do them. Although we had to bus around low water the transfer to a sister ship was not a major issue.
Keys traveler’s Full Rating Summary
We were lucky. We booked a Veranda Suite 60 days before the start date directly with Viking. The cabin category or better was guaranteed but could not give us a specific cabin number. Two weeks before sailing we were given the cabin number. Surprise! I guess no one cancelled a Veranda Suite so we were assigned an Explorer Suite! One of the two in the ship and the next category from a Veranda Suite.
