We wanted to see the tulips and we had to meet our friends and this cruise fit into our schedule. Unfortunately, I got sick the third day and missed a tour I was counting on. This wasn't an anomaly as most of the passengers got sick at one time or another and my wife got sick a couple days before the end of the cruise. This was a 24 hour gastrointestinal bug that not only affected the passengers but the staff as well. My wife and I have been disappointed that Viking hasn't offered us any compensation for any future cruises. The other disappointment I have is that, with only a few weeks left, we asked our travel agent if there were any openings on the second or third decks as the only one we could originally get was on the lowest deck. We were able to get one on the second deck after paying $800 each for the upgrade. What we weren't told was that the staterooms on that deck aren't all the same and the center passageway is off center for the boat and we upgraded to a room which was much smaller than the one we had in November 2015 when we went to Germany. All in all the cruise was pleasurable, but the above issues were both negatives in our minds concerning the overall Viking experience Read Less

We wanted to see the tulips and windmills. I saw that and so much more. I got to see so much history and art. (my passion) Everyday was so special. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and the crew where so helpful about getting our cabin ready as soon as possible. They took great care of us until it was ready, They made us feel so welcome The cabin was very comfortable and clean. I think the crew are part of what made the cruise so special, They were all so helpful and pleasant. I was treated me like VIP. The food was exceptional. I especially enjoyed the evening where we get to see the kitchen. I am amazed that they can create so much wonderful food in such a small space. I was so pleased with the interesting excursions every day and that optional ones are available. I look forward to taking another cruise with Viking. Read Less

I made this cruise with a long time friend who loves to travel, loves Christmas, and loves to shop, like me! Our transfer to the longship went off without a hitch. Our ship was the Skadi. What a wonderful crew! They knew our name, attended to our needs promptly and with a smile. The ship was terrific and we loved our cabin which was Stateroom 305 on Veranda (A) The port and shore excursions were terrific. Loved the listening packs. So helpful! The guides were locals who really knew about the area and gave interesting tidbits which made it even more interesting and gave us a real connection with the city/town. We loved having the time on our own and instructions were always clear as to how to get back to our ship or the pick-up bus. The time schedule was easy for us and we had time to do everything we wanted with out stress or hurry. We thoroughly enjoyed all the entertainment evenings as well. Sharon and I met some wonderful people that we enjoyed hanging out with. Our transfer from ship to airport was easy tho it left so early that it was still too dark and we would have loved to have enjoyed the views on our way to Munich. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!!! It was a memory of a lifetime with a dear friend. Best river cruise I ever made! (Out of 3, & one of those was a Christmas Cruise as well) Thank you! Read Less
