Great Objective review, stuff happens whenever you travel.

Very informative as my husband and I are taking a 10 day Viking river cruise next week. As we are leaving older teenage children behind, wifi and Internet options are important for moms to stay connected and available (and peace of mind!). Hopefully, this won't be too much of an issue and the international plan I've purchased works.
Thank you for a great review.

Very objective for some negative experiences. We're considering our first river cruise after only 3-4 ocean cruises, and appreciate your objective experience. The ship switching is the first I've heard, but I have heard of high water disruptions, changes in stops and altered bus rendezvous. We're considering this trip because it's good bang for the buck and one of the typical routes, or the new Viking Discovery cruise that has the first 5 days by motorcoach through Bruges, Ghent, and Amsterdam, then 7+ days on ship to Basel. Bruges would be nice, but with no river, motorcoach only. But 5 out of 12 days on motorcoach, with only breakfast, a half-day guided tour in a hotel room, and motorcoach isn't exactly a river cruise.



Thanks for the comment. Glad that you found my review helpful. Good luck with your upcoming cruise. We haven't visited Basel nor Bruges, and I would like to. Since this river cruise, we have returned to ocean cruises and do a couple re-positioning cruises every year to/from the Caribbean.



Enjoyed your detailed and informative review. We have done many ocean cruises (our 1st transatlantic is next month), however, my wife has been trying to persuade me into doing a river cruise. A Viking brochure arrived in the mail today and prompted me to search for reviews. After reading about your experiences, I'm still not convinced :-).
