This was Patti Michlin and me our first Cruise with Viking. We choose to take part with the journey called “ City of Lights “ from Prague to Paris.
My Points of concern :
There where too many Bus transportations , especially in Towns and Villages that where noted on the Program such as Heidelberg where we where transported by Bus from Doc to the City of Heidelberg quite a long Distance to and again a long Distance back to the Boat.
This happened in many Destination. By Bussing your Customers we lost valuable Time , disembark , loading the Bus , driving the Distance , Little Time for Sightseeing and shopping , loading of the Bus again , driving back to the Boat , unloading the Bus and embarking the Boat. Hours and hours was spend Driving where if we Parked at the actual Destinations listed on the Program we would had more Time for actual visiting the charming Destinations.
Points of Applause :
The Staff all across the Boat was outgoing , professional , friendly and accommodating in all aspects of the Journey.
The Cuisine , especially the Daily Features where well chosen and certainly well prepared and presented. Ochsenmaul Salat , Oslo Bucco just to name a couple where among all great choicest and out of the mainstream norm.
The selection of Wine available was very thoughtful selected particularly Macon Villages by Louis Jadot.
The Dinning Room needs to know the difference from Champagne versus Sparkling Wine.
“ Not all Sparkling Wine is Champagne “
Overall our experience on the IDI Longboat is and was very memorable.
We will be back for more.
Ciao Beat Kotoun and Patti Michlin
