My first river cruise 12-2017

Jump to last reply

Greetings I am james a 37 year old army veteran from Florida and this will be my first river cruise, This month I booked Christmas in Germany December 22-29 , Cologne to Nuremberg on the Viking Longship Tor. I have a few questions but first I would like to say, I have read the reviews positive and negative an yes I have really read the negative postings of people saying beware. Things can go wrong on any vacation either by act of god, or issues that are the cruise line fault I beat to the tune of my own drum so to make judgment of Viking based off of just reviews without experiencing them first is not how I roll. I have had people say one cruise line is awful, such and such is the best I traveled with these lines and made up my own mind so lets not turn this thread into How I am making a mistake ect and no I am not a rep for Viking or know anyone from Viking ... with all that being said off to my questions.

Day 1 Cologne, Germany
Day 2 Cologne, Germany
Day 3 Koblenz, Germany
Day 4 Miltenberg, Germany
Day 5 Würzburg, Germany
Day 6 Bamberg, Germany
Day 7 Nuremberg, Germany
Day 8 Nuremberg, Germany

1. has anyone traveled on the Viking Tor?
2. has anyone traveled Cologne to Nuremberg? 2A. what month? 2B. if in the months of December, how was the experience

3. are there any hidden fee's, I am not talking about tips or the extra Excursions, I have one included in each port so I wont be buying any extra so I can explore on my own unless I see something that really catches my eye. I am a real history nerd and love culture.

4. Can someone tell me about the meals? I hear its like a buffet style
5. my Itinerary does not show times so about what time of the evening does the ship set out to the next stop?
6.. is there any other Info you think I should know?

Thank you
