On a Viking river cruise that was supposed to have assigned seating (because of multiple languages) the hotel manager told me that "Germans like assigned seating, so they get it on this side of the ship; Americans don't like it, so they find a spot on that side of the ship; and the English do as they're told." In addition, because my TA made an error and booked my flight home a day late, I could not use the $65 pre-paid airport transfer. In a cab the next day I learned that the fare from the dock to the airport was $15. I wrote mostly to get my $65 back, which they very promptly refunded; but by mail I also received a $500 voucher good on any cruise with them for the next 2 years.
