Thank you for the update. We are scheduled for Amsterdam to Vienna on October 20th. Any other info you care to share would be much appreciated. Despite all the busing it still sounds like the trip was worthwhile - and, by the way, did Viking offer you any special incentives, i.e., a future discounted cruise? What was their general concern about passenger expectations? Were people, as a whole, pleased with the way the changes were handled? We are anticipating much the same type of trip as you had and, even though would like a full 8 days of cruising, plan on having a wonderful time.
