CRUISE: A trip to central Europe

A Unionville friend just returned from one of those Viking River Cruises you've heard about-- she and her husband are celebrating a notable anniversary-- and said they had a wonderful week, full of European history, architecture, culture, languages and art. They visited numerous historic sites in Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany and said they were extremely well taken care of on board the ship, with fantastic food (wine and beer were included in the fee) and an accommodating staff. She said she loved being able to relax on the deck and just watch the spectacular scenery unfolding before her.
I asked about her fellow passengers on the small ship and she said that they were age fifties and up, from all over the United States, and very well traveled and educated -- not a surprise given that Viking advertises on public broadcasting.
