Viking’s Danube Waltz (4): More Austria
June 4: Durnstein and Melk, Austria
Cruising Austria …continued from part 3… Viking encourages you to buy local wine and beer and stash it in your stateroom cooler. In practice this is superfluous because there is so much of it aboard, especially with the premium drinks package. You only have to lift a finger or a wine list, and it’s there 24/7.
However, if you’re serious about wine or cocktails, the premium “Silver Spirits” package is worth $300 per cabin. (It also includes espresso and other specialty coffees, juices and mineral water.)
Acceptable house wine and beer are poured freely, but not the premium stuff, and mixed drinks cost extra.…
