We have just returned from a Nile cruise on the Royal Viking. Like previous reviewers I was not sure that I would like a cruise but it turned out to be one of our best holidays. I can only re-iterate the opinions of other passengers - the food was very varied, of excellent quality, and there was plenty of it. We didn't have stomach upsets and I didn't hear of any other passengers being ill. Hygiene on the boat was very good with compulsory handwashing before going into the restaurant and bar, and particularly when returning back to the boat after sightseeing. The staff were courteous and friendly, our guide Hussein was excellent and full of enthusiasm for his subject. The towel artists made us laugh every night when we returned to the room to see a crocodile wearing sunglasses, a monkey hanging from a coathanger, and more ... For us, it was a great holiday and we shall go back on The Royal Viking.
