Since TopGear did a Vietnam trip I have yearned to see this country. Seeing Viking offer this cruise/ land based holiday, which also included Cambodia, was a dream come true. My husband and I are not adventurous enough to plan a holiday of this magnitude by ourselves. This is not a cheap holiday, but you are looked after the whole... More

My Mississippi River Cruise on French America Line was cancelled a few weeks before departure. French America Line pledged to reimburse for flight cancellation fees, but that didn't take place either. After several months of being told that payments were being "processed," including one email stating the "check is in the mail," the boat and the check are still nowhere... More

The Hungarian Hotel Manager on the ship is absolutely horrible, a horrible person with no manners. I don't understand how is she even working there? i was there last year, a philipino waiter threatened one of our european cruise staff members right there in the restaurant and the next day we got to know that he was to one to...

I am really disappointed with Viking's Customer service, which praises themselves to be have been voted one of the best cruises lines. First of all, we had a very bad experience in our second Viking cruise , this time in Portugal, April 2016. The Vessel never sailed because of the high tide. The cruise director kept saying that maybe next... More

Beware, the brochure is not the cruise. We spent a lot of time on tour buses, not stopping ported in the town we were visiting, like the brochure depicts. You get one free excursion a day and if you don't take that you stay on the boat as it goes thru the lock system all day. The food is very... More

Good, but not exceptional. And way OVERPRICED!! Ship has been refurbished, but it still has signs of age since there are obviously somethings that are not easily replaced -- like windows. Ship was parked on the other side of Chicago and the cheapest fare to get to the port was $95. Had to go through an old shipyard to get... More

This was our first river cruise and as a result, our last. Despite choosing Classic Promenade cabins - the most expensive we're told, they were in fact small, claustrophobic rooms, with twin 'bunk style' fold away beds which were very hard with only a small lightweight quilt and one pillow. The beds were folded away for the daytime leaving narrow... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
