Wow....can the rivers handle these many? I know some will be replacement for Viking's older ships but still....

I think, for some of the itineraries, it will also mean more "rafting" .Thankfully Viking has their own piers at some ports, and hopefully they will build more as they add more ships.
Ports like Rudesheim or Bamberg could be packed with people.
Thanks so much for all the info! Since this will be our first river cruise, I have read lots of differing reviews, and for this very reason, we decided it really wasn't worth the extra $$ for a French balcony. Yikes, we booked on the main deck and there were only 7 cabins at an incredibly good price, but our TA said the cabins had a bit more storage. So, we are hoping for the best.We were on an Avalon cruise last summer on the deck with small upper windows. We were so satisfied we are booking another in same type room for next year
Has anybody else booked the main deck with the small upper windows? If so, how was it in regard to this issue? Thanks in advance.

The nickname is "Aquarium Class" After you get tied up and go through the locks on your first cruise, you will see why having a balcony isn't worth the extra $$ to some of us.
