Mixed views and unlikely to use Viking again

The perfect adventure made elegant and easy.

A friend and I decided to cruise on Viking on a spontaneous whim and I’m so glad we did. We enjoyed each stop on our journey and found a perfect blend of the guided tours and exploring on our own. Each day we did ...

Lovely ship, excellent service, food not so good

Viking are very efficient, I cannot fault their communication and organisation. They organised the flights and transfers as well. However, they wanted an extortionate amount for 2 days in Amsterdam before the ...

Too much bus time at the cost of less shore time.

We purposely chose the explorer suite for the comfort it offered plus the use of our deck, watching scenery along the the Rhine river valley. Both ships were as nice as our previous cruise down the Danube and the ...

Too much walking, not enough cruise ship activities

Too much walking on uneven surfaces for a tourist with a cane. The worst part was the steep ramps in and out of the ship up the river bank to the shore. Then, I could only handle half of the windmill tour, and ...

Great trip

Just one optional tour off the ship did not meet my expectations. The other optional tours were good. Although the walking tour to see the windmills was a cold and blustery day we went anyway. Guide was very ...

Rhine River Cruise

We had already cruised the Seine (with another cruise line) and then did the Danube River cruise with Viking and there was simply no comparison and no turning back - Viking was head and shoulders above the other ...

Terrific River Cruise with Viking

We've always wanted to see Germany so the Rhine Getaway was a great way to do it. An unexpected bonus was the pre-cruise time we spent in Amsterdam and the post-cruise time in Switzerland that were both most ...
