A little disappointed

I always heard great reviews about Viking river cruises and perhaps I was expecting too much. I found the service on board the ship to actually be less than what we've received on Royal Caribbean or even Carnival. ...

Terrific way to travel with limited mobility

Even with knee replacements my rheumatoid arthritis slows me down a bit, so I took my cousin's advice to travel Europe with a river cruise. Traveling on the Viking Kara was far more comfortable than I imagined. I ...

Despite weather, it was great!

First impressions of the boat is that it is nothing like an ocean liner. But we found our time well spent. Dining: self seating made it possible for us to choose where we wanted to sit and with whom. This ...

Once in a Lifetime

It was our first cruise, I wanted to go through Germany and I wanted the beginning of October. I did not want my first cruise to be on a huge ocean vessel. I feel we have been spoiled by Viking, I can't ...

Unforgettable in every way, words cannot describe the beauty of the area.

I saw a picture of the Rhine and thought I would never be able to go, Viking Cruises made it possible. Imagine sailing down the Rhine and experiencing all the Castles and legends from your guide, take in the ...

Most relaxing cruise I have ever been on

I choose this cruise for the small boat size as it only holds 200 passengers. I will never again go on a ocean cruise and share my vacation with 8,000 other people! Viking river cruise is the only way I will be ...
