Grand European Tour (2018)

Ours was one of many river cruises affected by low water levels on more than one river, but we'd live in Germany during a drought year back in the 70s so weren't concerned. Leaving Amsterdam a day later than ...

Less than what I read about

A big problem is low water levels which isn't in Vikings control, but the choices they made didn't make for the best vacation. Late buses, locked bus bathrooms, ugly docking area, and no show shuttle to name a few. ...

It was so easy and fun

I thought it would be an easier way to see so much of Germany and Austria than to haul my suitcase across the countries. The cabin was comfortable, My favorite part of the ship was the lounge. It was a great ...

Best Cruise

We wanted to try a river cruise and found it was so much more relaxing than ocean cruises. The service was wonderful as was the food. The small ship made it more likely to meet new people. The tours were well led ...

We chose the Grand European Cruise because the itinerary covered destinations we had not visited previously. We chose Viking because of our experience with them on our previous Russian river cruise and our ...

Just perfect

We had a great time on this cruise. Viking has small boats - only holding up to 190 passengers which is perfect for this type of cruising. There was a new port every day and the shore excursions were led by ...
