Nearly everything about our Viking experience was excellent - booking, meeting and transportation to/from airports, welcome on the ship, room accommodations, dining, shore excursions, Dominic our cruise director, super-friendly and helpful staff, and much more. Our first Viking cruise has probably ruined us from ever booking another cruise company. The Grand European Tour was wonderful - the ...

We started on Skadie, we loved everything about it. Especially the hospitality captain. The Dinner host went so far above & beyond it would be difficult to describe. Her services were so outstanding, they all worked so well together. The room service was discrete & accommodating. Everyone was so friendly and seemed happy in their jobs. Moral is #1 in any business. We changed ships 1/2 way ...

The entire staff on the cruise always went above and beyond to make sure everyone had everything they needed. One night we came onboard after the dinner was over (after 9:30) and the staff even prepared a special dinner for the two of us. The entertainment on board was great and very educational. I loved the fact that each stop had an included excursion. The guides were every knowledgeable and ...

We wanted to see the Tulips and Windmills - now and then. The rooms were too small. We had to take turns getting ready in the morning as well as other occasions. There also was not enough room to put our suitcases under the bed. One went in the closet and the other was in the room close to the bathroom. All other aspects of the cruise were great. I have recommended Viking cruises to many ...

Wanted to see Amsterdam and the tulips in March. Was amazing. Great ship director and staff. The staff went above and beyond to make sure every need was meet. They even cooked a couples meal for us when we came back from our own sight seeing in Amsterdam at 10pm. The on board educational talks were very inspirational. The cruise was relaxing and we were treated like dignitaries. The meals were ...

This was our first river cruise and we loved it! Embarkation and disembarkation were quick and easy. Viking makes sure all the passengers are well taken care of. The staff was courteous and attentive. The ship was immaculate. The food was great. Excursions were well organized and interesting. We had a group of twelve and had a blast! We enjoyed the nightly entertainment and even won a ...

We knew people who had gone on the same trip. We were considering a Viking river trip and this one was what we wanted. We were able to see the Ann Frank house in Amsterdam, which is something we had really wanted to do. We were glad to have that extra time at the beginning of our trip to explore Amsterdam a bit before embarking on our cruise. The ship, Saadi, was great. Our cabin, while not ...

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 originally scheduled gave us another day on our own (Heavy rain would have made tulips + windmills most unpleasant.) and we had one well-organized and well-predicted ship-swap. The ...

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. Add to that an assistant that lack awareness of senior pacing which is important since that is your cruisers, turn around and look lady, I shouldn't have to chase after her because ...

We commenced what was supposed to be our Viking Grand European river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam with a Prague extension on 08/08/18. 3 days prior to the cruise departure from Budapest on 11/08/18, Viking emailed us advising that our planned overnight stay and sail away from Budapest as per the planned itinerary was changed due to low river levels. This was the start of our river cruise ...
