Terrible waste of money - worst cruise ever

This was our 4th cruise on Viking and as usual it was absolutely amazing. The excursions were fantastic. We started with a walking tour of Zurich & then the cog rail to the Swiss Alps. Yes it was cold and snowing, but we were in Switzerland in April, so we brought appropriate clothing. Seeing the Alps up close and personal was a dream we’ve always had. The stops we had along our journey to Paris ...

Paris to Prague was a delightful itinerary, and the cruise had a very good price with free airfare. We normally book a veranda suite on Viking river cruises, but the explorer suite price was too good to pass up. In retrospect we should have passed and stayed with a veranda suite. The explorer suite is beautiful, with lots of room and some nice extra perks, but once the ship is underway, the ...

We choose this cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary and return to Europe after a long absence. We had a great time, met lot's of great people and visited some amazing places. Everything was first class and we can't wait to book our next Viking adventure. I have already highly recommended Viking to many of our friends and would do so in a heartbeat. We loved it! The ship was beautiful, very ...

This has been on our bucket list and didn't disappoint! The staff was very attentive and professional. Smiles everywhere! We didn't have to lift a finger. Our dining room stewards couldn't have done a better job. It's a thrill to anywhere on board and be attended to so well. Breakfast- cranberry juice is waiting along with your favorite baked good. At the bar, your favorite drink arrives ...

We took the Paris to the Swiss Alps cruise in reverse from December 11-22, 2019 starting in Zurich. Viking has partnered with Marriott Hotels for accommodation pre- and post-cruise. The Hotel Renaissance is in the Technopark of low-rise buildings, but Tram #4 (blue) one block over runs to the old town. A day pass costs 8 Euro per person. Viking offered an orientation walk of the hotel area at 5:30 ...

This was our second time booking with Viking and we knew that every detail would be taken care of. The service was superior, the food was excellent and all excursions included were very well organized along with very informing guides. The small cruise made it easy to mingle with other guests, the smaller ship made it easy to get around. The hotels chosen for us in both Prague and Paris were ...

We always wanted to take a river cruise with friends and the Paris to Prague trip satisfied all our desires with stops that we wanted. We had been on several ocean cruises, but this cruise, this ship, and the Viking crew, greatly surpassed all others. Why? First, everything was included. No cost for any shore excursions. Second, the cabin was better and roomier without an additional expense. ...

Corinthian Hotel, Prague - quite a distance from city center, old bed with springs coming though, price for 2-night extension through Viking was $399 per person, price per room through hotel was $100 per night, rude employees, kept requesting toilet paper but ultimately had to take from public WC in lobby. 2. Ship - Booked a balcony room and when our luggage was brought ...

We just got back from the Cities of Light cruisetour (August 7-18th, Prague to Paris on the Alsvin) and had a great time! This was our second Viking river cruise having gone on the Danube Waltz last summer (Budapest to Prague on the Legend) which we also really enjoyed. I was worried that August would be unbearably hot and crowded. However, we found the crowds quite manageable and the weather ...

We chose this cruise because the itinerary looked very interesting, and we got to start in Paris and end in Prague. We traveled with another couple. We're all between 50-60 years old and are very active. My husband and I traveled with Avalon a few years ago for the Romantic Rhine cruise and based on that experience, we told our friends we would almost never be on the ship because we would be ...
