Overpriced for the experience

|

First, we tried to take advantage of their low airfares. However, they charged us extra to come in early and stay later since we didn’t want to use their overpriced extensions. Also, their travel group was Very ...

GREAT staff and service, mediocre food and wine. Disappointing overall!

I have been on many ocean cruises and I enjoyed the Amawaterways Christmas Market cruise so I expected about the same from the Viking Buri Rhone river cruise. I give the Buri's staff 5 STARS as well as all Viking ...

VIKING BURI

Out of all of our VIKING RIVER BOAT Cruises, this was by all counts, the worst. The staff seemed tired and not very friendly, ship had a bad odor, it must be needing a re-do, the Wifi was terrible. All of our ...

Underwhelming

We have been planning to go to the South of a France for a long time. We were very disappointed with the trip in general. We spent over $6,000.00 for a trip that was underwhelming and at times quite unpleasant. Our ...

Disappointing!

My plan for this year is to take a river boat cruise on AMA, Uniworld and Viking. Decide which I like best for planning future river trips. Loved AMA all around and of course the Prague to Budapest Danube tour ...

Food and crew were great

This cruise was a great disappointment. We only sailed 3 out of 7 days! The first delay was because of river conditions. No other explanation. We were bused to see the sites. The next delay was because the lock ...

The river cruise that wasn't.

My husband and I have been on many cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We were really looking forward to the experience of sitting on the top deck (or our own balcony which we paid extra for) and watching ...

This was our second Viking River Cruise and we were excited at the beginning because our first cruise had been such a delight. We took the Portraits of Southern France cruise in late September/early October 2015. ...

Not My Cup of Tea

The Good: The crew, the staff, the boat. We splurged on an Executive Suite and didn't regret it for a moment. Spacious and well laid out, the stateroom easily allowed this earlier-riser husband to avoid ...

The River Cruise that Didn't Cruise

I was extremely disappointed with the Viking River Cruise from which I just returned. The river was too high so we couldn't leave the port. The way the situation was handled left much room for improvement. It was ...

The Rhone river is not the Rhine (by a long shot)

The Buri is a beautiful ship with a wonderful staff. Every meal was a great experience and the service was excellent. The Rhone river is another story. The river has a muddy brown color the entire length of the ...

Overpriced and Underdelivered

From the very beginning of this cruise things went wrong. Due to the changing of ports we missed the first nights dinner due to our late arrival, although they did serve us cold soup and a stale sandwich. Captain ...
