Very disappointing cruise ....Second half of France's Finest
"Six of us booked the 14 days titled France's Finest. We got only as far as Lyon on day two of the second half of that trip on the Viking Hermod. As told by other people, the ship was rendered not able to continue..."Read More

Our first river cruise, Passau to Budapest aboard the Hermod. Overall very pleased with the cruise. We did the pre-cruise in Prague, everything was well organized by Viking. The tree days gave us time to adjust to the time change before boarding the boat. The Viking included excursions in Prague and on the boat were top-notch, their fleet of buses were noteworthy for cleanliness and ...

We recently cruised the Danube River on the Viking Hermod riverboat. This was our second river cruise with Viking, having cruised on the Rhine River in June of 2018. Overall, while we greatly enjoyed the trip, we both felt that some aspects of the trip were below the level of what we experienced last year. We booked this cruise a few months before the sailing and the only cabins remaining ...

We sailed the Passage to Eastern Europe with the added pre-extension in Prague. Overall Viking is very organized in terms of transporting you from place to place. Starting at the airport, there was a Viking Rep waiting for us. We were kept waiting for another couple, who never showed, for an hour and a half. Here’s where some common sense should’ve kicked in. Maybe wait a half hour and then take ...

I chose this cruise to see parts of the world that I have not seen. The crew were fantastic, always smiling and ready to assist. They all seemed to enjoy their job and were happy to be there. That makes a difference. The ports were incredible, the scenery splendid. Be ready for lots of walking. The tours were fantastic, the buses were clean and air conditioned. Bottles of water always ...

A river cruise has been on my bucket list for years. We spent two days in Budapest before getting on the ship and three days in Prague after the cruise. PERFECT! The ship was clean and comfortable. The French balcony suited our needs. You really don't need a balcony since there are numerous areas on the ship to get better views. We visited five different countries. I liked that the dining ...

I chose this cruise based on the reviews by prior cruisers and the ads seen on TV for Viking. The ship was a nice size and the cabin (balcony) was adequate. There was plenty of storage so no problems there. Several times we were tied up next to other boats so the balcony could not be used that much in some of the ports as you were virtually inches from the balcony of the the other ship. There ...

We wanted to experience a little bit of Europe and someone told us about Viking Cruises. We had a travel agent set everything up for us. I would recommend going through an agent as they know a lot of the extra perks, like add ons. So because of of this benefit we decided to take two weeks for Europe. We spent the first week in Germany at a B&B. It turned out to be a wise thing to do...I was jet ...

Went on The Rhine with Viking last year and had such a fabulous time we couldn't wait to go on another Viking cruise! The Danube Waltz was one we had thought of before and it ended up being better than we thought it would be. The staff were incredible. Everyone could not do enough for us! The food was outstanding. The staff was attentive enough that if something wasn't to your liking they would be ...

This was a prefect way to get introduced to Viking Cruise Line, the Boat was fantastic, as were the crew and food. Lots to do and see, with plenty of time to rest if that is what you are looking for. Tours were great, but the tour guides were exceptional. Everything Viking does is seamless, fights, pick up at the airport, transfer to the boat, was excellent. Food was theme based to whatever city ...

This cruise came highly recommended by my mother and stepfather as they sailed a few years prior. I had never been on a cruise so was a bit hesitant that I might feel "stuck", but LOVED the ports and trips into all the cities! We saw so much and did a great deal of walking- which was great. All excursions were highly organized and the staff was efficient and professional. The entire staff were ...
