Good, but not quite awesome

Only reason giving it a 4 star is the accomodations: Bed was somewhat uncomfortable, some outside noise like a pump would go on, (cabin 101), which was annoying, and the TV movies would just go off during part of ...

An excellent photographic and historical adventure without having to travel far.

This was my first Viking cruise. I chose it because of the historical significance of visiting first hand all of the sites along the Rhine river. The ship and accommodations were excellent. More importantly, the ...

Fun, but not relaxing.

We chose this sailing so we could visit Christmas markets. We were not disappointed! Many markets, large and small, throughout the various ports. We were disappointed that we had to be bussed into so many towns ...

We are sitting in Paris now after disembarking the viking hiln in Basel…after the first couple of outstanding days on the ship, some hiccups developed that disappointed us a little. The food quality went down ...
