Pleasant low-key cruise on nice ship with great staff

We enjoyed the Viking River of Gold trip but would rate this a 3.8-4.0 versus other European river cruises. Sightseeing in Lisbon and Porto was pleasant and interesting but not at the level of other major capitals. ...

This trip was wonderful. Our group, of four, did the pre-cruise stay in Lisbon. This gave us a chance to explore the city and learn about the history and culture. We also went to visit Our Lady of Fatima before we ...

Exceptional, enlightening

This cruise was on a smaller river cruise ship of a little over a hundred passengers plus about 30 crew. Service was very attentive without being too intrusive. The crew, particularly the guides were very well ...

Viking River-Portugal & Spain, 2105. Perfect!

We were looking for a Spring, nice weather river cruise, and an earlier cruise with Viking in Russia sold us on this line. We had never been to Portugal -- so their River of Gold seemed like a perfect fit, and it ...

This cruise was a retirement cruise, as I retired August 31, and we left for Lisbon just a week later. We purposely scheduled an extra three days in Lisbon on our own, and we scheduled private tours using Viator ...

Disappointing - Not up to expected Viking Standard

Terrific Scenery

I would call this a "popular" range cruise. The buffet was average, not inspired. The ship lacked a quiet room and the "coffee station" was often reduced to paper cups. I could not fault the staff, enthusiastic, ...
