Mixed views and unlikely to use Viking again

Myself and friend booked this holiday over a year in advance and was looking forward to this for a long time so I can't help feeling then that the holiday itself was very anti-climactic. We opted for getting the ...

The perfect adventure made elegant and easy.

A friend and I decided to cruise on Viking on a spontaneous whim and I’m so glad we did. We enjoyed each stop on our journey and found a perfect blend of the guided tours and exploring on our own. Each day we did ...

The Rhine Getaway

The beauty and the history was the leading factor. I chose Viking because of the stellar reviews. The food was not as elegant as I expected. I probably was looking for more of richness of the French since we did ...

You're treated like a queen!

We chose this cruise as we only wanted to unpack once. We heard from numerous people that they take care of you & every detail of your trip. We had 181 guests & 41 crew members so we never felt crowded or rushed. ...

Simply Wonderful!

Taking a Viking cruise in Europe was always on our list of vacations we wanted to experience. The on-board service and shore excursions exceeded expectations! With less than 190 passengers, it made for an ...

Lovely ship, excellent service, food not so good

Viking are very efficient, I cannot fault their communication and organisation. They organised the flights and transfers as well. However, they wanted an extortionate amount for 2 days in Amsterdam before the ...

Too much bus time at the cost of less shore time.

We purposely chose the explorer suite for the comfort it offered plus the use of our deck, watching scenery along the the Rhine river valley. Both ships were as nice as our previous cruise down the Danube and the ...

Too much walking, not enough cruise ship activities

Too much walking on uneven surfaces for a tourist with a cane. The worst part was the steep ramps in and out of the ship up the river bank to the shore. Then, I could only handle half of the windmill tour, and ...
