Another great experience with Viking.

We chose this one because we wanted to visit two of the places on the itinerary. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately we had not read the brochure properly and had not realised that the first two and last ...

I went with my mother who is in her 80s and we wanted to end up in her childhood home of Berlin, so the Viking Elbe cruise was perfect for us. This was a lovely way to travel in comfort, style and luxury! The food ...

Elbe Not That Elegant

We have previously sailed with Viking on the Rhine, Rhone & in Bordeaux (+ 2 ocean cruises) and thought the Elegant Elbe might be good too. The landscapes at the south end were spectacular (especially the Bastei ...

This was our first river cruise and we were not disappointed.

We chose this cruise as my grandmother was born in Prague. We liked the idea of a small ship with fewer passengers than an ocean cruise. Our first 2 days in Prague were exceptional with a wonderful walking tour ...

Magical Elbe Adventure

We lived in Germany during the early 1980's and, because of political reasons, did not visit East Germany other than Berlin. This cruise was an excellent opportunity to revisit Berlin and see those cities such as ...

History and Culture While Being Pampered

We have been pleased with the personal and efficiency of Viking cruises in the past and this was no exception. The Elbe is a shallow and narrow river so our cruise ship was smaller and more intimate. I think the ...

We chose `Poland, Prague and the Elegant Elbe`because it enabled us to visit Berlin, Prague, Auschwitz and Krakow with a river cruise included. River cruising is our favourite way to travel but until this new trip ...
