Beware of Viking Cruise Line

I chose this trip because I had traveled with Viking twice before and had two wonderful trips - both were top of the line. Not this one. We were told that Viking now has 58 ships and is building two more. With a ...

Quite a boring cruise with awful communication from the staff

We have been on several Viking river cruises before, in German and Russia and had very good holidays. The problems with communication on this trip started as we arrived at the port when the person who was supposed ...

Exceptional Chocolate, Staff and New Friends!

My first ever river cruise was exceptional! I have been on ocean cruises, but after being on the Forseti, I will never go back. The Viking Staff that met us at the airport was kind, very understanding that most of ...

Our Bordeaux region Viking River Cruise was fantastic

This was our 6th Viking river cruise and it was perhaps the best so far. The pre cruise 3 days in the Loire Valley set the tone, it was a very pretty venture and we thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely bus trip down ...

Very low key and laid back cruise.

Thought this would be good for our first Viking cruise. We wanted a more laid back experience and smaller boat. We had a great time, and can't wait to go on another Viking River Cruise. The crew was great, always ...

An OK river cruise overshadowed by previous Viking experiences

This was our 8th Viking River Cruises river experience. If the "Chateaux, Rivers, and Wine" itinerary had been our first Viking river experience we might have come away unimpressed, disappointed, and perhaps not ...
