Loved flying into Paris, spending time there, traveling to Germany, Luxemborg, Switzerland and altering further travel to Warsaw, Poland before returning home. The excursions were outstanding. Adequate timet to enjoy everything in the countries' culture. However, Found onboard dining less spectacular than on Vantage. Chef Bobby was very friendly and food was lovely just less variety than ...

Trip from hell and Viking didn't care

Itinerary sounds good, but that is only if you would enjoy an 8hr bus ride from Paris to the ship in Germany. The first morning after eating a tainted breakfast and between 4-5hrs later, I came downwith the worst case of food poisoning anyone has ever had. Viking has decided not to include any medical personal in their crew, so I layed in my cabin for the next 3hrsrapidly dehydrating. When we ...

My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (22+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our fourth cruise with Viking; the previous cruises were in China, Egypt and the Grand European Tour. The Paris to the Swiss Alps Cruise started in Paris on July 20, 2019. Our flight from Florida was arranged by Viking and flew through Frankfort, then to Paris. No ...

We booked our cruise based on our own research and our travel agent’s recommendation. It’s not often that our entire vacation ends up being better than we hoped, but this trip truly was. From the time we got to the airport in Raleigh, NC to the time we returned there, everything was handled by Viking with exceptional results. Every detail was well thought out and expertly executed. The staff ...

The cruise was the area we wanted to see. We loved Paris and the beauty of the Alps. Our cruise was great. The food was exceptional and the service by all the crew members was great. We enjoyed the scenery and most of the tours. We would recommend Viking to any of our friends. We felt everything was first class and everyone tried to be very helpful. The cruise was very relaxing. The ...

We had never seen this part of Europe and wanted to see it. We were met at the airport in Zurich by the Viking representative and had a nice drive to Lucerne, where we stayed for 3 days prior to embarking in Basel. Lucerne was delightful, we stayed at the Hotel Schweizerhof, a deluxe hotel by the lake and by the chapel bridge. Viking guides there were excellent, Jacqueline showed us Lucerne ...

Disappointed. Exhausted. These are just two of the takeaways from my journey along the Rhine River aboard the Viking Kvasir and Viking Idi. About a week before our cruise, we were emailed that low river levels may necessitate changes to our itinerary. Once we were on the ship, the decision to deviate became more certain because of the low river levels. According to all of the information we ...

We did the Danube cruise several years ago and knew that this trip would be a great compliment. We know that Viking provides the very best river trips. The ship is a masterpiece of design and function. The cabin is artfully designed for comfort and efficiency although we were in a water-level cabin with a small widow (the only cabin available when we booked). The trip offers many options and ...

From our pre cruise stay in Amsterdam through our post cruise extension in Lucerne, Viking took care of our needs and logistics superbly. Every effort was made to insure our trip was above expectations. With the low water levels on the Rhine, our captain expertly navigated the River. A slight adjustment was made to our itinerary in Heidelberg to allow the captain to take advantage of tides and ...

Overhyped, Overpriced

My partner and I took a Viking Rhine River cruise last September, the usual half-price but super expensive offer. Never again. (1) The service was great. (2) Food okay-good. (3) The included wines not good, so you're likely (encouraged?) to buy the pricier options. (4) The free tours are adequate-good but too early--"everybody, get ready to board bus at 8:00"--so you're likely (encouraged?) to ...
