I have just read the review by Tvrajan and couldn't agree more. We were on the same ill-fated cruise. I will not rehash the details of his well written review but will add that as a health professional I was stunned by the lack of ... Read more

My wife and I have never been on a river cruise before, even though we have taken a number of ocean cruises. Going to Giverny and seeing Monet’s garden has always been on my wife's bucket list, and after much discussion, we booked ... Read more

We were so excited to sail on this river cruise line, as we had heard so much about it. Unfortunately we and others on the ship soon became ill. Our embarking time was delayed on the first day so they could clean the ship, as so many on ... Read more

This was our second river cruise, having used Uniworld previously. We wanted to try Viking to see how they compare, other than knowing that they are slightly less expensive than Uniworld. Initial impression of the ship was that it was ... Read more

Leisurely cruise down the Seine. Our program director was amazing. She arranged to have us switch from British to American tour of D-Day beaches in the middle so we could view the Bayeux tapestry and the American Cemetery, and arranged ... Read more

This is my second cruise with Viking because I was so pleased with my first experience. My sister and her husband joined us when I talked about our first experience. The entire staff did everything to make our cruise the best experience ... Read more

This is the best way to travel, bar none! It has all the advantage of an ocean cruise without the crowds of people, taking buses to points of interest and waits to get off and on the shop. Great food and ease in getting around the ship. ... Read more

My husband and I and two of our close friends cruised for the second time on the Pride. Our first cruise was in 2010 and we were pleased to see that the ship was still in good shape. This time we cruised from Paris to Rouen and back. ... Read more

When we arrived at the ship, you could not miss the large dent in the starboard bow of the boat. We were given multiple variations of what went wrong and was assured by Viking that the ship was safe and that we would sail a promised. ... Read more

My husband and I LOVED this Viking Paris/Normandy river cruise. It was our first river cruise but certainly won't be our last. We had a wonderful experience with Viking. We loved that there were only 140 passengers and 40 crew, a much ... Read more

My father had just passed away two weeks before our sail date. We had purchased trip insurance, and we did consider postponing our trip. Our friends and relatives persuaded us to go on the trip as planned. I am so glad we did. We had such ... Read more

I have to say, this trip was special. When we arrived in Paris, Delta had lost our luggage. Viking had someone stay at the airport near us while we did a claim. When we were done, they were ready to take us to the ship. We got to ride ... Read more

We couldn't have asked for more. We'd never been on a cruise before and were a bit apprehensive about just about everything: travel to Europe, size of cabin and amenities, food (my husband is picky), excursions (would there be too much ... Read more

To me, part of the experience is meeting other people on the tour. What made this experience so special was getting to know the crew in a way that was comfortable and fun. It certainly made a difference with our cruise. We were delighting ... Read more

This was our second Viking River Cruise and it was wonderful. We could not have been happier with the food (every meal surpassed the previous meal!) , the accomodations, the daily adventures, and free time. With only about 150 passengers, ... Read more

Where do I begin?...Well to begin with, Viking River Cruises claims to be the "World's Leading Cruise Line...By Far." However, after my trip aboard the Viking Pride during "Paris and the Heart of Normandy," I have since learned otherwise. ... Read more
