I heard good things about it. I know that the Rheine River has many natural beauties, castles, little villages, vinehards, etc. It is pictures perfect. I also knew that Viking does everything right. They are thoughtful and very ... Read more

Viking represents that you have free time in ports after the complimentary morning tour. Not so much. In 23 days of cruising we were tied up within walking distance of the sites for only two stops! All other stops we would have had to ... Read more

This was a very good experience for our first river cruise. I like Viking's business model where you pay up front and don't have to worry about paying for tours, lunch and dinner beverages, and much of the tipping. The crew was pleasant ... Read more

Our 15 day Viking River Cruise was both a joy and a heartbreak. The trip was unfortunately hit by the failure of one of the main engines. We were told about this breakdown the first day. We were kept appraised of the problem and the ... Read more
