Ship Facts: Viking Helvetia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Helvetia Deck Plans
Rhine River Cruise
Left St Pancras on Eurostar was surprised we were not booked with other Viking passengers as only 6 of us and had been given the impression we would be together not even in same carriage so didn't meet up until Paris.

Also were not always seated with our partners, when coming home there were lots of empty seats so the train staff offered to move us. Otherwise journey easy and pleasant

Cruise was great couldn't fault it

Organisation was carried out in a friendly and efficient manner the Programme Director had her finger on the button all the time

Rooms spotless and kept well throughout in an unobtrusive way

Food excellent at all times and waiters polite and helpful in friendly way

Relaxed dining worked well and enabled you to sit and get to know lots of different people who were all very friendly. We were surprised there were so many Americans

Excursions well organised as well as time to look around on your own

Leaving the ship at end of cruise was carried out like a military operation and no hitches

Met some nice people and my husband enjoyed the whole experience and he's not one for holidays but he can be critical. It was a special for him as he is 80 next month

Would love to do another trip but I'll have to use my powers of persuasion.

Would recommend Viking to anyone
