We picked this cruise because it included a large cross section of European countries and we wanted to see as much of Europe as possible on one trip in case we didn't return. Everything about the cruise was excellent including our ... Read more

My husband and I had never, ever been on a cruise before. We wanted a river cruise which would offer the two of us a leisurely, romantic and "educational" experience. We chose a Viking Rhine Getaway river cruise. I have to say, ... Read more

Heard good things about Viking and they were all true. We loved the overall experience - everything from just watching the world go by on our balcony to the guided tours were great. We also enjoyed the casual atmosphere on the ship along ... Read more

It was to have been a gift for a key company manager and husband to go with my wife and I. Her mother died days before the Cruise, and they had to go home for the final couple days followed by the funeral. We did not take insurance. The ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of seeing all of the wonderful cities along these rivers. I can only rank it a 1 due to many reasons. #1. You have only an hour or 2 of free time in most of the locations. #2. There is WAY TOO MUCH down ... Read more
