This was our 7th Viking river cruise and we are planning more. We had taken the Grand European, which covered much of the same area down the Rhine with an extension on this cruise past Germany's Main river into Switzerland (we totally ... Read more

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

Viking was running a special price including air fare from Orlando. This was on our bucket list of things to do so the timing was right. It was our first river cruise and exceeded all of our expectations. Our program director Diana was ... 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

We took a transatlantic cruise over to Europe and enjoyed the ocean cruise very much with Royal Caribbean. We visited 6 countries on that cruise. We ended up in Copenhagen, Denmark and flew back to Amsterdam to board the Viking Ve Grand ... Read more

My husband chose the cruise. The ship was lovely and our room was very nice and well maintained. The Wi-Fi connection was very weak. The food was excellent. It was nice to have a choice of where to eat. We had dinners up on the atrium ... Read more

Advertisements of PBS peaked our interest in a river cruise on the Rhine, it seemed so beautiful. We often told our children that we would some day take a river cruise and for our 40 wedding anniversary the cruise was presented to us as ... Read more

I enjoy traveling to new places and accompanied a friend, who is a retired History teacher. The Lofn was my first experience on a Longship and quite different from cruising on big ocean liners, but very nice. The ports were wonderful. ... 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

We took the Grand European Tour and stayed in the Explorer Suite (a special occasion at great expense). This is a senior cruise, with the majority of guests over 65. Disabuse yourself of the idea that a river cruise is charming small ... Read more

Just finished the Grand European cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest on Bragi. For the price I expected much more. Staff is great, especially the cruise director, concierge, and other people you may deal with at the front desk. Cabin was ... Read more

Friends of ours had done a Viking Cruise in Paris 2 years ago and loved it, so we chose this one to do together. My husband and I arrived 3 days prior to disembarkation and had plenty of time to visit Amsterdam. Viking provided ... Read more

This was our first European river cruise and our first extended trip to Europe. The experience was everything, and more, that we'd been led to expect by the cruise line and by our friends who'd traveled this way before us. This particular ... Read more

I have taken many oceanic cruises, but this river cruise is quite different. There are many positives as well as negatives. On the positive side, there is no sea-sickness, no "at sea days", no need to dress up or make-up, ... Read more

This was the Tulips and Windmills Cruise, our second with Viking. Choose this cruise to see Tulips and sites in The Netherlands/Belgium. This is not a cruise with great views from ship. FYI our group of six was 55-65, the younger end of ... Read more

The schedule of cruises and the cost package were the main reasons we chose Viking. However, after the cruise, I can't imagine a better river cruise experience. From pick-up at the airport in Amsterdam to drop-off in Zurich, the crew was ... Read more
