To be honest we couldn't pass up charge on air fare. But beside that we loved the entire trip. Everything went as planned and Viking crew could not have been more helpful, courteous, professional, caring and friendly from the time they met ... Read more

This trip was a gift to ourselves for our 50th wedding anniversary. It was well worth it. We decided on the Rhine River Cruise because it fit our interests and looked like an experience we would enjoy. We like history and the shore ... Read more

This was our third river cruise with Viking, and we have never been disappointed. We began with a two-day pre cruise stay in Amsterdam in a lovely, reasonable b&b (Clemens Hotel) near the Anne Frank House. The extra days allowed us ... Read more

We had never done a river cruise and the Rhine River sounded like a special type of trip. Until than we had always done ocean cruises. The experience was great. Compared to ocean cruises, this type of cruise is very laid back, yet full of ... Read more

This is the only way to travel. No changing of hotels and repacking regularly. Delicious food taken care of by a great kitchen staff 3 times a day. Breakfast and lunch could be fast buffet style or leisurely sit down. We were handed ... Read more

Viking picked us up at the airport and the personnel were very easy to find. Even though our flight arrived at 6:30AM, they took us straight to the boat and we were able to eat breakfast on the boat. Our room was ready for us by 9AM! We ... Read more

This is my 5th Viking river cruise. Tours in Amsterdam and Bruge were terrific with tours to smaller cities like Hoorn a real bonus. The highlight was the tour of the tulip garden show. The 1-year- old ship was very nice, with the ... Read more

I have avoided any form of a ship/boat cruise because I didn't want to be limited to the rules and regs and being confined to an endless sea. The idea of short cruises to ports of interest and still have my "stuff" in the same ... Read more

We had previously done the Romantic Danube and the Rhine separately, but my brother and wife wanted to do a cruise so we recommended this one. The part through southern Germany was new to us but we learned new things even on the other ... Read more

I wanted to try a river cruise for many years. We found a great first cruise with Viking (Lofn). It was so nice to have an intimate environment with less passengers than an ocean cruise. The ship was only three decks - a perfect size. The ... Read more
