My husband and I were looking for a ship with smaller passenger size and a great reputation. Viking provided us both. We were greeted when we arrived and immediately taken to our room. Our Program Director, Oliver, kept us fully ... Read more

This was my first river cruise and it was perfect. We were greeted when we arrived at the airport by our Viking Program Director. There was an enjoyable and brief ride to the ship. Upon arriving, we were warmly greeted and immediately ... Read more

So much for 'Experience the world in comfort, fabulous food, fabulous hotel stay and a journey that is simply incredible.' A very disappointing and poor value trip as the river was closed. Staff did not inform us we would not be able ... Read more

We sailed on the Njord this year--Romantic Danube. Our first Viking cruise was on Alsvin in 2015, the Tulips/Windmill cruise. We loved it so much that we returned this year with another couple. We'd like to make this an annual trip. ... Read more

This was my first and most likely only cruise and I was surprised at how great the experience was especially as I am more of a spur of the moment person. My wife and I never were able to take a real honeymoon and this was our first real ... Read more

Went on the new Viking Gefjon on the Danube Waltz. Loved the locations where we stopped, loved the bus tours around the cities, loved just sitting on the deck when the younger travelers went on other explorations, food was excellent, love ... Read more

This was our first European cruise, first river cruise, and first Viking cruise. My spouse and I traveled with another couple (all in our late 50s). Generally we were impressed with Viking’s attention to detail and the ship’s ... Read more

This is our 4th Viking River Cruise and was just what we wanted. It was very laid back and relaxing. Bordeaux is a beautiful city and the cruise gave us just enough interest to want to go back to the city for a longer visit. Viking has ... Read more

The Cabin A was smaller than other Cabins I have had on previous river cruises. The service was great and the cabin was very well taken care of and in addition our cabin person made towel animals for us every day. The ports and shore ... Read more

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

This was our third Viking River Cruise. We went on this cruise as we wished to visit Paris and the Normandy Beaches. When we booked this cruise over a year before we sailed we believed the ship would be moored close to the centre of ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose to take a Viking River Cruise down the Rhine River. We chose a pre-cruise extension and made all of the arrangements on our own, spending two nights in Amsterdam before boarding the Viking ship Hlin. ... 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

Sailed from Budapest to Passau, then continued with Viking's four-day trip extension to Prague. We chose this route because it was requested by friends who accompanied us; my wife and I had actually sailed the Budapest-to-Nuremburg ... Read more

I have been on two river cruises in Europe with two different companies and can't help but compare. While we enjoyed our cruise with Viking, I felt Uniworld was a better experience. First, as others have noted, docking in Le Pecq ... Read more

We greatly enjoyed the Rhine River cruise we took in 2015. Everything was planned thoroughly and went smoothly from the time we were picked up at the Basil airport to when we were taken to the Amsterdam airport. This cruise along the ... Read more

We chose the Tulips and Windmills cruise because, um, we wanted to see tulips and windmills. That, and we wanted to go on a river cruise, and Viking looked like the best choice ... and it was! The ship and crew were remarkable. ... Read more

Having seen the cruises advertised on TV I rang for a brochure. When it arrived a thought the cruise too expensive for the number of days. I later received a flyer offering £1000 off per person and rang to book the cruise that ... Read more
