Last year we took a 15 day river cruise starting in Amsterdam and ending in Budapest. Due to acts of God (low water levels) we had to change our ship 3 times during the 15 day vacation. The crew and the Viking Company did all they could to ... Read more

Our previous experiences with Viking River Cruises had been so positive, that we sought to see yet another River, more cities, and learn more. We traveled on the ship Odin from Prague (Bamberg) to Paris (Trier) over 12 days. We explored ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, but because of the experience we had, it will not be our last. From the time that we got on the ship, it was obvious that the crew was well trained in customer service and they went out of their way to ... Read more

We arrived two days early for the cruise which allowed us to explore on our own and get there on time! We always arrive a minimum of a day early. Prague is a beautiful city to roam and very comfortable. We were lucky since the Elbe can be ... Read more

From pick up at the airport in Prague until drop-off at the airport in Paris, we were treated like royalty. The crew is excellent, from room stewards to captain. I was worried there would be too much down time while on the boat. Just the ... Read more

We had been wanting to go to Prague and Berlin, as well as do a river cruise, so this was a perfect match! Several couples on the boat were repeat Viking passengers. Those who had done river cruises with other lines said that Viking is the ... Read more

After avoiding Viking for several years because we could not stand their TV adverts, our minds were changed by the very positive recommendations of several friends. We were not disappointed. The only reason we did not award five stars was ... Read more

We went with two other couples. One couple has been on many Viking cruises and have not been on the Beyla before. So we chose this ship. Our experience was wonderful from start to finish. Our airport transfers were included and worth it! ... Read more

We wanted to go somewhere we had not been before so we chose the Elbe River. It was a wonderful cruise, I can't give it enough cudos. The crew were super and the Captain was the best. The Captsin was around all the time when we got off ... Read more

The ship was very comfortable but the staff were amazing. They were fantastic. Our cabin was much larger than expected and was well furnished. The balcony was a joy and had two chairs we used often. The public areas of the ship were ... Read more

We chose this itinerary because I was interested in the recent history of the area covered by the cruise---World War II, the Iron Curtain, Glasnost. I was reminded of the profound effect that the Soviet occupation had. Along the way the ... Read more

We have been pleased with the personal and efficiency of Viking cruises in the past and this was no exception. The Elbe is a shallow and narrow river so our cruise ship was smaller and more intimate. I think the crew worked even harder ... Read more
