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

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

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

The top of my bucket list included Austria, and we had heard that river cruising was the way to go. We were not disappointed. From the moment we were met at the airport to the time we were picked up to leave for home, we were the most ... Read more

This cruise was recommended by family who had traveled Viking before. My brother and his wife, my sister and her husband, and just me decided to take this particular adventure. It was a most superb experience. The boat was beautiful and ... Read more

As beginners with Viking River cruises, we thought the Danube experience would give us the opportunity to see several European countries and cities, especially Vienna and Budapest in a safe and convenient way. We thought that in our ... Read more

We did the 7 day river cruise with 2 days on the Front end in Paris then Trier to Nuremberg and 4 days on the back end in Prague. Viking was outstanding and had staff in place to support us from our arrival at the airport in Paris until ... Read more

We chose `Poland, Prague and the Elegant Elbe`because it enabled us to visit Berlin, Prague, Auschwitz and Krakow with a river cruise included. River cruising is our favourite way to travel but until this new trip was announced we had ... Read more

Had never been to Europe, so it was on my bucket list. Flight and Embarkation was smooth with no problems with lost luggage or transportation from the airport. The ship was very clean and the cabin was comfortable. Room service ... Read more

Viking has a wonderful Myanmar cruise/tour itinerary. You get a chance to see some of the major tourist sites but also visit small villages. Many people loved the villages most of all. The trip starts in Bangkok at the beautiful ... Read more

We traveled on the final cruise of the year, we spent Christmas in Rouen as the Normandy Beaches excursion would have fallen on a Holiday. This is a very pleasant easy trip. Viking was on the ball, they rearranged the itinerary so that ... Read more

It sounded very relaxing and it was a chance to see part of Europe I'd not seen. Our very attentive crew took care of all details. Superb meals. Reasonable cost. The shore excursions were well planned and I appreciated that the costs were ... Read more

My father was originally from Hungary and I wanted to see the country he came from. We have done the Rhine in both directions, so we thought Budapest to Nuremberg would be a great way to see a bit of Hungary and the the Danube. The ... Read more

My wife's big dream was to visit The Christmas Markets in Europe and we were not disappointed. We took the Christmas Market Cruise on the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest, and while the weather was cold and rainy, that did not dampen our ... Read more

My husband, myself and another couple went on the Idi through Germany and Holland and remained in Amsterdam after the cruise (the add-on package.) The hotel in Amsterdam and travel arrangements were terrific. Accommodations and service ... Read more

As usual with Viking, we were met at the airport and had no worries about logistics from that point onward. The trip was very interesting and educational. We also took both the pre and post cruise extensions. These were also extremely well ... Read more

Viking cannot change the weather or the rain. Like many cruisers before us we got the note, just a couple of days before (shame on you, Viking--you have known that for a long time), that the cruise might involve bus rides because of low ... Read more

After a three-flight trip and navigating the "maze" (otherwise known as Frankfurt Airport), it was comforting to be met at Lisbon by a Viking representative, who took us to Lisbon's Hotel Tivoli. This hotel is fine and well ... Read more

Everything on the cruise was higher than what was expected. All the wines served were well above average. The only negative comment I have to say is I tried to contact Viking to find out if they could help me acquire some of the wines in ... Read more

Although our river cruise did not start off on a positive note because of low water levels and we had to change boats twice, I found Viking to be very efficient in ensuring that everything went smoothly. Stay on both Viking boats ... Read more

Traveled from Basil to Amsterdam, via Rhine. Unfortunately, the river was to shallow to pass and we were moved to another Viking ship on the other side of low section. The transfer was done very efficiently however it did interrupt some of ... Read more

If you would like a poor river, bus and walking tour, book with Viking Cruise Line, I think. You will also get poor attitude and food at times. We were on 4 different ships which meant packing and unpacking every time with bus rides ... Read more
