Mixed views and unlikely to use Viking again

Myself and friend booked this holiday over a year in advance and was looking forward to this for a long time so I can't help feeling then that the holiday itself was very anti-climactic. We opted for getting the ...

Grand European Cruise exceeded our expectations!

We chose this tour because we could travel through Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Czech Republic. Viking Gefjon is a beautiful ship with an outstanding, attentive crew. Our cabin was always fresh and ...

The perfect adventure made elegant and easy.

A friend and I decided to cruise on Viking on a spontaneous whim and I’m so glad we did. We enjoyed each stop on our journey and found a perfect blend of the guided tours and exploring on our own. Each day we did ...

The attention to detail was amazing and the staff and crew wonderfully helpful.

We've never wanted to do an ocean cruise but were intrigued by river cruises. We chose Amsterdam to Basel because we have family in Basel and wanted to visit at the end. The ship itself was clean and easy to ...

Not Really a Christmas Market Cruise, despite how it is sold.

For the most part, I have good words and praise for the actual cruise ship staff. They could not fix or be held accountable for things beyond their control, chiefly the marketing of what this cruise was supposed to ...

This was our first river cruise, although we had been on a number of ocean cruises. We chose Gate1 because of the value and great reviews for their land tours, but there was little or nothing to be found about their ...

Expensive but food lacking

We had never been on a river cruise and wanted to do a Rhine cruise. After a dozen + ocean cruises we did not know what to expect. The ship was beautiful and the crew were great. We had a panorama balcony cabin on ...

Out of soup?

We had a day in Heidelberg that we were out from 10:00 to 3:30. We came in from the very cold day to a lunch of hot soup and finger sandwiches. I arrived about 3:35 and there were many still behind me. They were ...
