We had sailed with Viking on the Danube and were pleased with our experience so we picked them again for a Rhine River cruise and we're glad we did. Our balcony cabin was small, as are most river cruise cabins, but there was ample storage. The service was outstanding; we would like Marlon, our waiter, to come and live with us. He knew all of our drink preferences after the first day and, when one of our party became ill, he never failed to ask about his progress. We were very lucky: the water level and the weather were close to perfect. We spent most of the afternoon of the Middle Rhine sailing on the top deck and Viking showed great attention to details: we had maps that showed all of the 31 castles we sailed by, the program director did a commentary, we were given ice water, shade umbrellas, and ice cream (the sun was very strong that day - we all had red skin on areas where we failed to use sunblock). Most of the excursions were very good; the one exception being the Black Forest where it takes much too long on the bus to spend an hour at a very touristy visitors center (let's not talk about the rush hour traffic we hit on the way back). We would love to travel with Viking again. Read Less

I've travelled a lot but this was absolutely the most wonderful travel experience that I have ever had. My husband and I went with friends and we all loved it! We can't wait to take another cruise next summer and plan to do it at least annually. It was relaxing while cruising the river whether inside watching out the expansive windows, or on top outside (with drink in hand)... The food, what can I say about the fabulous food??? (It may be the last time I ever get on a scale). It was really interesting that just the views from the ship were exciting to watch, even if we didn't stop at every point. Having usually travelled very independently, I initially thought that the tours may be confining, but it was the exact opposite. It was so easy, and we also ventured out doing lots of things on our own as well. I found going through the locks fascinating. The ship was great, the crew was engaging, the service could not have been better, and we really did not want to come home! Frankly I wish I was boarding right now... Read Less

We went on this cruise on a recommendation from our daughter and son-in-law, plus the Viking reputation. We went on this cruise with our daughter and son-in-law law, and his father and girlfriend. The cruise was perfect. We went on daily shore excursions which were very good. They made each day something to look forward to as we got a good taste of Germany in different locations. Each day, before dinner, around 530-600, the tour director went over the next days tour plans. A shout out to the tour director, who did a great job. The casual atmosphere from start to finish kept everything comfortable. Food: excellent. Ship: excellent. Service: could not have been better. Embarking and disembarking: excellent from the airport to the boat. Expanding on the service: I must give my highest compliments and thanx to a few individuals: Jerome and Julia. Both were more then excellent. We saw them numerous times daily. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and often in the early evening in the lounge. It seemed as though Julie & Jerome’s only goal was to make our cruise perfect and one to remember. They accomplished this fabulously, from the minute we met them, until the cruise was over. I cannot say enough about their service and about them personally as individuals. They weren’t just servers, they made us feel like we were all friends and welcoming us into their home. Also, in the lounge, 2 more folks need to be pointed out for excellent service as well: Dmitri and the bartender (forgive me, I forgot his name.) these two gentlemen also made us all feel welcome no matter the time. The silver spirits package is the way to go! These four helped turned an excellent cruise into one that was “over the top”. The entire cruise experience was the best vacation my wife and I ever had, and do plan on another one in the future. Everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you all for a fabulous experience.

I chose this cruise so my wife and I could spend some time with our daughter and her family after the cruise in Basel. All-in-all we were very happy with this cruise and how Viking took care of us. We spent a day in Amsterdam prior to departure to get over the jet lag flying overnight from Chicago. The ship and facilities were in very good condition. We are mostly experienced in ocean cruising with about a dozen overall cruises, but this was only our second river cruise, both with Viking. Viking did an excellent job navigating the Rhine as it was at a historically low water level, given the drought in Europe last summer. At one point, Viking thought we were going to have to be off-boarded and transported to another ship to get past the most critically low-level areas. However, they got through with apparently only a few inches of clearance and it was really cause for celebration to avoid that possible obstacle and delay! The stops and excursions were all excellent. Typically, we are willing on cruises to pay extra for excursions, but on this trip, what was included in the base price were excellent, and we didn't upgrade a single excursion! Very unusual for us, yet we felt we saw everything we wanted to. The areas for improvement for us are in evening entertainment and the ability to have room service for your meals. The previous river cruise with Viking had significant evening entertainment which we didn't feel this cruise offered. Also, the balconies are very nice on the ship and we love to have our meals brought in to be consumed while we sail and we often do on our ocean cruises...unfortunately, Viking doesn't offer that on their river cruises, that I am aware of. A third complaint is that this river ship did not offer a small gym or workout room. Other than those complaints, we were very happy with the ship, the staff, the service, and the entire experience with Viking. Read Less

See Don465's review...my sentiments exactly! When making plans to go on a cruise, my only goal was that it be a river cruise. Not being on the ocean with thousands of other people was what initially drew me to a river cruise. What an excellent decision that turned out to be! Everything from start to finish was wonderful! I can't say enough about the staff! If there is a school on how to make passengers feel comfortable, and well taken care of, the Lofn staff were all star students! Matter of fact, every Viking employee, no matter what their job was, was superb...from the staff that met us at the airport, to the employees who took care of our cabin, to the chef and his staff, to the tour guides on the excursions, to the Viking woman that helped us during our stay in Basel, to every person with a Viking name tag! Our trip was truly one I will never forget! Read Less

Have previously heard raving reviews from previous Viking River Cruise passengers. Now that we have been on the cruise itself, we want to truly share your experience with others. We love the daily included tours and we especially love the services provided by the Viking Cruise staff members. This range from the Captain, all the down to the tour bus drivers. The staff on board the cruise ship all went above and beyond . The food was excellent and the drinks bountiful. We really had a good time and met some wonderful people too. The event coordinator was superb. Very knowledgeable and make special effort to include all those , like my husband who had limited mobility on the tours. Room service was excellent and the entertainment provided every evening were excellent. This is our first River Cruise and we enjoyed it more than other Ocean Cruises we had been. We will definitely take on another River Cruise with Viking. Love that the package included airfare and ground transportation. Read Less

Always wanted to go on a river boat cruise. We took this cruise to celebrate my 50th birthday but also in memory of my mother in law who always wanted to go on a riverboat cruise! I love the intimacy, the small crew and limited amount of people. The included excursions were amazing and the excursion we chose was fantasic. The time on the ship especially on the sun deck in the evening was breathtaking. Absolutely loved the food! It was a real cultural experience. The fact that it was all inclusive really made us happy! The crew was amazing. Ivan was our favorite. He made us feel special and had a great personalitity. Definitely a great balance between friendliness and professionalism!!! We definitely will go on Viking from now on! Thinking about an ocean cruise next. Everything was top of the line and a great value. Highly recommend! Love Viking. Read Less

We had tried a river cruise with another carrier and were very much disappointed. Subsequently we were very impressed with a ocean cruise aboard Viking Sky and decided to determine whether a Viking river cruise measured up to the ocean experience. It did from an excellent crew to a great cabin complete with a sitting balcony from which we thoroughly enjoyed the passingscene. All of the shore adventures were sheparded by delightful guides that made visits to local restaurants and shops memorable and full of fun. The food aboard ship was tasty and attractively served by a staff that were clearly attuned to making each meal special. We especially enjoyed the option of formal or informal dining. The entertainment was delightful and well attuned to each point along our journey. Each day was very special because of the care and planning that was evident throughout every aspect of our river cruise. Best of all was our extended tour through Switzerland. Our guide anticipated our every need and some we didn't know we had. She was articulate and added much to each of our adventures. We didn't even have to think of handling our luggage for the entirety of our extended tour. We were particularily impressed by the thoughtfulness of Viking in handling our miss of the ship at the outset because of a 7 hour delay in our arrival due to our air carrier's equipment problems . We were suprised when met at Amsterdam very late in the evening by a Viking rep who saw us to a convenient hotel and arranged to have us motored to catch the ship the next morning. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived at the ship's first stop with the result that the trials of the previous day were quicky forgotten. We have already committed to a future Viking ocean cruise aboard Orion commencing in Japan with a shore extension under Viking's direction and we are considering another river cruise in Russia. That says it all. We are very pleased with what we have found in Viking care and service Read Less

This cruise was something I have wanted to do for many years and had made plans to travel from Avignon to Lyon a couple of years ago. Although that trip did not work out I was able to make plans to take the Rhine River trip from Amsterdam to Basel this year and was so wonderfully surprised by the perfect nature of this trip. The ship was nicely appointed, clean, new and well handled. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the entertainment just enough. You could have anything you wanted...quiet and peaceful or fun filled new friendships. The staff was happy and accommodating. The food was excellent and well presented. The excursions were very well thought out and the optional excursions provided additional entertainment when desired. Everything related to the ship was excellent. The only problems occurred on the last day when there were airline cancellations and when the boat could not dock where it was supposed to. Actually that happened when we left Amsterdam to but wasn't that much of a problem. I'll definitely travel with Viking again. My only wish is that they had some sort of accommodation for single travelers. Read Less

First time on Viking. My daughter and I enjoyed every port. We took advantage of all the included experiences and added on several additional outings. The staff was amazing and the food and entertainment was wonderful. I look forward to checking out another Viking river cruise soon. This cruise was a present for my daughters college graduation. She would have enjoyed more passengers in her age range. Of course we would have enjoyed more free time in each port. We certainly spent every moment possible exploring. Really liked the daily newspaper and map of interesting sights for each port. Also really enjoyed the discussion during happy hour of where we were headed next and what to expect. The headphone system was great. It made it very easy to hear the tour directors. The scenic cruises during the daytime hours was fantastic. So many wonderful things to see.

Our trip exceeded our expectations. We had heard positive things from different people prior to traveling, but it was even better that they had shared. Everything was wonderful. From the time you arrived, you had the opportunity to visit Amsterdam with a guide. Everyday the daily trips and additional ones were well organized and fun. There was inclusivity for all to be able to access the daily tours. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and fun to have share their city/country with us. The ship was beautiful and well taken care of. Our cabin fit our needs and had great cleaning and evening turndown service. The meals represented the area we were visiting and were delicious and the staff fun to have around. There were also on boat activities and again, you could participate if you wanted. We really enjoyed being able to attend the dinners in town, too. And not being assigned to a table allowed us to meet more guests, which was really fun. It was so nice to have under 200 people travel with us. We would not hesitate to do another Viking Trip in the future. Read Less

This cruise went to places we wanted to see and experience. Everything went smoothly, from picking us up at the arrival airport to every shore excursion and to our (regretful) departure. Our verandah stateroom was plenty roomy for my husband and I. Nikki, our cabin steward was efficient and glad to help in any way, to make us comfortable and to enjoy our room. Ship's crew were all cheerful and seemed to focus on making our cruise exactly what we hoped for. Our Captain always greeted us as we returned from shore excursions and answered our every question, probably even though it was the thousandth-time he'd done so. Every member of the crew took a moment to be sure the ship was as pristine as possible every moment of the day, no matter who they were. Dining was always excellent and our wait-staff were a great team. Viking could not ask for better staff than we had. Tour guides for the shore excursions were incredibly knowledgeable. It was the first time we have traveled on Viking, and we are looking forward to see experiencing China with Vikings! Read Less

The staff were wonderful, and the the cocktail staff made me feel like I was in my nieghborhood watering hole. The meals were beyond my expectations and the service was fantastic.

The excursion were educational and enjoyable. The transportation to the excusions were expectional and the the guides were very freindly and informed. The point of insrest on the tours were the right on point. The cabin staff did a wonderful job, the room and bathroom were always kept to the highest standards.

Time of year. We're gardening people and wanted to visit the areas to see spring coming to life. It was spectacular as we're all of the other sights. Guides were great. Interesting, knowledgeable and fun. Boat crew very professional and pleasant. We were treated royally. We liked it so much that we are going on a Viking ocean cruise in 3 weeks. The cabins were great although we didn't spend much time in them because we busy with tours and activities. Food was superb served by attentive and polite wait staff. They go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy at all meals. Tours/excursions were very interesting and informative. Ground transportation was very comfortable and efficient. We felt comfortable and secure everywhere we went thanks to thorough communication by the boats personnel. I highly recommend Viking River Cruises. We will most likely take more. The Rhine Cruise in spring is beautiful. We're anxiously awaiting our Viking Ocan Cruise in 3 weeks. I'm sure it will be great just based on how much we liked the river cruise! Read Less

What a wonderful experience we had with Viking River Cruises aboard the Viking Lofn. It's staff was helpful, friendly, efficient, and alert to our needs/wants while on board and ashore. The food was excellent and served by professional and friendly staff. Our cabin (we chose a lower level room) was comfortable, well appointed, and very very clean. We chose a lower level because we did not plan to spend much time in our cabin, and we did not. The ship has so much to offer (lounges, decks inside and out, etc.) that we prefer to spend our awake time enjoying our surroundings. And meeting new friends. With only 170 or so guests aboard, it did not feel crowded, even at dinner with almost everyone in the same elegant dining room, The views from all sides of the dining room and lounge area were extraordinary. It was delightful being up top on deck while cruising down the Rhein. And for fun, take a visit to the wheelhouse. What a learning experience. The planned excursions were informative, very well organized, timely, comfortable, and so much more. The only "problem" with the entire cruise was that at the end...we had to start thinking for ourselves again. (That's a joke, well intended, to show how relaxed and how pampered we felt.) We can hardly wait to do it again! Relaxed and pampered! Who can ask for a better vacation! Thank you Viking River Cruises! Read Less

This was our 1st Viking River Cruise. The entire experience from beginning to end was great. Embarkation was seamless. Viking meets you at the airport and takes you to your ship. We loved the atmosphere of the smaller group of people. The price you pay includes a complementary excursion at each port. All of these excursions on The Rhine were great. The staff was always very friendly, helpful and willing to answer any questions if necessary. Best food we have ever had on a cruise. Again all meals are included in the price you pay. They also treat you with food specialties of every region you visit. All drinks are also included with your meals. At the end of the cruise they transport you to the airport and have a staff member inside the airport to help with your luggage and make sure you get checked in at the correct gate. Can’t wait until our next Viking Cruise. Read Less

Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with our first trip to Europe and first ever river cruise! We were not disappointed with Viking Lofn! We were impressed with the genuine attention to the passengers throughout the trip! Comfortable, clean boat, nicely appointed without overblown décor. Food service was right on point and again not overly extravagant! Every meal was tasteful and pleasantly served! We enjoyed the variety of passengers we met by our various dinner table seating selections. The daily regional tours were outstanding on all counts from transportation, regional tour guides, featured activities and time allotment for exploring on own. We especially enjoyed the daytime cruise featuring spectacular views along the Rhine! Disembarkment and transportation to our next train was seamless! We appreciated the inclusive air transportation and Viking travel assistance as we prepared for our first European adventure!

The cruise director (Gavin - I believe was his name) was a pure delight!! The cabins and the bathrooms were a wonderful size. Really appreciated the glass shower stall.

We had a non-stop flight from Portland, Oregon.Viking met us at the airport in Amsterdam and took us by coach to the Lofn. At the end of the cruise In Basel Viking took us by coach to the airport and walked us to where we check in for departure. They were there throughout the journey. This is a lot smaller ship than the big sea ships so more contact with the crew. The crew was great from the Captain on down. The cabin was roomy enough with the 2 beds. No balcony which was fine, the window was at water level. Just right to view the swans. There was always a choice at dinner time between local food or American. It was fun to try something different. The tours were set up with local people that knew their area well. It was wonderful to have a shore excursion included in every stop at no extra charge. They also had different excursions you could pay to join. The "Leisure Group" was great for people with walking challenges. We avoided stairs and walked slower, but still saw all the sites. I am 67yrs and my husband is 71 yrs. He has two new hips and he was able to enjoy all the excursions we went on. If the walking is not smooth, they let us know in advance so we could decide to try or not. The ship looked bran new. It was in excellent condition. Always very clean and comfortable. Everything about the trip was beyond our expectations. We will definitely travel with them again. Read Less

Did the Rhine River over Thanksgiving. Loved the longer itinerary allowing for extra days in arrival and departure ports. Crew/ship were great- clean - helpful-- friendly. Enjoyed the extra cost excursion to Grindewald and Klein Schdig? The Swiss Alps are spectacular! Some of the ports had their Christmas Markets already up and running - we caught on late to enjoy a mug of Gluwine at each market and save the fun mugs.... next time we will plan better! Excursions were great in every port. We piad extra for the Swiss Alpine tour - worth every penny! The Colmar WWII tour was also a favorite - interesting and lots of France countryside to see. Room was fine - has everything you need. Beds comfy. Crew was excellent. Food was good - varied - loved the German Food night. Captain did a talk and questions/answers- seemed very approachable. Weather could be damp - always umbrellas available. It was nice to come back to the ship and be greeted with a warm towel, warm drink, or cookie. Bus drivers were nice, and the tour guides had great senses of humor. Made for great tours. Will be back! Read Less

I had always wanted to take a Viking cruise for my 60th birthday. It not only met, but exceeded my expectations. The cabin was comfortable and our cabin steward was amazing. Each day with the excursions our cruise director, Dominique would remind us to bring our voice boxes and the crew handed out bottled water. Each included excursion was interesting and showed us whatever port we were in. Paid for 2 extra excursions; a dinner out and Colmar, France. Well worth it. The bartenders were very attentive and remembered that I like champagne. When I would,walk into the bar, he would poor me a glass. Nice touch. The food was delicious.

Very comfortable ship, great shore excursions, excellent staff and wonderful food. Viking is simply outstanding! This was our first river cruise and we chose Viking because of its reputation. We were not disappointed. Having only about 185 passengers on board made getting acquainted easy. Unlike our ocean cruises, it was not "eat all day long". Instead the three meals served were wholesome, tasty, and served in proportions that were just right. The dining options were plentiful, There was a shore excursion at each port included in the cruise price and they were, with only one exception, very interesting and well managed. Having Viking arrange our flights made getting to and from the ship to the airport a breeze. Every evening there was a program describing in detail what the next day was to bring which made planning and decisions very easy. The crew was remarkable both for their knowledge and kindness. We would recommend Viking without hesitation. Read Less

This was for my honeymoon, and was my first cruise, so I didn't know what to expect. Here's what I got: The ship was absolutely gorgeous! Well-appointed, always spotlessly clean, and nicer than a lot of land-based hotels I've stayed in. Our cabin was super-comfy and quiet for when we wanted time to ourselves. The food was surprisingly great, both in the restaurant and on the Aquavit Terrace, and the service in both was top-notch! Activities on board and shore excursions were super fun! I still remember the name of my trivia team from one of the activities. Daniela was a masterful Activities Director, always entertaining and personable, and ready to answer any questions that anybody had. The service was amazing. From the housekeeping staff to the bartenders and the waiters, it really felt like I'd known these people my whole life, and I wish I could have taken them home with me. If you ever get Dalibor as a bartender on your cruise, you won't be disappointed! We will definitely be going on another Viking cruise after we decide where to go! Read Less

This was my first time visiting Europe, we went on a girls trip with my sister, aunt, and mom and really enjoyed our time! The crew and employee's ran our trip and excursion like a well well oiled machine. Everything was extremely organized and very well done from pickup at the airport to arrival at each destination everything was on time and quite quick. Friendly tour guides at each stop who were very knowledgeable about the area. We really enjoyed being able to enjoy the countryside onboard the ship and not have to find accommodations along the way. Food was excellent, wait staff was incredible. Any requests made were met with above average execution. My sister and I were by far the youngest guests on the cruise but we had a great time with the staff members but that was defiantly a unique experience. These trips may not be for the most adventurous of travelers or those with children but was a relaxing way to see a lot in a relatively small amount of time. Read Less
