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 clean every day, dining was delightful with many delicious choices as well as meeting friendly travelers, entertainment was fun and engaging, and our ship director Terry was over the top ...

We signed up for this cruise because it coincided with peak tulip time in the Netherlands. Despite the crowds Viking was able to provide access to sites that generally avoided the crowds and gave us a good insight into the people and culture of Holland. Although a bit nippy at times the weather was excellent. The tours were generally extremely well done - although in Amsterdam museums ...

brochures and promo not accurate. We knew low bridges would restrict us from using the sun deck at time. But not for days on end. We knew at some ports of call we would be double and triple banked. It happened too many times to be comfortable. So don’t get a Balcony. All this information should be spelt out and told how many times it would happen. in the promo. Cologne was the only port we had ...

We wanted to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with a trip that was big and exotic! We travelled to Hawaii for our 35th anniversary and needed something bigger and better. We had been to Europe previously twice before but not since 1980 and then 1989. We loved Europe!! Then we saw an advertisement on our local TV station. GRAND EUROPEAN CRUSIE ON VIKING! We contacted the travel agent ...

On our first Viking Cruise we had Viking make all our flight arrangements and this worked with out flaw, perfect, easy, zero problems. Yes I did check to see if I could get better connections, and cheaper fares on my own, I could not. Using Viking Air is the way to go. As a yacht captain, I can see well past any ship board facade, and it is clear to me Viking is the clear stand out in European ...

My wife and I saved and planned for a couple of years to take a 14 day romantic river cruise through Europe, our dream vacation. It turned out to be the worst trip we have ever taken. To summarize; 36.45 hours on a bus, 14.25 hours of free time to explore the towns visited, 10 hours of daylight cruise, includes 3 hours of Rhine valley cruise during 2 hr lunch on lower level of rented tourist ...

The cruise was very enjoyable - staff of the ship was top notch. State rooms were clean, well designed with great attention to detail. Service was excellent. Food was good. We really enjoyed our wait staff. They were friendly, helpful and all-around wonderful. Shore excursions were well organized and the local guides were, for the most part, interesting and well informed. We felt rushed at ...

The trip was called Tulips and Windmills and included much more. My wife was more interested in the tulips and I was more interested in the windmills and technology. However the historical sights we visited were of great interest to both of us. It was a good mix of tours and times to rest and relax. There was some WWII history and some medieval history in the mix. The tour guides were ...

Picked this particular cruise because Viking was well rated, the cruise visited several countries and I thought traveling the rivers/canals would be more interesting than touring by bus. Our flight was cancelled, but Viking was great at getting someone to meet us the nest day and take us to the ship. Ship was beautiful with a peaceful vibe. The cabin was easy to live in and housekeeping was ...

The river cruise allows one to see Europe, both the small villages and large cities without having to spend every night in a different hotel and hours on a bus without anything to do other than sit. River cruising is intimate and relaxing. I would have liked the top deck to be open more but with the locks and bridges that was not possible. The on ship entertainment was nice, the food and service ...
