Our Viking cruise review

Thank you for asking our opinion. As this was our third cruise with Viking, we have become used to the very high standards, not only in hospitality, but also in organisation. We have been to Russia, to China, and this year to Europe. We found the cabins on our previous cruises slightly more roomy, but we understand that there are limits to the size of the ships on the European rivers. We went on, ...

When you have traveled a lot you think you have experienced it all but that's not true until you take a Viking river cruise. We did the 14 day Grand European on the Jarl. From the minute we left O'Hare Airport until we returned 15 days later we really never had to think, only experience. Viking truly thought of everything before we even knew we needed it. The cabins appear terribly small until ...

Cruising down the river

This the the first river cruise for my wife and me, although we have taken several ocean cruises. I always was curious about the Viking ad of less time getting there and more time being there. And it was so true. Our cruise started in Amsterdam and ended in Budapest with pre stay in Amsterdam and then post stay in Prague (via motor coach). The sights were amazing, a real step back in history with ...

Not as advertised, not good value for money

The benefit of a river cruise, which we expected to be less crowds in ports and more personalized service, were evident; however there were many disappointments. First, we paid more than $1000.00 per day more than a year in advance on the premise that this was half price. Not so! The majority of the people we met paid less than half of what we paid, only a few weeks prior to the cruise. River ...

April 17: Cut a deal with Icelandic Air to stay in Keflavik for a day (saved enough to pay for the hotel and meals), then took a jeep tour with localguides.is to the glacier, geysir, waterfall. Pricey, but a lot of fun and includes Icelandic meals and snacks. Stayed at Hotel Berg in Keflavik and ate dinner at Cafe Duus a hundred meters away. April 18: Up early, breakfast, and catch the hotel ...

Tulips and Windmills river cruise

Our timing for this cruise was fortunate, since northern Europe had a warm winter, and the tulips were in full bloom. We could see tulip fields from the air before our landing in Amsterdam. We had the opportunity to see the fields on several occasions, as well as a tour of the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens. An excursion to a tulip farm was extremely informative. We had no idea that most of the ...

This was our first river cruise (Tulips and Windmills) (although we have taken many ocean cruises) and we were impressed with accommodations, staff, quality of the tours, food and fellow passengers. There were only two shore guides that didn't impress us, but overall the tours were well done and very informational. We traveled mostly at night so we didn't see much of the various rivers and weren't ...

Rhine Christmas Markets aboard the Viking Jarl

Arrived a couple of days early to visit the museums and go around town a bit. If luggage light, take the subway in from the airport for about 5 euro; otherwise walk outside to the Connexion Blue Vans and get dropped off at your hotel for 16.50 apiece. Four people? Taxi is cheaper…. Stayed at the MovenPick on the waterfront, great location between the two piers that Viking uses, 5 minute walk from ...
