Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

Carolina_80
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had curtailed travel for the past 3-4 years because of work, COVID, and parental caregiver responsibilities. During this time we achieved an age milestone, retired, and celebrated 40+ years of marriage. We wanted a special way to celebrate all of this so we chose Viking. This was our first Viking cruise and our first trip to this part of Europe. We liked the idea of the river cruise so that we ...

Amazing adventure

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

AuD Crew
2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

I absolutely loved my time on the Viking Alruna. This is the second Viking cruise I’ve been on and loved it just as much as the first one (first time with friends instead of family). The staff was amazing, the accommodations and food were great, the stops were fantastic. Special shoutout the BILLY, Alexandra, Van Allen, Laurentiu, Shemy, and Uri. All contributed to our time being enjoyable and ...

Taking That First Viking River Cruise in Europe - Treasures of the Rhine (Christmas-New Years Trip)

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hlin

Irish In America LLC
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Our first Viking River Cruises. We Sailed from Basel, Switzerland on the 23d on December 2023 on the Viking Ship Hlin up the Rhine River to Amsterdam. Our Original Viking Sister Ship the Alruna was not available for this River Cruise. Both ships are similar in design and service, and we transition into our A Veranda Stateroom with ease. Several of the Viking Service Staff were present to help ...

A Crushing Disappointment

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Sigrun

AHB58
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Christmas on the Rhine - that’ll be special and nice I thought. What a crushing disappointment that turned out to be, onboard Viking Sigrun. Chose Viking off the back of good online reviews and those of friends who had travelled with them, and expectations were high. Before even starting the trip Viking delivered disappointment . This trip was booked in the previous March and in June ...

Beautiful Christmas along the Rhine

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Kara

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My wife and I have never been on a cruise before. In 2023 we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, and were looking to take a trip. When initial ideas didn't work with our timeframe, we ended up looking at other options that ended up with us finding Viking's Christmas Market cruise along the Rhine. We somewhat impulsively booked it in July of 2023. At the time it accounted for the sixth ...

Wonderful cruise!

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on Viking Tialfi

CM-
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The restaurant meals aboard the ship were perfect! We loved having so many choices for starters, salads, entrees, and desserts -- both daily offerings and regional specialties. The service was equally perfect -- all of the staff were so attentive to us and we could not have asked for better! They learned our names and were eager to serve us. After a couple of days, they often knew what ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Panorama

Ivana McGrail
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

I went on this cruise as part of a travel group of 20. There were some hiccups at the outset due to high water levels on the Rhine. Avalon did an amazing job to make sure their guests were well cared for and accommodated and still provided all the tours. The local guides provided were top notch and the food provided by Avalon delicious and plentiful. The staff worked incredibly hard and ...

Perfect Vacation on the Rhine

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Avalon Tranquility II

Perfect Vacatio
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I did a lot of research before we chose to sail with Avalon and I am so glad we did. We opted for the 2 days in Lucerne before the cruise and that was a great choice. I can't say enough about how wonderful the entire trip was from beginning to end. Starting with our hotels in Lucerne and Basel to the ease of the airport transfer from the boat in Amsterdam to the airport. The boat was ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

Happy Cruiser 808
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

The River Rhine Christmas Market Cruise was at the top of the bucket list of one of our good friends that we frequently travel with and this would be our first trip to Europe. We have been on several ocean cruises and had chosen the Inland Passage specifically to Alaska to avoid rough seas; we had heard that river cruises were much less turbulent and our sailing on the Alruna was most pleasant ...
