Best Viking experience by far!

Review for Viking Beyla to Europe - River Cruise

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We were looking for something a bit different from the normal European rivers and the Elbe looked interesting. On the surface it's a typical Viking river cruise - great food, top flight staff, comfortable up to date ship, excellent shore excursions lead by knowledgable and personable guides. But there was something extra on this ship (beyond the best Cruise Director in the industry and the waiter ...

Elegant Elbe with a fantastic Captain, Hotel Manager, Program Director, and of course… Chef Galin

This was a newer offering and the ports and stops included places we had not been to before. The entire crew worked to make the voyage wonderful! I do not recall the hotel manager’s name, but he made every gathering fun and funny. What a great sense of humor. The program director Kalin was always on the ball and foot great care of us during our time with him. Chef Galin (and Kalin) is from ...

Celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. Crew and ship were tops! River was a pleasure. We heard cuckoo birds in the woods by the river. The tours were interesting and beautiful. The pianist was superb. The meals were fabulous. Other guests were very nice. I would love to go again; threatened to never leave! Everything was clean and modern. Bed was comfortable. Available tea, coffee, and ...

Short River cruise with excellent city tours

We wanted to visit Berlin for the first time and revisit Prague again after many years. The Viking Astrild is one of the smaller ships in the fleet. Our ship was not fully booked and day tours fit easily in two of Viking’s busses. We were able to meet most of our fellow travelers on the short five days on the river aboard the Astrild. The Elbe is a relatively small river with mostly farm lands an ...

Too many nights in hotels

I chose this cruise because I really wanted to see Prague. Berlin was also an absolute treat. I was disappointed, however, since we spent more nights in hotels than we did on the ship. The hotel in Berlin was so miserably hot we couldn't sleep, and the hotel wasn't able to fix it. I also didn't like that we were only provided breakfast at the hotels. The hotel in Prague was very nice, but I will ...

Continuous Disappointment

Review for MS Spitsbergen to Europe - British Isles & Western

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The cruise to the outer British Isles was booked in March of 2020 after a very successful cruise up the Norwegian coast. With such a high opinion of Hurtigruten, we waited eagerly for the sailing of this cruise on April 11, 2022. To be fair, we were well greeted by the crew and very well looked after by housekeeping and the dining staff. The ship is comfortable and our cabin, 413, was spacious and ...

Another Fantastic Viking Cruise

This was our second river cruise with Viking, and after experiencing the fantastic boats, staff and value, we would not book with any other firm. Post Covid we were a little anxious, however the measures put in place soon put us completely at rest. We added the Hamburg extension at the beginning of our holiday, and the hotel (The Westin Elbphilharmonie) and ICE (inter city express) train ...

Viking Gave Me the Worst Cruise Out of My 36 Cruises

Viking touts it's luxury and wonderful excursions.I just returned from the worse cruise experience of my life and I blame it on Viking River Cruises. Viking is not the image they advertise! Their website didn't work for months before my cruise. It took an hour to get through the phones. My flight back -which Viking arranged - was canceled and they never informed me (Luckily I looked ...

"Elegant Elbe" gives fascinating view of former East Germany

Itinerary (2 days in Berlin, 5 day cruise including Wittenburg, Meissen and Dresden, 2 days Prague) appealed to us and didn't disappoint. Viking's cruise environment is (for us) a good mix of levity, entertainment and enrichment led by excellent program director Rik and enhanced by unadvertised extras such as an evening walk in Torgau, a lacemaking demo (and chance to try), a talk from a local ...

Elbe River Cruise with Poland

We have been on other river cruises with other vendors. We heard that Viking was the best and wanted to see Berlin and Poland so we thought we would give Viking a try. We agree it's the best although also the most expensive. The service and accommodations were the best. Our tour director and ship director were extremely organized, helpful and had a great sense of humor. We have already booked ...
