I recommend this cruise to everyone I know. It's the perfect way to get an introduction to Scandinavia and by far the best way to see St. Petersburg, Russia. Everything about the cruise was stress free and very well ...

Always selling/uninspired meals

We have travelled almost 60 days with Princess and have been very satisfied in the past...but something has changed. The food was uninspired and repetitive for such a long cruise. There was no organized bridge for ...

Not enough activities, Princess excursions were poor, too much selling

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. All 3rd party tours were excellent. Thank you Alla (Baltic) & eCoach (Ireland). The Princess tour guides were generally poor. Complaints that the tour was not what the ...

Good accommodations. Excellent port selection. Poor onboard entertainment.

I chose this cruise because it stops in Oslo. Few cruise ships include this beautiful city into their baltic itinerary. If you want a complete baltic/scandinavian experience you cannot afford to skip Oslo. Regal ...

Scenic Cruising of the Elbe

We had not been to Berlin or Prague, and the price was excellent! My husband and I are very interested in history. Each port had such significance to us, and the guides were all very knowledgeable, and were able ...

We had the best time and have been telling everyone about how great it was.

My wife chose the cruise because we wanted to see Germany (where our ancestors came from) and see where Martin Luther lived because we were both of the Lutheran Faith. Both which were fulfilled on this amazing ...

Lots of wonderful ports, relaxing sea days and a bottle of scotch!

After a Princess cruise to the Panama Canal on Coral Princess, we had wanted to do another Princess cruise. The Regal Princess was doing the Baltic and then repositioning to North America. We really liked the ...

Glitzy and crowded

I now know that I'm not a fan of big box cruises. The Regal is huge and jam packed. Not my thing. However, if you fancy big crowds, lots of flash aka Vegas, then it's the cruise for you. The staterooms are well ...

Elbe River with Viking; Not as Good as Advertised

This was our first river cruise. It went on the Elbe River - Berlin to Prague. The average age on this ship was people in their 70's. This, of course, slows down the pace and extent of the tours and limits the ...

Even with low water, an excellent trip

Low water in the Elbe meant that Viking had not sailed for 3 months. Half of our passengers, when given the opportunity, cancelled their trip, in the expectation that the ship would not sail. We chose to go ahead ...

Low Water

After cruising on 5 rivers with Viking I have to say that the Elbe is not my favorite. Very little river traffic made for uninteresting travel and the scenery for the first three days changed little, just fields and ...

Elbe water levels low; be cautious when booking.

Believe what you read about the Elbe. She is not the Danube, the Rhine or the Volga. We read about low water levels prior to our trip and called Viking in California. They have mastered the art of the vague response ...
