This was the second time we have sailed on the Regal Princess. The first was on the Med Cruise on the first few months the Regal went into service. We found the food in the dining rooms not as great at the first cruise, but the staff still helpful and great. The buffet was..well the buffet..as expected. The ports were the attraction for this cruise and they were great. We only used one ...

We were excited about taking our first cruise on a river plus we wanted to learn more about Eastern Europe and see key cities such as Berlin & Prague. Our one disappointment was to find at the last minute there would not be a short cruise which we had expected, but no cruising due to low water on the Elbe. We were docked at Wittenberg for 4 days and then switched to the sister ship in Dresden for ...

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 to give us their perspective of the area and events. They were able to bring alive the events of 70 years ago. The art museums were of particular interest also. Our guide was able ...

We had done a Rhine River Cruise with Viking and thought this would be a nice trip in July with warmer weather that our last trip in November. We started with 3 nights at the Grand Hyatt in Berlin, which was far above our expectations. The Elbe was much quieter than the busy Rhine and we enjoyed much more than the Rhine. It was very relaxing to sit on the top deck and watch the storks, campers ...

Bucket list cruise with brothers & son. Overall, very good. Staff was excellent, ship was below expectations. Ship did not meet standards established by Viking on Russia and China cruises. Understand Viking is building new ships for Elbe River Cruises and Fontane will be sold. If true, it's overdue. Recommend you book extra night(s) in Berlin and Prague to explore these cities. You can do ...

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 and we were rewarded with an actual sail, merely failing to sail to the last port. All excursions took place and the staff worked tirelessly to make the cruise a success. The tour ...

We just voyaged on the new Regal, for over three weeks, September 2015. At about this same time last year we sailed on the Regal's sister, the Royal Princess, and in January of this year we sailed on the Coral Princess. The truth is, it is very difficult to rate cruise ships since they keep changing as the industry evolves and matures. There is no such thing as a best cruise line or best cruise ...

So to begin, I am not a cruise lover BUT I wanted to go to St. Petersburg and start from a Berlin visit. All in all, service spectacular, value good, met my needs. Wish the St. Petersburg had been a 3 day stay and that the port for Stockholm was not an hour bus srive away, cutting into the day in this wonderful city. Sorry that day in Oslo was Sunday as almost everything is closed! Helsinki ...

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 trees with few villages or scenic views. Although we were aware of the water level problem on the Elbe we were not aware its seriousness. As were many this year, we were disappointed ...

This was our second Viking River cruise. Did a pre-trip extension in Berlin which was fab. Right in the heart of the city @ the Hilton, w/i walking distance of great food and prominent sights. Saw the Queen of England, spent a day in the main train station just train watching & exploring, and enjoying sight, sounds & tastes of Berlin. On to Potsdam, our ship & headed to Wittenberg. My wife ...
