Nearly everything about our Viking experience was excellent - booking, meeting and transportation to/from airports, welcome on the ship, room accommodations, dining, shore excursions, Dominic our cruise director, super-friendly and helpful staff, and much more. Our first Viking cruise has probably ruined us from ever booking another cruise company. The Grand European Tour was wonderful - the ...

This cruise was highly recommended by our trusted AMA travel agent. My husband and I were not disappointed! From the moment our plane landed in Amsterdam we were treated to Viking’s amazing hospitality and friendly professionalism. The ship’s design was beautiful and exceptionally clean. Stunning river views were maximized throughout. We booked one of the two Explorer Suites which provided ...

Wanted to visit Christmas Marts in various cities. Cruise director was very mindful of our needs and was helpful all throughout the cruise. Cruise was excellent for all the stops. Easy to find the ship at various towns. Everything close to ship. Individual tour guides at each town did an excellent job describing the city and all we should see. Budapest was a wonderful city we were ...

This was our first adventure on a river cruise and so we chose to sail with Viking whose name was associated with great service. Our expectations were far exceeded. Our normal vacation would include a beach resort so a river cruise was outside of our comfort zone. However, from the first minute to the last we were completely blown away with the whole experience. Discovering great cities like ...

We started with a few extra days in Prague which is well worth visiting with so many sights, food and interesting shopping venues. We then headed to our embarkation point of Budapest where after dinner the enchantment of this cruise began with a cruise up and down the Danube River through the lit up city. It was a thrill to think that this was only the beginning. The Skadi was a wonderful ...

Just loved River Cruise. The sights on deck, the dining experience no preferred seating, the extremely helpful staff, the outings at each port, so well organized and finally the cleanliness everywhere on board’ and the very comfortable cabins. I do however suggest you do not take the outing at the baths in Budapest, they were not what we were expecting’ felt like just a big pool we have at ...

We had a great time. We traveled with old friends with whom we had taken two other trips. The service was terrific as was the staff in all areas of the ship. The meals were excellent and we loved the fact that we did not HAVE to change into fancy clothes for dinner unless we wished to do so. The side excursions were all excellent and the extra trips we took were well worth our time and a ...

We are not cruisers, per se, but the itinerary, the size of the ship and Viking's reputation spurred us to give it a shot. We've been on many guided tours around the world and rank Viking's Grand European Cruise as one of our best overseas vacations. The on-board staff were wonderfully helpful, professional and knew their stuff. We missed a connection because of bad weather--we went one way, ...

Heard from others that they truly enjoyed this trip, so decided to try it. Was not disappointed at all. Days flew by quickly because we were so busy in a nice casual way. Up early for breakfast and then off to a tour each day. Some days were full tour days with some walk around and some on our own to wander. We had time to play cards with old friends and enjoyed meeting new ones. Freedom ...

This was our second river cruise with Viking and we liked the ease of being on the boat for 14 days with minimal packing and unpacking and cruising all of the rivers. So relaxing. While all the cities, sites, tours were incredible we liked being on the river seeing the world at 11mph the best. This was the "Easy Button" of all vacations that we have taken - it is no surprise this is the most ...
