River Docking, not River Cruising

After 35 cruises, this was the most disappointing ever, mostly a bus trip and Viking cruises are not cheap! We have been on a Viking Ocean cruise and loved it and decided to give their river cruises a try. Viking ...

A wonderful way to see Europe

We are first time Viking river cruisers and everything about the cruise exceeded our expectations. The smaller size of the river boat gives travelers the opportunity to meet people and make new friends. The ...

Great experience, needs more time to explore locations. Tours are expensive.

The idea of confort and quality expected. Over all the trip was very good, but we need more time a shore, to visit some locations like salzburg, and Munich. Some of the local guides did have issues with racism ...

Very Accommodating

We chose this cruise as my wife and I always wanted to see Austria. This has nothing against the Ve, but Vienna is a large city. One day in the city is not enough time. We enjoyed Wassau Valley as words can’t ...
