Buyer beware, bait and switch from Viking

In our opinion Viking pulled a bait and switch as they knew well in advance that they were not going to be able to deliver the experience touted in their advertising. This was affirmed by my conversations with crew ...

Viking Does It All Right! Amazing Cruise

We have done many ocean cruises and did short (1 day) cruises on the Rhine River, and had thought for some time about trying a river cruise. When we finally got around to talking about it and doing it, we decided ...

We chose this cruise because it took us to places we wouldn't have otherwise visited and we knew we would be spoiled and treated well. Well, it wouldn't be enough to say we received what we expected... the food and ...

This was our first (and last?) river cruise. While it was nice seeing all the cities along the way and only having to unpack once, the time spent on the ship was quite boring. There is very little to do due to the ...
