Egyptian history in a nutshell

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Viking Osiris

Nameless One
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Viking Osiris is a great Nile River ship, intimate, new, and designed for this service. Take advantage of all optional trips, especially the hot air balloon at dawn over the Valley of the Kings and the trip to Abu Simbel. The days are long, with little down time, but you cover a lot of history. The boat is relatively informal, no need to dress for dinner, etc., as you may be just coming ...

Magical Rhine River Experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

UKRambler
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Amsterdam the service provided by the Viking “Tialfi” staff was more than we could have hoped for. The program director did a marvelous job of coordinating our excursions so that we made the most of our time in the historic and charming ports of call along the Rhine. The tour guides were very knowledgable and provided a good mix of history and culture ...

One of our most memorable trips ever!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

Carolina_80
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had curtailed travel for the past 3-4 years because of work, COVID, and parental caregiver responsibilities. During this time we achieved an age milestone, retired, and celebrated 40+ years of marriage. We wanted a special way to celebrate all of this so we chose Viking. This was our first Viking cruise and our first trip to this part of Europe. We liked the idea of the river cruise so that we ...

The best way to experience the Nile

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Viking Aton

Mr.Bill1
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I are generally ocean cruise fans, but we took this trip in order to explore the history of Egypt. It's hard to imagine a better itinerary than the one organized by Viking. One of the highlights was Nefertari's tomb. Admission is limited to 100 visitors a day, and on the day we visited over half of those were our fellow passengers. The tour guides (Program Directors in Viking ...

Amazing adventure

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

AuD Crew
2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

I absolutely loved my time on the Viking Alruna. This is the second Viking cruise I’ve been on and loved it just as much as the first one (first time with friends instead of family). The staff was amazing, the accommodations and food were great, the stops were fantastic. Special shoutout the BILLY, Alexandra, Van Allen, Laurentiu, Shemy, and Uri. All contributed to our time being enjoyable and ...

Overland Bus Tour

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Osfrid

NorwaySuz
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose to go on a river cruise, thinking it would be as advertised—relaxing, immersive, and beautiful scenery along a river. We got a crowded bus tour with a view of the boat next to us 5 nights out of 8. Save your money. The Douro River tour is falsely advertised. It’s up early every day (before 7 am), get on a bus by 8:15 am, go to a location (no time for exploring), get a crowded tour by ...

For me this cruise was like watching a high school production of “Let’s sail the Missisippi” with a $13,000 ticket price

Review for a North America River Cruise on Viking Mississippi

Travelers unite
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I paid for two lower level cabins. We traveled as two single women celebrating the end of a tough work year. Each was about $7,000. The ship is new and is beautiful. The living room (central event and sitting area) is very nice. The couches are really low on the ship and many elderly people couldn't get up without a lot of effort however. The bar is laid out nicely and is a friendly place to go. ...

Taking That First Viking River Cruise in Europe - Treasures of the Rhine (Christmas-New Years Trip)

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hlin

Irish In America LLC
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Our first Viking River Cruises. We Sailed from Basel, Switzerland on the 23d on December 2023 on the Viking Ship Hlin up the Rhine River to Amsterdam. Our Original Viking Sister Ship the Alruna was not available for this River Cruise. Both ships are similar in design and service, and we transition into our A Veranda Stateroom with ease. Several of the Viking Service Staff were present to help ...

Christmas markets cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vilhjalm

John John Anderson
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Went with a few friends and family to see the Christmas markets. I would recommend this to everyone. The 2 bad things were that they had a very heavy rainy season. This made getting from Passau to Budapest very challenging for the crew since we have to go under bridges. We did get stuck in Vienna for an extra night. That was not vikings first rodeo with theses issues. That made things happen so we ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vilhjalm

SSTIES
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We were on the last ship to depart Passau for Budapest along the Danube for the Christmas Markets. We left on December 20th after a stay in Passau. We had rain and as the river began to rise it became questionable about making our destination in Budapest by ship. We were able to make our scheduled stops in Linz and in Krems. We departed Krems after the morning excursions in order to get ahead of ...
