"From the first excursion in Prague through the last one in Paris, the Viking process ran like a finely tuned machine.After considering several cruise companies we selected Viking based on many positive reviews and consistently high cruise industry ratings...."Read More

This was our first Viking river cruise after two Viking ocean cruises. Other than a glitch with our Viking air arrangements which cost us a deviation fee, our flight from JFK to CDG, being met at the airport, transport to our Paris hotel & checkin were all easy. The Alsvin is a lovely ship; Viking shipboard staff were welcoming & helpful when needed; food was delicious. Lukas, program director ...

Our first Viking Cruise was canceled due to COVID. So when my friend from Kindergarten and her husband invited us to join them, we immediately said yes. The Alsvin Ship cruise and crew were amazing. Every crew member, the hosts, the servers, the receptionists, the housekeepers, the chefs, the captains, the tour guides were so very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Prior to embarking on the ship, we ...

Disappointing Christmas River Cruise

We wanted to do a Christmas Market cruise and the preferred one was full. This sounded like a good alternative. We realize the flooded rivers were beyond the control of Viking, but the adjustment made didn't work that well for us. We were bused for hours to and from the scheduled excursions. We usually had the same amount of time at the towns, but free time to explore the towns on our own was ...

We preferred to include Prague and Paris on land as part of this itinerary which focused on German towns. Did not realize ship was not at same spot when arriving and departing all ports. The staff was amazing but there wasn’t enough entertainment after dinner. Piano man was very good but not enough. The Music Trivia engaging game by team was fabulous. Additional Inter-active activities ...

I cannot say enough about Viking Cruises but that's because I don't have enough pages. They truly aim to give you the best experience. The Program Directors must work tirelessly to coordinate all they have to offer. I always feel safe and guided from the time I get off the plane where someone is waiting for me to transport me and my bags where I need to be, through the sailing experience which is ...

I used to work in Europe and the Cities of Light Cruise went to many of the places I worked while there. Great Cruise starting in Prague and we extended at the end to Oxford England to visit Highclere Castle. Excellent stateroom with balcony, amazing service and tour Director…. A new interesting tour each day. Also made lots of new friends who we are keeping in touch with. Suggest you get the Air ...

I'm a fan of PBS and have seen Viking commercials for years. When the opportunity to take a cruise came up, I immediately decided to look into Viking cruises. The trip far exceeded my expectations and I have already started planning on my next river cruise. The staff was extremely attentive, and I really liked that ships officers as well as staff were available throughout the day and ...

After 10 ocean cruises we took our first river cruise and it had its pros and cons. I knew it would be different and low key but I didn't expect this. Embarkation - Went smoothly, no problem getting on board. Internet - Much like other cruises spotty at best Cabin - We had a french balcony and it was much smaller then any balcony cabin I've been in before. ...

This cruise was our retirement gift to each other. We had been looking at Viking for several years, and decided this was the best riverboat cruise line for us. We did put this off a couple of years to make sure that Covid would not interfere. We were not disappointed at all. The crew was the best and were very attentive to our needs and those of the other passengers. Kalin, our cruise ...

This is my 8th river cruise with Viking. Obviously, I do love the Viking experiences. I did discover on this trip that I do not particularly like staying in hotels before and after the cruise simply because there is too much loading and unloading of suitcases. That, of course, is just a person preference. The hotels were fine, although the Hilton in Prague was somewhat removed, resulting in our ...
