Viking Idi - a Wonderful Vacation!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Idi

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise on the Idi was 5* wonderful in so many ways - the ship, crew, customer service, food and attention to all the details that could make or break a perfect vacation. I will gladly spread the word of Viking's excellence. If I had any issues, one would be the amount of time we had to spend on buses - I understand seeing where we had to dock, but it was still disappointing and probably ...

We had a group,of 6 of us. The service was beyond excellent from the cabin steward to the activities coordinator to the wonderful restaurant staff. All very engaging and responsive. The cities we visited were very interesting with lots of history and charming old town centers. My one complaint would be the number of bus rides to get to the cities. Our last itinerary(Marseilles to Lyon) was ...

This trip had more bus riding than expected. We expected to board the ship in Paris but instead we had a 3 hour bus ride to meet the ship, then a 4 hour ride to get to Prague. This should be made clear on the web site. We felt very rushed at first but it was fun being busy. There was no down time to read a book unless you don't leave the ship. The food was ok nothing stood out as being great, ...

The river cruise itself was good, except we could not use the upper deck. First because it rained a little, which we expected, but with the coming of all the low bridges and locks the upper deck was unavailable the majority of the time. Because of this I would not recommend this particular river cruise. The customer service before our trip was not my expected Viking experience. I never received ...

Almost crusing on the flooded Rhine River, but not a total loss thanks to Viking's superior management and resourcefulness.

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first cruise of any sort and we wanted to experience the Swiss, German, and French Christmas Markets while being pampered on the beautiful Viking River ship Idi. However high water on the Rhine River due to previous heavy rains and snow melt caused flooding and prevented our ship from passing under bridges on the Rhine River. Instead we were bused to Strasbourg, France where our ship ...

I cruise about 2x/year. Over the past few years, half of my cruises have been on Viking. The Christmas market cruise was my first Viking river cruise. While the Christmas markets were interesting, the cruise was hampered by the high river levels that prevented ships from travelling under bridges. (Last year when I considered a river cruise I passed since at the time the rivers in Europe were too ...

1. Bed is old and small, size like a car seat. 2. The food is terrible in the first three days, a lot of leave off. They cook the leftovers for lunch. Lol 3. A few days need to wake up at 4am, because they request to put the luggage out at 5:30am. Crazy!!! 4. Excursion (included), everyday is church and Christmas markets. Sometimes church is small, Christmas markets is small like only 5 ...

This was our Third Viking River cruise and our 6th viking cruise....It will be our last! We chose this cruise because we had done a Viking Christmas Market cruise before and we had a credit left over from covid that was due to expire. In retrospect, I should have let the credit expire! Evidently this was a fairly new itinerary and, for sure, one that Viking new nothing about. In at least two ...

Despite the high water levels, the crew did an excellent job.

This was our first Viking River cruise, but surely not our last. We had previously cruised with Vantage River cruises who have now gone bankrupt. We have also cruised on many Ocean Cruises with other lines. I've got to say this was much better. The Rhine and Mozel were both flooded, making a real river cruise impossible but the crew did such a fantastic job, we hardly noticed. Although we ...

We really enjoyed everything about this cruise. The ship was lovely and the staff on board was great. The sleeping accommodation was fine and the hotels in Paris and Zurich was perfect. The excursions at each port that were included were well done and gave a nice overview. We were able to cruise during the day and saw many castles along the Rhine river. We took the additional excursions to one ...
