4 Things Viking doesn’t tell you about their Duoro River cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

1) The 106-passenger ship is too small for “Exploring the World in Comfort”. Standard “staterooms” are really just bedrooms with no sitting area and an average of 20” on each side of the bed. There is no gym, walking track, medical room, theater, or specialty restaurants. If you choose not to go on an excursion, there is nothing to do but sit in the lounge and look at the view or chat with ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

My mom and I thought this would be a wonderful trip on a river cruise to Portugal, a place neither of us had ever been. The positive critique 1st, the cabin was nice and the food overall was a 4 out of 5. I found very little of it relaxing because we were always on a very strict schedule: rise early and go to the dining area to eat breakfast before getting on the bus for the daily excursions. ...

We had not been to Portugal prior and were interested in learning about their wine industry. We found SO much more! The scenery, expert guides, the history. Our favorite tour by far was Marialva. The local guide was so involved in teaching us her rich history. A fabulous experience! But foremost in my thoughts was the wonderful attention of our crew. They made us feel welcome at all times.

Awesome Viking Experience

Quite an amazing trip with Viking up the Douro River in Portugal. I had experienced another river cruise line for a trip in France, but this trip on Viking convinced me I would ONLY book with Viking going forward! What a top-notch and first class operation! There was ZERO stress in every aspect of their service and the trip. From embarking on the ship, our room was fabulous and kept to the ...

River of Gold on Viking Torgil

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Definitely a cruise to be immersed in the culture of the area. It’s not for those looking for casinos, specialty restaurants, or glitzy entertainment. This is an adult ( over 18) ship limited to just over a hundred people. It is definitely a river cruise that I would highly recommend. I would also suggest that passengers do the pre cruise with three days in Madrid, Spain. Although there are ...

Solid Gold Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

McQuade
6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

We had never been to Portugal, so this cruise seemed like a good way to learn about the country, its people, products, and history. We were not disappointed! We especially enjoyed all of the winery visits and port wine samplings! Program Director Radim was very knowledgeable about all things Portuguese, as well as details of each port of call along the Douro River. He was also in Madrid, where ...

Douro River Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

SaS78
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Our on-ship Torgil experience was up to Viking's usual excellent standard: the crew was professional, capable, incredibly courteous and simply fun. The food was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed these folks. The Torgil is a bit older and smaller than the long ships, which means less common area. This would not necessarily be a problem, but for the rain that precluded full use of the top level. ...

Nice, but I wouldn't do it again

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Being loyal Viking cruisers, we decided a Douro River cruise was in order. There were four in our party and this is our collective review of our cruise. We booked the pre-cruise extension but came in a day early and booked the room for the extra night ourselves. The Hotel Tivoli is nothing short of amazing and we were so glad we booked an extra night – we could have stayed there ...

Great first cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Torgil

Bepobas
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We wanted to visit a place neither of us had been before. This sounded like an interesting itinerary. The food was excellent. Service was also excellent. Our time on the ship exceeded our expectations. Day trips were variable- programmed for the slowest in the group. I understand accommodating for people who are less able to walk distances, but it often felt like we were held back. We felt like ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Viking maintained its expected excellent level of service in its Portugal's River of Gold cruise. The itinerary provided wonderful opportunities to learn about and explore the Duoro River region and to venture into Salamanca, Spain (and Santiago de Compostela, Spain on the post-trip). We visited cities, small towns, many wineries, markets and beautiful churches. We enjoyed and learned in all ...
