Nearly everything about our Viking experience was excellent - booking, meeting and transportation to/from airports, welcome on the ship, room accommodations, dining, shore excursions, Dominic our cruise director, super-friendly and helpful staff, and much more. Our first Viking cruise has probably ruined us from ever booking another cruise company. The Grand European Tour was wonderful - the ports of call ranged from beautiful small villages to large interesting cities like Budapest, Vienna, Nürnberg and Köln. Not perfect? Our captain had less than a sparkling personality, the free wifi disconnected too often, the ship-to-shore gangplanks were sometimes steep and wet, and passenger ages ranged 45-80, definitely a grey-haired crowd. Not Viking's fault, but our American Airlines connections between Philly and Budapest were on vintage 1980s airplanes - great food but embarrassing video screens and no USB ports. Viking is at the upper-end of cruising quality and price, and you definitely get what you pay for. Except for extra shore excursions, our cruise was nearly all-inclusive, including wine and drinks at lunch and dinner, and well worth it. I can't recommend Viking enough - we're done with Holland, Carnival, etc. Read Less

We started on Skadie, we loved everything about it. Especially the hospitality captain. The Dinner host went so far above & beyond it would be difficult to describe. Her services were so outstanding, they all worked so well together. The room service was discrete & accommodating. Everyone was so friendly and seemed happy in their jobs. Moral is #1 in any business. We changed ships 1/2 way due to low H2O in the river. They made it so effortless for us, we did not miss a thing on the schedule. The Bragie was welcoming, same rooms ready for us. Our ships hospitality guide changed ships with us. The service, food, accommodations again flawless. The schedule of excursions were so well timed, not to much, & plenty of time for self exploration & Viking assistance to get to & from the ship. They made the trip so easy, & completely stress free. The timing of the passing thru the many locks was impressive, causing no disruption in sight seeing, dining or sleeping. There was less time to lounge up top than expected, but the times we couldn’t be up top some type of activity was planned. Our only regret was loosing the day in Budapest to travel to our extended excursion in Prague. We did both pre & post extensions and both were 1st rate, The only issue is when we arrived in the am tired from the flight we could not check into our rooms, they held our bags & offered suggestions of what to do for 6 hours... but we were tired & sleepy. We later learned the most outstanding pool area had lounge chairs we may have taken a nap on. The Okura in Amsterdam has a speculator pool, spa, sauna hot tub area with separate gym & lounge. This may be the overall best trip we have taken. Thankful the water levels were high enough. Read Less

The entire staff on the cruise always went above and beyond to make sure everyone had everything they needed. One night we came onboard after the dinner was over (after 9:30) and the staff even prepared a special dinner for the two of us. The entertainment on board was great and very educational. I loved the fact that each stop had an included excursion. The guides were every knowledgeable and they could answer any question that was asked. The head director of the staff had a great sense of humor and made us feel at home. The food was good and the cleaning staff kept on top of the room. The Waite staff in the restaurant was very attentive and the food options were delicious. We loved the complimentary wine and beer. We took part in some excursions were added to our great experience seeing the Netherlands. Look forward to going on a second Viking cruise. Read Less
