Review for Viking Kara to Europe - River Cruise

I think the food was the surprisingly best thing about the trip. It was gourmet and interesting and delicious. The onshore trips were well planned and great. The staff was unfailingly sweet and helpful.We were able to travel with someone in a wheelchair which was great too, they planned for "easy walking" options. The cabins were small but clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were ...

Danube was beatiful, just not enough of it

We had a great river cruise on the Rhine a few years ago, decided to do the Budapest-Regensburg Danube cruise. Wow, talk about geographic differences. The cities Budapest, Vienna, (Germany:)Passau, Regensburg were as expected; gorgeous. 1000 year old architecture just blows me away, and walking inside of cathedrals leaves me breathless. But the actual river cruise part was SO different from the ...

Balcony - not usable!!!

The staff, cleanliness, food was excellent but keep in mind a few things: - We had a room with balcony but 3 out of 8 nights another ship was blocking the view. Viking parks the ships side by side thus saving on paying docking fees but totally messing up your experience - On our itinerary we had to dock in Passau for one night but they changed plans and took us back to Austria to some small ...

Not a 5* River Cruise

Having done a lot of research river cruising we plumped for this itinerary travelling up the Rhine and then Danube, Amsterdam to Budapest. This was our first river cruise, having previously been on Ocean cruises. According to the advertisements it would tick all our boxes, alas that was not to be the case. We never considered that there would be low water levels that would disrupt the whole ...

No More 5 Star Rating for Viking

The rating is linked to a specific ship but the 3-star rating includes the performance of pre-cruise customer service, Viking Air, MyVikingJourney.com and etc. We had high expectation of this trip because Viking in the past always exceeded expectations. Viking's onboard crew continued to excel at the highest level, especially the wait staff in the restaurants. However, I did experience ...

Poor flight scheduling

The cruise was very good but the flight schedule was terrible. We are looking for a cruise line that books air flights more thoughtfully. Recommend that the flight schedule be defined prior to final payment. Dinning staff was excellent. Chef excellent and a bit amusing as well. Ship was well run, except for an incident in one of the locks. We were provided with details of the issue, ...

First European River Cruise and Ama sets the bar high

Although no stranger to cruising this was our first river cruise in Europe. We took up Ama's offer for a free cruise for Front Line Workers. We enjoyed every minute of this cruise and its ship, the Ama Certo. Upon arrival we were made to feel welcome. Our stateroom was excellent and we enjoyed sailing with the windows open at night. We were fortunate that the weather was comfortable and the ...

RELAXATION?

Review for Emerald Dawn to Europe - River Cruise

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise for relaxation and panorama. We got plenty panorama but not much rest. The biggest problem was the departure times of the visits, 8am or 8.30am. We were 90% elderly people and like to lie in in the mornings, especially when on holiday. We could see no harm in the departure times being a little later, maybe 9.30am. Most tours were over well before the ship set sail again. We ...

A First-timer's Review of the Scenic Jade

Review for Scenic Jade to Europe - River Cruise

Pre-Cruise: We were among the group of Scenic passengers impacted by the ransomware attack on Scenic’s website in February 2022. Based on positive reviews on CruiseCritic, we took the leap of faith and made our final payment in March. The hack put the Scenic website offline for about 6 weeks, and holds to reach an agent by phone took hours. We ended up calling Scenic two weeks before departure ...
