Review for Emerald Radiance to Europe - River Cruise

Wanted to visit Portugal Never done a river cruise before This came up with the dates we wanted, and it was day to book. Flights were changed a couple of times. The food is good but not up to the standard we have come expect on Ocean cruises, and the choice was more limited, though most people thought it excellent Most of the excursions are included as well as, transfers, drinks ...

After 20 months it was great to be cruising again. Virtuosa is a beautiful brand new ship. Food was excellent, even though we only ate in a specialty restaurant once. MSC is really up to par with the best when it comes to food. Staff on the ship was great, really everybody very helpful and doing their best. Entertainment was good but a bit the same, every day, always great costumes and great ...

Fabulous customer service

Review for Scenic Azure to Europe - River Cruise

The crew on Scenic Azure were literally fantastic. This was billed as a five star cruise and I must say it was truly six star cruising. We are experienced and regular cruisers on both ocean and river, and we have never been treated so well on any cruise or by and cruise company. The answer was yes - before the question asked. The Douro has the most lovely scenery and the quality of the ...

Review for Viking Helgrim to Europe - River Cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Before I start, I’m sorry this is a long review! My sister and I have travelled extensively on European rivers but for various reasons not with Viking until this year. We had planned this trip for several years but illness and a pandemic got in the way. We were looking forward to our river Douro experience on Viking Helgrim. The cruise had been cancelled and rearranged several times, but ...

We have been fortunate to have travelled with Emerald previously and have really enjoyed the experience, have to say this is without doubt the best. Hard to identify why but scenery and the fantastic crew stand out for mention. From the moment we stepped onto the Ship we felt comfortable and well looked after, the service levels are just right, not pushy but just right. The staff and I mean ...

Uniworld Queen Isabel disappoints

Review for Queen Isabel to Europe - River Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I have sailed with Uniworld twice before and with Viking a few times. I chose this sailing because of the beauty of Portugal and the friendliness of its people. Although the scenery was lovely, people do need to understand that the regulations on the Douro only allow for sailing during daylight hours. This means very limited time in port and a lot of time on the ship. Also, except for Porto, ...

MSC is deteriorating

Review for MSC Preziosa to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Embarkation was quick and smooth. The Preziosa is a beautifull ship with a good layout. We were cruising in an Aurea suite which includes the ‘Easy’ drinking package, massage and spa access. Overall food quality is below average, in the buffet hot food is just warm. If you’re looking for Nutella or something alike they refer to the shop where you can buy(!) it. Never heard that one before. At ...

Portugal’s River of Gold

Review for Viking Osfrid to Europe - River Cruise

Portugal River of Gold
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The breakfast choices were not as expansive as other river cruises and coffee was poor. Lunch choices as well were limited. Dinner choices were limited and some menus were good but small portions with protein. Deserts were average in taste. If you don’t upgrade to silver spirits your wine will be poor. The ship service was good with the exception of dinner. The staff was slim for this ...

Disappointing First Celebrity Cruise

Review for Celebrity Reflection to Europe - British Isles & Western

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

The most disappointing aspect was the room. We booked a verandah. The mattress was old and uncomfortable as were the pillows which were very hard. The towels were rough and worn. The lighting was also outdated as was the entire ship. The food was very good as was the service. We had an excellent room attendant and excellent waiters in the main dining room. There was very little assistance ...

Review for Viking Torgil to Europe - River Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a wonderful small-boat cruise on the Duoro river. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We were expecting some walking tours of the ports where we docked each day, but were almost always met by Viking buses that took us to other interesting sites in Portugal. It was a combination riverboat and bus tour. The buses were nice, but it seemed we spent a lot of time on them. One of the highlights was ...
