Wonderful Experience - Exceeded Expectations
"The port & food were so good & the experience facilitated bonding with fellow Vikings the first night on board which made the whole trip extra fun!We did one evening tour on our own that was fun and encountered live music in the square late at night with locals singing along and dancing which was a delightful experience...."Read More

This was our first Viking River Cruise, but it won't be our last. Everyone on the staff and crew made sure we had an excellent experience. The Duiro River was experiencing high waters and behind the scenes the captain and crew were working very hard to keep us on track. However, those of us who were passengers never missed an excursion or experience because of all their hard work. Meals were ...

We chose to go on a river cruise, thinking it would be as advertised—relaxing, immersive, and beautiful scenery along a river. We got a crowded bus tour with a view of the boat next to us 5 nights out of 8. Save your money. The Douro River tour is falsely advertised. It’s up early every day (before 7 am), get on a bus by 8:15 am, go to a location (no time for exploring), get a crowded tour by ...

We've done many Viking cruises; this was one we hadn't yet done so Post-COVID, we were ready to get back to cruising. We had the misfortune to have our cruise start at the same time as the imminent arrival of Pope Francis in Lisbon for World Youth Day celebration. Viking notified us only a couple weeks before the cruise, but they had to have known this months in advance. The panoramic city bus ...

It was pretty obvious that this ship had a very cohesive staff. They seemed to work well together and actually like each other. This helped make our experience great. When my husband became sick for a few days, they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and cared for. The entertainment was delightful, the meals outstanding, rooms clean and comfortable and the excursions ...

It was a wonderful trip! We were surrounded by people quality from leadership to staff to guides to fellow Vikings, fabulous food & drink, unique opportunities to immerse in the culture while enjoying beautiful scenery everywhere we went. It wasn’t a relaxing trip - there was a lot to do & see & learn. I loved that most of the excursions were included so we got to experience a lot of ...

It was our third Viking River cruise and we have been more than pleased at the overall quality of every aspect of cruising with Viking, including overall value. This destination, the Douro, was recommended to us by travelers we met on our previous cruises. The Ships are great. The Staff is friendly and helpful. And the guides they choose, local and from the ships, are off the charts outstanding. ...

Wonderful cruise on the Duoro River

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Viking had been recommended to me by a friend who has been on 3 Viking river and ocean cruises. My son was in Portugal last year, and loved it, so that's why we decided on the Duoro River cruise. This is was an adult cruise, with only about 140 passengers. I went with 3 friends and we spent 2 nights in Lisbon in a 5 star hotel as part of the package, then headed north to Porto to board the ...

The crew and the service were excellent. The food was above expectations. Ship was very well maintained for its age etc. Significant number of bus trips to reach excursions. Expected more in the excursions albeit the guides were very good. Open seating does not mean you can go to eat during the hours of operations. They want you to arrive when dining starts. Expected more variety of ...

We went on a Douro river cruise with Viking in early April with another couple. The service was amazing, the program manager and guides were fabulous. It was nice being able to cruise during daytime hours. You will get to go through several locks. Once you go through one, you will understand why Viking built these particular vessels the way they did. We went mostly on the included excursions ...

We have been traveled on Viking 4 times before and they never disappoint. From the ship, food, side excursions and crew one can not ask for a better vacation. The scenery, was so beautiful that I could not believe it was real. Meeting the captain daily and the rest of the crew made for a very pleasant, caring time. Our cabin was on the middle deck and suited our needs. Most of the time ...
