Not up to Viking Standards

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

As we had river cruised with Viking previously, we expected a top-notch cruise experience. Overall, we had an enjoyable time, but there were several events that, in my opinion, were not up to Viking standards. First, after a day of cruising, we wanted to relax in the lounge with a few drinks before dinner. Each night, the program director would get on the microphone and give a long, detailed ...

I had never been to Budapest, Austria or Germany. This was my second European River Tour. It exceeded my expectations. I was part of a group of eight travelers. Throughout, we enjoyed exceptional food, service, and excursions. We were blessed with sunny comfortable weather, allowing us to explore off-ship, as well as on-ship on the comfortable roof-top. Amazing views of the Narrows, as well ...

This was our fourth Viking Cruise (second River). The primary reason we chose this particular itinerary was to see the Passion Play at Oberammergau in 2022. Viking has a well deserved reputation for excellence, and this cruise was no exception. We booked a French Balcony stateroom, which to us made more sense given the relatively little time we spent in the cabin other than to sleep. Ship was ...

Oberammergau Passion Play was Incredible

We had cruised the Danube with Viking pre-Covid. We toured again to see the play, a once in a decade opportunity, and experience the Danube again, concluding with two additional nights in Budapest. The trip started with a delayed flight from Detroit to Washington DC to connect with the Munich flight. We called the Viking Emergency number and were connected in less than 30 seconds. The Viking ...

We choose Viking River Cruise on the Danube because of our experience with the Viking River Cruise on the Rhine during Christmas which was fantastic. On the Danube River Cruise, the crew took care of us and exceeded all our expectations. The food was delicious and staff were attentive to our culinary desires. In addition, the bar staff went out of their way to make our cruise memorable. Our ...

Passion Play and so much more

We booked this cruise primarily for the Passion Play in Oberammergau and enjoyed all ports of call. We had Viking throughout--Viking Air and the pre-cruise stay. A little trouble with airlines but who doesn't incur that now. Luckily, we made all flights and our luggage was at its final destination. We were three hours late coming into Munich but we called Viking and their agent met us at the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

I am one of those naïve and gullible people who fell for Viking River Cruises because he relied on the exaggerated, positive descriptions by the parent company. “The World's Leading River Cruise Line, The Most Awarded River Cruise, Best Inclusive Value, and the Viking® Difference” sounded, great, generous, and luxurious. I admit I had not read all reviews available on the Internet that have rated ...

This was my 3rd Viking cruise and my wife's 6th. Overall, it was fabulous. The cruise director, Edina, was so very helpful and her tour of Budapest at night was a highlight. Maître d Martina was a joy - the food on this cruise was superb - a cut above the already superior Viking cuisine. The destinations were also wonderful as were the guides in each destination - Achim in Vienna, Ester in ...

The accommodations were great. The service was great. The food choices and quality were great. The sights from the ship were spectacular and the port choices were wonderful. The included excursions at each port city were informative. Language was not a barrier. Our program director was very accommodating and very helpful. She made sure each guest had a wonderful experience. We enjoyed ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We were happy with the ports, and took advantage of the pre-extension to have time to enjoy Prague. This was our 2nd Viking river cruise, and our pleasant memories and experiences brought us back to Viking. The staff is so very welcoming and helpful! The local guides are knowledgeable. And, appreciated all the included excursions, as well as some of the ...
