Viking Duoro River Cruise

Review for Viking Osfrid to Europe - River Cruise

We have traveled on 2 other Viking cruises and had a wonderful time. Great wine choices, lots of local food offerings and beautiful ports of call that we were able to explore in the evening. Since we had heard so many wonderful things about Portugal, we thought the Douro would be a good choice. None of these things held true for this trip. The same wine was served every night. Food was ...

Portugal’s 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 ...

We started the trip with a non-stop flight from Newark to Lisbon. We upgraded to Economy Plus for the extra leg room and enjoyed a smooth flight. We landed in the early morning and after clearing passport control we were met by Viking and transported to the Hotel Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa. It was a lovely hotel and we enjoyed our stay. We arrived so early we had to wait a little until our ...

Douro, River of Gold

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

This was our first river cruise so we asked friends for their recommendation. They had no hesitation in recommending Viking and particularly the river Douro. We departed Manchester on a KLM flight, changing at Amsterdam then onward to Lisbon. The flights were comfortable and kept to the scheduled times. On arrival in Lisbon we were welcomed at the airport by the Viking representative who ...

We are Windstar Cruise lovers so like a small ship. We wanted to take some first time cruiser friends with us and thought a river cruise would be the ticket. We were generally very disappointed with Viking. Some of the crew were great (activity director, piano player) but most of the dining room help were Eastern Europeans with an attitude. Front desk help, ditto. Everyone seemed overworked. ...

Cabin had sewer gas coming out of the shower drain. Made a terrible odor. Ship personnel knew about the situation but continued to book this and several others with the same issue. Apparently the sewer pipes gather under these cabins for the entire ship and the gases and odor rise up through the shower drains is several cabins on several decks. Ship was completely booked so no where to move ...

Portugal is a beautiful country. The people we met were delightful and hospitable; the mountainous scenery is gorgeous, the wine is magnificent, and the history is inspiring. Our Viking trip along the Douro River gave us the opportunity to see, hear and taste much of this lovely country. The Viking River Cruise staff - all of them - from the housekeeping staff, to the waiters and waitresses, ...

One of prettiest rivers in Europe

We are regular Viking river cruisers and had never been to Portugal so this was an ideal way to see the area being sure of great accommodation and food en route ! Our first night in hotel in Lisbon proved a bonus with visits to the area around the city. The ship was typically Viking so, although slightly smaller than Viking's superb longship it was comparable in style and comfort. As usual ...

We had already traveled multiple rivers in Europe. This time we chose the Douro in Portugal. We had a great time learning about the production of port wine, viewing the gorgeous vineyards, and enjoying wonderful food. I caught a terrible cold, but the cruise was fabulous. We had 2 lovely days in Lisbon before boarding the ship. Then traveled the Douro. Beautiful scenery and interesting stops ...

A fantastic Viking River Cruise on the Douro

We really enjoyed this Viking River of Gold cruise along the Douro. We have travelled before with Viking as a few years ago we did the Yangtze River cruise which was amazing and so we expected a lot from Viking. We were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful from start to finish. We flew from Heathrow to Lisbon on October 20th 2018 and spent 2 days there in the Tivoli Hotel. The hotel was ...
