Had a previous experience with Viking in Egypt and loved it. This cruise was as wonderful as the one we had done in Egypt. The ship is lovely! Our room was very comfortable. We were on the lower deck as we had booked late, but we spent so little time in the room that it didn't really matter. The food was excellent. I especially enjoyed the theme night. The service is wonderful. The cruise ...

Loved the itinerary outlined in the marketing materials. Every single port proved to be as outstanding as the advertisements promised. The services on board were all first class. The staff were all gracious and so very accommodating! The standard stateroom was great for us! Enough room for sleeping, bathing and storage. We stayed upstairs most of the time taking in all the scenery or being ...

This was my 4th Viking Cruise and it was to areas I had never been in Europe. I try not to backtrack. As usual it was very well done. Lots of interesting excursions, beautiful scenery. Excursions were paced for all levels of participation. Longships travel at night so during the day you are able to view lots on the shore, castles, castles, castles. So much history to absorb. Staff aboard was ...

We chose this cruise because of Viking‘s attention to detail. They take care of everything and that allows us to relax and enjoy ourselves and not worry about transportation details or itineraries. One of our biggest highlights was adding on a pre-extension in Lake Como, Italy. It allowed us to meet 42 other guests before we joined the ship in Basel, Switzerland. Viking had a private boat tour ...

Took Rhine River Cruise. Everything about it was fantastic—service, guides, tours, food, programs. As always, Viking has every base covered. We did a pre-cruise excursion to Lucerne. We are still talking about it. The entire trip was executed flawlessly by the Viking staff. The cruise along the middle Rhine was breathtaking; the Program Director’s narration inspiring. Every included city tour was ...

The organisation and staff on the Viking cruises are very good. The only thing that mars it a bit is the food, good quality but a bit boring and really not much choice. Salmon was a little overdone on the evenings(said by quite a few people) chicken had very little sauce, so mainly plain food but perhaps this is what the American palette likes and the client was mainly American. Just not so ...

Everything on this cruise was top notch. The food was amazing, excursions so informative, staff took care of our every need. Great deal on airfare through viking. We plan to take another river cruise in the next few years! Our cruise director was so welcoming, and encouraged interaction between passengers. The cabins were VERY small--wr had just come from a celebrity ocean cruise, and ...

We decided that 5 siblings, spouses, and a few more relatives needed to go the Germany since our ancestors originated there. The age range was 59- 81 years old. We thought a small boat river cruise would be fitting for all our physical abilities. We had a fabulous time on the Alruna. The staff was fabulous from Elisabeth, the tour director and staff made each and everyone one of us to feel so ...

This was our (my husband and I) second Viking River Cruise, The first one was on the Seine - from Paris to Normandy in 2015. That was a wonderful cruise; exceptional from beginning to end; inclusive of all transfers and extensions. The Viking Alruna - Rhine Gateway cruise was anticipated to be equally wonderful. This time, we encouraged another two couples, friends and family, to join us on the ...

I wish we would have spent more time in the departure city along with more time in the debark city, these are 2 cities that we really wanted to explore, next time we would book the the excursion before and after the cruise, this is something we learned after we booked our cruise. The service was great, we had the best bartenders ever, they remember everything we drank, we would recommend getting ...
