First Post Pandemic Cruise
"While we love Viking and have done many river and ocean cruises, it appears that the pandemic "rocked" them, the same as so many places all over the world.The Viking Cruise Director was based at our hotel, so any questions could be answered...."Read More

We hadn't been to Europe, and were traveling with elderly parents. We chose the "Paris to the Swiss Alps" cruise because it offered the opportunity to visit 4 countries, and the flexibility to extend our stay to tour the beaches of Normandy. We loved everything about it. The stateroom was larger than ones we've had on ocean cruises. The crew (from the captain to the room stewards) were very ...

The food was wonderful!!! We had entertainment almost every night plus we had a wonderful gentleman playing the piano! And he made the evening fun!!! Our stateroom was very nice and exceptionally clean. Our ...

After a week they felt like family.Local cuisine was great. Top shelf liquor. Spirit package was a great deal. I felt like I was stealing.Knowledgeable tour guides. Immaculately cleaned boat. Everywhere.Always informed ...

This is a third cruise with Viking, first pandemic cruise. 1) Paris hotel at the start of the tour was brand new, beautiful, large rooms, and perfect location. Day 1 breakfast was chaotic - obviously was not ready for 150 passengers descending on them at the same time. Some passengers had to do without to make it on time for the tour. Day 2 was an improvement. 2) Cruise - the staff, as ...

We are returning to this area after 50 years. It hasn't changed. Whether driving or floating on the river Rhine and Mosel it is beautiful. The trip overall was fantastic. The service was excellent. The accommodations were relaxing. We have traveled the Viking oceans and found everything top-notch. This river cruise did not meet our expectations in two categories; tour and dinners. We ...

Outstanding Viking river cruise on the Moselle and Rhine Rivers. Exciting to see many castles on the rivers and the highlight of the trip was visiting the Alps by train. Viking staff and crew take care of any and all luggage transfers and dining experience and meals on board ship delicious and coordinated with areas of Europe being visited. Included tours were very informative and guided by ...

Viking took care of us from the moment we arrived until departure. The customer service, Program Manager and overall construct of the itinerary was outanding, Viking Program Manager Bojan was an amazing resource from start to finish. He was always there for guidance, to answer questions and to chat. I really like the construct of the itinerary from Switzerland to Germany to Paris. The ...

Friends chose this route, and we joined them for our first river cruise. Viking was aware that river levels were low, and that we would likely not complete the cruise, but let us know so late that we couldn't explore the option of cancelling. Cruising the Mosel River the first 3 days was gorgeous and we really enjoyed it. The Rhine was too low to cruise, so we went to 2 days of shores ...

We wanted to see Paris and visit Switzerland. This cruise crossed both items off our bucket lists, but made us longing for more in each place. And we really enjoyed our trip down the Rhine, too. Viking did an excellent job of handling the low river conditions on the Rhine. We 'swapped' ships with one coming up river in the middle of the cruise. We had the same cabin and same cruise director on ...

The flight into Paris was arranged poorly, so we arrived at 10:30pm. Our friends from the same city arrived 12 hours earlier on their flight, also arranged through Viking. The next day was jet lag and a bad included tour of Paris. We should have explored on our own. Boarding the boat was better. Check-in was effortless, and the small group felt more friendly. Rooms were quite nice and ...
