Review of the Viking River/Bus Cruise Hild, July 12 - July 26, 2022, with Alps pre-tour.
"Would have been lovely on a 75F day, and would have welcome if the tour description had included a 50 minute stop at who knows where on one of the hottest days of the year - this after an already long coach ride.This will be a recap of our recent Viking River trip, with the pre-cruise package, from Zurich to Paris...."Read More

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We had docked in two industrial ports far from the city center when the corporate office decided we could not continue to sail on the Rhine. We sailed back to Strausbourg. We then spent 4 hours or more on 2 separate days riding on a bus to various excursions. We exchanged ships with another group of passengers and continued on the cruise. ...

This will be a recap of our recent Viking River trip, with the pre-cruise package, from Zurich to Paris. The pre-cruise package added Geneva and Zermatt to the itinerary. Being South Florida residents, we opted for the Viking plus Air service to get our preferred direct flights from Miami to Zurich and Paris to Miami. We booked Business class on Swiss Air from Miami (so-so service and rather ...

Set cruise up in 2019 for 2020 based on our 40th anniversary, which was delayed due to covid and subsequent restrictions. We kept trip because we wanted to do this particular trip. WE were ecstatic when trip was on schedule for this year, and the count down on the Viking trip became a reality. Viking is the best and pays attention to all details. Explorer suite accommodations, excursions, meals, ...

We have always wanted to do a trip to the Alps. Combining a River cruise with thee extension to the Alps really appealed to us. We were fortunate to be travelling with friends which really made it so much more fun. If there was a downside, I would say it was the amount of travel by bus and train. Having said that, we saw so much and although a long train ride (6 hours) on the Glacier Express, the ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a trip on the Rhine. The trip balanced well-led excursions and free time. Meals were superb with variety and options. The crew was outstanding - always helpful and friendly. Testing for COVID and on-board protocols were efficient, non-invasive and easily handled. The trip started with 1.5 days in Paris where lunch and dinner were on your own. The Paris ...

Cruising good; hotel accommodations could be more client convenient

Interested in river cruise in Europe that was mostly in region at least one of us hadn’t been before. So the hotel accommodations related to cruise and post-excursion is in general that for the older population that makes up most of Viking’s clients, walk-in showers should be standard, NOT tub/shower combination! Specifically, the faulty internet service at the hotel Pullman Paris Montparnasse was ...

We liked the length of this cruise - long enough to make the 13 hour flight worth it and short enough to leave wanting more. We picked this time of year to be in cities before schools are out and while the rivers are a good height. We also liked the size of the ship - somewhere around 180 capacity. We had fewer due to COVID. Since the COVID regulations that were in effect during our cruise have ...

The region is gorgeous, the wines fantastic, the ship was truly excellent, staff and captain over the top, the best ever. As always there were daily excursions and briefings on the next days port(s). Evening wine tastings were so much fun. Hint: the wineries you go to generally do not ship to the USA. Buy a few bottles of something and take them on board with you to enjoy at dinner or in the ...

We had done a river cruise years ago with Uniworld. It was wonderful but very pricey. We decided to try Viking and were easily just as impressed. The long boats are modern and a great pleasure to cruise on. The ports of call were well worth stopping for. We were treated better than we could have imagined. Even though the airline lost my bag, our leader, James (Papa Bear) took care of everything. ...

We chose Viking because our son and daughter-in-law had cruised with Viking a couple of years ago and they encouraged us to go along with them on this cruise. We were so glad they did. What an amazing cruise. The best cruise experience I have ever had. The service was impeccable and the cruise director was amazing. Can't find enough adjectives to describe all of the fun and service we received. We ...
