We were so fortunate to vacation on the Viking Einar. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Basel to our departure in Amsterdam we were treated as royalty. Every member of the staff was excellent. It was the norm for staff members to greet us with a smile and a hello. The cruise director was excellent. She was always prepared and saw to it that all the passengers were having a ...

First river cruise- Easy on and off ship. We were let out right on the edge (or sometimes the middle) of a historic town. Amsterdam was incredible and the hotel was centrally located. Our cruise director ( Anna) was wonderful. She helped me the minute I arrived on the ship. Also I enjoyed the trivia contest (btw, my team won), the question were designed well. Thank you for not cancelling ...

From my first call regarding this cruise with Masha Givelber ( who was fantastic through the whole process ) this cruise was everything I had hoped for and more. It was my very first cruise and I can’t see taking any other cruise line. The website video showing the ships public areas was spot on. The staff were beyond AMAZING and you want for nothing. Check in was extremely easy ( of course I was ...

We have never cruised before because of getting seasick. When our travel agent told us about Viking we said sure. We found everything about Viking to be superb. From the moment we arrived at the Einar in Basel till the time we departed in Amsterdam we had nothing less than an exceptional time. It started with the curbside drop-off of our luggage and ended with our luggage being taken to the ...

My younger sister researched and suggested my husband and I join in. Glad we did as our brother, sister-in-law and other sister and brother-in-law did too. Plus 3 other couples who are friends. This was the first time we all travelled together. Amazing that all of our schedules meshed to go on the adventure. The itinerary allowed everyone to venture and do what they wanted. It was fun to ...

It was our 50th anniversary and wanted to do something special. From the moment I called Viking's travel agent, Esteban,things went smoothly. He patiently answered all my questions and set up the trip. The flights went well and we were picked up and taken to the ship, where we were warmly welcomed.There was a delicious lunch waiting for us and we nearly instantly started getting acquainted with ...

My wife and I traveled with another couple. We chose the cruise because of the itinerary and because we were very happy with a previous Viking Cruise. The itinerary was excellent, though not as good as the Danube Waltz because it had more cities. Before we set sail in Basel, Viking provided a tour of the city that we didn't expect. That was a nice addition. We liked the included tours and the ...

This was the first cruise for us . Right from the start the Viking crew were there to attend to us. They handled our luggage from curbside and made sure it was delivered to our cabin. We found our cabin immaculate and well appointed. The meals for the next eight days were of excellent quality. There was not one we didn’t enjoy. The staff never kept us waiting for any of our needs. They were always ...

We had heard from friends who went on this particular cruise. We searched other cruise lines but felt for a first cruise this was perfect for us. Viking handled everything from the time we got off the plane until we were dropped at the airport. We were treated like valued guests. Everything from cool cloths at the end of an excursion to the bartender knowing us by drink! We especially enjoyed our ...

I was a last minute replacement as my friends husband was unable to travel for health reasons. While I had always wanted to go on a Viking Cruise, it had just never materialize. After my first experience, I have now convinced my parents and husband to go on a Viking River Cruise (booked and schedule on the Danube.) First impressions are important and Viking did not disappoint. From the ...
