Extremely Disappointing Grand European Tour

Review for Viking Europe to Europe - River Cruise

If I could provide 0 stars I would, based on Viking’s lack of customer service alone. We were on the 15-Day Grand European Tour on Viking (Eisla ship) in March, 2015 from Budapest to Amsterdam. The staff in general was good, and the tours and food were definitely above average. My extremely negative review centers around the consistent problems we had with our room, the double stacking of ...

We have traveled extensively on ocean cruises. This was our second river cruise and we were very pleased with our experience. The embarkation process was quick and efficient and we were in our cabin within minutes of stepping aboard the Viking Europe. The stateroom was clean comfortable and well organized for the storage of our belongings and luggage. The dining experience was wonderful and ...

It probably compared equally to Seabourn for the quality of service and food (and we loved our Seabourn Croatia cruise). Everything was extremely well organized, air arrangements made by Viking were better priced than anything I could find on my own. When we got to Marseille our luggage took a bit longer to come out so by the time we exited into the arrival hall there was no rep to be found. After ...

Viking Forseti cruise that never left port due to river flooding

Our Viking cruise was to have initiated in Basel, Switzerland Saturday June 1. We flew in early to be able to see Lucerne, Switzerland. The locals in Lucerne said the Rhine was higher than they had seen in twenty years and it was still raining. This probably should have been a tip off for us that maybe there was a problem. My view is Viking should have given us the choice of canceling the river ...

VIKING EUROPE - A DISAPPOINTING VESSEL AND AN AWFUL CRUISE

We booked an 8 day cruise on Viking Europe (in late April 2013), departing from Paris overland to Dijon and thence to Chalon, where we boarded the ship. We were disappointed with our experience from the moment we boarded this ship. The vessel was poorly maintained -- dirty conditions, frayed carpets and general sloppiness everywhere. Viking Europe's crew and hotel staff (with a few notable ...

My youthful 95 year old mother & I were looking forward to Viking's 'Portraits of Southern France', our first river cruise in April, 2013. When we arrived in Lyon, we learned our ship, the Europe, had moved down river to Macon, to avoid being trapped behind a low bridge in Chalon-sur-Soane. What a smart move (thank you) because as the river rose during the week, we also learned the flooding river ...

Our cabin proved to be well-appointed and relatively spacious. As far as we could tell it was also spotlessly clean. Restaurant meals were delightful, well prepared and presented as well as filling even though the European portion sizes appeared small at first until we discovered otherwise. Wait staff in the restaurant were unfailingly pleasant. The only thing that was a bit tedious was the ...

Onboard staff are brilliant but can only work with what they are given. Staff kept everything spotlessly clean. Vessel is ageing and it shows. Cabins (staterooms???) are tiny - bathrooms tinier still. A litany of small complaints (problems?) leaves a bit of a sour taste -small things that build up to spoil what could have been perfect. Shower that did not drain properly - some days it ...

This cruise was way beyond my expectations. Everything was done first class. From the accommodations to the excellent food to the interesting tours that were provided by the cruise line. I loved the small number of passengers. We had a 142 people on ours. This made everything more personal and no lines for anything. Easy access to just about anything you wanted to do. Including the dining ...

This was our third cruise with Viking, and once again they did well. For this cruise we used Viking air with transfers, and were not disappointed with the arrangements. We flew from the US to Brussels, then on to Marseilles. There were about 20 of us that were picked up at the airport, for our ride down to Avignon our starting point for the cruise. Arriving at the boat about 3:30pm, check-in ...
