We enjoyed the Danube River cruise which has been on our to-do list. We have been on Viking cuises before so we were already familiar with the level of services Viking provides. In general we are happy with our experience on Viking Schuman and the services that were provided by its crew throughout the cruise were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the fresh salad avaialbel everyday. On the day we ...

The ports of call and the inexpensive promotional price were the reasons we chose this particular cruise. There were numerous highlights including visiting Wittenberg, Germany the day before Reformation Day! Our Program Director, Marco, was terrific. He was extremely helpful and gregarious! The number of passengers was small as it was a small ship so we were able to get to know each other and ...

I've always wanted to go to Europe. This year was our 25th anniversary, so I bit the bullet and scheduled our cruise. It was the best vacation and the best cruise that we have ever been on. We enjoyed our Caribbean cruise when we took it, but this Viking River Cruise was on another level altogether. It is a much more intimate cruising experience. Our 21 year old daughter went with us and while she ...

We wanted to explore the Elbe River in the eastern part of Germany. We had heard it was unique and were not disappointed in that regard. Because of the history of the region and after the reunification of Germany we wanted to get an accurate accounting of how things are and were in that area. Our guides did not gloss over some difficult times which we much appreciated. The staff as in every ...

Two ships, same river, same cruise

Review for Viking Schumann to Europe - River Cruise

Chosen b/c of my German heritage and historical interest. We experienced both the Fontanne and the Schumann due to low river level. The ships were identical and both crews were superb, but the crew on the Fontanne holds the edge for friendliness, individual attention and the chef seemed to have a bit more pizzazz than the one on the Schumann. Though these were retiring ships from the line, they ...

Small ship, interesting part of Europe and an exceptional value. We traveled on the Clara Schumann during her last summer in service. The cabin and beds were small but they were well appointed. Our program director, Stephen Guy was outstanding, very attentive and possessing a Broadway quality singing voice if things got slow in the evening Stephen was there to liven things up. While the ...

We had been wanting to go to Prague and Berlin, as well as do a river cruise, so this was a perfect match! Several couples on the boat were repeat Viking passengers. Those who had done river cruises with other lines said that Viking is the best. We loved the cruise and the tip-top organization that Viking has. As the cruise is all-inclusive, we didn't have to worry about busting the budget with ...

We wanted to see Prague and Berlin thus chose the Elegant Elbe river cruise. We purchased the 2 day Berlin extension and would go back to Berlin. The cruise itinerary exceeded expectations as it was all in former Eastern bloc areas thus very historic (in my lifetime). Viking did a great job with programs / speakers that could provide first hand experience with the Velvet Revolution. ...

This was a long awaited cruise as our booking last year was cancelled due to lack of water in the river. It was well worth waiting for.The ship although one of the older ones in the fleet is immaculate.The staff and crew are excellent, efficient, caring, and friendly. The program of visits is excellent with lots of variety and interest with extremely well informed guides. Some of the visits proved ...

I chose this cruise as it visited parts of Germany that I didn't know very well and places that I wanted to revisit. I had been to Dresden and Meissen in 1992 when both were in a poor state of repair and I wanted to see how they had improved over time. I was also particularly interested in visiting Wittenberg. I chose a river cruise, as I prefer small ships and being able to go ashore every ...
