Grand European Tour

Review for Viking Sky (River) to Europe - River Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Grand European Tour lived up to its name and was grand in every respect. This was our first cruise of any type and our expectations were fully met. The cabin was modest but comfortable. We did not require anything more in a cabin because you spend very little time in it. The crew was excellent from the cabin stewards to the captain. The ship was clean and comfortable. The arranged excursions ...

Since Viking Sky had only 2 more cruises after ours, this will serve more as a review of Viking than of the Sky. The Sky itself was fine although it lacks the bells and whistles of the new longboats. The food was fantastic, certainly comparable to our experience with Celebrity. And the wine was definitely free flowing. We generally got a final refill at the end of dinner to take to the ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We just returned from two weeks on the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers. The Viking Sky is an older ship and in fact is to retire from the fleet at season end. So it doesn't look as bright and shiny when tied up beside newer Viking ships as we were a few times. Nevertheless the crew and staff and food could not have been better. Excellent planning and information on the various excursions was ...

My wife and I had the greatest vacation ever on your Grand European cruise - by the way this was our 1st time on any kind of cruise. We started in Budapest, Hungary which is a must see city. We took a land vacation 7 years ago to Budapest and the improvements they have made there since then is amazing. Next we cruised through Slovakia and saw a country on it's way to really enjoying life. Off to ...

It is two weeks since returning from our Grand European Tour. For some background information, we have been on 15 ocean cruises with 5 different cruise lines, consequently we have a base line of expectations. This was our first River Cruise because: !. River Cruises are two and one half times more expensive than an ocean cruise and 2. We want to be sure we chose the right cruise line after two ...

We traveled Budapest to Amsterdam on August 6-22, 2013 on the Sky. It was a wonderful trip hosted by a wonderful friendly crew. It was a little hot in Budapest and Vienna but Viking was ready with plenty of bottle water on departure and cold towels and smoothies on our return. Viking seemed to be always prepared with contingencies. One point many Grand European Cruise travelers fail to report is ...

Our cruise left Amsterdam on May 29 headed for our final destination of Budapest on June 12. However, after 3 days of cruising our ship, the Viking Sky, was sent to Frankfurt, an unscheduled stop, because the rivers and locks had been closed due to heavy rains and the associated flooding. Viking decided to start busing us to the cities and towns scheduled on the river cruise without asking any of ...

We love big ships, but we took advantage of a discount on this trip since Viking cancelled our trip last year due to the ship not being completed. Hubby was stationed in Belgium and always wanted me to see this part of the world. The cities are lovely and it is always an interesting reminder that life doesn't stop because it's snowing. We Floridians tend to forget that. I bought ear muffs and ...

The program managers and crew had every detail arranged and it all came off without a hitch. Beginning with a four night stay in Paris (we added the pre-cruise extension), through the final two nights in Prague every facet of the trip was enjoyable. The panoramic city tour of Paris is much too brief if you have never been to Paris before. Even though we had been there previously, there are ...

Flying into Paris on Air France we then continued to Nuremberg and upon arrival found both of our luggage did not arrive with us. The flight was arranged through Viking river cruises. We reported our missing luggage which took about 15 min. We looked for the driver Viking had hired only to find out he had left for the ship with passengers whom had arrived on earlier flights. My first tip is to ...
