Review for Viking Fontane to Europe - River Cruise

Enjoyed the cruise and crew were really great. Sebastian was informative and very helpful. The chef and servers were friendly, efficient, and would have nothing but great words for all of them. Always service with a smile and asking what could they get you or how could they help you. This was my second Viking River cruise - my first was to Russia Czar about six or so years ago. Tours and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were excited about taking our first cruise on a river plus we wanted to learn more about Eastern Europe and see key cities such as Berlin & Prague. Our one disappointment was to find at the last minute there would not be a short cruise which we had expected, but no cruising due to low water on the Elbe. We were docked at Wittenberg for 4 days and then switched to the sister ship in Dresden for ...

We had not been to Berlin or Prague, and the price was excellent! My husband and I are very interested in history. Each port had such significance to us, and the guides were all very knowledgeable, and were able to give us their perspective of the area and events. They were able to bring alive the events of 70 years ago. The art museums were of particular interest also. Our guide was able ...

We had done a Rhine River Cruise with Viking and thought this would be a nice trip in July with warmer weather that our last trip in November. We started with 3 nights at the Grand Hyatt in Berlin, which was far above our expectations. The Elbe was much quieter than the busy Rhine and we enjoyed much more than the Rhine. It was very relaxing to sit on the top deck and watch the storks, campers ...

This was our fourth Viking cruise and ranks as #1 for us. The trip was a short notice one for us since we received a very attractive deal from Viking. The trip itself went off without a hitch. We especially enjoyed having a night in a 5-star hotel at both the beginning and the end of the cruise and a chance to explore both Prague and Berlin. The ship "Fontane" was what they called a Classic ...

Elbe River with Viking; Not as Good as Advertised

This was our first river cruise. It went on the Elbe River - Berlin to Prague. The average age on this ship was people in their 70's. This, of course, slows down the pace and extent of the tours and limits the activities on the ship. This old ship, with limited facilities, does not represent Viking very well. The only exercise you get is on the land tours, and, as stated, the pace is ...

This advertised Elbe River cruise special vastly exceeded our expectations. The Fontane is an older ship, but it was comfortable and has been very well maintained. It was well suited to the low water conditions that sometimes can make travel difficult along the Elbe. Unlike my last River cruise on the Danube, this trip went perfectly per the plan.The entire crew was so friendly and co-operative ...

Viking had a great price offering for the Elegant Elbe Cruise. We booked this trip with 2 other couples. Viking arranged our flights together. All travel went smoothly and the transfers were right on time. The bus driver from the airport who introduced us to Prague was so interesting right from the start. The tour guide for the city of Prague was excellent. All these pluses before we even got on ...

After avoiding Viking for several years because we could not stand their TV adverts, our minds were changed by the very positive recommendations of several friends. We were not disappointed. The only reason we did not award five stars was the tiny cabin with two single beds, but we were adv ised that this ship s being withdrawn at the ned of the 2016 season. We had the opportunity to wander around ...

We wanted to see eastern Germany, the Elbe River and Prague . The staff on board the ship were very helpful, professional and made for a great cruise. We extended pre cruise in Berlin. It was great. The Berlin Grand Hyatt was awesome. The Viking staff could have been a little more helpful with explaining use of public transportation. The Grand Hyatt was centrally located. We also ...
