Great cities, fantastic food, colorful and very informed tour guides, and extremely friendly fellow travelers. Only disappointment would be selection of items on german themed dinner night. Optional tour of Schönbrunn Palace had to little free time to explore palace grounds and gardens. This was our first cruise with Viking and we are already recommending it to our traveling friends. We ...

Pre-and post-cruise extensions were the best part of the experience. The bus from Amsterdam to Frankfurt was the worst.

My wife and I did a Grand European Cruise on Viking Cruise line, August 14-28, with a pre-cruise extension in Burges, Belgium (August 11-14) and a post-cruise extension in Prague (August 28-31). Because of water levels, the Rhine was not navigable so we took a bus from Amsterdam to Frankfurt. The pre-and post-cruise extensions were the best part of the experience. The bus from Amsterdam to ...

I had never been to Europe before. I chose Viking due to reputation and marketing information received through the mail. I wanted to devote a minimum of two weeks to this trip to justify the flight time and distance. The Grand European Tour fit the bill. We got to see all of our scheduled stops including a nice unexpected porting and tour of the city of Mainz. However, due to river levels, ...

We chose this cruise because we had been wanting to visit historically rich and architecturally significant landmarks of Europe while traveling in a way that kept us as safe as possible from covid. Viking provided all of those things in a very big way on their Grand European cruise! There we many pleasant surprises along the way beginning with being greeted upon our arrival at the airport ...

We had taken a 1-week Viking cruise up the Rhine River previously. So we had a good idea of what to expect. But this trip was so much more than we could have expected. The ship was luxurious and comfortable. Food superb. Crew attentive and eager to please. Cruise Director Richie was a delight. In each town that we docked, an included excursion provided an excellent tour and source of ...

Germany was on our bucket list and this cruise gave us a chance to see multiple cities and revisit Amsterdam. We were initially concerned that we may be to young for something like this (47) but that turned out to be very wrong. We had a Veranda B room and it worked out very well for us. I am not an ocean cruise fan as I do not like large crowds and the constant waiting for everything. River ...

Our Rhine River Getaway had every amenity possible and the added touches of the staff and crew were simply top notch. We cruised in an Explorer Suite from March 27, 2022 to Apr 3, 2022. The food was expertly prepared at each meal. The choices of local cuisine at each port we also so tasty that I tried each one. I also recommend the Silver Spirits Beverage package as it allows for many choices ...

Staff were well trained and had a great attitude to assist us for any and every thing we needed. Cruise Director was excellent in every way, great knowledge, and could roll with the punches as situations changed. Food was very very good, generous servings and imaginative. There were some guests who left because they tested positive, but it was very low-key and not discussed. We were still in ...

We had previously sailed from Bucharest to Budapest on Viking and we wanted to complete the cruise by sailing from Budapest to Amsterdam. We delayed for a year because of COVID. The Ports of Call were all interesting. and Vikings included tours were fine. The tour guides were knowledgeable. We were tested for COVID daily, Thus was not an issue and gave one a sense of security. The ship was ...

Best value for the length of trip. Food was amazing. Staff was incredible. Coming took care of us from the moment we arrived in Budapest to the airport in Amsterdam. We then linked another Viking cruise, Paris to Normandy, and the transfer was seamless. Viking did an incredible job. This was our first river cruise, so we wanted to make the best of our travel time. Linking the two ...
