We chose this cruise because we had been on an ocean cruise and wanted to try something smaller, low key, more personalized with a renowned cruise line, which Viking is! We chose this specific cruise because of the itinerary and the ... Read more

Of all the excursions, Gottweig Abby was my favorite. It wasn't overrun with tourists and the views, people and nectarine products were amazing. It was so interesting to hear the history and see the beauty of this place. Although we ... Read more

Let me begin with my overall feeling about Viking, in case you do not read through the entire review: I will never go near Viking again. We did not get anywhere near value for our money; plus, the company has a real attitude about dealing ... Read more

I chose Viking for the service, and that part was certainly not a disappointment. You are treated like royalty, and I like being a princess even if it is just for seven days. The service is even better than on Holland ocean cruises that I ... Read more
