A long saga of the last cruise of Viking Alsvin

We took the Paris to the Swiss Alps cruise in reverse from December 11-22, 2019 starting in Zurich. Viking has partnered with Marriott Hotels for accommodation pre- and post-cruise. The Hotel Renaissance is in the Technopark of low-rise buildings, but Tram #4 (blue) one block over runs to the old town. A day pass costs 8 Euro per person. Viking offered an orientation walk of the hotel area at 5:30 ...

Great Itinerary, poor cabin choice

Paris to Prague was a delightful itinerary, and the cruise had a very good price with free airfare. We normally book a veranda suite on Viking river cruises, but the explorer suite price was too good to pass up. In retrospect we should have passed and stayed with a veranda suite. The explorer suite is beautiful, with lots of room and some nice extra perks, but once the ship is underway, the ...

Best Vacation Experience We Have Ever Had. Viking is AMAZING

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Our "Cities of Light" Viking River Cruise from Paris to Prague was the most wonderful vacation experience my wife, our two best friends, and I have ever had. The accommodations aboard ship (Veranda A stateroom) were excellent, and the food onboard the ship was consistently superb. The very best part of our onboard experience, however, were the fantastic crew members we interacted with every day, ...

We just got back from the Cities of Light cruisetour (August 7-18th, Prague to Paris on the Alsvin) and had a great time! This was our second Viking river cruise having gone on the Danube Waltz last summer (Budapest to Prague on the Legend) which we also really enjoyed. I was worried that August would be unbearably hot and crowded. However, we found the crowds quite manageable and the weather ...

City of Lights cruise was great

This cruise was great because we stayed in Paris and had time to see some of the city then we went to Trier Germany and had a tour and then boarded the cruise ship. It was fantastic going along the rivers and seeing the beauty of the countryside. We ended our trip in Prague which was another great place to visit. we were so happy to be able to experience the three country's through Viking. I ...

We choose this cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary and return to Europe after a long absence. We had a great time, met lot's of great people and visited some amazing places. Everything was first class and we can't wait to book our next Viking adventure. I have already highly recommended Viking to many of our friends and would do so in a heartbeat. We loved it! The ship was beautiful, very ...

Terrible waste of money - worst cruise ever

From the start: 1. Corinthian Hotel, Prague - quite a distance from city center, old bed with springs coming though, price for 2-night extension through Viking was $399 per person, price per room through hotel was $100 per night, rude employees, kept requesting toilet paper but ultimately had to take from public WC in lobby. 2. Ship - Booked a balcony room and when our luggage was brought ...

We chose this cruise because the itinerary looked very interesting, and we got to start in Paris and end in Prague. We traveled with another couple. We're all between 50-60 years old and are very active. My husband and I traveled with Avalon a few years ago for the Romantic Rhine cruise and based on that experience, we told our friends we would almost never be on the ship because we would be ...

Just returned from our first cruise with Viking. In all, there were amazing and some disappointing parts to the trip. On the positive, the food was close to the best I have ever had on a cruise. This was our first river cruise but we have cruised with Royal Caribbean, Regent Seven Seas, Disney, and Norwegian. The cabins were nice and our cruise director, Jerome, was hilarious and great at what ...

It was our third trip to Paris but a wonderful introduction to the charms of the Moselle and Rhine, ending with the majesty of the Alps and the pleasant surprise of Zurich. Each of the towns on the Moselle and Rhine was an exciting discovery , with ample time for both provided and personal excursions. Trier, Bernkastel, Cochem were all lovely. Koblenz provided a perfect introduction to the ...
