This was my second Viking cruise, and third river cruise. I would definitely book a Viking cruise again in the future. It is a top-notch experience and allows all of the amenities of a boutique hotel, floating along in the midst of such idyllic landscapes! The crew love their jobs- it is obvious! Service was 100% all day, every day. From our room attendant, to the chef and his crew, to our ...

I had never been on a river cruise and Viking was recommended to me. It was one of the best vacations I've ever taken. The room was beautiful and so comfortable - and felt spacious. The team of Viking staff was amazing. Our room steward was so attentive and always ready to fill any need. The staff in the dining room and lounge was friendly, caring and often anticipated what you wanted/needed. ...

We were 3 couples traveling together. We originally had planned to travel in May 2020 but Covid changed all that - we wound up postponing a second time and finally were able to sail in October. We were issued 125% vouchers which was a very nice gesture from Viking. We were traveling before and after the cruise on our own so we did not use the transfers from the airports. We arrived at the ...

(See my review of our cabin in the section below) Food Three meals a day are served on board. As this is a small boat (less than 200 passengers), there is one seating for the meal. There are no assigned tables, you can eat with whomever you please. We met two other couples early in the cruise and the six of us ate our meals together every day. I noticed that there were many who did this ...

Second river cruise of Vikings France's Finest Itinerary

France's Finest included two cruises, we started in Paris with a cruise on the Seine on the Viking Radgrid. We were not overly impressed with this cruise but hoped the second cruise would be special. But it was not, in fact it wasn't as good as the first. For both cruises we had high expectations that were not met. The Delling is bigger than the Radgrid and it seemed as if the crew struggled ...

This was a combined 2 cruise itinerary preceded by a cruise on the Seine. The ship was our first experience on a longboat although having been on 5 previous river cruises with Viking. The itinerary was outstanding and seamless. The ship was very comfortable with excellent dining options; food was very good with adequate options. The shore excursions went smoothly with outstanding local ...

Our second river tour with Viking. Service, attention to detail, willingness to accommodate wishes. Can’t wait for our third. A shout out to our trip planner and Viking air. They spent a lot of time on the phone back and forth to get us the flights most likely not to cancel. Even though the times were not exactly what we wanted, the three planes over and two back were on time and with no ...

We wanted to try a river cruise (my wife gets seasick) and anyone who we spoke to who had taken a Viking cruise had good things to say about them. This particular cruise was in an area we wanted to visit and fit into the schedule of two other couples who accompanied us. The cruise, its personnel, the food, the accommodations were first-rate. The tours, both the free included ones and the ...

I can't fault a river cruise for many, not for us

The Delling itinerary Rhone/Lyon to Avignon is amazing, although the first 2 nights you are not moving just in Lyon but that is fine as the locks and river scenery gets old pretty quickly. Also not enough rockers etc and folks tend to hog them, so it was great to have a balcony and watch the people go by. Each port was great, and each four escort was great, Suzie the mistress of ceremonies was ...

This was our 2nd Viking cruise, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Viking always impresses with the number of free and optional shore excursions, learning and cultural experiences. We really feel like we get our money's worth for an 8-day cruise. The food was very good; one or two meals were so-so, but the rest were memorable. I really enjoy the European breakfast buffet and cook-to-order breakfast ...
