To be honest we chose this cruise because it fit within a time that we were able to go. Reality is we were blown away. Not only by the staff, the shore excursions, the meals, or even the drinks. When you put it all together it was Amazing. We had zero expectations because we had never taken a river cruise before. We have done ocean cruises. We are now definitely river cruise people. I was afraid I ...

This was our first river cruise. We had originally planned for the Danube cruise in May, but with the war we decided to opt for our second choice. Recommendation for all travelers who are planning to have a post trip adventure. I recommend that this be a pre adventure with the turbulence in air travel. Our United flight sat for 3 hours in SFO due to an illness of one of the flight crew. ...

Very well organized, great staff and crew. Every effort was made to make our cruise comfortable and enlightening. Tours were educational and well scripted, some guides were better informed than others but that is to be expected. Food, servings and staff in the dining area were friendly and very accommodating to our needs. Housekeeping was very good also, a few minor snafus that were ...

Our Viking cruise on the Rhine (Amsterdam to Basel) was lovely. Viking provides unmatched service and and accommodations. We did the pre-cruise extension in Amsterdam and Viking handled our delay due to flights perfectly and had representatives waiting to deliver us to our hotel. The free time in Amsterdam was very nice. We did have a disappointing tour guide on the Viking arranged tour. We ...

I’m a seasoned traveler. I’ve been on several cruises with multiple cruise lines. Each have their pros and many have an abundance of cons. This was my first trip on a Viking ship and I will say I was skeptical upon boarding that they would exceed my expectations. I had read a lot about how great they were, but until I see it, I won’t believe it. Our cruise started on May 15 from Basel to ...

We wanted to take a river cruise and see some of Europe's sights. We were not disappointed. The shore excursions were informative and interesting. The cathedrals were magnificent and beautiful. The gothic architecture was memorable as were the stained glass windows. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and added to the charm of the trip. The crew of the Hlin were top notch in their service ...

We choose this particular cruise as the date aligned with when we wanted to travel, and we loved the areas of Germany that were visited. Even though we had previously visited some of the stops, the Viking excursions showed us new things that we’d previously not experienced. The Hlin crew were very professional, knowledgeable, always accessible and helpful. The onboard food options were delicious ...

Rhine river cruise: We chose this cruise for our 40th wedding anniversary celebration Disappointed that testing for Covid required Everytime we got up in the dining room, they were there with a mask to put on The food was excellent. Also, we were never notified when people tested positive on the boat. I feel it was our right if we had been sitting with them at dining. There was allot ...

This was our first cruise of any kind, delayed two years by the pandemic. We did not book air travel or pre/post cruise extensions with Viking so this review applies solely to the Rhine cruise and Viking's customer service. All experiences with Viking were truly excellent. From the moment we stepped on the boat, everyone we met with Viking made us feel welcome, learned our names and did everything ...

We chose Viking because we had heard wonderful things from friends who had traveled with Viking. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived in Amsterdam Airport, we were met by Viking personnel. I loved not having to worry about all the details that a trip like this involves. We did the extended excursions on both ends of the cruise, which we highly recommend. The hotels and ...
