Our cruise on the Viking Idi fulfilled a "bucket list" item and did so in extraordinary fashion, The trip down the Rhine, Main and Moselle highlighted stunning scenery. If you want castles, this voyage delivers them in spectacular fashion. We arrived a few days early to Prague in order to explore on our own. Prague is a terrific city. Youthful and vibrant. The hotel Viking selected in Prague was ...

We chose the cruise because of the time spent in Paris and Prague. But the worst thing about this cruise is the itinerary in between those 2 cities. This cruise is our 70th cruise including several river cruises. That context gives us an often different perspective from most cruisers. We have been on almost all the cruise lines at one time or another. Hence, we do not automatically feel the ...

The cruise was exceptional with a wonderful ship manned by an enthusiastic crew. The included tours were informative and provided enough information for self-exploration after the walking tours. It was great to tour Zurich on your own to seek out areas of interest and great places to dine. The Alps tour was a fun filled day to see the quintessential Alps from mountain lakes, wood carving, snow ...

Originally, we booked this second Viking cruise for my hubby's retirement cruise! But with the state of the world ... we were postponed & postponed ... but it all worked out perfectly anyways! The crew of the Idi was so perfectly welcoming and the boat was extremely safe & clean! We were all required a vaccination, masks were required & everyone was tested daily ... all of the tours were very ...

We had thought about a Viking Cruise for several years and when A brochure came in the mail and we decided it was time. Our cruise was from Basel Switzerland to Amsterdam. The crew of the Idi was absolutely wonderful. In a day, most staff had learned our names. The service was superb, as was the food. The included shore excursions were all very well run and interesting. The activities director ...

My husband had never been to Paris and I had never been to Prague so Cities of Light was a great choice for us. We had taken a Danube trip on Viking with my parents for their 50th anniversary and were very impressed with the company, the ship, the tours and the food. In comparison, this trip as a bit disappointing. The food was okay, not remarkable. The views, bus drivers and tours were wonderful ...

During October 1-13, my husband and I went on Viking's 13 day (two days traveling) City of Lights tour/cruise. We liked the fact that this seven-day cruise, from Trier Germany on the Moselle river, along the Rhine river to Bamberg Germany on the Main river, included a pre-extension in Paris and a post-extension in Prague. The tour included two nights in Paris and two nights in Prague. Keep in ...

Paris to The Swiss Alps - this was my first river cruise. Chose Viking on its fine reputation and it didn't disappoint. Everything from airport arrival pick up, embarkation, disembarkation, and return to airport went smoothly. The hotels were excellent. Everything about the ship was excellent:, staff, service, amenities, food - couldn't be better. The tour guides on the excursions were ...

My husband and I loved many things about our Viking river cruise. Having under 200 passengers onboard was so much better than 2000! We sat with different folks at meals, so we met many wonderful people. The food, service, cabins, and public areas were exceptional! The evening activities were fun and varied. We loved the cities we visited and the pace of activities was just right.... No being ...
