Viking was recommended by friends who had nothing but great thing to say about their experiences. This was our first Viking cruise, and it certainly won't be our last. In fact, we just booked a Viking Alaskan cruise! The Viking Villi felt like home thanks largely in part to the friendly crew and wonderful friends we made along the way. The meal offerings were extensive, delicious, and always ...

We had planned on this cruise a year ago but because of Covid we delayed it til this fall. It was a great trip. The boat was very nice and the people from Viking were very nice. We met many nice people. The excursions were very good and the guides were fantastic. We only had one excursion we missed because of a delay getting through the locks but we were reimbursed by Viking. We did a pre trip ...

• We had to start on the Mimir in Budapest, as the Vili couldn’t make it due to low water level. We ultimately transferred to the Vili. • No one greeted us onboard on our arrival, in fact, ignored us including the security guard that was too busy on his phone to even check to see if we were guests or stowaways. • Food service on Mimir took over an hour at each dinner after placing order to ...

SUMMARY This was our first river cruise after 25+ ocean cruises and we had heard nothing but good things about Viking. Our river cruise wound up being about 1/3 European bus tour and while I can not fault Viking for low river levels, I can fault them for misleading information in their sales pitches (upper deck of the ship closed to passengers for 5 of the 14 days??? Really???) and how they ...

The ship was so clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and responsive, the food was delicious, the tours and tour guides were so informative and patient, the itinerary was varied and educational as well as fun!

Our travel agent suggested sailing with Viking and he was right. Great cruise line. Food and drinks were really good, the staff was totally engaged with passengers and the shore tours were wonderful. They were constantly cleaning and tested us daily for Covid. Really made us feel safe. The guides in each town were very knowledgeable and fun. Great way to see the towns along the Danube, Main ...

We have continuously heard of very positive experiences with Viking European River Cruises. Add us to the list of extremely satisfied travelers. Their website, reservations, customer service, travel details and logistics to the actual cruise and excursions were near flawless. We have had the opportunity to travel fairly often in our early retirement. Our Viking Grand River Cruise is now number ...

Budapest was my goal and it did not disappoint! Viking offered an itinerary that fit the bill so I invited a few travel buddies to go and we all had a splendid time. As one of my friends said, “Viking takes care of business!” The highlight of the trip other than Budapest arrival at night was the amazing concert in Vienna! Our Program Director David Morgan alerted us to stay awake for the ...

I'd dreamed about this cruise for a long time. After my husband died I decided to do it. Best decision I could have made. Viking has managed COVID issues exceptionally well. We traveled when daily testing was still required, as well as to return to the US. Viking took care of the necessary requirements in about as non-intrusively as possible. Public areas were always clean and stocked, ...

The whole experience was from start to finish 5 stars all the way. The international flights and transportation to/from the airport were wonderful. Almost immediately after boarding the ship and checking in we were able to enjoy lunch and got familiar with the ship. The floors in the bathroom in our room were heated which was delightful. The rooms were spacious and there was plenty of space for ...
