This was our first river cruise. We did a 2 day pre-cruise stay in Amsterdam. The Hotel Pestana Riverside was our hotel arranged by Viking. The hotel was nice, and a good breakfast buffet was included. The services provided by Viking are great. All of the ship staff were great. Gavin, the Vidar Program Director, was excellent. The food on the Vidar was very good, and I really enjoyed the ...

My aunt and I wanted to go to Switzerland to see the Alps after much research our travel agent recommended a Viking River Cruise. I’ve always wanted to visit Amsterdam/Holland to see the windmills so the Rhine Getaway seemed like the opportunity to do two countries that we both wanted to visit. We arrived in Amsterdam and were met by a Viking Representative and taken to the Viking Vidar. Our ...

This is our second Viking River Cruise -- Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine River. Our mid-April weather was perfect -- in the 70's during the day and no rain. The food was wonderful, the crew was terrific (knew our names on the first day!) and the excursions were perect The narration by our Program Director, Diana, was great while we were cruising down the Rhine looking at all the castles -- ...

This river cruise was a great experience! I really enjoyed the atmosphere. It was a small boat so we were able to meet more people and form better relationships with those around us. The onboard entertainment was better than I had expected. There was great music and activities on board during sailing days and as well as other days. The enrichment programs were very well done and gave us a greater ...

Was on our bucket list and was so impressed with all aspects of the cruise, staff, food, service and the excursions. One the nice things about the Viking River Cruise was that it had only 190 passengers so that you got to meet a lot of new people and it made it more friendly. Everyday brought a new adventure and the crew members always had smiles on their faces. They bent over backwards to be ...

This was our first river trip and it was recommended to us by AAA. The air travel was on time and the tourist seating was comfortable and adequate. Our arrival time in Basel did not allow extra time to spend time in Basel, and we were excited to explore the ship and our cabin. Arrival on the ship was gracious, friendly and efficient, and we would learn that this is the way of the Viking Vidar. ...

Excellent food, fascinating tours, and the river views always worth watching. Tour director made everything better. Highly recommend this river cruise. Might do it again. Always try to have the chef's specials. They are outstanding. Didn't arrive in time to explore our departure city, Amsterdam. Wish we did. The windmills were a highlight of the trip. Take the boat to the windmills ...

The Rhine Getaway cruise was absolutely wonderful. One of the reasons we love RIver Cruises is because we get to see parts of countries in ways we might never, just flying into a city. Cruising the Rhine and seeing all the castles was very exciting. From our Pub Crawl in Colonge, our visit to wineries and walks in the Vinyards in France, the quaint and beautiful village of Colmar to our Mt.Pilatus ...

We were looking for a cruise that would cater towards adults, provide an opportunity for cultural immersion, and not nickel and dime us every time we wanted to do something. Our Viking cruise met all of our objectives and then some. The staff was amazing and, by the end of the week, we were sad to say goodbye to them. We made new friends on the ship, enjoyed unbelievable cuisine (Chef Karl was a ...
