The optional beer dinner in Cologne.
October Fest in Rudesheim, Germany
Although the chilliest day of our entire trip, seeing the castles when cruising the Rhine was still a wonderful highlight!
At Notre Dam Cathedral in Strasbourg, France. The enormity and architecture of it is something hard to describe until you see it for yourself.

Smooth and luxurious sail

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Viking Mani was a wonderful sail down the Rhine River with an incredible, scenic view. The stateroom was immaculate; it felt as if we had our own personal cleaner. Each stop had an excursion included with educational, informative guides. The historical excursions were a bonus as we later enjoyed the Christmas markets. Safety was ensured. We had the opportunity to take a "business card" ...

This is our second Viking river cruise and third cruise with Viking. We took the Viking Venus above the Arctic Circle on their "In Search of The Northern Lights" cruise last year. Of the three - we have NOT been disappointed! Viking is an amazing cruise ship company that knows how to manage people and keep nearly everyone happy. The crew of the Viking Mani were very polite and sincere ...

We chose this river cruise as it allowed us to experience the German Christmas Markets in Rudesheim, Koblenz, and Cologne. This was our second Viking cruise and was as great as the first one 5 years ago that sailed the Danube. Our stateroom was the Explorer Suite which has a separate living room area from the bedroom. Bathroom had heated floor and large shower. In relative terms for a river ...

The was my and my ladyfriend's first every cruise and it exceed all expectations. I took this August 84 American soccer players and their spouses to play in the O70/75 World Cup in Soccer in Denmark, and know how it is to heard 84 wild cats. So they way Viking did it was to perfection, like introducing the F group for our land excurcions and called in Fabolous - where you assembled the people ...

My partner gets sea-sick in a tea cup. So we chose for our first cruise after 77 years on no cruising with Viking on the Rhine in November/2022 - where we chose a stateroom at the waterline/middle of the barge, and Aase my partner had no problem as we encountered no waves. The state room was well equipped and organized and since travelling in November had no need for balcony. Everything on the ...

We had thought about taking a river cruise and Viking’s anniversary sale provided s great opportunity to try the experience. We were going to Europe anyway and decided to start our trip with a river cruise. We chose the Rhine cruise because of the ports, and love traveling in the fall. We loved having everything taken care of (after pre-planning our excursions), and to be able to unpack for a ...

This was our second Viking River cruise, and it far exceeded our expectations! The onboard experience was spectacular, the crew was amazing, from cabin service to dining room chef. We were particularly impressed with the Lucerne extension. We rode a cog train into the alps, visited a family farm where we saw a four-day old calf, visited a cheese factory where we made our own cheese! Overall ...

We had taken many ocean cruises in the past, but wanted to try the experience of a smaller, more intimate ship. The Mani and her crew did not disappoint! We were very happy with the ports, guides and on ship experience. We took the trip to celebrate our 40th anniversary and the memories, friends we met and ports we visited will be an experience we will treasure. Everything is well planned and ...

We were met at our taxi by Elizabeth, our program director with a big welcome and a porter to take our luggage. We were welcomed to sit in the lounge until lunch was served on the aquavit terrace. The food was beautifully displayed and delicious. Over the week we tried a little of all except the foods always available. Each evening, Elizabeth would give a talk on the next day's events. The ...
