Our least favourite Viking river cruise
"We are an active, retired couple who have been on 8 Viking cruises over the past decade. We were on Viking Beyla for their Prague and the Elegant Elbe cruise in April 2017. We started in Berlin (2 days), then..."Read More

A superb cruise on the River Elbe

We had already done and enjoyed two river cruises with Viking (the Danube; and the river Duoro). Both were extremely well organised. We wanted to see other parts of Europe and were attracted by the idea of the cruise on the river Elbe, starting with 2 days in Prague and concluding with 2 days in Berlin after disembarkation at Wittenberg. Everything about the cruise was excellent. Booking it was ...

Itinerary (2 days in Berlin, 5 day cruise including Wittenburg, Meissen and Dresden, 2 days Prague) appealed to us and didn't disappoint. Viking's cruise environment is (for us) a good mix of levity, entertainment and enrichment led by excellent program director Rik and enhanced by unadvertised extras such as an evening walk in Torgau, a lacemaking demo (and chance to try), a talk from a local ...

We chose this one because we wanted to visit two of the places on the itinerary. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately we had not read the brochure properly and had not realised that the first two and last two nights would be in hotels, in Berlin and Prague respectively. However, that was our fault, not Viking's! In the event, we found the experience in Berlin rather dry, but Prague is a ...

Elegant Elbe was Wonderful

Overall, we had a fantastic time. We chose this cruise initially because it included Berlin which had been on our bucket list for a few years - and it seemed overall like a great value (free air/all inclusive, etc.). We were more than a little reluctant because we had a poor experience on a large cruise ship and vowed we would never take another cruise. Even though we weren't able to actually ...

I went with my mother who is in her 80s and we wanted to end up in her childhood home of Berlin, so the Viking Elbe cruise was perfect for us. This was a lovely way to travel in comfort, style and luxury! The food was absolutely phenomenal! Everything was taken care of and planned for us. We met so many wonderful people, some of whom we are still in touch with over a year later! It was ...

It was actually my friends & travel companions who picked this particular cruise. I was intrigued as it was an areaic never visited nor had I done s river cruise before,just ocean cruises. The size of the boat and being able to have a view of something everyday appealed. The meals were great. We mostly ate in the dining room...just one seating but the choice of tables and dining companions was ...

We are Lutheran and wanted to see Wittenberg. We were met at the Berlin airport by our escort Lisette, who was fantastic, and stayed with us through the land portion of Germany as well as the actual cruise and did not leave us until she turned us over Jana in Prague so Jana could take us through Poland (Krakow and Warsaw). Jana also was fantastic. For us it was just terrific two have two ...
