Wow, where to begin. We went on the Viking ship Skirnir. November 28- December 6, 2022. From when we first booked this cruise and until our departure, flights were changed several times (and we had to scurry to arrange upgraded seats each time on our own because “Viking doesn’t handle it”). Our ship was also changed at the last minute. When we got to the airport, we were told our flights were ...

This was our second Viking River Cruise. The Grand European offered many sites to see, in a 15 day period. We enjoyed seeing Amsterdam, Cologne, and Vienna. Those cities were amazing with so much to see and do. The small towns and cities offered many excursions as well. The food on the ship was very good, as was the wine and beer. The Aquavit Terrace service, during lunch and dinner ...

We loved the itinerary of the Grand European Tour. The pace of the cruise was perfect with daily excursions with plenty of time to sit back relax each day. Each excursion that was offered was very enjoyable and offered extra time to spend in the town/city as we needed. The seating for the meals was perfect for meeting new friends. From embarkation to disembarkation, the service of the Viking ...

We had heard so many rave reviews about Viking and this cruise that we had to go. We were totally blown away by the service, the staff, the accommodations, the food and the care and attention to detail every member of the staff and crew showed us. Our meals, crafted by Chef Russell, were amazing. And Chef Russell was very entertaining when describing each night's regional meal. Shout out to ...

A Disappointed trip for the historical low water level

My group with 14 people took our first time river cruise with a friend recommended Viking Company. Here are my opinions below: 1) The water level is too low to sail on the river between Amsterdam, Netherlands and Cologne Germany. So The company used the bus for this section. We have to carry the luggage every day. And the food of lunch and dinner are not satisfied. It's ...

Not 100% of what I expected

We were looking forward to our cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest with Viking. Due to low water, we spent some time on buses. Viking did their best to navigate around the low water, however, they knew this was going to be a problem and we were not advised till after the trip began. Europe was experiencing a heat wave and AC was a must. The ship's AC was only operating at 50%, which made the common ...

Outstanding First Viking Cruise, Grand European Tour Amsterdam to Budapest with Pre-cruise in The Hague

This was my first experience with Viking, although I am a pretty active cruiser or was pre covid, including 2 other river cruise companies. I will cut to the chase. It was outstanding 8/10. 2 points off for crabby pursor, unexciting decor, and first 2 days food was basic at best. The decor is simple, but typical modern euro minimalist. Tranquil relaxing blues and beiges. I did expect something ...

This was a gift cruise from my parents. What an incredible experience. From the initial booking of the cruise to the final leg of our flight, all we can say is that it was so organized and easy. The online site for information and booking our excursions and keeping abreast of our travel information. It all worked so well. The flights were fantastic and once we arrived on the ship, ...

We took the Viking European River Cruise of two weeks during the second week of May. It was excellent in all respects, including the weather. Having taken a Viking Pacific Ocean Cruise of 31 days in January, I was impressed then with the daily Covid-19 testing, the accommodations, activities, and the training of the crew. The same high level of experiences was evident in our river cruise of two ...
