Viking Rhein River : Viking Sun (Retired) Cruise Review by Mnp4854
Overall Member Rating
Viking Rhein River
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The major diapointment however was about 20% of our trip was cut short because of hi water levels on the Rhein. Major flooding on all the europiean rivers. Our big cruse vacation of a life time turned into a bus tour.
Obvisouly river conditions are not Vikings fault however, this was no suprise to Viking. Now that we More know about "Cruse Critic" we see similar reviews from over a year ago. Water levels will affect your curise!! We feel Viking in good faith should have communicated this condition to us and given us the option to reschedule or cancel. We felt bad for the people coming aboard for the next cruse, as the flooding was getting worse. Viking did however gives us a 50% discount on another curise and did comp drinks and other services. Not sure we would book with Viking again.
Advice from a first time cruiser: Buyers beware! It's up to you to check river conditions. Don't expect Viking to inform you of conditions and be sure to check cancelation policy before you book your trip. Less
Cabin review: 316
Cabin Number: 316 The rooms were not bad at all. We had previous knowledge that cruise ship cabins are small. The problem is when another ship docks, literally two feet from your balcony that you paid a premium for. The cruise lines all know this, it's standard practice. So be careful when booking and paying for a updated cabin. Also stay away from the rear of the ship, very noisy.
