Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Asia River
  • Cabin Type: Standard Outside Stateroom

Choose Viking for thismcruise because we had previously traveled with them and had an emergency which they handled beautifully. Know they would be able to handle any possible problem that might come up.

Our group leader, Lee, was informed, helpful, so willing to share insights of growing up in the area. For the most part, very good local guides.

Loved the itinerary as we saw villages and off the beaten track areas, local businesses as well as had time to explore the larger cities on our own. Plenty of time for,shopping but not too much. No expensive add on excursions. Had opportunities to eat local foods, excellent onboard and off educational programs on history, culture, etc.

Ship is out of an Agatha Christie novel, beautiful Mahoney, so well cared for. Each cabin had a small outside area. Staff is AMAZING. So well trained, pleasant, willing to,share their experiences and plans.

Excellent food with variety as expected.

Very nice and varied land accommodations.

The only snafu was booking through a third party who did not let us know the problems we would face once we left the Viking itinerary. Got dropped like a hot potatoe, despite all of Lee's efforts. Didn't know we had to reserve our own room for,the first night, didn't know we had to arrange our own transport from airport to hotel by arriving one day early. That really was a mess. Long story.

At the end of the tour we continued o our own, again not transfers, help. Etc. if Viking is not going to provide the transfers for independent add on travel, they should pay for the, or refund that portion of the trip.
