  3. Viking Herja
We recently returned from our Viking trip down the Rhine River disappointed and exhausted. The trip was chaotic and disjointed due to River levels on the Rhine. Instead of advising us of the extent of the disruption to be expected so we could cancel Viking emailed us several days before departure that we may have changed ships due to low. Water levels but accommodations would be made for our comfort. What was left out of the message was that we would be spending countless hours on busses instead of the river, we would miss several cities on our itinerary and the experience would make us sick. My husband arrived home with pneumonia and a distinct distaste for any more Viking trips. I arrived home thinking thankfully this trip is over. Not a memorable experience for the thousands of dollars we spent and the expectations we had for this trip.

Never again
