Viking Heimdal Cruise Review by lhasiak

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

Everything on the boat was excellent. The food, the staff and service were top shelf. We stayed in a Veranda Suite. The tours were average but the scenery was not very interesting while cruising, unlike our previous Viking tour from Budapest to Amsterdam. Every place we stopped was over crowded with tourists. At several stops we had to stand in long lines to see the attraction. It was extremely hot most of the week (this was our fault for choosing mid July). On one tour, after walking around the city we were taken the top of a very high site, by a tram, that overlooked the city and river which was very interesting, but it started raining at the top of the hill. The tram took us about 1/3 of the way back to the boat and dumped us off in pouring rain. Only 1 couple had an umbrella so everybody got 'soaked to the bone' walking back to the boat. On our next cruise we will go either early or late in the season, but definitely on Viking.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA 3??

Excellent! We reserved a Veranda A and were upgraded to a Veranda AA! You seldom saw the room staff but the room was always spotless. The bathroom was had very modern fixtures and a large shower. Viking sure knows how to take care of you!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The city was 'wall to wall people' and the temperature was about 100 degrees. Get in line and wait to see the attraction was the order of the day. It would have been a very good tour without the huge crowds.
