I’ll start by saying that my husband and I did not enjoy our cruise with Viking, this review is really meant to inform and enlighten the traveler before they decide to book a river cruise particularly with Viking. We choose Viking because friends had been on their ocean cruise and found it very enjoyable. We typically cruise Celebrity, which provides a level of luxury we enjoy. We booked everything through Viking and here are the areas we found acceptable:
- air fare and transfers
Here are the areas lacking:
Do not choose an Explorer suite!!!! The suite is over the engine and it’s very noisy at night and shakes violently. My husband and I couldn’t sleep most nights, even with ear plugs. This would go on off and on all night long as we sailed!
