Viking Eir Cruise Review by daviajoy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

We decided on Viking because of their reputation, which they lived up to!

The crew made every effort to make our cruise fantastic. From the moment that we stepped aboard we were treated like honored guests. If we needed anything, all we had to do was ask.

Viking has embarking and disembarking down to a science. It was very organized and ran smoothly.

Our room steward was amazing. She would come in every morning while we were at breakfast and tidy up the room. Every evening, while we were at dinner, she would return and turn down the bed. She kept our bathroom well stocked with toiletries and fresh towels as needed.

The excursions were incredible! We loved hearing the history of whatever town we were in. Then after the tours, we had time to roam on our own.

The best part of our cruise was "Making friends and Memories".

We enjoyed it so much that we have now booked a Viking River Grand European cruise for May, 2020.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 216

Plenty of room. We were really only in the room to sleep and shower.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Walking Tour of Basil. Tour lasted about 2 hours and went through the historic part of the town.


We enjoyed the tour of Heidelberg Castle that included the history.


The bus ride up to the castle was breathtaking. Yes, the steps into the castle are not easy but take your time and it's worth the effort!


Our guide was wonderful. Explained the history of Cologne and pointed out many interesting places which we were able to go back and explore on our own.
