  3. Viking Herja
Our previous experience with Viking Cruises has been exceptional. So naturally, Viking was our only consideration when we decided to take a Rhine cruise. From the beginning of booking the cruise to stepping onboard the Viking reps left no detail unattended, answered our questions and the web site is easy to navigate. All staff on board were superb, attention to detail, anticipated every need and very welcoming. My husband always wanted to see Marksburg Castle and Colmar. The tour and education exceeded his (our) expectations. The only disappoint was the Black Forest tour. The day was very foggy, rainy which could not be helped. But the stop at the village felt more touristy than Viking quality. Our guide was phenomenal and gave interesting history and facts on the drive. However, having a opportunity to walk on some trails OR meet local farmers, tour a home, etc would have made the visit more impactful. We loved,loved our pre trip in Amsterdam! Wonderful city, people, shirt bike ride and the museums (Anne Frank House, Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum). Public trams very easy to navigate the city, plus we enjoyed walking to take in local experiences. We are grateful to have experienced a wonderful visit to Germany, Rhine cruise, new friendships and life long memories.

Exceptional cruise, fascinating sights.Tour guides were superb.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B
Very comfortable, quiet. Daily service was impeccable. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the barges and Rhine go by.
