Over the years many of our friends have taken Viking River Cruises and spoke very highly of them. So when we were finally able to take a River Cruise, we went with Viking. We choose the Grand European Cruise because it included stops and tours of many cities that were on our travel "Bucket List". Viking did not disappoint - our cruise was outstanding from arrival to departure. We were impressed with Viking from our first experience at the airport pickup to our final departure. We were very impressed with the entire Viking crew members. The suite room staff, concierge staff, lounge and dining room staffs,chefs, and excursion guides were to a person, friendly, very knowledgeable, and courteous. They made us feel welcomed and responded to all of our requests and needs quickly and completely. Th cruise director was outstanding and her knowledge, enthusiasm, and humor made everyone comfortable and relaxed. We really enjoyed the late afternoon cocktail time in the lounge The lounge was a perfect size for our group and perfect for meeting people and relaxing.The bar tenders and wait staff always made us feel welcome and their service top notch.The dining room was beautiful with a simple elegance that made us feel welcome. The layout of the dining room made it easy to share dinner with all kinds of people. The wait staff was excellent, thorough, efficient and friendly. The food was outstanding and the menu variety perfect. The entire sailing experience is one we will never forget. We will definitely take future Viking River Cruises.

Our experience on the Viking Modi exceeded all of our expectations.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA
The Veranda suite was comfortable, inviting, well laid out, provide ample space for our luggage and clothing and it was a welcoming place to relax and sleep after very busy days. The shower was excellent and the bathroom space very adequate for 2 people.The outside balcony seemed to add extra living space. It was cold and at times rainy so we didn't spend much time on the balcony but we were glad to have it.
