We have continuously heard of very positive experiences with Viking European River Cruises. Add us to the list of extremely satisfied travelers. Their website, reservations, customer service, travel details and logistics to the actual cruise and excursions were near flawless. We have had the opportunity to travel fairly often in our early retirement. Our Viking Grand River Cruise is now number one on our favorites - with all other cruises and trips being wonderful. This was all we could ask for!
The ship was also exceptionally clean, well-attended and attractive. The crew seems just a slight step above all the others, were friendly, provided excellent service and attentive. The food was outstanding. Good variety and options, impressive presentation and taste. Reasonable portions with options for more. Really good!!!
The excursions were all informative and enjoyable with quality guides. We paid for many optional excursions which were excellent, a little pricey, but very interesting. The entire cruise experience was outstanding! We highly recommend Viking and plan to travel with them again.
Our cabin was on the bottom deck with a porthole type window at water level. The view upstairs would have been nice but we were well satisfied, considering the considerable price differences. The room was immaculate, nicely appointed and well attended. It was tight but functional and was the same size as the cabins with a view. There is not room for chair, but it worked. We have zero complaints or concerns and were please with the appearance and function on all aspects.
