Our family decided (again) to cruise with Viking for our Christmas holiday. My husband and 2 daughters ages 22 and 21 have been travelling for Christmas and by far our Viking trips have been our favorite holiday vacations. Honestly, out Viking customer service rep recommended Christmas on the Danube, and what a great recommendation it was! The Christmas markets made this cruise exceptional for ...

I was on the December 20, 2022 Yuletide Spirit sailing on the ms Grace from Amsterdam to Brussels. It was an outstanding cruise featuring Winterfest in The Netherlands and Belgium. It wasn’t marketed as a Christmas market cruise, so the focus was a bit different although we did have the opportunity to visit a couple of winter festivals in The Netherlands and a few Christmas festivals and markets ...

We have done 8 Viking River cruise, and have loved all of them, but booked Scenic because it’s sold as a superior more luxury product, but it is not in any way, Viking has better customer service in every way, from bar service to food services to excursions!! We booked the Royal Panorama Suite, and the room was very nice, but the butler service is a complete joke, they say they can do all these ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

When researching our first cruise, we wanted something that was kid friendly, and the first cruise ship that came up was the AmaMagna, and after seeing that they had Christmas Market cruises, we knew this was the one for us to choose. We didn’t know all of the perks offered, but after having cruised AmaWaterways, we will utilize them all in the future. Pros: * The AmaMagna is amazing. Tons ...

Our cruise didn’t start well with all our luggage being lost on route. Three hours at the airport trying to resolve with no luck we exited out to Arrivals to be told by Tui we had missed our transfer. Not prepared to put us in a taxi for the 30min trip to the boat nor call back the shuttle bus to collect us, instead wait 2 further hours for an Edinburgh flight to arrive and we can fit on their ...

This was my 5th cruise with Viking and after 3 years of waiting for the Christmas Market cruise due to cancelations it was finally happening. Such a DISAPPOINTMENT! We did 3 days as a preextension in Prague. It was good. The Art Noveau Hotel was nice. They never did mail out my 2 postcards like they said they would. On the Jarl the disappoints started right away. My sister and brother-in-law ...

This was supposed to be a special trip for us. My mother died this year and it was something that she wanted to do. The cruise director was rude and short when ever you asked a question. Tour guide belittle us when we asked a question We had to walk along way in total darkness to reach the evening Christmas market. Food was terrible at lunch and breakfast. It was good at dinner. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first time on a cruise, and we really enjoyed ourselves! Every aspect was top notch- from Andrew, the program director, to the kitchen, the cabin, the food, and the excursions with the local guides who were very informative. We plan to go on another cruise with Viking again. We prepaid for the excursions and gratuities, which allowed us to space out the cost of the trip. We really ...

We wanted to see the Christmas Markets during Christmas an experience the old world during the winter. All of the markets were outstanding, and we were able to learn so much about each of the cities along the Rhine. Viking goes past the term of customer service. The entire staff were always on top of everything. Our cruise started in Basel, Switzerland, which has three possible docks the ship ...

The trip itinerary and pace was wonderful. The daily excursions with knowledgeable local guides were educational and inspiring. The ships staff was friendly and always ready to serve us. They were a great team. The food was the most delicious we have ever eaten on a cruise. We enjoyed the 24/7 hot chocolate, water, and sweets. The morning exercises and a walk to a mountaintop monastery led by ...
