Egyptian history in a nutshell

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Viking Osiris

Nameless One
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Viking Osiris is a great Nile River ship, intimate, new, and designed for this service. Take advantage of all optional trips, especially the hot air balloon at dawn over the Valley of the Kings and the trip to Abu Simbel. The days are long, with little down time, but you cover a lot of history. The boat is relatively informal, no need to dress for dinner, etc., as you may be just coming ...

Magical Rhine River Experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Amsterdam the service provided by the Viking “Tialfi” staff was more than we could have hoped for. The program director did a marvelous job of coordinating our excursions so that we made the most of our time in the historic and charming ports of call along the Rhine. The tour guides were very knowledgable and provided a good mix of history and culture ...

One of our most memorable trips ever!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had curtailed travel for the past 3-4 years because of work, COVID, and parental caregiver responsibilities. During this time we achieved an age milestone, retired, and celebrated 40+ years of marriage. We wanted a special way to celebrate all of this so we chose Viking. This was our first Viking cruise and our first trip to this part of Europe. We liked the idea of the river cruise so that we ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

AuD Crew
2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

I absolutely loved my time on the Viking Alruna. This is the second Viking cruise I’ve been on and loved it just as much as the first one (first time with friends instead of family). The staff was amazing, the accommodations and food were great, the stops were fantastic. Special shoutout the BILLY, Alexandra, Van Allen, Laurentiu, Shemy, and Uri. All contributed to our time being enjoyable and ...

Review for a Amazon River Cruise on Aria Amazon

Lux Cruiser 2024
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We decided to take the Aria Amazon after doing the Aqua Mekong cruise on the a Mekong River in Asia. It was an excellent choice and did not disappoint! Aqua Expeditions is consistently nothing short of superb. The service is absolutely top notch — from ensuring that all pax’s personal preferences are met (whether food or other), modern design, attention to detail in providing as many comforts ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Osfrid

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose to go on a river cruise, thinking it would be as advertised—relaxing, immersive, and beautiful scenery along a river. We got a crowded bus tour with a view of the boat next to us 5 nights out of 8. Save your money. The Douro River tour is falsely advertised. It’s up early every day (before 7 am), get on a bus by 8:15 am, go to a location (no time for exploring), get a crowded tour by ...

Our first Viking River Cruises. We Sailed from Basel, Switzerland on the 23d on December 2023 on the Viking Ship Hlin up the Rhine River to Amsterdam. Our Original Viking Sister Ship the Alruna was not available for this River Cruise. Both ships are similar in design and service, and we transition into our A Veranda Stateroom with ease. Several of the Viking Service Staff were present to help ...

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Viva

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I just returned from a 7 nite cruise on the Norwegian Viva. Our balcony room was located on the 9th floor, overlooking an area where other cruisers could use an infiniti pool, sunbathe, walk the ship. We had no privacy when out on the balcony , at all times as other guests were out there as early as 6 am, and until 2 in the am, everyone could see us as well and look into our room so the curtains ...

Classic Christmas Markets: a Lump of Coal

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on River Queen

Lyana F
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

After a wonderful experience with Uniworld’s Burgundy and Provence cruise five years ago I was terribly disappointed in their performance this time around with the Classic Christmas Markets cruise. While I understand that inclement weather conditions are outside anyone’s control, Uniworld did a very poor job of contingency planning. We were provided information as to the status of our itinerary ...
