Worst cruise in 40 years of cruising

We were totally misled. This ship (Spirit 2) was supposed to cruise Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. The name of the tour needs to be changed to Stop and Dock. We NEVER spent one day cruising. It was advertised with one (1) day at sea and we had NONE.....Zero.....Zilch. We stayed at a dock every night except one where we anchored. There was nothing to see in any of the towns we stopped ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We booked this cruise in Feb. 2021 to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We chose Viking because of the itinerary and the date. We had been on the Rhine River with a different company so thought we'd try Viking this time and couldn't have been happier. Whether or not the cruise would be canceled was questionable up to the days before because of the changing Covid status but Viking kept us ...

Beautiful scenery, food disappointing

We wanted to cruise from Portland and see the river scenery. On this we were not disappointed. The scenery was gorgeous and the ship is beautiful. There are plenty of opportunities to grab beverages and snacks throughout the day, but the food in the dining room left a lot to be desired. Often food arrived barely warm and portions were often small - my husband joked that the prime rib was so thin ...

We accompanied another couple who had chosen this cruise from Memphis to New Orleans. The weekend before our cruise, New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Ida. We called the Monday before our embarkation to find out if the cruise was still on, and if our 2 night extension in New Orleans was still going to happen. We didn't get any answers until late in the afternoon the day before we were due to ...

This was our third Viking.. after the Danube at Christmas (fabulous!) and the Rhine Getaway. We recommend Viking to all friends and family, as the experience is as close to perfect as you can get. From the preplanning and attentive calls when we had questions, to the air travel they handled, it all went smoothly. The trip itself was lovely! We were lucky with great weather the entire week. ...

The American Queen Steamboat Company needs to improve customer service from the company office. The experience on the American Duchess was very good and the crew went out of their way to accommodate. However, the corporate office did not care about their customers concerns about taking the cruise under these conditions and promises made by company representative were not followed up on. We had to ...

The weather was ideal and the AmaSiena and crew helped make this cruise exciting and full of memories. Departing from Basel, Switzerland going through Strasbourg, France, Rudesheim, Germany, Cologne, Germany and ending in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Each port had exciting excursions.The vineyards at Rudesheim were unbelievable and the gondola ride exposed the true beauty of the countryside. Going ...

A memorable four nights on the Seine - Le Havre to Paris

Review for Renoir to France

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had never been on a European river cruise before and chose this one for its brevity, just four nights. We were very happy with our choice and heartily recommend Croisieurope to travelers seeking affordable luxury plus top-flight service. The Renoir was refurbished to a very high standard in 2018 and it shows—comfortable beds, a ship-shape bathroom, lots of clever storage, individual climate ...

We just got off an amazing cruise on the Danube departing from Budapest on August 30 to Vilshofen, Germany, September 6. There were 32 passengers with 34 staff. The cruise disembarking September 6 only had 37 passengers. And, the two cruises prior to ours had 30-something and 74 passengers respectively. Here are some observations: 1. Hungry required a PCR test to enter by air. No one asked to ...
