Luxury River Cruising at its Finest!!!

Review for American Harmony to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We sailed on The Columbia & Snake river on American Harmony!! From the minute we arrived at the ship the deck crew met and carried our luggage directly to our stateroom, no waiting. Unpacking when well with ample storage space and closet. Each stateroom comes with a balcony, two chairs and a table. The crew was outstanding, from John Moretta the Hotel General Manager (who we had the privilege ...

Exotic Journey on a Beautiful Ship

Review for Viking Osiris to Middle East

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because seeing Egypt was on my husband's "bucket list" and because close friends who have traveled with Viking before invited us. We made our reservations in the depths of the pandemic - a hopeful and optimistic gesture toward the future. We were not disappointed. As Viking newcomers, we knew of Viking's reputation, but experiencing the level of service and excellence ...

Great trip. Captain and hotel manager fantastic. Crew great - Damir, gregg, Christian, Deane stop out. Enrichment lectures great - I lined the short and punchy nature. Did well to find weather holes and calm slots. Entertainment poor - especially the pianist. Little atmosphere created in the lounge. You are not able to book a future cruise discount if you don’t book a specific ...

Overall we were very happy with the cruise. The ship is relatively new. It was clean and modern. We had a balcony with 2 chairs and a table, but did not use it much because the weather was a bit cool. The cabin was spacious and cleaned everyday. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Our Egyptologist Fouad was so knowledgeable, personable, and funny. The ship was split into 3 groups and each had ...

This was my first Viking cruise experience. Many if not most of the passengers were repeat Viking customers and every single one said this was "not up to Viking standards". The ship was quite lovely and comfortable and the senior staff were so gracious and helpful. The room stewards and dining room wait staff however apparently are new and need more experience to come up to the service and ...

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 ...

Magical Time on AmaMagna

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...
