Paid for ultra luxury, got a nice 3 star experience. On the plus side, clean ship, pleasant hardworking staff, plenty to eat and drink. On the negative side, not enough staff to offer a 5 star cruise, food tried to present as ostentatious but failed, wines local and uninspiring. Enhanced experiences very nice, but other trips disappointing. Onboard entertainment less than one would expect for the price and claimed luxury standards. Cruise Director comes in for critism as a poor communicator, inefficient and with a sense of humour that could be interpreted as irritating by many. Showed no interest or follow up in those who had been taken unwell. My wife was taken unwell on an outing and he just pointed us to get ourselves back to the ship, with no follow up her wellbeing. We do not feel that we got the ultra luxury experience that we paid for. Read Less

Changed from a Viking to the Crystal Mozart , mostly due to additional stops along the way but also Crystals reputation at sea. In fairness, this sailing was only the 6th time the river cruise has sailed. We were in a French balcony, room was beyond small. Had two passengers and needed the bed split. All the furniture is mounted, so this was no easy task. Made it so you couldn't open the closet, which itself is only 2 feet. There is little to know storage for a 10 day voyage and no storage or counter space in the bathroom. Although wonderfully decorated, very poor design. We requested a cabin change or even willing to purchase a second, but the ship was sold out. Thought the cruise and getting to know passengers, this was a complaint of most passengers we came across, and we were the only ones not traveling a husband and wife. In short, all the furniture is too oversized for the room. Food was exceptional, bar staff and spa were wonderful as well. Entertainment was the best! (Shout out to Mark who made every night more and more enjoyable with your witty humor and exceptional piano playing). Excursion, is another story. Hours on a bus each day only to spend a few hours touring a city with little time to explore on your own. My recommendation. Do your homework for every stop, book things outside the options given by the boat. Example, glass blowing tour, hour there, hour back, 40 minute demonstration, 15 minutes to explore a wonderful shop. (Just try to make a purchase and have it shipped home in that amount of time with a language barrier) Culinary tour in Vienna, 20 minute bus ride, walk through several alleys looking at locals restaurants, wine tasting (at 9:30 am, but they give you 5 kinds and bread), then coffee shop and a piece of cake... Not so much culinary involved. Salzburg tour, hour and half each way, and we didn't get the full experience of the "sound of music highlights ", but if I would have done more research, I would have booked through a local tour group, out of our port of call and seen it all with transportation provided. Only last recommendatio for Crystal , have some type of splash pool or misting system on the top deck, just for cooling off on the long sail days. We kept having to run down to the pool in the spa and then back up again. Overall, I think this will be a wonderful cruise once some kinks are ironed out and the learning curve is over. Nothing to keep me from taking another one in the future, and I plan to. Read Less

1. This cruise was booked and paid for in January 2014. January 24, 2014 – to be exact. (I still have the emails.) At that time, the booking number was xxxxxxx. Viking had email addresses for both travelers but only showed my cabin mate's mailing address, even though we made it clear that we were 2 singles traveling together and that we did NOT have the same address. ) At the time of booking, we specified that we wanted twin beds in all accommodations. We were told that the record showed this. I also provided my mailing address, which has not changed since the booking. I continued to receive emails from Viking regarding when final payments were due. 2. Fast-forward to 2016. Information from the Viking website stated that I needed to set up a ‘My Viking Journey’ account. When I attempted to do so, and entered xxxxxxx as my booking number, it was shown as ‘cancelled.’ ????? So I called Viking. I was told that we had been given a new booking number – yyyyyyy. I asked why I didn’t get an email about this. I was told that they only had my cabin mate’s email address on file. REALLY????? When the record was transferred over from xxxxxxx to yyyyyyy., apparently, they didn’t transfer over my email address. So I provided it again. And I provided my mailing address again. I told the representative that all of our accommodations required twin beds; we were two friends traveling together. The representative assured me that this was on the record. I was then able to set up my Viking Journey account. 3. On June 23, I contacted Viking again because I noticed in the Viking Journey account still only had one address. I needed my travel documents mailed TO ME. (I’m attaching a copy of that email.) Imagine my surprise when I finally receive my travel documents mailed to me from my cabin mate. Both sets of documents were mailed to her, so she had to turn around and mail them to me. When she contacted Viking about that, she was told it would cost an additional $50 to send me my documents to a separate address and that ‘policy’ was to mail the documents to the first address on file. Really????? Policy????? I contacted Viking about this, and received an email stating that, for our trouble, we would each receive a $100 shipboard credit (email attached). So when I got to the ship, and used the stateroom TV to look at my cabin mateChris Anderson’s account. The email (attached) clearly stated that EACH traveler would receive a $100 shipboard credit. So I contacted guest services, explained the situation, and was asked ‘do you have documentation?’ Seriously???? I told them to look up the booking number and take care of it. It was resolved. 4. Pre-Oslo extension – We weren’t at the hotel referenced in our travel documents. We never received notification of this. I provided all my travel details to family members for contact in case of an emergency. This resulted in my providing incorrect details. It’s a good thing nothing happened that required my family to contact me, isn’t it? 5. Pre-Oslo extension – in spite of the fact that we contacted Viking multiple times about twin beds, our room didn’t have twin beds. The Viking representative at the Hotel Bristol told me that he worked for a subcontractor and that the hotel was full. First of all, Viking can subcontract all they want, but Viking cannot delegate responsibility. I told him that they could arrange for us to have a room at a different hotel if there wasn’t one available at Hotel Bristol. After multiple phone calls and 4-5 hours, a separate room was miraculously found for my cabin mate. Just another example of how Viking dropped the ball. 6. Pre-Oslo extension – I called Viking to get details about what was included in order to be able to make additional plans for tours and meals. The Viking representative was unable to provide me details about a) what was going to happen on each day of the extension and b) what departure and arrival times were for the train from Oslo to Bergen. I ended up making plans and then having to cancel them once I got to Oslo and Bergen because inadequate information was available up front. It was a hassle. As a result, I ended up on 2 Bergen tours that were identical. Instead of seeing the same things twice, I would have like to use my time doing something that I missed seeing because I didn’t have adequate information in the first place. 7. Based on the information from the Viking website and my travel documents, I brought a 110V curling iron, a stepdown transformer (220V to 110V), and a plug adapter. The Viking Star has more outlets for charging and small appliances than most ships, but still not enough. I have used the stepdown transformer successfully in hotels and on cruises for years. Well, I returned to my stateroom one day early in the cruise, and was handed a piece of paper from housekeeping stating that they were required to report and turn in any heat-producing devices. So down to Guest Services I go. Again – ‘Policy.’ They finally gave me back the curling iron back, but kept the plug adapter and transformer until the end of the cruise. I was not the only guest affected by this; there were multiple people at Guest Services when I went down there. My points are these: 1) If I had been communicated the ‘policy’ and known that stepdown transformers were not allowed, I would have simply plugged my curling iron into one of the 110V outlets and used the plug adapter in the 220V outlet to charge my phone or tablet, which are dual voltage devices. 2) Someone who understands electrical engineering principles needs to write the policy, 3) Policy needs to be clearly communicated on Viking’s website and in the travel documents; it was not. 4) Policy compliance and enforcement is management’s responsibility, not a housekeeping person’s responsibility. Requiring someone who interacts with guests multiple times on a daily basis to do something like this is poor policy. 8. Post-Stockholm extension - I called Viking to get details about what was included in order to be able to make additional plans for tours and meals. The Viking representative was unable to provide me details about what would happen on the bus transfer from the ship to the hotel. The guide on the bus decided that we would stop at the hotel briefly, then take a tour of city hall. Because I didn’t know what was going on ahead of time, I had already arranged and paid for private tours. I luckily was able to access my baggage at the hotel so that I could get what I needed for my private tours. 9. Post-Stockholm extension - in spite of the fact that we contacted Viking multiple times about twin beds, our room didn’t have twin beds. The hotel was able to provide us with another room with twin beds. Just another example of how Viking dropped the ball. 10. I had to contact Viking Cruises for issuance of my air reservations. The flights were ‘reserved, not ticketed.’ I wanted to be sure I kept the reserved flights, so I contacted Viking. I was asked, “Oh, do you want these ticketed?” ????? The reservations were finally ticketed on 6-23-16. But, my United Frequent Flyer number was not entered on my departing flights from Little Rock to Chicago, Chicago to Frankfurt, Frankfurt to Oslo. I had to contact United when I got back to get these miles credited. Again……hassle. I made sure on the return flights that the FF# was on the reservation, but I’m expecting to have to do the same thing within 15 days to get credit for the return flights as well. Ultimately, I guess you get what you inspect, not what you expect. But it seems like a lot of effort was expended just to insure I got what I paid for. When I go on vacation, I like it to be as hassle-free as possible; otherwise, it’s no different from work. Onboard experience: Now I’ll tell you what I liked about the cruise and Viking Star. 1. I loved the ship layout. The common areas were very comfortable and welcoming and abundant. 2. The alcoholic beverage prices were quite reasonable. The gratis wine and beer offerings were excellent; no need to pay to upgrade in order to get something drinkable. 3. The stateroom and bathroom amenities were excellent. The TV information system was very good and easy to use. 4. Food in the World Café – lots of options and very good. I really enjoyed the Chef’s Table and Manfredi’s options and that there was no extra charge to book them. The Dining Room offerings were OK. 5. Embarkation was well-managed. 6. Disembarkation was well-managed. I’ve been on other cruise lines, and disembarkation was a free-for-all; they simply didn’t care what happened to you once you walked down the gangplank off the ship.

Visiting Parts of Europe that i had not visited before sounded very exciting. Unfortunately the cruise up the Danube was not as enjoyable as i had hoped. The food and service on the Freya was excellent, but the view from the boat at some of the stops was disappointing. For example at one of the stops the view from our cabin was a concrete batching plant. Other stops were usually not up to the standard of the first night in Budapest, meaning we usually stopped some distance from the town or city and needed to take a taxi to go into town. Even then the stops were for a short time as the boat was to be moved within a few hours. I also thought that Viking should describe the distance of walks from the bus that picked us up at the boat to the attraction that was the destination in more explicit words. For example, a walking tour described as moderate means different things to different people depending on that persons fitness level. Viking would do better if it said 1/4 of a mile instead of moderate walk for example. One of our tour guides was so engrossed with describing the tour details that i had to interrupt his dialog to point out that an elderly lady in our group was so far behind the group that we had to wait some time before she caught up. I had plans to visit a restaurant in Regensburg with friends for dinner and before that visit the BMW factory. Unfortunately i was told by staff that the boat would be leaving port in the afternoon so I cancelled the BMW factory tour and had lunch in Regensburg. Viking refused to reimburse me for the BMW tour. I could point out other things that Viking could improve but i am tired, I left a similar review while onboard I would be surprised if Viking ever contacted me to follow up my review. All in all a pleasant experience but not worth the money I paid. Read Less

I would actually rate the ship 3-1/2 stars if that were an option. I chose this cruise because we wanted to do the Moselle and Rhine Rivers in one trip. This was the only line i found that offered that combo in August. We have done approx. 15 ocean cruises and one River Cruise (danube) 2 years ago on another cruise line which we liked better overall. We loved the overall itinerary--so glad we included the Moselle, which contained some of our favorite stops (Luxembourg City,& Bernkastel, Germany) The ship was pretty "average"--the cabin was smallish, we couldnt both sit by the sliders to watch--there was only one chair in the cabin. Our bed faced Aft, so it was not enjoyable to watch out the window going backwards. The bed itself was very comfortable, but only super soft pillows were available so i had to sleep in my horseshoe "airplane pillow". The ship should offer at least one firm pillow option. This is a very pricey trip and sleep accommodations are critical. The dining room was too warm on several evenings...the lounge furniture was not very comfortable. Food ranged from good to fair. Dinner options needed to be expanded. Breakfast and lunch options were very good. Service in the dining room was quite slow at times. Some crew members, including our favorite maitre'd left during the cruise (without us knowing) and new servers replaced them. This was disappointing. Why not have staff go on holiday at end of a cruise rather than in the middle? Would like to be able to listen to lectures etc from our cabin. According to the info in the cabin, this was supposed to be doable, but it wasn't. We had to go to the lounge or outside deck. Since we couldn't comfortably watch our progress from the sliders (as previously explained), we tried to watch the" front camera" on our TV. Unfortunately, the "front camera" was never viewable from the TV. (We asked at front desk, but the 2nd method didnt work either). Lastly, we took advantage of morning and afternoon tours whenever offered, but timing was very rushed getting back for lunch between the tours--often only 45 minutes to come in, drop off stuff, go to lunch, bathroom, get gear for afternoon tour...would be nice to have at least an hour or hour & 15 minutes betweem end of one tour and start of next. We would recommend the Moselle -Rhine trip to anyone, but would recommend a different cruise line. Read Less

the grand euorpean cruise began in Ruse and ended in Cologne. The pre cruise extension was 5 days in Romania and were fantastic. A beautiful, but poor country was very clean and the mountain citiy of Brasov is a city I would return to again. Some of the stops had extensive bus rides which now knowing I would avoid in the future. The ship was well run and the crew was exceptional. Evening meals could drag on for two hours but the dinning area at the rear of the ship was an always available buffet. The cabin was well designed and the bed and shower were fine for a guy of 6'6". The big problem I have with Vantage is the post cruise excursion was promoted as three additional nights in Amsterdam. Reading further I noticed it said two nights at the Barbizon Palace. I called Vantage and on the phone that the day they said that when others would be flying back we would in Amsterdam. We ended up with almost a full day and a half in Amsterdam. The new promotion for 2017 now states 2 more nights in Amsterdam and the price is less than the quoted 3 night 2016 extension. I can only say the same as the others who were on this extension that we were misled. Too bad the ship and crew work so hard because their customer service replied to my complaint with the 2 nights is the industry standard bull. They just wanted to get rid of me, not address the fact that there was not three nights in Amsterdam as promoted. If you go with Vantage be certain to question everything they promote and even then as happened to us they lied. Read Less

The pre cruise 3 day stay in Prague, together with Vienna and Budapest were the high points of this, our second river cruise. The views from our Juliette cabin window were magnificent and come highly recommended.The weather was typically very hot but the air conditioning kept us all cool until one evening it broke down for a few hours. Generally however, the facilities onboard were maintained to a high standard. The transfer to Passau from Prague by coach was over 5 hours, having been delayed for an hour when one of our party sadly became ill. Similarly our transfer from the boat at the end of the cruise to Munich Airport by "Imagine Cruising" was rather too long. We lwere required to vacate our cabins by 9.00am, then waited (without further refreshments) in the ships lounge until 11.00am, when we began the transfer to Passau Centre for a walking tour. We then completed the journey to Munich airport at 2.00pm, arriving at 4.00pm for our 8.15 pm BA flight to Heathrow. This river cruise was on Arosa Donna, with an equal number of German and British passengers. Info was delivered in two languages, but translation sometimes less than transparent.The crew were a mix of nationalities, but key posts were filled by German staff. Embarkation, cabin, boat and itinerary were generally good. The food, at best very ordinary.Never the standard we experience on ocean cruises. Afternoon tea is composed of rather plain cakes. Entertainment on board consisted of a very noisy , poorly attended disco every night - until midnight. "Ports of Call" and Excursion information delivered by one very good and one very weak member of staff. Really surprised that in Budapest no evening cruise available, given the beauty that is Budapest at night. Excursions are booked when onboard. The crew, particularly in the restaurant and bars were unusually a rather grumpy, unhelpful bunch, who were rarely seen on the upper sun deck taking orders. Staffing , particularly in the bars , appeared to be a real issue during our Donna cruise and it was never easy to get a drink , without queuing a long time on this " all inclusive" cruise. Similarly the cruise line ARosa / Chef appeared " to struggle" with those, like my wife, with special dietary requirements e.g. Gluten Free. But food dishes on the daily menu did have allergens identified. Overall, although we enjoyed the boat, the cabin, the cruise , the places visited - we would be unlikely to choose ARosa again.

This trip was regrettably not a good fit for our family for so many reasons - first of all, ever see the movie "Out to Sea"? That is a perfect representation of the bombastic, overbearing cruise director - annoying and patronizing personality who was harshly unaccommodating. He shrilly bellowed announcements over the intercom into your stateroom at 7:15am sharp every morning - that could not be overridden, despite him saying they could be. The ship was filled with out of control kids who would run down the hall and on the deck playing tag and hide-and-seek until 10:00pm every night, sounding like a herd of elephants were stampeding over your head. They also turned the very small Jacuzzi into their private wading pool - there was no way we were going to risk getting in that. And if this isn't bad enough, apparently some of the cabin crew had sticky fingers because we lost a very expensive and sentimental necklace, a brand new scarf, and an heirloom hair brush from our stateroom at the end of the trip. Also keep in mind the ship itself is extremely regimented and they heard you like cattle onto buses and give you zero flexibility - it took all the leisure out of the experience. On a positive note, I do want to note the maitre d's, bartenders and some servers in the restaurant were wonderful. Board at your own risk - if any of the above sounds enticing to you, good luck with your holiday. Read Less

This website would not let me put in the correct details! RIVIERA TRAVEL - on the DOURO SPIRIT - from OPORTO. Flying into Lisbon with Easy Jet from Bristol. A nice cruise with plenty of stops visiting interesting places. Interesting meals out and coaches very modern and comfortable. Food not memorable but adequate, free drinks on trips out and cocktails on ship occasionally otherwise pay. Most staff were friendly and polite. However, the cabin was not as spacious as the pictures led to believe and the bathroom could do with a makeover. The dining room was very cramped when the ship was full and there were not enough seats for talks and meetings in the lounge/bar. There was a good tea/coffee station although the mugs were often cracked and chipped. Electric blind in the cabin, together with the air-con had no instructions. The coach trip from Lisbon to Oporto is very long and tedious, ask for an alternative. DO NOT pick a cabin at the rear of the ship, especially on the middle deck. They are over a very noisy generator which never gets switched off. We had a very uncomfortable sleepless week - so be warned! Read Less

My wife and I decided to start our vacation with the Luftner option to visit Prague before our cruise. We arrived at the Luftner selected Prague Hotel and was immediately disappointed that there was no Luftner representative. Instead, the hotel staff told us to read the message taped to the desk in the hall way. The message told us that we would have dinner catered by the hotel later in the day. The next day we would be met by a tour guide to see the sights of Prague. The note also told us to be ready for pickup the following day. Obviously, we (about 19 option takers) were very disappointed that there was no Luftner representative to answer questions about the cruise and excursions. Some of the people were supposed to be pick up at the airport but they had to get there own taxi so they could not resolved this issue. After Prague, we traveled to our ship. Our room was okay and the climate control work efficiently to our satisfaction. The dining area was offen warm and uncomfortable at times. Meals: Came with beverage of your choice including house red or white wine for lunch and dinner Breakfast - buffet with the option to order omelettes or eggs prepared to your liking. No real complaint except it became rather boring. Lunch - salad and soup was buffet style but the entree came separately. Entrees were either a small portion of fish or meat with very little seasoning. Salad and soup were very good but the entree was a hit or miss depending on flavor, dryness, or likeability. Dinner - all came with appetitizer, soup, entree, and dessert. The appetitizer was very small and not typically what Americans find palatable. The entrees were very disappointing. You were lucky if you got 2 - 4 ounces of fish or meat. In addition, the entree side item were usually a meager selection of vegetables. In short, you were finished with the entree in 3 to 5 mountful. Most of the entrees were a miss because of the lack of flavor, dryness or being cold. An example was our last night dinner which was surf and turf. The entree consisted of 1 medium shrimp on 2 ounce piece of fillet mignon. Dessert for the most part were good. Entertainment was provided by a electronic piano player/singer and a female singer. They were average for entertainment and not very memorable. The Hungarian folk dancers on the last day were really good but most of us were downstairs packing. Service - our waiter was simply terrible. Our waiter had a vague knowledge of food we were being served. At times he would have to look at the menu to see what the options were. One example, the menu called a type of fish by a unknown name. When we asked the waiter what type of fish is being serve, he told us at the table it was salmon. When it arrive, we all knew it wasn't salmon. We had to call the Matre de to straighten our entree selections. Another time, the dessert was not appetizing for a few on at the table. I noticed at another table, they has the same problem with dessert and asked for and received ice cream. When we asked our waiter, he told us it was not on the menu. When we pointed to the other table, he got indignant and went to see about getting us ice cream. He never returned so I asked the Matre de and he gave us some ice cream. Our assistant server on the other hand was exceptional! I have to say all the rest of the waiters seemed to be very good with smiles on their face at all times and very helpful so I would say our table was just unlucky. Ports and Shore Excurions - we selected Luftner because of their flexibility in selecting excursions. Most of the excursions were very good like the concert program but a few were mediocre in that we were alway rushed and did not have sufficient time to see or do the thing we would have like to do. We did have one very bad excursion...Vienna at Night. The excursion consisted of a visit to a wine garden to sample a red and white wine. The group was given an hour and 45 minutes to enjoy ourselves. However, the wines were poor quality and the side bread came with unappetizing spreads and it was also a hot and buggy night. After an hour, our group told the tour guide we would like to leave. She tried to call the bus driver but he did not answer his phone so we all walked up and down the street looking at closed shops until the time to leave. The bus driver still did not arrive until 20 minutes after the designated time. The rest of the evening was spent on the bus as the guide pointed out some landmarks. Do not waste your money on this excursion. Do not be pulled in by the enticing write up. In short, my wife and I decided not to go on another river cruse. Hindsight, we should have selected a river cruise catered especially to American. Maybe the food and entertainment would have been better. This cruise line is cheaper but it can nickel and dime you as you pay for extras...wifi, beer, soda, bikes. Read Less

I like to just relax on holiday, so for that reason i like cruises. Unpack once, and meals and activities all become someone else's problem. We couldn't handle another open ocean cruise. No matter how big the ship is, there seems to always be a rolling motion. I don't normally get seasick, but when the person your are with does, it becomes contagious. So this time it was a river cruise. From start to finish, I have never traveled so smoothly. We chose the Paris before add on,and the Prague after. Honestly, book this independently. It was not worth the money Evergreen charged. I booked all my own tours in Paris over the internet and I was very happy with them. ( 2h segway tour of Versailles gardens, 3h segway tour through the center of Paris, 2h group of 6 with own guide through The Louvre) Evergreen chose to cancel the pre-booked Versailles Palace tour the day before it was due to happen. Due to the late notice, my options were reduced to walking up to the entrance through the queue and walking through the palace with a headset. Had I been given a reasonable notice, I could have had the opportunity to organise a private tour. Very unimpressed. Be aware that Evergreen reserves the right to cancel anything, anytime, and does so often. The good, Except by looking out the window, you don't even know if you are moving. Rooms were small but otherwise excellent. Bathrooms were a marvel of space conservation. Public areas were more than adequate. The bad, -The chairs in the cabin are too low. I am 6 foot, and when sitting in the chair at the railing, it is right in the middle of my view. I always found myself sitting high in the chair, or sitting on a pillow. If the chairs were 200mm higher, it would be a vastly improved experience. -The food was adequate but never rose above that. Think RSL fare. Do not expect to be wowed by the offerings. As I said, adequate. -Coffee..........what can I say. The machines were good. The beans were good, But what idiot thought UHT milk was suitable for a boat load of coffee drinking Australians. When the crew were questioned on this ludicrous preposition, I was told twice, that there was no room for the cows on board. Condescending. The boat stopped at a town every day. How hard is it to load fresh milk for coffee? -Tours..........every day we stopped in a quaint old town center. The tours marched off to show us exactly the same things day after day. Why not organise the tour guides to give slightly different talks, which the guests can then choose from? History, architecture. food, scenery, customs, gardens. One example, every day we passes countless vineyards, never a winery tour. - I am 49, I was the youngest guest on board. The average age is about 65 - 70. Expect canes, walkers, wheelchairs. The fastest pace the trip ever achieves is a slow walk. Think about organising your own side tours. The ugly - no ugly, just a bit average, which could be improved quite easily Would I do it again. Yes, but with the experience I have gained, very differently. Much more of my own itinerary. I would smuggle some fresh milk on board. Read Less

This was our fourth river cruise in a row having done the rivers of Europe in past years with Australia Tour co Scenic. This boat was significantly bigger in both people & size(400 pass v 160 pass) with significant differences in onboard dining and entertainment activities. Cabin was of older style and not quite as good as the scenic boats but as we rarely spent time there it wasn't an issue at all. The major two differences were: 1.Dining whilst American fare it was quite good but not upto the standard we had received before.Dining room had less space and had two seatings each evening 2.What was significantly better was the evenings entertainment. The European river boats have no ability to compete here due to space limitations and the AQ s offerings were fantastic.With an excellent nightly floor show supported by daily lectures, late evening club and resident pianist to round out the offering. Shore excursions came in two forms ..... 1.Hop on/off buses operated by the boat at each port of call. 2.Premium -at extra coast, guided adventures at each stop which were very good though a little expensive for what was on offer. Given our previous experiences we were used to having these all included. Being a non drinker I cannot comment on the wine list but others we ate with indicated it was adequate. The service offering by the boat staff was mixed with some good and others average.I did feel it fell off towards then end of our voyage. As an overall view we thoroughly enjoyed the voyage and would recommend it...with an aussie caveat re tipping..just be aware they ( AQ) charge u reguardless. Read Less

We recently returned from a Viking cruise on the Danube. The parts of the cruise planned by Viking are well done. One guide in Budapest was awful but the rest were outstanding. The Best of Budapest optional excursion is expensive but truly worth it. The food is good and the wine/beer at meals is included. Unless you drink A LOT you rarely have to buy anything on board. There's little time outside of meals and an hour or so in the evening. Doing laundry on board is VERY expensive. $2.00 for a pair of underwear or socks. Our luggage was lost by the airline and Viking was indifferent in their response to assisting us getting it returned. The concierge (Darko) on our ship (Viking Aegir) was useless in either retrieving our lost luggage or booking tickets for events in Budapest after the cruise. Viking cruises are wonderful IF everything goes as they've planned and you don't want anything more. We saw other ships on the river and I'm not at all sure what we received was heads above the others. The price certainly is. Read Less

We did a Danube cruise on the Scenic Pearl from Nuremberg to Budapest from 20th to 27th June 16. We were in a Junior Suite. The cost including Business Class fares was £7500 for the two of us. High water levels on the Danube. We were notified before we left that the boat could not make it to Nuremberg because of the high water levels. We were told that we would be bussed to near Passau - about 2.5hrs. As we had gone out early for a weekend in Nuremberg this was no real issue. But for the others on the trip it was as they this meant they either had to miss Nuremberg or face a c 6hr/there and back bus trip. But the more serious issue was whether we would be stuck in Passau for the whole week. A Viking boat had tried to 'escape' only to hit the bridge and had to 'Abandon Ship'. Clearly not advisable! Eventually, they were able to make the ship as low as possible by removing sun shades all the furniture and railings on the sundeck and we made it under the bridge with inches to spare. I can't really criticise Scenic for any of this. But, as ever, communications were in short supply. They did keep us safe. Note this an not uncommon issue with river cruising that must be taken into account. Suite We had a Junior suite. But it was still quite 'compact'. About what you would expect from a 'Regular' suite on a sea cruise. I don't think we would have wanted anything smaller. Beds comfortable. Clean. Well equipped. Just as an aside, a number of cabins two floors below us flooded when a valve blew. They had 3 inches of water in their cabins and, as the boat was full, they were rather stuck. I think it would have ruined our holiday if it had happened to us. I understand the cabins had not dried out as the cruise ended and new occupants arrived. Food The food was a great disappointment. Breakfasts were fine. Buffet lunches missed all the stuff we had been expecting like a 'carving joint of the day', prawns, crab claws etc. Dinners were even more disappointing. We had no 'WOW' meals. Fish was universally overcooked as were the veg. If you want fine dining, Scenic is not for you. Food much better on UniWorld and it bears no comparison to what you would get on Regent or Silver Seas. The Crystal Dining room is more like a canteen. The tables are very close together with inches between the tables for four. The noise level is high and on hot days the air con couldn't cope. Service Generally Eastern European crew. We had 'issues' with our butler who had a real 'attitude' problem. But the rest were great - friendly and efficient. They probably need more staff as drinks service was slow and limited outside the main lounge. There is only one bar which was closed during an exhibition of local dancing. Excursions Generally very good. The perennial problems of guides wanting to fill every moment of a 90min coach trip with talk,talk,talk. But this is not exclusive to Scenic. Best trip was to Melk Abbey. The evening concert at the Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna was top notch in every way. The tour of the Hospital in the Rock in Budapest was fascinating. On the last night we were sailed along the Danube as the buildings were lit up. This was magical. Read Less

We have previously taken the St Petersburg to Moscow river cruise with Viking, a Basle to Cologne cruise with Riviera and the Hurtigruten return trip between Bergen and Kirkeness. We booked the Scenic cruise on the basis of the all inclusive price, the cabin size, itinerary (Amsterdam to Budapest) and the claims about food quality. Although there was plenty to be enjoyed on the trip it did not deliver the increased quality that it should have considering the price level compared with our previous trips. The good bits were the cabin which was spacious and comfortable (although the air conditioning never succeeded in getting the cabin temperature down to the level that we wanted). The balcony was a nice to have but there was actually very little time available to just sit and watch the world go by. The shore trips were too long and too many but there was very little point in staying on board as the boat seemed to be always moored well away from anything on shore that could be explored individually. The trips also seemed very much aimed at an audience that had never seen a building that was more than 50 years old so became very repetitive. The food was not as good as we expected. Breakfast was the best meal and if that standard had been maintained we would have been happy. Lunch was repetitive (pasta dishes almost every day) and dinner varied between quite good and awful (rubber lobster on one night). I suspect that the kitchen was not large enough to produce the variety that they were attempting. One meal that we were offered was in the Italian Restaurant which was pretty good. One of the other guests that we got to know was invited to have dinner with top deck passengers on what was called La Rive (actually a large table within the same dining room as the rest of us) and said that it was very pretentious and not very good. There were a range of short afternoon entertainment sessions which were generally well presented and interesting. They ranged from a string quartet to an oompah band! The lounge area on the ship looked quite tired. The double glazing had blown in at least 6 windows and some of the sofas were starting to look threadbare. On the positive side our butler was very helpful and the Tour Director was excellent. The electronic devices that allowed us to listen to our tour guides worked well but the other facilities that they offered such as details of landmarks along the river were very haphazard and became such an irritation that we just switched them off. If I was booking this trip again I would look much more carefully at alternatives and believe that I could have saved quite a lot of money by paying for drinks and tours that I actually wanted rather than having it all packaged.

My husband and I and another couple just returned from a cruise from Chalone sur Saone to Nice on the Sapphire. This was our first on Scenic but we had cruised with Viking once. This was our friends first river cruise. Due to the high water level our itinerary was disrupted thru no fault of the cruise company. This was supposed to be a luxury cruise! Where to start! The rooms were small as the sun balcony interfered with the width of the room. The bathroom was not as big as was advertised and did not have " flashing lights ". We had to leave the remains of the first bar of soap on the bathroom floor before we got a replacement but otherwise the room was very clean . We could have asked for one but people should be trained to observe what is needed . This is a luxury cruise! The food was average. The portions were so small that 3 bites of a salad and it was gone. There should have been more French dishes and more fresh fruit from the area . The wine was fantastic so we should have had the food to go with it. Most of the staff were wonderful but I think they were understaffed, especially in the dining room. If you stopped someone to ask them for something ,they stopped what they were doing for someone else and did your bidding . A few more staff were needed in the dining room. We talked to a lot of couples that had sailed with Scenic 6 or more times and they were not impressed with the cruise. It was nice to have the cruise all inclusive but it came at a premium price. Would we cruise again with Scenic , no. Read Less

Started in Paris and stops along the way to Normandy and at the end, a transfer to the train for the chunnel to London. The ship was a new ship and we thoroughly enjoyed the window setup and the ship itself with one exception. In many ports, you have to go through another ship to get to your port. I understand that this is normal and unavoidable (I guess). However, we had to go up and down and over to get through the other ship. The stairs were metal and many times, damp. I was told by a member of the staff that this was a flaw of the new ship. Most ships, and we experienced this on another river cruise, you are able to walk directly through one ship to another without all of the stairs. The food was just OK at best. No where near the amount and quality of the big cruise ships. It was difficult to obtain an extra portion or go astray from the menu. At least I was able to do this on Grand Circle. Service was great! Read Less

Just finished the Grand European cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest on Bragi. For the price I expected much more. Staff is great, especially the cruise director, concierge, and other people you may deal with at the front desk. Cabin was clean and attendant was excellent. Dining and shore excursions were not so great. Dining service is slow. Dinner took 1.5 - 2 hours each night. Dining staff seemed to work hard however there didn't seem to be enough of them. Food was way too salty, especially the beef dishes. Beef was always tough. Water glasses were rarely refilled unless you asked. Most shore excursions were walking tours. The bus tours were good but there were only a few. Most tours were walking only and half were not very good. Some guides did not cover much area and babbled on about history of a few things. When I take a walking tour I prefer to learn about as many sites as possible. Most guides got into too much history on a few sites which left less time to see other sites. Would have preferred more bus tour to see as much of each city as possible. Almost half the cruise was on the Main river through Germany. Problem with the Main river are low bridges which means we were not allowed to use the upper deck for almost half the cruise. Read Less

Just completed the Viking River Cruise "Paris to Prague" which includes a river cruise from Trier, Germany to Bamberg, Germany. The Paris to Trier part and the Bamberg to Prague part of the trip are by bus. Trier to Bamberg is along portions of the Moselle, Rhine, and Main rivers. My wife and I booked what we thought would be the vacation of a lifetime. On the Viking ship Odin, we booked a two room suite with small balcony looking forward to amazing views and luxury service. The entire trip was good - but not great. The pros: Nice ship, wonderful service by the Viking employees, good food, Paris and Prague were amazing. Loved the scenery along the Moselle and Rhine. The optional excursion to the charming town of "Rothenburg ob de Tauber" was the best of the cities/towns on the cruise portion. The cons: Way too much use of busses along the river cruise portion, the top "sundeck" was closed for the entire back half of the trip because of low bridges (that's the place you want to be with a glass of wine and taking in the scenery), some of the docking areas were is industrial areas far from the cities/towns centers (ergo the overuse of busses). Viking needs to be more honest with their advertising...this is not a "river cruise", it is a "river and land vacation" (and I'm not talking about the Paris to Trier and the Bamberg to Prague portions)...they use busses at nearly every cruise stop and some of the bus trips are hours long. What my wife and I dreamed would be a vacation of a lifetime turned into a bit of a disappointment...good, but certainly not great. If we wanted to to spend hours and hours on busses, we wouldn't have booked a Viking Cruise. Read Less

Approximately 3 days prior to our river cruise, our group of 20+ received an e-mail from Avalon stating there were going to be big changes to our itinerary due to high water levels & train strike on day we were supposed to take TGV from Paris to Dijon. We were told that we could cancel & get our money back - but we were aleady in France. Instead of 2 hour train ride - we had a six-hour bus ride to Lyon - where the ship was docked. Not Avalon's fault - just part of river cruising. Once we embarked on the ship in Lyon, (our home for 2 1/2 days), the food was was quite good; entertainment was not so good, and the service was excellent. Unfortunately - people started getting sick with something like the stomach flu in middle of the cruise. On the last few days of this cruise, I would estimate that approximately 50% to 60% of the people (and crew) on this river cruise became sick from Norovirus...with intense diarrhea and vomiting. The largest % of people became sick on the last night of the trip; and we had a 3-hour bus ride scheduled to Nice at 9 AM. In complete candor; I felt that Avalon Waterways was very poorly prepared for an event of this type. It seemed that Avalon's top priority was to get us off the ship; and shuffle all of us "sickos" off to the Carllton Hotel in Nice. Out of sight; out of mind. Avalon Waterways has not trained their staff properly / and had no established protocols for a massive norovirus outbreak of this type. No offer to call physicians from Arles for the people who could not get out of bed / no recommendations about hydration / no medications on board. It was shabby treatment of good customers....at best. Avalon Waterways was responsible for getting us all sick; and did not know what to do with us. This failure of planning was Avalon Waterway's fault, in my opinion. Read Less

I chose this cruise because I had always wanted to see the Rhine River. Our travel agent recommended Viking and made most of the arrangements for us. We were on the Viking Ve and left Basel on Friday, April 15 and sailed to Amsterdam. Our embarkation was very smooth. Viking picked us up at the airport in a nice tour bus and took us directly to the boat, handled all our luggage and made everything very easy. We had flown from Atlanta all night and were exhausted when we got to Basel. We were met on the boat by staff with warm, moist towels and taken to the dining room where we were offered coffee and breakfast. All the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was already ready so we were taken there and staff showed us everything in the room, lights, etc. The cabin was clean and very nice.Sitting room was well equipped, the bathroom was a decent size and the veranda was wonderful. The veranda wasn't very big but did hold 2 chairs and a side table. We enjoyed sitting out there during our cruise. The ship wasn't too big which was nice. It was very clean, comfortable and everything was easy to find, and if you couldn't find something, the staff was always there to help. We ate every meal in the dining room. We met two excellent servers our first meal on the ship, Glen and Zoli, and we stayed with them the entire trip. They were very conscientious, great servers and both had great personalities which kept us entertained for all our meals. The food was always good and presentation excellent. If we didn't like something, our servers would happily bring something else for us to try. We enjoyed the omelet making station in the morning. Our least favorite meal was German night. We tried the different foods and the schnapps but not our favorite. My friend and I went to a couple of the game activities at night and enjoyed them. It was a good way to meet new people as there were not a lot of people there. Service on the boat was excellent. We had no complaints about anything of this nature. All we had to do was ask and it was done, from our servers to the young man who cleaned our cabin. We went on all the included excursions and enjoyed them. We did not take any of the optional excursions and as I stated above ate all our meals on the ship. My favorite excursion was the Black Forest trip and also the windmills. It was fun to see the countryside. It was just my friend and I traveling together, no children. Never saw any children on this trip but can't imagine children enjoying this cruise. Mostly older travelers. The disembarkation in Amsterdam went very smoothly. We signed up for the optional 2 days at Hotel Okura in Amsterdam and enjoyed the hotel and city. It would love to go on another Viking Cruise, maybe the Danube next time. Also would love to the Mediterranean cruise to Venice. Read Less

I had read very good reviews about this boat but found I was a little disappointed. It could possibly be that we went at the wrong time of year as the Mekong was very low and getting on and off the boat was an ordeal at times. The crew had to dig out steps in the muddy banks or put cardboard on the damp mud (an accident waiting to happen, gladly I didn't hear of anyone having one). During one excursion we had to disembark from the boat into a sampan and then up a very steep path to shore where unfortunately I pulled a muscle in my calf and was unable to walk. I remained on the sampan until the excursion finished and we returned to the boat. When I mentioned this to the hotel manager she promptly got me an elastic bandage and arranged for me to have a massage at the ships expense, which greatly helped but I was unable to join any excursions the following day. In the brochure free drinks and cocktails were advertised but unfortunately the cocktails were only available on special occasions (Captains Dinner, New Years Eve and final Good bye dinner). The cabins offer a balcony but none of the cabins had one, there was a door which opened onto a shelf which housed the air conditioning unit - there was no room to even get outside. The cabins were extremely dark and the lights had to be on all the time in order for you see around ok. The restaurant catered for all tastes and the staff were always extremely pleasant. The most disappointing for us was that there was no entertainment/quiz/lecture etc after dinner so most people just went to bed out of boredom. Read Less

This was for our honeymoon and we both love Christmas Hence the Christmas Market Tour on Viking. The ship was fine, the staff and excursions were above average. What was not good were the meals. Dinner was close to atrocious. They served a lot of foods that most people were opting out of and even their alternates were not good. I ate the chees plate several times just to have some type of food. The worst, was the dessert. You are in Germany, supposed to have a pastry chef who was introduced and you might as well had been eating nothing because it did not have taste. Because we were there over the holiday itself there were not as many options on land to eat. The few we got we took advantage of and the last night meals were little something or another that were smaller than your finger even if there were seven courses. Also no food was available after we had a shore excursion and they charged for everything if it was not mealtime including ice tea. If you take this cruise try to eat before boarding the ship and bring food with you because they won't have any. Read Less

because the water level was low, we had to transfer half way through the cruise to another boat located on the other side of shallow water. The transfer was excellent The tour director stayed with us on both boats and he was terrific. The boats were essentially identical so the accommodations were the same and good. The Fall time was cold and we couldn't use our veranda because of the chilliness as well as we were locking through the lock system many times when we had down time, usually in the evening. The meals were similar and there was plenty of food and wine. Some geographic variation in the menus was appreciated, although, not as tasty as I had anticipated. The side trips were amazing, lots of walking tours and the guides were unique, informative and entertaining. The extra tours were well worth the extra money. Bus rides were in comfortable buses which were expertly driven, especially the windy, hilly and narrow roads. The staff. Both boat's staff were friendly. The staff on the first boat were well organized, efficient and I am grateful to have had their service. The staff on the second boat were disorganized, did a lot of running around, never could get the dinners out, tables cleared, coffee refilled, desserts got mixed up and a lot of visibly standing around. Housekeeping had to return to finish up something left undone. Both boat staff I repeat were friendly and seemed motivated, just not well led on the second boat: Gefjon. Read Less

This was our 8th Viking River Cruises river experience. If the "Chateaux, Rivers, and Wine" itinerary had been our first Viking river experience we might have come away unimpressed, disappointed, and perhaps not excited about taking other river cruises. We were not alone in our assessment of the cruise. So, if you are doing your first river cruise with any river cruise provider don't choose this itinerary. The ship, crew, and food were absolutely outstanding but the itinerary and scenery along the Gironde, Dordogne, and Garrone rivers left a lot to be desired. Our time on the rivers was actually quite minimal and one sailing had to be cancelled due to adverse tides and water levels that kept us from sailing to Cadillac. The rivers were muddy (not very appealing) thanks to the severe tidal shifts that kept the river stirred up and when we were sailing the scenery was not very special. In contrast to the very scenic Douro, Rhine, Main, Danube, Seine, Elbe, Yangtze, and Sonne these French rivers were pretty blah. Bordeaux is a beautiful old city enjoying a period of renovation and development. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the city. The walk along the river is wonderful and its fun to see so many people enjoying themselves biking, skating, or strolling along the wide concrete path. Many prefer Bordeaux to Paris and it's easy to see why. We spent 2 nights in the city before joining the cruise and that gave us time to get to know our way around and see the old buildings, churches, and gardens. Once onboard, we basically stayed in Bordeaux for 3 days before the ship moved and we took some walking and bus tours around the city, drove to Cadillac for a wine tasting and walkabout, and finally departed for Bourg at 5:30pm, on day 3 of the trip. On day 2 we did get a short evening ride on the Garonne but returned to the Bordeaux pier. Day 4 offered a two hour morning cruise to Libourne for some optional excursions for some while most of the people stuck around for a city walk around Libourne in the late morning and a walking tour of Saint Emilion in the afternoon. While in Saint Emilion the ship returned to Bourg. On day 5 we toured the citadel at Blaye and strolled through a market and that was very nice. That night we took an optional horse-drawn carriage ride though Bourg that included wine tasting. On day 6 we sailed for about 4 hours to Pauillac where we took a wine country tour through the Medoc and Margaux before ending up at Chateau Kirwan for a special dinner prepared by the crew. This was a good day marred only by a loud, obnoxious, foul-mouthed, uncouth woman who made a complete fool of herself on the bus ride back to the ship. After a short ride in the early morning hours of day 7 we returned to Bordeaux for optional excursions or more Bordeaux sightseeing. Our chef, Pascal, and our program director, Lorin, and the entire crew did a great job throughout this cruise and with the itinerary being as dull as it was this was important and saved the trip. There are still a few more rivers we would like to see in Europe and some we'd even like to do again so we'll be sticking with Viking River Cruises in the future. Read Less
