There were some disappointments for the high price paid.

Review for Viking Embla to Europe - River Cruise

I wanted to go with my friend. i always wanted to tour these countries but a bus tour, checking into a new hotel every night and checking out next morning did not appeal to me. Also all that sitting on a bus would have been painful. The disappointing things were: no wifi for first several days until router replaced, only day in Vienna was a Sunday and all stores were closed. Because of water ...

Ship shabby and tired albeit staff excellent. Entertainment on board low class. Overall cabins noisy. When perusing details prior were never advised deck would be unavailable for substantial period of cruise due to locks. Majority of trip had bad smell in corridors and cabins. Value for money rate 4/5 out of 10. Majestic train trip uncomfortable due to heat and not explained re food and ...

In many ways I hate to give such a critical review because the boat itself, the food and the accommodations were all exceptional, The staff were unbelievable. the the program director, George was wonderful. We marveled at the consistent high level of service they delivered. While the land tours were uneven, they were mostly good and helped you to get a flavor for the region. Night lecture by a ...

My sister-in-law chose the cruise. We had a lowest deck cabin that was small and noisy from the plumbing and the ship's intercom woke us up early in the morning. Other cruises that we have been on, only important information was broadcast in the state room. The double bed was two beds pushed together and the mattresses came apart easily interfering with our comfort. All the staff were ...

My wife and I cruised from Amsterdam to Budapest in August of 2014 and decided to go the opposite direction this year and to visit Prague. We have cruised Viking, Silver Seas, Crystal, and Princess in the last three years. We chose Scenic because their bathrooms had bath tubs, a must so my wife could deal with the pain in her legs after a day of touring. And because they were supposed to be a ...

You start in the Tivoli in Lisbon: Astheticlly a nice hotel. It is missing many high level hotel details. What drove many in our group crazy was that there is no shelf or place to put the soap/shampoo in the shower, leading to a more difficult shower. After a long day of touring, I like to tune into TV, but there were only 2 English speaking channels and they left little to be desired. What ...

We had never been on a river cruise before so maybe our expectations were too high. The really good thing about it was that all the arrangements for getting on and off the boat, excursions etc went like clockwork and the local guides were in general excellent. The tours themselves were variable - some rather boring and created just to fill time. The boat was lovely and clean and modern but we ...

Embarkation at Budapest with little time to see city other than during night cruise. Ship was clean/modern though crowded at main meals and during briefings and entertainment. Cabin was average and well serviced. Staff generally friendly and efficient. Two days of wasted cruising viewing trees at start of trip and long day at end of trip before overlong time in Bucharest Full ship and ...

We chose this cruise because it covered countries that we had not visited yet. Hungary and Croatia were the highlights of the cruise. Romania and Bulgaria were disappointing and we could have skipped them. Some tours were very good and interesting but others were a waste of time. Service aboard the Embla was good as expected since we had already cruised aboard the ship Odin and consider it ...

My husband and I booked the Splendors of Italy cruise which has pre and post-cruise extensions in Milan, Florence, and Rome. We made the choice based on the exceptional/very good reviews of others and the itinerary. We are experienced with ocean cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We are not wealthy, but we splurged for a suite (#411 which was 1 of only 4). Overall, while the ...
