Book on a cheaper line; not worth the price despite all the hype!

Review for Viking Tor to Europe - River Cruise

I have done at least 8 higher end cruises and had come to expect you get what you pay for. Not on Viking, so save your dollars and book on a cheaper line. I booked for the Romantic Danube on the longship Tor in June of 2015. For the $$$$ spent, I expected above average cruise line food, attention to detail and amenities. What I actually got was mediocre food that was "re-invented" the next ...

Not value for money

After having done nearly 20 ocean cruises, and hearing so much praise about river cruising we thought we would enjoy an Amsterdam-Budapest river cruise. We booked APT Travelmarvel. What a disappointment. Overall it was disappointing and definitely not value for money, although the scenery was interesting and the same as other ships experienced. The cabin was very adequate with floor to ceiling ...

Disappointing

The cruise of the St. Lawrence River with the St. Lawrence Cruise Lines aboard the Canadian Empress was very disappointing. This is not an inexpensive cruise and one would expect first class service. However the opposite was true. The ship is too old and is beset with mechanical issues the largest of which is the ship's inability to deal with sewage. The boat reeked of sewage and the night ...

We did a six night cruise on the Canadian Empress from Quebec City to Kingston. While there were a few positive aspects, notably very good food and evening entertainment, overall this cruise did not come anywhere close to meeting our expectations. Other reviewers have commented on the small cabins, which is absolutely the case but we could have lived with that. However, we felt that the main ...

We wanted to have a nice relaxing cruise together with our elderly parents. They are unable to leave Canada because of health reasons. We know that the St Lawrence Seaway is beautiful so it was a great idea. Unfortunately, there were many disappointments: the boat is very old and not maintained. While we were on the boat the motor and generator were both having problems, The staff worked ...

We booked through a UK agent, knowing the line was French owned/operated, but believing their statements that announcements (at the least) were in English, too. Croisieurope is also advertising on US TV so one assumes they want American customers. We were almost left behind at the hotel we had to use for two days (river Tisza was too low to board in Tokaj, so spent two days in Debrescen hotel ...

This being our 42st cruise and 5th riverboat voyage, we are very fortunate to have many experiences from with which to compare our latest cruise on Viking's Grand European Tour. On the very positive side, we met several wonder couples, enjoyed diverse ports, and were appreciative of the exceptional service and demeanor of the staff. However, there were many misrepresentations of what was ...

Age 80s

First and Worst Problem , we were to meet the ship in amsterdam for the cruise to basel. Our itinerary gave us 2 phone numbers, one for the ship and one for the london office. So that we could find out where the ship was docked. Myself and our hotel concierge telephoned the ship nine times and got no response, on the last occasion the telephone was picked up and replaced on the cradle without ...

Review for Scenic Tsar to Russia River

Age 60s

In Australia, we were happy to pay the $11,000 per person (excluding airfares) based on the fact that everything you could possibly need or want on tour was included in the tour price - "a five star, once in a lifetime luxurious experience!" is what we were sold. This was supported by advertising propaganda provided to our travel agent, inserts in their Scenic Russia brochure and on-line ...

We have just completed an APT 8 day enchanting Rhine cruise and it was very ordinary from and activity and tour perspective, the ship, crew, food and cabins were all excellent however the cruising and on shore activities were badly organised and managed. Don't believe all of the marketing materials on these cruises as you only have about 2 days of good cruising and the rest is industrial and ...
