Viking Cruise Reviews

Supposedly handicapped person, when nobody was around (except the photographer).
When the Program Director spends three full days of the cruise fawning over a supposedly handicapped person (later proven not), the rest of the passengers suffer.
If you don't care about your job, and want to show the passengers in the Explorer Suite, this is the way.
Viking Night Security. Asleep at the wheel.

Viking Ingvi Danube Waltz Sept. 2021

Review for Viking Ingvi to Europe - All

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 ...

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. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Boat was good and clean. Food was good, many different choices. Most employees nice and helpful. Activities. DO NOT GO IF YOU CANT WALK FAR. Everything is a good distance away, even to get on a bus..the joke on the bus was (everyone told us 15 minutes). Bus rides and walking were way longer than that. No snacks after dinner….Not even at the bar… COVID test had to be at the desk ...

When my wife's mother died 5 days before our river cruise, Viking told me the “Risk Free Guarantee” they gave me at booking no longer applied after they canceled our June trip—now we would simply lose all we paid. Rather than lose everything, I decided to go without my wife. Then Viking called the night before I left to say I owed $6,971 more for a single supplement—despite having already ...

Before I start, I’m sorry this is a long review! My sister and I have travelled extensively on European rivers but for various reasons not with Viking until this year. We had planned this trip for several years but illness and a pandemic got in the way. We were looking forward to our river Douro experience on Viking Helgrim. The cruise had been cancelled and rearranged several times, but ...

Originally, we booked this second Viking cruise for my hubby's retirement cruise! But with the state of the world ... we were postponed & postponed ... but it all worked out perfectly anyways! The crew of the Idi was so perfectly welcoming and the boat was extremely safe & clean! We were all required a vaccination, masks were required & everyone was tested daily ... all of the tours were very ...

Did not know what to expect with Viking. Very pleasantly suprised. Our inital docking in Paris had a great view of the Eifel Tower, and as it got dark out, it was quite a beautiful sight lit up. The food was very good, with a good variety for everyone (there was 7 of us). On buffet night, I would have made reservations at a good restaurant, as it was below par. The staff were extremely helpful and ...

This cruise was our second with Viking having done the Rhine a couple years ago. I believe this was the first cruise on the ship TOR for the Danube after the Covid shut down. There were only about 49 passengers -- all covid tested and vaccinated. On the subject of covid, they tested (saliva) very day and left small collection tubes each day which you were to drop off to the main desk every ...

We have sailed with Viking previously, 2 ocean. We always wanted to do a river cruise. We were the 1st back for this particular itinerary. To say it was outstanding is an understatement. As always, service couldn't have been better, all precautions for health were taken, & then some.The ship has a sun deck equipped with tables and both sit up and lounge chairs. It also had a shuffleboard court and ...
