Viking Cruise Reviews

Very cool windmill
My cousin Gina and I enjoying our windmill tour.
We are in the lounge area with our favorite bartender Joe having a great Happy Hour experience with snacks.
Every part of the gardens on Kukenhof's 79 acres are beautiful!

Review for Viking Einar to Europe - River Cruise

First let me say, there are some things Viking does well and other things, as we've learned on this cruise, can be disappointing. This was a last minute deal that was too good to pass up although in hindsight, maybe we should have waited. Cruising during the summer in Europe is something we normally avoid and given all the airline problems, this would have been.a good year to not make an ...

The rating is linked to a specific ship but the 3-star rating includes the performance of pre-cruise customer service, Viking Air, MyVikingJourney.com and etc. We had high expectation of this trip because Viking in the past always exceeded expectations. Viking's onboard crew continued to excel at the highest level, especially the wait staff in the restaurants. However, I did experience ...

First. I think Viking is the best river cruise company around. Second. If we had done the Romantic Danube first and the Rhine Getaway second I think my review would be different. But the Rhine Getaway was so fabulous and magical that it is hard to compare. Our trip was also during an unusual low tide with ongoing airline travel issues - both problematic. That said - here are the highs and ...

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We had docked in two industrial ports far from the city center when the corporate office decided we could not continue to sail on the Rhine. We sailed back to Strausbourg. We then spent 4 hours or more on 2 separate days riding on a bus to various excursions. We exchanged ships with another group of passengers and continued on the cruise. ...

This will be a recap of our recent Viking River trip, with the pre-cruise package, from Zurich to Paris. The pre-cruise package added Geneva and Zermatt to the itinerary. Being South Florida residents, we opted for the Viking plus Air service to get our preferred direct flights from Miami to Zurich and Paris to Miami. We booked Business class on Swiss Air from Miami (so-so service and rather ...

We departed Phoenix,AZ on July 12, 2022, bound for a Viking Grand European River Cruise boarding in Budapest, Hungry on the Viking Aegir. We are very experienced cruisers with 9 Viking cruises for myself and 12 for my spouse. Upon arrival we were greeted by Viking representative at the Budapest airport and boarded a bus telling us they had called the ship, and someone would be there to greet us. ...

We went on this cruise to accompany our soon to be 88 year old mother who originally was going to do this trip in 2020 with her husband who has since passed. Oberammergau was on her bucket list, so the Viking cruise was a great way to do this and end it with the Passion Play. Viking is wonderful, the service, the staff, the ship--all great. The tough part is for anyone with any sort of ...

Viking dropped the ball on our Munich-Nuremberg transfer but will reimburse our private transportation cost. After that it was smooth sailing (though the Viking pre-cruise Nuremberg Hotel Le Meridian Grand Hotel had small rooms and poor A/C though a very good breakfast and sauna. We thought the larger Veranda Suite was just right with its additional French door in the bedroom, though more ...

Beware Elbe Low Water Level

My wife and I had cruised Viking on the Rhine, Main, Danube, and Moselle previously. We knew what a great experience Viking provides its passengers, and so we wanted another Viking experience on another river. We had attempted to book the Elbe cruise before, but because the river was too low for a complete on-water itinerary, we chose the cancellation option Viking afforded us. We booked this ...
