Viking Cruises, Community Team has responded
Welcome home, and thank you for taking the time to provide a detailed review of your voyage aboard Viking Gullveig. We’re delighted to hear that you enjoyed your pre-cruise extension in Prague, and appreciate your praise of our culinary offerings.
Although it is with regret that we learn of your disappointment with your shore excursions and dining service, your feedback allows us the opportunity to address both the positive aspects of your Romantic Danube journey, such as your helpful Viking representative, as well as the negative.
Your Viking experience is important to us, and accordingly we have arranged for a member of our Customer Relations department to reach out to you via phone call to further understand what could have made this into a five-star cruise. We look forward to speaking with you, Micclay, and wish you a pleasant day.
