Overpriced and underwhelmed

Our Destination Seine Tauck tour departed Paris on 10/19/2022 and returned on the 29th. This company was so highly recommended by a personal friend that we decided to give Tauck a whirl. Tauck was to come into competition with the Crystal Danube cruise we took one year prior to the pandemic. WE found the service to be very uneven, the cruise was understaffed(not acceptable taking into ...

We Chose Viking because we heard a lot of positive comments about Viking. They really do care about your experience. The cruise was great except we did not realize how many locks we would encounter (lots of noise and bumps while cruising - especially at night). Food was quite good and staff most accommodating. Entertainment was not that great -- the best was music trivia night. Generally, it ...

We hadn't been to Europe, and were traveling with elderly parents. We chose the "Paris to the Swiss Alps" cruise because it offered the opportunity to visit 4 countries, and the flexibility to extend our stay to tour the beaches of Normandy. We loved everything about it. The stateroom was larger than ones we've had on ocean cruises. The crew (from the captain to the room stewards) were very ...

My friend loves Viking so we had to give it a try. Now i know why she likes it so much. Ours was a small intimate ship. No small tables at dinner so you are forced to meet new people and make new friends. We would sit at a table with our new friends and a bottle of wine and talk for hours. I loved sitting on the top deck and watching the river landscape go by. The excursions were very ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see where D-Day took place... and we had not been to Versailles or Paris together. We enjoyed every port and particularly enjoyed Monet's house and gardens in Vernon/Giverny. The cruise staff was great... Chef was great... great menus/food. Our room was very well designed and appointed. Simple and clean. All of our luggage fit under the bed so once we ...

Cruise exceeded even Viking's superior standards

This was our third Viking cruise and was the best yet. The ship was spotless, the crew genuinely friendly and helpful. Note that the busses used are exclusively dedicated to Viking excursions and the bus drivers are very skilled and safety conscious. Maneuvering through narrow European streets and on highways is a challenge and their drivers are up to the task. I was especially impressed by ...

Amazing Cruise; Average Reservation System

We have done many ocean cruises with several different companies, but this was our first river cruise with Viking on the ship Alsvin for the Cities of Light cruise from Paris to Prague. If you like a very structured, well organized cruise this is an excellent cruise. If you like to visit cities on your own, visit friends, or like a lot of free time at each location do not take this cruise. Your ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I have always wanted to take a Viking Cruise because of the varied itineraries. My friends had taken Viking trips and highly recommended them as well as this exact trip. I also had a desire to go to Normandy because my father was in World War Two and I was a retired history teacher. The food was excellent at every meal. There was a variety of choices. The meals were served by the best servers who ...

Overpriced pre-cruise extension, poor refund handling

The cruise itself was okay, scenic but the excursions were not very interesting and all but one or two required bus travel. The discounted air was smoke and mirrors. I was able to book flights at a better price so we had Viking refund the “discounted” air we had paid them. The ship seemed short staffed. Dinner was delivered but then the wait staff did not stop back to see if anything more ...

This was our 3rd Viking River Cruise. We love Viking and have had great experiences on 2 previous cruises, one on the Rhine River and the other on the Danube. We booked this cruise to go from Paris to Normandy and back to Paris on the Seine, where we then took a high speed train to Lyon, and embarked on the Viking Heimdal to the south of France on the Rhone River to Avignon. We extended our stay ...
