Our first cruise with Viking

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because it was in an area I had been to but my wife had not. We went early and spent a few days in Paris. We did this on our own as we did not want to be limited, we wanted to see certain things. This worked well for us, an inexpensive Airbnb in a nice neighborhood with everything in easy walking distance. Boarding the ship was easy. The dock was just downriver from the ...

Friends chose this route, and we joined them for our first river cruise. Viking was aware that river levels were low, and that we would likely not complete the cruise, but let us know so late that we couldn't explore the option of cancelling. Cruising the Mosel River the first 3 days was gorgeous and we really enjoyed it. The Rhine was too low to cruise, so we went to 2 days of shores ...

What an outstanding cruise! So glad a travel agent friend of ours clued us into this special experience. This was our first-time river cruising and it was exceptional. Small ships are the way to go. The crew was personable, smiling, and service-oriented at all times. The ship was spotless. Food was fabulous, lots of variety. Plentiful choices for vegetarians. Restaurant Manager ...

We shopped around quite a bit - considered Scenic, Avalon, Viking, Amadeus, AMA-waterways, and others. Ultimately chose Scenic because there was a timely Travelzoo (!) 50% off special going on during our booking. Boy, the vacation we had on the river cruise was well-worth the money spent (and looking back, probably also worth more than what we spent). We sought a Seine river cruise primarily ...

We chose this itinerary because of the tour of Normandy (very moving) but enjoyed all the tours. They were all great. The guides were very knowledgeable. The biggest problem was trying to remember all the history. The accommodations were comfortable. Really liked the heated bathroom floors. The food was delicious with lots of choices. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There were also muffins, ...

Paris to the Swiss Alps

We have always wanted to do a trip to the Alps. Combining a River cruise with thee extension to the Alps really appealed to us. We were fortunate to be travelling with friends which really made it so much more fun. If there was a downside, I would say it was the amount of travel by bus and train. Having said that, we saw so much and although a long train ride (6 hours) on the Glacier Express, the ...

We chose this cruise because we had such great experiences on other Viking Cruises. This cruise had two great tours that we both were eager to go on. The viking experience was as excellent as we remembered, the boat, was comfortable stylish, clean, well thought out and of a very high standard. The staff, friendly, helpful, polite, professional. The food a little too delicious; freely available and ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a trip on the Rhine. The trip balanced well-led excursions and free time. Meals were superb with variety and options. The crew was outstanding - always helpful and friendly. Testing for COVID and on-board protocols were efficient, non-invasive and easily handled. The trip started with 1.5 days in Paris where lunch and dinner were on your own. The Paris ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were very interested in seeing Normandy and we heard from relatives what a great job Viking did on cruises. We made the right decision! The attention to detail, ease of transport from one location to the next, and quality of the boat were impressive. The staff was friendly, attentive, and competent. The policy regarding masks on board was spot on, and we were very comfortable every step ...

This was our second Viking River cruise, and we always wanted to visit Normandy. The history in France is amazing. Surprisingly, the people we met in Paris and other communities on our trip were friendly and helpful. The Viking crew and staff were the best we have experienced on any previous cruise (6 ocean and 1 River cruise). We hope to have the time to take another Viking River cruise, either ...
