"From the first excursion in Prague through the last one in Paris, the Viking process ran like a finely tuned machine.After considering several cruise companies we selected Viking based on many positive reviews and consistently high cruise industry ratings...."Read More

An Amazing Experience

Having sailed with Viking before, choosing them again was an obvious choice. I was going on this trip as a birthday present for myself, and took my mother along with me. It was her first time out of the country. Viking was everything we both could have hoped for with this experience. The fact that they take care of booking the flights and the airport transfers reduces a lot of the stress of ...

Excellent Cruise But Too Much Bus Travel

The cruise was excellent but there was too much bus travel. In particular, the bus ride to Paris was well over 4 hours after embarking the ship. On board the ship the service by Viking personnel was superb in all respects. The food on board was very good and the ship was immaculate. The included tours were interesting and the local tour guides were well prepared, imformative, and gave ...

We liked the thought of the hybrid nature of this cruise, with 2 nights in hotel in both Prague and Paris. First of all, let me say Viking was not responsible for the heat, or the airline issues many of us experienced in post covid environment that made some parts not so enjoyable, in fact their services were top notch and how comforting it was to be met at the airport by a friendly person in a ...

This was our first river cruise. After considering several cruise companies we selected Viking based on many positive reviews and consistently high cruise industry ratings. We can't say enough positive things about our experience. From the moment we arrived at the airport in Prague, we were greeted by a Viking representative and from there we were professionally and comfortably taken through ...

Terrible waste of money - worst cruise ever

From the start: 1. Corinthian Hotel, Prague - quite a distance from city center, old bed with springs coming though, price for 2-night extension through Viking was $399 per person, price per room through hotel was $100 per night, rude employees, kept requesting toilet paper but ultimately had to take from public WC in lobby. 2. Ship - Booked a balcony room and when our luggage was brought ...

Viking made the whole process easy and seamless from our arrival in Prague to our departure from Paris. The cruise director was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, entertaining--both fun and funny! The on-board service was outstanding throughout the ship. The reception desk staff went above and beyond to repair an item of my husband's that had been damaged in transit. And the dining room staff ...

Viking has come a long way since we started river cruising. The new river boats are sleek and comfortable. Food is good but not wow! Gourmet dinning is really just a `love boat:" fantasy on most cruises. and has disappeared along with the Midnight Buffet. The food is good and plentiful but we have down graded our expectations a long time ago. What is striking is how efficient Viking is at ...

We chose the cruise because of the cities we were visiting and the brochure which spoke to some education regarding the history. The service was wonderful. Food was good but definitely not exceptional . I like the concept of have beverages available during the dinner and lunch. The lounge was very comfortable and the front deck, when the sun came out ,was fantastic. It was a bit cool ...

This was my first cruise and it appealed to me because I wanted to see as much as possible with a group of friends. I did not want to organize anything or unpack. I am not interested in swimming, big shows or getting dressed up. This river cruise was perfect. The City of Light is part bus and mostly ship. I was able to see both Prague and Paris on this trip. Every sight along the rivers was ...

We had gone on several ocean cruises, but not on Viking. We decided to try a river cruise. We loved it!!! Many of our friends recommended Viking and we can understand shy. Our pre and post ports and hotels were very nice and in good locations. We were able to access restaurants and shops easily before and after being on the river. The Viking staff in Prague and Paris took very good care of ...
