Young Cruisers Loved Viking

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

Laffalotte23
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Absolutely loved this cruise! I’m a younger cruiser (39) and I had a blast. A friend and I had been wanting to tour Europe and this seemed like a good fit. I think it hit all of our expectations and even surpassed on a few. The service was outstanding. All of the staff helped to make for an unforgettable vacation. The food was superb. I loved the regional specialities. The cabin is small but very ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

yachtgoddess
First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

I was sick most of the time and had little to no access to meds. I came home with Covid. Testing and meds were not available on ship. The ship was nice, clean and rooms well appointed, if not very small. The weather was cold, so the balcony wasn't really used. The food was good and the cruise director was excellent. The staff was very friendly (except for front desk), remembered names and ...

Magical Rhine River Experience

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

UKRambler
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Amsterdam the service provided by the Viking “Tialfi” staff was more than we could have hoped for. The program director did a marvelous job of coordinating our excursions so that we made the most of our time in the historic and charming ports of call along the Rhine. The tour guides were very knowledgable and provided a good mix of history and culture ...

One of our most memorable trips ever!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Tialfi

Carolina_80
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had curtailed travel for the past 3-4 years because of work, COVID, and parental caregiver responsibilities. During this time we achieved an age milestone, retired, and celebrated 40+ years of marriage. We wanted a special way to celebrate all of this so we chose Viking. This was our first Viking cruise and our first trip to this part of Europe. We liked the idea of the river cruise so that we ...

Amazing adventure

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Alruna

AuD Crew
2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

I absolutely loved my time on the Viking Alruna. This is the second Viking cruise I’ve been on and loved it just as much as the first one (first time with friends instead of family). The staff was amazing, the accommodations and food were great, the stops were fantastic. Special shoutout the BILLY, Alexandra, Van Allen, Laurentiu, Shemy, and Uri. All contributed to our time being enjoyable and ...

Overland Bus Tour

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Osfrid

NorwaySuz
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose to go on a river cruise, thinking it would be as advertised—relaxing, immersive, and beautiful scenery along a river. We got a crowded bus tour with a view of the boat next to us 5 nights out of 8. Save your money. The Douro River tour is falsely advertised. It’s up early every day (before 7 am), get on a bus by 8:15 am, go to a location (no time for exploring), get a crowded tour by ...

Taking That First Viking River Cruise in Europe - Treasures of the Rhine (Christmas-New Years Trip)

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hlin

Irish In America LLC
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Our first Viking River Cruises. We Sailed from Basel, Switzerland on the 23d on December 2023 on the Viking Ship Hlin up the Rhine River to Amsterdam. Our Original Viking Sister Ship the Alruna was not available for this River Cruise. Both ships are similar in design and service, and we transition into our A Veranda Stateroom with ease. Several of the Viking Service Staff were present to help ...

Classic Christmas Markets: a Lump of Coal

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on River Queen

Lyana F
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

After a wonderful experience with Uniworld’s Burgundy and Provence cruise five years ago I was terribly disappointed in their performance this time around with the Classic Christmas Markets cruise. While I understand that inclement weather conditions are outside anyone’s control, Uniworld did a very poor job of contingency planning. We were provided information as to the status of our itinerary ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vilhjalm

SSTIES
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We were on the last ship to depart Passau for Budapest along the Danube for the Christmas Markets. We left on December 20th after a stay in Passau. We had rain and as the river began to rise it became questionable about making our destination in Budapest by ship. We were able to make our scheduled stops in Linz and in Krems. We departed Krems after the morning excursions in order to get ahead of ...

Viking 2023 Christmas river Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vilhjalm

Lucy Deasy
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

the overall experience was really disappointing. I felt that Viking skimped on alot of small but very important items. First off, the buffet when we arrived on the ship was sparce, not many selections. However, the check in could not have been more efficient. We have been on close to 10 cruises so far and I would rate Viking at the lowest end of the cruises. Staff was great but there was ...
