Review for Viking Einar to Europe - River Cruise

First let me say, there are some things Viking does well and other things, as we've learned on this cruise, can be disappointing. This was a last minute deal that was too good to pass up although in hindsight, maybe we should have waited. Cruising during the summer in Europe is something we normally avoid and given all the airline problems, this would have been.a good year to not make an ...

The rating is linked to a specific ship but the 3-star rating includes the performance of pre-cruise customer service, Viking Air, MyVikingJourney.com and etc. We had high expectation of this trip because Viking in the past always exceeded expectations. Viking's onboard crew continued to excel at the highest level, especially the wait staff in the restaurants. However, I did experience ...

Chose this cruise as we have not explored this area of southern France before. The cabin proved to be adequate and was kept tidy & clean by hardworking housekeepers. Food and drink were generally very good with a couple of excellent exceptions, proving what could be achieved with a bit more effort. Staff were generally helpful and courteous, but there was always a feeling that full ...

First. I think Viking is the best river cruise company around. Second. If we had done the Romantic Danube first and the Rhine Getaway second I think my review would be different. But the Rhine Getaway was so fabulous and magical that it is hard to compare. Our trip was also during an unusual low tide with ongoing airline travel issues - both problematic. That said - here are the highs and ...

When thinking through how to summarize the amazing week I just experienced on my Avalon cruise I figured I would share some of the highlights that made this cruise memorable! The Avalon crew knew me by name! The meals, where you could experience local favorites while trying the included wine and beer for lunch and dinner. The stateroom is filled with your closest friends and new companions you met ...

Having only been on one other river cruise , aboard a Croisi Europe Rhône Cruises last fall, we were anxious to finally set sail on a Viking River voyage.It met and usually exceeded all expectations. The vessel was spotless, the crew all very professional and always courteous, shore trips were all well organized. The food was of an excellent quality, perfectly prepared. The soups were ...

We always wanted to be on a river cruise and we finally did! After lots of research we decided on Avalon. It was a wise choice! Fantastic people, from the Cruise Director Maria Pascual to all the crew. I'm a Personal Chef and I can tell you the cuisine and the service was first class (fantastic breakfasts). I talked to your executive Chef every day and I even got to meet the Corporate Chef while ...

We selected this cruise as it was part of a package being offered by a local travel agent. It was the first cruise of any type for me and I was very pleased with the experience. The ship itself exceeded my expectations and the staff was top notch. Our cruise director, Luis, was excellent and worked hard to make sure the passengers were happy and well cared for. There were multiple tour options ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Originally booked in 2020 this river cruise should have gone from Budapest to Cologne but was cancelled and then offered as Cologne to Budapest in 2021, cancelled, and the 2022. Shortly before setting out I was informed that because of low water in the Rhine the start point would be Mainz not Cologne. That was not a problem but getting there was as I had chosen Eurostar. We got as far as Brussels ...

Review for AmaMagna to Europe - River Cruise

As we were searching for a river cruise in this region I discovered the AmaMagna. As the largest cruise boat on the river the public spaces aboard were larger and the top deck double the size of most boats. The gym looked incredible and the fact that they offered a wellness host, bikes at every stop and activities from gentle to active were all plusses. The ship did not disappoint. It was ...
