Intimate cruise, all inclusive, no nickel-and-diming us. Excellent guides, great staff, plethora of ports of call. Sooooo much better than previous ocean cruises. We especially liked all of the UNESCO heritage sites and the wine tasting opportunities. We met some amazing people, primarily because we got to see them in an intimate setting throughout the cruise. In fact, we’re cruising with people we met on this cruise again. They have become very good friends. The staff was amazing! They perform multiple duties because it is a very small ship compared to ocean cruisers. They were excellent at all their different jobs. From beginning to end we were pampered and taken care of. We lack for nothing, and didn’t have to purchase anything extra for this trip. It is a bit expensive, but it is worth the money. We still talk about this trip to our friends frequently. We signed up for one twice as long a year later. We are looking forward to cruising with biking again and again. Read Less

I chose this cruise so my husband would have a very nice introduction into Europe. So, I chose it for the ports and land tours. We arrived in Pairs and stayed at the Pullman Eiffel Tower and explored Paris (!) both day and night. We did some on our own and also took the Highlights of Paris tour and then the Montmartre tour with the funniest and knowledgeable Janice. She was absolutely delightful, We then boarded a bus and traveled to Luxembourg and saw the American WWII Cemetery and then on to Trier Germany where we met with the Viking Hild. We cruised the Mozelle and Rhine Rivers by an expert captain and crew. Our Cruise Director Carla was ever so attentive to our stay and excursions. She was so kind and caring. The food was amazing. We also loved dancing to a wonderful Pianist Cezar. You would think we would be tired after sightseeing, but Cezar had us up dancing. Service and cleanliness impeccable. The people at the ports were delightful and our tour guides were so well educated to the area. I liked that you could do all the excursions or just be on your own. We so enjoyed Germany especially Mainz, Spyer and Cochem. We sailed to Strasbourg France - again amazing. Our final cruise stop was Bazel Switzerland. Amazing. We took the option tour of the Alps which was well worth it. We also cruised the lake in Zurich. Travel plans including plane travel, arrival,pick-up and disembarkation were so sooth. Again - Amazing. From the travel person assisting with the reservation on to the cruise and home. So personalized. I loved the volume of passengers. We made great friends and memories. I did not feel like a number. Amazing. My husband so loved Europe and Viking that we already are planning on our next trip soon! Read Less

Every facet of the Viking experience from contacting them to discuss cruises to the final disembarkation is as good as it gets. Viking's customer service is second to none. All agents I have spoken with have been friendly and knowledgeable. I advise anyone to always call Viking to get a quote. Viking offers many specials that are not on their website. Call them and negotiate. Additionally, be sure to check out Viking Air. On some cruises it can even be free from larger international airports. The Rhine Rhapsody cruise actually begins in Paris. We stayed at the Le Meridian in the Etoile' district of Paris. It is not the most convenient hotel to central Paris but a taxi or Metro ride can quickly get you to central Paris. This cruise spends two days in Paris and the second day you can do a us tour of major sites. On the third day you take a bus to Trier with a short stop in Luxembourg. The ride is long and pretty boring. Embarkation is later that afternoon and is as smooth as it gets. Once on the ship, you can relax in your comfortable stateroom before supper. The ship was clean and all of the employees are extremely helpful. All food from breakfast to supper is excellent. There were a few misses, but that can be chalked up to preferences rather than inferior food or ingredients. Most every stop has some sort of local entertainment coming on board and they are usually very good performers. This cruise stops in many interesting ports including Cochem, Bernkastle, Heidelberg and Strasbourg. This cruise and the Rhine River cruise are both fantastic cruises and I highly recommend them both. We will continue to cruise with Viking. We have already booked a Viking sea cruise and are anticipating a wonderful experience. For more travel information go to my website: www.theearthandacompass.com Read Less
