Were interested in seeing the heart of central Europe. For our embarkation location, we had the opportunity to visit Luxembourg City and thoroughly enjoyed exploring this enchanting town. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. No issues. Dining rooms were always clean and well maintained. Food was well prepared and choices were plentiful. Servers were accommodating, friendly and always professional. One of our favorite diversions was afternoon tea and snacks. Great selection of drinks, sandwiches and sweets. Ports and shore excursions were well thought out and planned for. The assigned guides were knowledgeable, personable and approachable. Each had a passion for the area they were taking us through and had a talent for pointing out even the smallest (but most interesting) details. They just made you feel comfortable. Cabin design was well laid out and comfortable. Cleaning staff did an awesome job. Cabin cleaning/maintenance was always complete by the time we returned from shore activities or whatever we were doing. We were never in each others way. Read Less

In celebration of our 50th Anniversary my husband and I went on the Paris to the Alps Viking Cruise and we had the time of our life. Everything was so well orchestrated and taken care of there were no worries for us. We were met at the airport in Paris by the Viking director Boris and he was there for us from the time we landed in Europe until we left the Kvasir for Switzerland. He took care of every need and question. He was great. The ship was beautiful and so were the buses. Our cabin was very comfortable and clean. Our room attendant Mr. Slaviska took very good care of us. The dining was exquisite. Good thing they didn’t weigh us when we boarded. So many choices. Our servers Ina, Archie, Judit, Jefferson and Wilfredo saw to our every need. The food was to die for. I loved it when the chef gave a little “talk” before dinner about what he had prepared. The entertainment was good. We enjoyed the talks and history Boris gave every evening about the next days tour. The ports and excursions were fantastic. The guides were so knowledgeable. We loved hearing about the history. Our post trip to Switzerland was like a dream . It was so beautiful riding the Glacier Express to Zermatt. Raphael was a wonderful guide he took great care of everyone and gave us a lot of hints and information on what we can see and do on our free time. We would go again on a Viking cruise in a heartbeat. Read Less

My husband and I traveled with another couple. We added the two extra nights in Paris which I would highly recommend. We had a wonderful time. The tours, towns, buses, food, entertainment, and overall service was fantastic. I only have two complaints. When you book the extra nights through Viking, their price is more than double the actual price of the hotel. Lastly, they need to allow more time in between connecting flights. Paris airport is huge, ad 90 minutes between flights is not enough time. These are two minor complaints. With that being said, I would gladly travel with Viking again. With the exception of one tour guide, all of the included tours and guides were very informative. The staff were always helpful and friendly. We enjoyed every minute on the boat. Lots of food with a great selection. Great beer and wine during happy hour and with dinner. The room was spacious and kept spotless. The Program Director had a wicked sense of humor and kept things lively. This was probably the best vacation I have ever taken. We were constantly on the go. There is so much to see. Read Less

We took the cruise-only portion of the Paris to Prague cruise. We spent several days on our own in Paris, then took the TGV to Luxembourg City and then the public bus to Remich that dropped us off within 100 ft of the ship (the bus fare was $2 - a bargin!). The hotel manager met us at the bottom of the gangway and took care of our bags. We were in Room 208 on the Sapphire Deck. The design and maintenance of the cabin was great! The slight angling of the wall between the bed and the bathroom made both rooms seem larger than in cabins with perpendicular walls. Thanks to whoever came up with the idea. The lunches and dinners were very good, especially the soups and salads. The breakfasts were pretty much the same each day - not bad but not outstanding. The ship has a nice lounge area on the Deck 3 aft where coffee and tea are available 24/7 as well as pastries and juice. The one disappointment was the tasting menu that they serve in the evening in the bistro. It was an effort to add some variety to the food choices, but it is a set menu and some of the items didn't go together with each other and with the wines very well. All of the tours were good. We especially enjoyed the wine tasting in Bernkastel, the stop in Miltonburg (less touristy than a lot of the other city we visited), and the Residence in Wurzburg. The crew was very helpful and conscience throughout the cruise. The key disappoint was the limited pre-cruise support. We did not book a pre-cruise transfer so we needed to get information on where the ship would be docked in Remich. We were told that we would be sent that information a couple of days before we embarked, but nothing ever came. Fortunately, Remich is a very small town and the bus driver knew where the ship was docked so it was a none issue, but providing an address ahead of time would have been appreciated. Read Less
