On this River Cruise, we joined two additional couples for the tour of Normandy. (Viking made coordinating with the other couples seamless, by the way even though we were traveling from three different cities.). This was our third river cruise with Viking. As always, the service—ship and staff—were wonderful! The cabin, even though small, is very well organized therefore the size is not ...

We have had a river cruise on out "bucket list" for several years. Viking's reputation led us to booking with them. We were not disappointed. We have shared the experience of our cruise with whomever will listen, and praise Viking at every level. The cruise, accommodations, tours, food and entertainment created an overall experience that we will never forget. Not to mention a crew that ...

We just returned from a one week cruise on the Viking Atla. The cruise and destinations are beautiful and interesting; however I want to talk more about the ship and the staff. The ship was built in 2013 and is beginning to show its age; however it is meticulously maintained. We have done river cruises with other companies and we found the layout of the Viking longships to be the best we have ...

I went on this cruise with my 20 year old daughter. After several ocean cruises, this was my first experience on a river cruise. It was an amazing trip. The staff and crew were always friendly and accommodating. The ship, cabin, and food were all awesome. The provided shore excursions and tour guides were all very interesting. Viking took great care of us throughout the entire ...

Viking Cruises now has a loyal customer for life! Not only was the cruise AMAZING! But I feel like you learn a lot about a company based off of how they deal with obscacles. Four days before our cruise started, we were informed that the water was low and we would be aboard Ship Jarl (not original ship) instead of Ship Atla (orginal ship) and that there was a possibilty that if the water didn't ...

We chose this cruise because it was the right length and covered all of the highlights we wanted. I was expecting a lot and was absolutely not disappointed. Amazing service and from the cruise director, to maids, to bartender to guides they were all incredibly friendly and helpful. We ate great, stayed in a comfortable cabin and loved the amenities. The excursions we very well thought out. ...

Chose this voyage to celebrate my sisters 65th birthday. First time to Budapest and loved the city. All arrangements to the hotel and ship were great. Long ships are small compact but lacking nothing. We chose a simple cabin as our trip was port intensive and was not planning on spending much time in the room. Dining was great menu more limited than cruise ships but adequate and the quality ...

From start to finish, our cruise was excellent. This was our first river cruise, and we can't wait to do another. The food was not excellent, but certainly very good, although the fish dishes I tried were not the best. However, the atmosphere and the great wait staff plus choices and choices, plus free wine made it very fine. The land tours were very good and we really appreciated the sound ...

I wanted to learn more about Eastern European Countries. It was an excellent experience hearing from the people themselves what is was like to be communist. And how the change affected them. We never really learned in school about their history. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise the excursions were very informative, especially the home visits with their personal stories. The guides were very good ...

We started on the trip on the Jarl river boat because there was a problem with a river lock that kept our original boat the Alta from making it to our starting point. We were not happy to learn after day two that we would have to change ships part way through our river cruise. NO PROBLEM Viking did everything in there power to make it as easy a switch as they could. The problem was beyond ...
