Good, but not great

My wife and I took our first Viking river cruise in 2019, primarily because we kept hearing how wonderful Viking was from friends and neighbors. In fact, the trip was as good as we hoped it would be. This time, not so much. I don't know to what extent Covid made an impact on staffing issues at cruise lines, but the service in the dining room on our second river cruise wasn't nearly as good ...

We love river cruises and have been on five with Viking. The Chateaux, Rivers & Wine cruise did not disappoint. Lovely staff, ship and fantastic food. We took a pre extension to the Loire Valley and stayed at two lovely hotels along the way. The included tours on the cruise were very informative and we visited many delightful and informative sites. All of the included excursions are described on ...

We wanted to explore the Bordeaux region of France and its local wines. We saw new country, new customs, different people and had a wonderful time. There is always something to do with on shore excursions or simply stay on boat and relax. We found that we met different people with each meal and had choices of tables of people to join. The staff learned our names first day and even quickly ...

I chose this cruise because it promised a wine focus in the Bordeaux region, as well as visits to chateaux and mansions. Just what I wanted. The excursions and optional activities were first class. I especially liked the truffle hunting and cognac making, as well as the cruise director's special visit with a vintner at his shop and home. Wine was wonderful, as was the food, and I made several new ...

Cruising the rivers of Bordeaux Region (the Garonne, Gironde and Dordogne) in April was wine-soaked and wonderful. As expected, the Viking longships are among the best for river cruising, providing comfortable cabins at all levels. Being almost totally sold out well ahead of time, we were luckily able to get Category "E" staterooms for ourselves and our travel companions (my son and his ...

Always wanted to visit France's wine country and felt there was no better way to do it than on Viking. Every part of visiting the vineyards was planned by Viking and all we had to do was sit back and enjoy. The tasting were wonderful and varied from vineyard to vineyard. The ships staff was always there to assist you in any manor. The crew took great care of everyone and the dining service was ...

This was our 30 year anniversary celebration so we decided to take the cruise. My wife had never been to France and I really wanted to have a memorable celebration. This cruise provided an intimate setting, great food, great wine, great crew, and so relaxing. The food was wonderful every meal. We got to know several of the staff and actually sat at the same table every evening for dinner. We ...

This was the very first cruise that my wife and I had ever taken. I did not know what to expect. We were extremely happy with everything. Viking certainly does things right. Our cabin was small, yet it was adequate for our needs.I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Luggage fit nicely under the bed. Descent space in the drawers and closet. I found the bed to be very comfortable. ...
