Our friends were booked on this cruise, they told us about it and we joined them. The trip was just fantastic. The tours were great, the food was fantastic. I gained a few pounds... lol. The staff was so personable. It was like being at a B&B. The service was second to none. I would highly recommend Viking to anyone . We liked it so much we already booked another river cruise next year for our 30th wedding anniversary. The thing we like most about this cruise was the size. It was nice and small. We weren’t a number. The staff always addressed us by name. We went on the Tulip and Windmills cruise. The gardens were stunning. We even had the opportunity to visit a home . That was wonderful. We thought our cruise director was just wonderful. She really made this trip. If one decides to book a Viking cruise you won’t be disappointed . Read Less

The itineraries and destinations were all places that I wanted to see. One of the highlights is actually one of the more simple things though- the scenic cruising days that we would spend on the sun deck sailing past castle after castle in the warm sunshine. Everyone that worked on the ship was amazing and had my name memorized which was awesome. I miss them very much! Don't get me started on the food. I was so spoilt! It was often difficult to choose from the options on the menu because they all sounded good. We loved the complimentary coffee/hot chocolate and cookie station. We often helped ourselves to a nice hot chocolate and cookie then would go back to the room and watch episode after episode of Downton Abbey on the very nice flatscreen tv's. Nicer than the tv in my house! As was the heated floor in the bathroom. I might have enjoyed myself too much. Made a lot of friends. Unforgettable trip. Read Less

Traveling on a Viking Cruise was my grandmother's idea and thankfully she invited my mother, my aunt and I to travel with her. It was a wonderful experience to travel with 3 generations to the incredible ports we visited; however, it was the Viking crew that made our experience so memorable. My grandmother is 91 years old and there were some excursions that were more challenging than others, but our cruise director, Sam, always went above and beyond for us to keep her included in activities or to be frank and let us know that she should relax on the ship instead. The whole crew made all of us feel like royalty, they knew what we liked to eat and drink and just made us feel so special. The ship is just the right size so that you get to know many of the other passengers and by the time the cruise is over, it feels like many are family. The food was delicious at all of our meals and the bar staff were so accommodating and fun that they felt like good friends. Our cabins were nice and always clean. I can't wait to go back on another Viking Cruise and highly recommend it to others! Read Less

Nothing but positive reviews! Took the Grand European itinerary. The ship, the crew, the food, the ports, the included tours...all fantastic. Stayed in lowest cabin category possible and it was just fine. Cabin a bit small but an amazing bathroom that easily accommodated two woman and all their "stuff"! Two special dietary needs (a vegetarian and someone gluten free) were beautifully handled. Onboard programs/entertainment was delightful. Loved the personal quiet sets that each passenger had for shore excursions. Made it so easy to hear every word the tour guide had to say. On that note, the local guides that met our groups at each port were very good and knew their stuff. We were lucky and had good weather and rivers that were 100% passable. Never had to do any of the dreaded "ship swaps"! Our cruise director, Meike, was charming, classy and well informed. Tony, the pianist each day, was wonderful. Bar/dining room staff (shoutout to Georgi, Stephen and Laaaaadies-man) was solicitous and made you feel like you were Dining in a 5 star restaurant each day. Housekeeping were right on point (thanks, Nenad!). One additional thing...we were two girlfriends traveling together. It was a very comfortable situation and we never felt like we were the odd men out! Again, can't rate our experience high enough. Have booked another Viking cruise in May of 2017. Can't wait!!

Great longship Fantastic very helpful staff and crew . Dining room and bar facilities are excellent. A pleasant relaxed river cruise.We are from New Zealand so had come a long way to take the cruise. The hotel in Paris all part of the cruise was in a great location and walking distance to the many sites in Paris. The included coach trip around Paris covered all areas and was fantastic. We were on the third trip of the new Longship Gefjon. A very well laid out ship. Shore excursions were very well selected and a credit to Viking. This was our first trip with Viking. Have been with others cruise operators . Will most certainly do another cruise with Viking. As an operator they are very well organised and know how to look after their passengers. Would recommend this trip to all. If i had to name one thing that made the cruise so great it would be the entire staff on board. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and enjoy the cruise. Thank you to all staff on board Viking Gefjon 5th to 15th May 2016 Read Less
