This was outstanding. Everything was first class all the way. Captain met us on the gang plank,with cocktails and snacks after one excursion. Chef gave us dinner recommendations nightly. When it was raining, the crew met us at the bus with umbrellas. Heated mirrors in the bathroom along with heated floors. Treats from ports that were known for special things. Cruise director carried our bags on board. Escorted to our room. First rate all,the way! Stunning scenery. Definitely would recommend. Love the River Cruise over the ocean cruise. Much more personalized. Able to get to know the staff and passengers. Nothing negative to say. Food was exceptional. Wine was excellent. Excursions were nice. Staff were personable and very helpful. Treated like family, although we were called explorers. Plan on taking another River Cruise. We bought on board credit for $200 valued at $400 and applied it to our future cruise in 2021 to China.... The Jewels of China. Can’t wait! Read Less

We thought this was the perfect trip to help us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Lots of interesting venues to discover. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like VIPs. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. The organisation was second to none and we could just relax and look forward to a memorable holiday. We loved the fact that each day there was a trip included in the itinerary. We could choose to go or stay. There was also the option to have extra trips from each port of call. We were kept informed about where we were sailing each day and the crew were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Our Cruise Director was outstanding. We met as strangers and left as friends. We also made friends, who we are still in touch with, on board. We loved the intimate nature of the cruise. Just the right number of passengers. Our stateroom was superb. Everything you could want. The headphones provided for each day’s trip were excellent. Loved the small fridge where we could keep water etc. Just a wonderful trip - so good, we came home and immediately booked another one!

Viking is a Premier company. The ship, staff, cuisine, side trips were all amazing. The wait staff was absolutely amazing. After only one day they were aware of your personal preferences of beverage coffee, tea, soft drink, white or red wine) My travelling companion had many dietary restrictions and our Maitre de was at our table every evening to help her making choices and adjustments that the kitchen would be able to make. The ship in general was totally clean...no dust, no stains. We participated in most of the included tours and did take 3 or 4 of the additional add on choices. I was so impressed that I have already booked a second cruise for next year. My only complaint was with the hotel in Amsterdam for our post cruise stay. Our last night we were subjected to 'neighbors' who were fighting, screaming, banging on the wall and making attempts to enter our room. This went on well into the night. I called the front desk at about 1:30 a.m. and was promised it would be addressed. It stopped briefly and then started up again and I called about 2:30 am...this time I finally did stop. Although this is certainly not any fault of Viking, it was a awful experience. I can not believe that the hotel did not in any way apologize or offer some type of compensation. As we were two senior women, it was quite a frightful experience. Read Less

We are not into cruising but the concept of a river cruise where everyday you were in a different town with planned excursions appealed to me. I also did not have high expectations of the cruise itself thinking it would be like riding a Greyhound Bus because of all of Viking's advertising. The cruise blew me away. It was way beyond my expectations. Five stars are not enough to describe it. From the ship, to the crew, to meals, to the daily excursions..........all were well beyond first class. The ship was high tech and wonderfully appointed. The crew was genuine and sincere in it's treatment of all "explorers". The meals were five star, gourmet. The included and optional excursions had wonderful guides that provided a local perspective to the areas toured. I can not think of anyway to make the Viking Grand European Cruise any better. I would recommend Viking and the Grand European Cruise to all. It is worth every dollar it cost. Read Less

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
