Viking was by far the most beautiful boats out there on the Rhine! We had never been to Europe before. This was by far the BEST way to see Europe. down the Rhine River. The boat was Kept up and fresh all along the way. The food and it’s variety was really good. The staff gets 10 stars. They were absolutely superb. Every one of them. The daily included excursions were great and just the right mix of adventure and time. We loved everyone of them. Entertainment lacked a little but not a show stopper for us. Would have been mice to have a show or 2 onboard. I don’t have a negative word to say. This trip and boat by far met our expectations with a few surprises. We would take Viking again and again. The boats and the staff and the excursions and the food were the best Can’t wait to go again Read Less

Never considered, nor had any interest in this type of cruise/vacation. Suddenly after receiving an email with offer of special pricing for cruise & airfare, we decided to "go for it". So glad we did. Viking made us feel like their only passenger from the very first day until our return home. They really know how to manage every angle of your vacation, while at the same time totally staying out of your way. From meeting us at the airport on arrival, to stacking our luggage in front of our bus prior to disembarkation, we were totally convinced Viking truly deserves their reputation for being #1. Ship was awesome, and service at the level of a 5 Star hotel/restaurant. Our suite cabin was beautiful and just the right size. We definitely recommend the 2 room suite over a single. Ports were well planned and thought out, as were the shore excursions. Buses were like new, clean, comfortable and the drivers never once had us wondering if we were going to survive the trip. Our only issue was related to the crowds we encountered while on tour(s). Not sure how this could be avoided by Viking or anyone else for that matter; perhaps less famous/popular locations. Of course that too would to some degree defeat the purpose of the trip, so just be prepared for lots of people and lines. The best feature of the trip was perhaps the least noticed; the crew. These people are truly wonderful and so professional. Many we probably never even saw, such as engineering, navigating, etc. The entire onboard staff was professional, ready to assist us at any time, in any way possible. Ship was clean, quite and felt like it wasn't even moving most of time. Food was beyond our expectation and the service was head spinning. Many knew and called us by our first names. How they do that is a mystery, but really highlights Viking's promise of being first class from beginning to end. Read Less

The itinerary was interesting and beautiful. The ship was cozy, clean, comfortable and nice. The staff was service oriented. They quickly learned to anticipate our wants and needs. This vacation exceeded our expectations and will be sailing with them again. We are already planning our next Viking Cruise. An extra bonus was we’ve made some new and hopefully long time friends on this cruise. The food was delicious. The banana pancakes was my morning delight. The variety of the menu each day was another benefit. Offering both regional as well as steak and chicken, everyone could fine something to please their tastebuds. Fortunately the excursions provided some exercise or we would have gained weight. However we enjoyed all the extra activities so we didn’t gain but a couple pounds. Ha We were pampered and didn’t have to concern ourselves with planning anything. It’s truly a vacation. The transport to and from the airport was so stress free. The representative from Viking was easily to locate and welcomed us with smiles and friendliness which was appreciated after our long flight. Can’t wait to book another cruise next year. We might sail the Danube next time. Read Less

I was very interested in the European history and the areas that this cruise was covering. I do have one suggestion to add and that is not to have so much leisure time when visiting a site. For Czechi Kremlov, we had about 2 hours for lunch and leisure time. Whereas that could have been shortened by an hour to give us time to visit inside the castle. This tour was around the castles and not being able to visit inside the castle was disappointing. I think a better planning on the time would be much better received by your customers. We really enjoyed the intimate setting and staff's attention to all details. Our tour coordinators were great and we can not say enough for their dedication and knowledge to serving your guests. Also, food was really good. Enjoyed the lavish breakfast buffet every morning. We would definitely be taking more Viking River cruises in the future. Read Less

We spent a couple of days in Amsterdam prior to embarking, which helped with jet lag and acclimating to being on vacation. Getting to and on the ship was a snap. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness of all of the staff was remarkable. Everyone was very helpful and friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. The restaurant was top notch. Really appreciated the daily briefings and the onboard presentations. The glassblower was a lot of fun and had some interesting stories. Just a wonderful and relaxed way to visit so many beautiful towns that I otherwise would probably have not experienced. The coordination with off shore excursions was seamless and the local guides made the experiences intimate and fun. I appreciated the time for wandering around unscripted also. Our trip extension to Prague was wonderful and the Viking hospitality continued on dry land. Overall a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone! Read Less

We decided to take a Viking cruise based on all the accolades Viking received from our friends Our Grand European Cruise exceeded all of our expectations. Beginning at the Amsterdam Airport when the Viking representative took charge of our luggage. The Stateroom was spacious Dining was such a delightful experience whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food selection at breakfast and lunch was plentiful but our dinners were outstanding and the presentation was terrific The selection of cities we visited were wonderful and the tour guides very knowledgeable and courteous. So enjoyed the nightly entertainment on the ship whether it was our piano player or entertainment from the city we were anchored in for the evening The Service Viking provided was absolutely outstanding from the crew assisting us in our tours remembering our name choice of cocktail, wine etc. We could continue forever. We can not wait until we take another trip. . Read Less

This was our first river cruise, but because of the experience we had, it will not be our last. From the time that we got on the ship, it was obvious that the crew was well trained in customer service and they went out of their way to make sure our cruise was special. Our cabin was small but very functional and even had heated flooring in the bathroom. The ship itself was wonderful and the ride so smooth that I used the upper rail for a camera tripod. The food was very good and the daily excursions were informative and tailored to suit the abilities of each customer. For the people with some restrictions, they had special tours. All questions were immediately answered by the front desk or the concierge and she was the most caring and helpful that I have ever worked with. The capacity of the ship is less than 300 and it has open dining, so you will meet many of the other travelers and likely make many new friends. I highly recommend the Viking River Cruise and especially the Viking Ingvi crew. Read Less
