We choose this "bucket list" cruise for the places it was going, excursions that were happening and impressive reviews by others. It was more than I even dared hope it would be. Staff was amazing: attentive but not intrusive. We were able to become part of the "leisure" tourers and had many of the photographers with us, which was wonderful. Lots of variation in what we saw and did. Learned ...

We chose to go on Viking because they had the schedule that fit our calendar. We had a good recommendation from friends who had been on the exact cruise and loved it. We loved the intimacy and personal attention given to us by everyone on board. The layout of the vessel was good and the service was top rate! Although the room was smaller than others, it was sufficient and always clean. We ...

First impressions of the boat is that it is nothing like an ocean liner. But we found our time well spent. Dining: self seating made it possible for us to choose where we wanted to sit and with whom. This allowed travelers to mingle. Wine and beer flowed freely at lunch and dinner, which surely added to the friendly atmosphere we have never before experienced on ocean cruises. Food was ...

We had previously taken the Viking cruise up the Seine from Paris to Normandy and back and enjoyed it so much we wanted to take another cruise. The Rhine is bigger and more picturesque and Germany was a fascinating place to see, as well as Strasbourg and Amsterdam. We were very pleased with this trip as well as the previous cruise. One thing about Viking that I thoroughly enjoy is their ...

Excellent cruise - let down by surprisingly bad accommodation

Very modern ship and I would liken it to a 4 star hotel that moves. The receptionists were friendly and knowledgeable, Concierge service was there if needed (and it was for a hospital visit!). On embarkation, all the centre of town moorings were taken in Basel - but a coach took us from the industrial wasteland mooring in to town and a walking tour was offered. Very good and barely noticed the ...

I saw a picture of the Rhine and thought I would never be able to go, Viking Cruises made it possible. Imagine sailing down the Rhine and experiencing all the Castles and legends from your guide, take in the beautiful scenery. Then time to eat, experience the many, exquisite & mouth watering meals, some from the countries you visit. Shore excursions are interesting, educational and ...

I liked the destinations. I had a pre-cruise with a couple of friends, in Basel, where we did our own adventure,then, had a wonderful walking tour with a Viking Cruise tour guide the next morning and also,by a local guide, after we boarded the ship, Kara. The ship staff / crew were very efficient, friendly and helpful. Elizabeth Rafferty, the program coordinator, was truly amazing, energetic ...

My wife and I are serious cruisers and have gone on many cruise vacations over the past several years. Our trip on the Kara was our second Viking cruise. Our first trip on the Danube was OK but with some issues but we felt Viking was worth a second look. Our cruise started in Amsterdam which is a great city and one of our favorites. We took the train from Paris and easily walked to the ship ...

This was our first cruise, ever. We were very lucky to reserve a stateroom with a sitting room. It was very nice, even though the weather was rainy for most of the trip. It was still beautiful to look out the window and see the beautiful country and cities as we passed. The dining was first class all the way~excellent food served by very attentive waiters. We had a special menu and every server ...

We have always wanted to do a river cruise and planned this with my two sisters and their husbands. We chose October because it was less expensive than other months and not too cold yet. We are all experienced ocean cruisers. My husband and I have been on 35 ocean cruises. The ship was lovely with a large lounge area where we were able to sit each evening and enjoy reading, talking and a glass of ...
