Review for Viking Kara to Europe - All

We chose this cruise because of the location. This was our 3rd cruise with Viking and we have always been satisfied. The food was not as good as it was the past 2 times. Also the service was not on point. We give them some slack because of the pandemic and the shortage of staff. However, we wanted to take an unscheduled trip to an area in Germany and the Captain “made it happen”! They ...

Excellent Service by crew. Great food. The suggestions I would provide is that ship have a pool, work out area, and spa. Also the excursions at some of stops were too short to explore the area. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone and look forward to going on a Viking Ocean Cruise in the next 24-36 months. Staff was courteous, professional, and attentive. We had laundry service done ...

We always wanted to do a European river cruise and because we were coming off a B2B Norwegian Fjords & Scandinavia cruise, we decided to include a Rhine river cruise. In a word, the cruise was outstanding. First and foremost, our Captain, Michael was amazing. He was so engaging, approachable and so personable and shared so much knowledge of his experience cruising the European waterways. The ...

Fabulous Rhine Getaway

Wanted to sail on the Rhine River and go to The Passion Play in Oberammergau. We did a pre-cruise extension in Amsterdam. We loved Amsterdam. Such a beautiful and clean city. The canals are so picturesque both in daylight and lit up at night. On the river, Kinderdijk is quintessential Holland with its windmills. The port stops along the Rhine were so much fun. Seeing Cologne Cathedral is ...

We have wanted to do a river cruise for some time based on feedback from friends. It was everything they promised. The small boat was much more user friendly and comfortable than large ships. The ports and free excursions were interesting. The food and service was outstanding. The entire event seemed much more relaxing than an ocean cruise. The French balcony cabin was small but a large lounge ...

Having been on the Danube and the Douro, we (my husband and I) were keen to travel on another European river. The Rhine is a "busy" river so plenty to watch. And the scenery so varied - starting in the flat Netherlands, going past the Lorelei and the castles on steep hillsides, through narrow gorges, then a somewhat industrial area with factories, silos, chimneys etc, and then to wooded areas ...

The Rhine is wonderful, as is the on-board experience

I was pleasantly surprised that the Rhine was less industrial than I was expecting (having been on the Rhone and the Danube, both of which were scarred by some heavily industrial portions). I also liked the option of a leisurely excursion group. I didn't feel like we saw less but that we saw things more in depth. Instead of moving at top speed from site to site, we seemed to linger more, learn ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We signed up for this cruise in early 2020 but it was postponed due to Covid. We were finally able to schedule it for May 24, 2022. First, we spent 5 days in Holland and then we got on board the ship Viking VE on May 24. We have been to Holland and Germany on numerous occasions (never with Viking) , so we were looking forward to the second part of the trip, which would take us to Austria, ...

Fantastic cruise! Leonard, our activities director was excellent. He went on numerous excursions and kept everyone in the loop. For four busloads with a variety of people should say a lot. Leonard had next day updates before supper that were very helpful, lively and fun. Activities be tween ports were also very interesting. A glassblower who left East Germany at age 5, Lock information, ...

Viking is superb. The company treats their guests like kings and queens. Two weeks of postcard sights, terrific food, attentive crew and our host Leonard. The tours were excellent, the guides knowledgeable and our fellow passengers were fun. As an American, I wish I did this tour in my early teens. The Danube and the Rhine were breathtaking. The ships captain was an expert at maneuvering ...
