Wonderful Experience

Review for Viking Mani to Europe - River Cruise

We chose this river cruise as it allowed us to experience the German Christmas Markets in Rudesheim, Koblenz, and Cologne. This was our second Viking cruise and was as great as the first one 5 years ago that sailed the Danube. Our stateroom was the Explorer Suite which has a separate living room area from the bedroom. Bathroom had heated floor and large shower. In relative terms for a river ...

Portugal is a beautiful country, and a river cruise is a great way to do it. The Viking Hemming crew was exceptional, the tour guides were very enlightening and the travel in the Mercedes bus to the off-river sites was extremely comfortable. No complaints at all. We found the food to be excellent, and the servings were perfectly apportioned. The wait staff was very courteous and brought us ...

A friend asked if a few friends wanted to join she and her husband on this trip a year ahead of travel time. Being stuck inside with covid we said yes. Every detail was handled by Viking as time led up to the trip. Once on board every detail was thought about and we had a fantastic time. We were not sure if we would like river cruising, but loved every minute. The service was impeccable , the ...

I’ve always wanted to do a river cruise to experience the small ship intimacy. The personal service is exceptional, the food is 5 star excellence. The extra appetizers and pastries went above and beyond my expectations There is attention to every detail. The guests are pampered and spoiled. The ports are interesting and the tour guides invested and well informed. This is the experience of a ...

Not up to Viking Standards

Review for Viking Egil to Europe - River Cruise

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

As we had river cruised with Viking previously, we expected a top-notch cruise experience. Overall, we had an enjoyable time, but there were several events that, in my opinion, were not up to Viking standards. First, after a day of cruising, we wanted to relax in the lounge with a few drinks before dinner. Each night, the program director would get on the microphone and give a long, detailed ...

We Chose Viking because we heard a lot of positive comments about Viking. They really do care about your experience. The cruise was great except we did not realize how many locks we would encounter (lots of noise and bumps while cruising - especially at night). Food was quite good and staff most accommodating. Entertainment was not that great -- the best was music trivia night. Generally, it ...

I traveled with friends who had already researched, selected this week on the Mani. I had never been on a river cruise so relied on my friends and their recommendation. Was NOT disappointed! Basel to Amsterdam was delightful...loved the itinerary. Water level was perfect, weather was beautiful! The Mani crew was so professional....making sure every minute met my expectations!! ...

This was our second cruise and a great one! Our first cruise on another ship carrier down the Danube was interesting and not great because the owner of the company was on board and wanted all the staff to take extra care of him! We were told by our friends to try Viking and they were correct about the care the crew took of all their guests. Loved the ship, the food, the service, housekeeping ...

Review for Viking Einar to Europe - River Cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first cruise ever, and we had a blast. We had arranged an extension trip beforehand, so we flew into Zürich where a Viking driver awaited to take us to Lucerne. We spent two nights in that beautiful city (in the same hotel where Mark Twain once stayed) and were guided by our excellent guide Katarina. We were then driven on a Viking bus to Basel and boarded the Einar. We stopped at ...
