Wonderful Viking Cruise Duoro River Portugal

Review for Viking Hemming to Europe - River Cruise

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 ...

We chose this cruise because of interest in Portugal. From our arrival in Lisbon to our departure from the ship in Porto, Viking handled everything perfectly. Transfers were on time, Patricia ( our cruise director) was on top of everything. The hotel in Lisbon was excellent , the transportation team was the best. Once we were greeted on board the Osfrid by the ship’s crew, we felt we were ...

We always knew we wanted to take a second river cruise after our wonderful experience on the river cruise from Vienna to Amsterdam many years before. We also love Portugal after visiting the Lisbon area twice before and wanted to explore the Douro River in the north. Our experience was again more than we could have imagined. The small size of the ship and number of passengers, the staff, the ...

We traveled with another couple. Our second river cruise ever. The Douro River cruise is very different from other Viking River cruises. The Douro is very quiet. Ships can only sail at night. And there are no castles to view along the way. All your excursions take you up and away from the River. So your included and optional trips can be longer than most. And you’re not able to just get off the ...

I always wanted to see Portugal. I was not disappointed. After 2 years post covid I didn't know what to expect . I was pleasantly surprised that it was very well maintained and the crew was awsome. We we lucky the weather was warm and sunny. The tours that were included was just as awesome as two years ago. I highly recommend this trip. The Fatima tour what better than expected ...

Better land tour

We wanted to see Portugal. We would have enjoyed more time in Porto. This would have been a better land tour. Portugal doesn't lend itself to a river cruise. The staff was excellent, especially our tour guide. The food was excellent. Our plane reservations coiuld have been better. We almost didn't make our connection from Newark to Denver on the way home. We needed more time to make connections. ...

My friends and I booked this cruise before the pandemic so the trip was postponed for a couple of years. Having previously sailed on several Viking River Cruises, we were so looking forward to traveling again. While the cruise was very interesting, the daily bus trips to sites became a bit tiring. The Helgrim's staff was exceptional as was the food. All of our tour guides were very ...

Itinerary could have been better

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

I have been on numerous Viking cruises and find the service, food, and staff to always be excellent. I have no complaint about that on THIS cruise. The boat is smaller due to river constraints so the rooms are a bit smaller. Two single beds makes it really crowded. You and your companion better have a good system for 'passing' each other....or spring for a suite. One bed might make it easier ...

We have cruised many times and our first River cruise with Viking in France was very disappointing, but after a Viking Ocean Cruise which was excellent, we thought we would give Viking River Cruses another chance and we're pleased we did. The Duoro river is small so not busy, but the scenery was the real surprise, really beautiful, steep cliffs stepped with vines and olive trees which all ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We wanted to visit a place neither of us had been before. This sounded like an interesting itinerary. The food was excellent. Service was also excellent. Our time on the ship exceeded our expectations. Day trips were variable- programmed for the slowest in the group. I understand accommodating for people who are less able to walk distances, but it often felt like we were held back. We felt like ...
