Beautiful River, Great Food, Great Staff,Lots of Time on Buses, and Disappointing Wine

The Douro River is famous port and wine country. Unfortunately Viking has a very poor provider of Portuguese wine to complement the fabulous food they serve. This is a wine country cruise and we expected to be treated with excellent Portuguese wine. We were a party of eight who all had the silver wine package--the included wines in the package were either undrinkable or mediocre. We opened ...

We chose this cruise because we were wanting to see Portugal and had planned a trip on both ends of the cruise. we have only been on mostly ocean cruises, but have been to China and Vietnam on their river cruises and land tours. Those ships are totally different from a normal river cruise ship. This was one of the smallest ships due to the size of the river and small locks. It was a bare ...

We have been on two cruises with Viking and had high expectations of the food, accommodation and hospitality of the employees. In particular the waiters and waitresses are the back bone of the tour and they never let us down - particularly Ana and her husband Kaio. The downside of this particular cruise was nothing to do with the boat, accommodation or the staff but every tour outside the boat ...

Booked this cruise as a fill in while on board the Viking star. Portugal is a gem to visit. Lisbon is a wonderful city. Our cruise director PATRICIA was absolutely amazing. Her knowledge and energy rubbed off on all the crew and passengers and without her I dare say the cruise would have been more mundane. She was down one tour guide and was doing double duty as cruise director and tour ...

This was a marvelous relaxing cruise. The service was impeccable. The crew made us feel welcome at every turn. The land excursions were good, but there was one that just didn't have much content. However, all in all, it was exactly what we were looking for. The starting land pre-tour in Lisbon was wonderful and we tacked on an additional pre-tour in Spain that was also managed by Viking. The ...

April 2022 - My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (24+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our fifth river cruise on Viking. Our Douro River Cruise started in Lisbon, Portugal on April 4, 2022. We took the pre-cruise option. This was our first trip out of the USA since 2019. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early so we could enjoy Lisbon ...

Three friends and I chose this trip to see Portugal and enjoy the culture and people. We were not disappoined. All shore excursions were wonderful, and we took full advantage of the pre-cruise extra nights in Lisbon. We asked locals and tour guides for restaurant recommendations and were very pleased with all of them, several of which were fairly close to our Lisbon hotel. Do sit at an outdoor ...

This was our first river cruise, though we have done several ocean cruises. The ships on the Douro are very small, ours had a maximum of 106 passengers, but only 87 were onboard. There is one dining room, and everyone eats at the same time. Tours are included, so everyone tours at the same time. I read another review that described river cruising as a bus tour on water, and that is really what ...

My husband and I enjoyed our latest Viking trip on the Douro River in Portugal. The Tivoli hotel in Lisbon was first class and set the tone for the trip. The crew of the Hemming was attentive, the food delicious and the excursions were interesting and fun. Unfortunately for me, I tested positive for COVID and missed the last excursion due to quarantine rules. My husband and I spent the day in ...

The crew, as always, were very attentive & helpful. My husband uses a wheelchair, & we know before starting, that he won’t be able to partake in all the excursions, but he likes being on the ship! The meals & wine were outstanding. We also did the pre-cruise extension in Madrid & the post-cruise extension Road to Santiago, which were very interesting. We’d been to Madrid before, so we wanted ...
