From the start: 1. Corinthian Hotel, Prague - quite a distance from city center, old bed with springs coming though, price for 2-night extension through Viking was $399 per person, price per room through hotel was $100 per night, rude employees, kept requesting toilet paper but ultimately had to take from public WC in lobby. 2. Ship - Booked a balcony room and when our luggage was brought to the room the attendant told us to make sure we didn't open the doors to the balcony because it would let in all the spiders. On two occasions, the ship did not dock were it was supposed to dock and on one occasion we were tied up to another Viking ship whereby our balcony was connected to a french balcony on the other ship which blocked all sunlight during daylight hours. All night, heard voices and the ships rubbing together. Additionally, the river had 44 locks (which was never divulged in any cruise docs) whereby the entire view was a concrete wall which the ship constantly bumped. The sun deck was closed for almost the entirety of the cruise. Food was terrible. One night there was a semi-coiled wire with a sharp edge in the onion soup. 3. Excursions - included excursions required extreme, long walking distances and are not suitable for people with ANY mobility issues. Some tour guides were rude, especially a guide in Cochem that yelled at a traveler that she was too slow and he would not let her continue on the castle tour and town tour. He embarrassed this person so much she was literally in tears. 4. Transport from ship to Paris - Required sitting on a cramped bus for 10 hours. Made a stop in Luxembourg, but again not at the scheduled stop, creating a very long walk to town. The bus would not allow anyone to stay on, so a passenger was forced to sit on a bench at the bus stop for more than 2 1/2 hours because she was unable to walk the more than a mile distance into town. Bus driver further caused complications when he unnecessarily parked as far away as possible from rest stops, etc. Total lack of consideration. 5. Paris - beautiful city, but the hotel Viking uses is lacking. Our view from our room was the loading dock for the hotel. Viking's lack of respect for passengers was shocking. They are not upfront in their advertising. They are overpriced, overrated and insensitive. Viking may be the most advertised river cruise company, but it is certainly not the best. Also note, there really isn't any entertainment or activities on board, so if you have any mobility issues that preclude you from walking more than a mile or two, your trip will be a very boring experience. I would never sail Viking again. Read Less

My husband wanted to go back to the Motherland of Hungary. We heard that Prague was a very beautiful city and we were not disappointed. With Germany and Austria in-between it was a Cruise perfect for what we were looking for. Season was perfect with many of the tourists back to work and the weather cooperated whereas it was not to hot. The Staff on the ship was sensational and could not do enough to make the trip an exceptional experience. The food was perfect not overboard, but plentiful. Our room was very cozy and warm but everyone should get the full size sliding door to get the full effect of the beautiful scenery seen along the way. All shore trip excursions were well planned and organized to get the most out of the cities that were visited. Night time was for relaxing and making new friendships with a cocktail or two! The cruise was priced right. We are currently trying to plan our next Viking Trip! Read Less

Viking made the whole process easy and seamless from our arrival in Prague to our departure from Paris. The cruise director was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, entertaining--both fun and funny! The on-board service was outstanding throughout the ship. The reception desk staff went above and beyond to repair an item of my husband's that had been damaged in transit. And the dining room staff were very attentive and greeted us by name by the second day on-board. I enjoyed the itinerary which traversed 3 rivers through Germany as we went from Prague to Paris. The Middle Rhine is so scenic to cruise, with 35 castles dotting both sides of that stretch of the river. The view from the top deck was perfect, along with informative commentary and warm blankets to snuggle in against the chilly morning air! The included excursions were excellent, especially Bamburg, Cochem, and the not-to-be-missed Bishop's Residenz in Wurzburg. With one exception, the tour guides were fantastic (she was good, but a bit dry). Although the bus trip into Paris was long, the stop in Luxembourg City was a bonus, especially the American Cemetery, which is beautiful, historical, and very moving. Read Less

Viking has come a long way since we started river cruising. The new river boats are sleek and comfortable. Food is good but not wow! Gourmet dinning is really just a `love boat:" fantasy on most cruises. and has disappeared along with the Midnight Buffet. The food is good and plentiful but we have down graded our expectations a long time ago. What is striking is how efficient Viking is at coordinating your cruise, flights, and tours. Very smooth. I would rank them now up there with AMA and Uniworld. Despite the low water levels, they managed to complete the cruise as planned.. My only disappointment was the short stay in Paris on the Prague to Paris cruise. The crew was very good and the restaurant staff very attentive. On board entertainment was fun consisting of glass blowers, opera singers, and lectures which were well done. Alcohol prices were very reasonable. Read Less

The main problem was that there was insufficient water in the Elbe to cruise. Viking knew this well in advance and should have given us the opportunity to cancel and receive a refund. They also changed hotels after they confirmed our booking. Instead of the Marriott in downtown Prague, it was changed to the Corinthia in the suburbs. Not a good hotel and had to get the metro to go into Prague. Had to bus from Czech Republic to Germany to board the boat due to low water levels. Spent 4 hours total cruising the river. The rest of the time we were bussed everywhere. We had to pack and were bussed to the termination point of the cruise to transfer to the sister ship as that was stuck in the port. No compensation from Viking. they didn't even offer to comp drinks. This was our trial of Viking for future ocean and river cruising. Thy failed miserably. It was not Viking's fault that the river levels were low but they took our money KNOWING that they were not going to provide a river cruise. If we wanted a bus tour of Europe we would have booked one. Viking will never have us again as customers and I would advise people to be very wary. Read Less

We chose the cruise because of the cities we were visiting and the brochure which spoke to some education regarding the history. The service was wonderful. Food was good but definitely not exceptional . I like the concept of have beverages available during the dinner and lunch. The lounge was very comfortable and the front deck, when the sun came out ,was fantastic. It was a bit cool during the first half of the cruise so the top deck was not available. That and the locks prevented the top deck from being open. For the most part, the ship was lovely and very well attended to. Due to the brochures prior to the trip I expected more discussion regarding the city and the surrounds to be visited next, prior to the each excursion. There were announcements each evening prior to dinner, however the dialog was very difficult to comprehend/understand due to linguistics etc.With the only information to come was from the tour guides and the crowds of the excursion it became impossible to keep together and hear clearly what the guide was saying. The connection upon arriving at the airport was great and very organized. However the announcements prior to the first excursion were unclear and consequently we missed the first one we paid for and got on the wrong shuttle bus. For the staff standing on the stairs in lobby of the hotel and shouting out "instructions for the next event it was impossible to comprehend instructions with large groups of people and poor organization in that instance. The departure in Paris was quite different - it was a real nightmare with not nearly enough help at the airport. Our flight was canceled so we were hustled to another flight, but left with little an to no assistance. We were delivered to a little room for assistance but had no idea why and little knowledge of how to get to our plain. As it was we almost missed our flight causing a great deal of stress in an unfamiliar airport and staff who kept telling us we had to wait in line for a wheel chair which we did not need. The staff had no idea why we were left in a room with one service person (who spoke little Eng) and waiting for help. Viking really missed the mark on this issue as it was way to close to being a disaster for my us as well as another couple who were in the same predicament. Often the excursions were not given enough information regarding the difficulty walking etc. Quite often we got half way into a tour and found out we would not be capable to completing (i.e the Castle and Trier) We got up to the castle and then were told that the climb would be far too difficult for my spouse, so we could do nothing but sit and wait for all to complete the tour.

So many people had recommended taking a Viking cruise and now I know why! I can't think of anything that would have made this trip more enjoyable . . . From the embarkation to the disembarkation hotel rooms everything was wonderful! The accommodations on board were VERY nice - comfy bed & pillows and I loved having my morning coffee on my veranda. The food was delicious and the wine served with the meals was wonderful. Loved that the did a German night so we could sample all sorts of German fare complete with beer and a band! Our waiters and waitresses were very attentive and I was given special attention by the chef due to my lactose intolerance. The tours were informative & I like how there are at least 2 if not 3 different tours for each port depending on how much you wanted to walk or ride. What a wonderful way to learn about history!! The scenery on the Elbe was magnificent and with the smaller river, the scenery on both shores was so close. I booked another Viking tour as soon as I got home! Read Less

The Lounge on these long ships is my favorite place to be while on board. The atmosphere is lovely and changes throughout the day. The mornings are quiet, mid-day the casual lunch buffet is wonderful and picks up the pace and after dinner, the mood is lively. In the late afternoons, I love bringing my book and getting a coffee and a bit of a cookie and sitting by the window in the lounge, watching the enchanting countryside float by. We had looked into taking this cruise later in the summer and after pricing the trip decided to wait to book. A few days later we received an email that offered a 2 for 1 special with free air fare booking a "standard" room. We were delighted with the value of the trip but I was very skeptical about the accommodations. We booked the trip and traveled soon thereafter. The ship was smaller than the other long ships we had been on. It was delightful! The Standard Room was spacious, bright and beautiful. The money we saved made it possible for us to book several extra excursions and we were delighted. Read Less

I wanted to visit Prague and Berlin as well as Wittenberg...not disappointed. Great hotels, ship staff and food were excellent. Enjoyed included excursions, and my granddaughter was so excited to see this part of the world. Very pleased;l had travelled Viking previously, and am considering an ocean voyage with tthem next. Some wasted time awaiting transfer to ship in Prague and again on another transfer. Our cruise director (EVA) was excellent in every way. She was pleasant, professional, and was available and helpful!! Some confusion about drinks that were included, but no worries...wine was plentiful. Resaurants visited in various ports such as Potsdam and Berlin were very good. Both hotel stays were very good!! With the exception of one, all guides were superb!!! Very knowledgeable and friendly!!! Buses were comfortable and all excursions were timely. Sad to see/hear of danger of pickpockets!! An experience of that occurred at the airportt in Berlin....fortunately just an observer; I was lucky!!! Read Less

Often when you look forward too much to a trip it doesn't live you to your expectations. This cruise more than met my high bar - it was exceptional. I can't think of anything I would change other than the fact that we tried to pack too much into our trip and didn't let ourselves just ENJOY the experience. Take a little time, don't over schedule, let the beauty of this part of the world just soak in. The cruise staff was fantastic, our cabin well appointed, we especially enjoyed the dining area on the front deck - not always eating in the main dining room. Our guides on our excursions were extremely knowledgeable and open about the past these countries have had to endure. I have been to Germany many times and this is the first time I have heard them discuss their past openly. I can't recommend anything more highly than this river cruise. Read Less

My 3rd Viking River Cruise. Just booked a Viking Ocean cruise to Australia/Tasmania/New Zealand for Jan 20, 2020. I must have liked the cruise from Prague to Budapest if I'm booking another so soon. I'm not crazy about the size of the rooms, but we spend very little time acually in the room. The greatest plus on these cruises is the crew. There is nothing they won't do to make your experience excellent. The bar and wait staff work very hard and make a point to remember names and likes/dislikes. There are no broadway shows or casinos, but there is plenty to keep you busy. Everyone finds another couple onboard that you have something in common with... By the second day, you will recognize at least half the passengers and will "pair up" with one or more other couples. Most passengers are quite financially stable and most are retired. You'll have a lot in common with most if you can afford these cruises. The meals are excellent. They are not stingy with beer or wine during meals and the bar has an excellent selection of fine wines; many from the country you're traveling through. Our cabin steward was excellent and we always felt safe on board and during the daily tours. You should at least try one cruise, maybe a modest cabin and up your choices on your 2nd cruise. I really believe that you'll have fun and enjoy the people you'll meet. Read Less

We choose the Elegant Elbe because of the cities we would see, the days before and after in Prague and Berlin, and also because we wanted to see this part of Europe. Since we had already had one Viking River Cruise, we knew we wanted to cruise with them again...our first trip, two years ago was also amazing. One of the best things about cruising with Viking are the friendships we made on the trip. The meals were delicious--loved the many choices, too. At mealtimes, there was plenty of time to get acquainted with others on the boat. It was nice not having seating assignments, and also having the choice of where to eat...we enjoyed having breakfast on the Acquivet Terrace and watching the scenery as we ate. The crew members on the ship were also very accommodating---everyone made sure that all we having a good, but safe time, too. Read Less

We chose this itinerary because besides Prague, we had not been to any of the other places and had heard good things about it. The cruise itself was good, did not get to spend much time in any of the places we visited while on the boat and would have liked to have had a bit more free time on shore after the excursions. We have traveled on 2 other prior cruises with Viking and absolutely loved everything about it. This go, the food was sub-par, we were told they ran out of certain foods, like the steak on the everyday menu and would not be getting anymore. Service in the dining room was mostly non-existent, if you were served one glass or wine, beer or soda, no more was offered unless you tracked them down, or did as I did and walked over to the shelf and poured my own. For those who travel with Viking, you know how attentive the service is normally. I believe the staff in the dining room had checked out since this was the last cruise of the season. Our cabin was spotless and very comfortable, I did miss the heated tile floor, but the young lady that took care of our floor was just wonderful and very kind. The reception area was also wonderful, very friendly. Really liked the captain, he was very social the entire cruise. The excursions were absolutely fabulous. We were very impressed with the majority of them. We will be going on another cruise with Viking, just hoping to not have a repeat of the not that great of food. Read Less

This was my first cruise and it appealed to me because I wanted to see as much as possible with a group of friends. I did not want to organize anything or unpack. I am not interested in swimming, big shows or getting dressed up. This river cruise was perfect. The City of Light is part bus and mostly ship. I was able to see both Prague and Paris on this trip. Every sight along the rivers was gorgeous! The included tours were fantastic. The food on board offered a huge variety. I did not gain weight because I chose to not eat desserts each day. You don’t eat all day! You visit sights. There were things for people to do who did not have the stamina. Dining was always informal. Some people changed for dinner, most wore casual clothes or what they wore during the day. The evening entertainment was light and fun! Some nights we listened to music, other nights we danced. Many people went to bed. You make it whatever you want. I am looking forward to my next Viking Cruise. It sure sold me. Read Less

We chose this cruise never having been to these parts of Europe. Our parents had done many Viking cruises and always gave them high scores. Every detail was covered and it was nice to be so well taken care of in every aspect. The food aboard was truly excellent with plenty of choices. Staff was genuinely gracious and knowledgeable. The guides on shore tours were so willing to share their passion for their places and often included little interesting tidbits to enhance the experiences. Shipboard entertainment was fun and definitely created friendships among passengers. I would go on a Viking River Cruise again. I'm not one for the large cruise ships so this was perfect. I was impressed that provisions were always made for passengers with special needs or diminished ability to walk or climb especially at Bad Schandu where there was a lot of stairs. The exercise was invigorating after indulging in the breakfast buffet! Lovely to be greeted at the airport by the Viking Cruise staff in signature red jackets. They have really covered all the details from start to finish. Read Less

Chose the Elbe River cruise because not as high traffic as Rhine or Danube. Plus we're Lutheran and we were to stop in Wittenberg 9 days before the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Prague fabulous at the beginning; Berlin equally fabulous at the end. Of course Wittenberg was special. However, my highlight was Dresden. I was fascinated by the way the city was painstakingly & authentically reconstructed. Beautiful, particularly the Marienkirche! Food was extraordinary both onboard and on shore. Particularly enjoyed touring the museum in Prague with the seated luncheon and the live chamber music. And the onboard variety evening with Katy Luther and her dear friend Barb Cranach was a hoot! What else to say? we stayed in luxurious 5 star hotels in both the hearts of Prague and Berlin. Conveniently within walking distance of most of the sights. Accessible & not too strenuous. Finally, particularly enjoyed our cruise director... great sense of humor! Read Less

We chose this cruise as my grandmother was born in Prague. We liked the idea of a small ship with fewer passengers than an ocean cruise. Our first 2 days in Prague were exceptional with a wonderful walking tour with our guide Charlie. We then enjoyed plenty of time on our own to explore the city. Everything went smoothly from being met at the airport and transported to the hotel where Claudia Diederix our tour director met us and stayed with us through to Berlin. She was organized, knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor and made our time exceptional. The Beyla was a small ship. The cabins were small but efficient and comfortable. Janos, the hotel manager, was delightful with a wonderful sense of humor. The food was outstanding, something for all different palates, beautifully presented and plentiful. We enjoyed listening to Robert the piano player. The shore excursions (some tour guides were better than others) were very educational and we were happy to use the Quiet Vox so we did not miss anything said by the guide. All of the crew were outstanding and worked together like a well oiled machine. They worked tirelessly and made for a great cruise. We enjoyed getting to know them. We would recommend Viking River Cruises and hope to take another one. Read Less

We wanted a river cruise for the relaxing and interesting experience. The Viking cruise on the Elbe River did meet our expectations as to interesting ports and a relaxing cruise. However although the quality of the ship, the Cruise director and ship service staff were wonderful, the cruise did not meet our expectations on a couple of issues. The entertainment on ship was not the best. We had two classical concerts that although technically excellent were quite boring. There was not enough variation and the music tended to be very low key. We also had a talk from an individual on the Russian occupations that was very poor and tedious. You should reevaluate on ship entertainment. The Folkloric Dance and Dinner outing was excellent and provided a good example of local talent and culture. Wine provided at meals was good but pretty much did not change. Drinking the same wine choices (white and red) every day was poorly designed and appeared to be a cost saver for Viking. You should offer better wines and more choices. Food was generally very good but there was one meal that I found at best mediocre. That was the German night. It was a buffet and I for one did not get a serving that was edible although I tried twice. Read Less

Everything about Viking from the initial booking through to departure is first class all the way. What better way is there to spend 10 days being pampered, well fed with Michelin Star food in great company. We try to find fault but impossible. Again made great friends with Americans and English fellow passengers. Never short of a conversation, Trump, Brexit etc. Rik's Music Quiz was a real onboard highlight. We teamed up with 4 delightful American friends, Jamie, Cheryl, Joe and Beth. As 'Allied Forces' Team name, Although a bit rowdy at times, fantastic fun. We annihilated the opposition. We achieved the highest number of points any team had achieved for a long time. A glass of bubbly to celebrate our victory was well deserved. Next cruise to Vietnam/Cambodia already booked with Viking for November 2018. Booking so far in advance ensures we get the cabin and cruise we want. The only small complaint I would have is cruises are booked up immediately the new brochure is out, if not before. We have 2 additional cruises next year with other lines. We are hoping to slot in another Viking cruise, this time an ocean destination in between. Most of them are fully booked already. A great attraction is that Viking offer £100.00 cruise vouchers worth double at the time of booking. There is no restriction with other offers. These possess an indefinite validity and can be given as presents. We always indulge in these purchases. Read Less

We wanted to go to Eastern Europe and visit the main cities on the Danube River Cruise. It was our first river cruise and we hope it won’t be our last. The whole crew and service was wonderful.

Two other couples were in our party and we met so many other nice people on the boat. We were really glad we signed up for the extensions in Prague and Budapest. Both are beautiful cities.

We chose this particular tour both for its starting point in Prague, which allowed us to return to a city we loved, as well as the opportunity it offered to journey through parts of Germany familiar through history but outside of our previous travel routes. We were not disappointed! The stay in Prague was enhanced by the.Viking offerings of music and local insight. We were so pleased to be able to embark the ship in Decin and cruise on as scheduled, because of recent rains and thus the raised water levels. Hiking in the stunning Bad Schandau bluffs, marveling at the beauty of Dresden, walking through the remarkable Reformation streets in Wittenberg— the list of adventures goes on! And this doesn’t even include the ongoing transformation we saw in Berlin, our fellow passengers on the ship or the terrific crew. Claudia, our Activities Director, made us smile every day! Our Captain was terrific. Janos, our Hotel services director, was excellent! Joseph and Arturo, from the Philippines, were so helpful and attentive to us in the dining room.

We chose this cruise to visit a part of Germany we hadn't been to previously. The scenery was beautiful throughout the cruise, and the tours at each stop were packed with interesting information and wonderful sites. Mingling with the locals was fun and we were able to enjoy the local food while touring and on the cruise ship. Our cabin was very comfortable and the dining and common areas of the ship were pleasant and comfortable. We really enjoyed meeting with our fellow passengers and sharing experiences. We were especially thrilled at how helpful the crew and staff were! My husband has mobility issues and everyone was so willing to help, even when we were managing fine on our own. This made the trip so much more comfortable and enjoyable! Near the end of the trip, we had an equipment failure with out travel wheelchair, and the ship's engineer was able to complete a temporary repair to get us through the rest of the trip - this was above and beyond our expectations! This was our third Viking cruise, and we plan to travel with Viking many more times! Read Less

I love Viking - it is the best river cruise company! The service is unbelievable - the staff seems to know your name after the first day! They can't do enough for you. The food is amazing - The German Food night was on point - I am very persnickety about German Food and this was just like having a meal with the German Relatives! The food is always delicious - there is always a nice variety - and even if you don't want exactly what they are offering, they will accommodate you. They truly want you to have a wonderful dining experience. The itinerary is perfect for all activity levels - I am not the best walker and I appreciate that they always offer a Leisure Walking Tour - it is definitely always at my pace. I could go on one EVERY year - in fact, I think my husband and I plan to do just that! It is such a no-hassle trip where you get to see so much! Your hotel just follows along with you - no packing and unpacking - it is perfect! Read Less

We choose the cruise because of Wittenberg and the 500 Reformation anniversary. We enjoyed all ports and tours especially Prague and Berlin. Food on ship was fantastic especially the dinners. Our cruise director was fantastic. She went out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly even walking with us to show us where a restaurant was in Berlin. One one the best things Viking does is provide local guides. The guide in Prague grew up there and lived through the change from the Soviet Union to independence. He knew the history of the Czech Republic extremely well. The guide in Berlin grew up in East Berlin with family in West Berlin. She had personal information about the end of World War 2, the division of The city and life under the Sovietts. She also lived through the reunification of Germany. It was a wonderful experience. The guide in Wittenberg knew the history of the Reformation and made us feel like we were there. We have already booked our next Viking adventure. Read Less

We had gone on several ocean cruises, but not on Viking. We decided to try a river cruise. We loved it!!! Many of our friends recommended Viking and we can understand shy. Our pre and post ports and hotels were very nice and in good locations. We were able to access restaurants and shops easily before and after being on the river. The Viking staff in Prague and Paris took very good care of us! Having someone meet you at the airport was very helpful and stress relieving. They answered all our questions and displayed lots of patience. The service on the ship from the cruise director, office staff, room steward and wait staff was outstanding.
