I have done this cruise before in December of 2011 for the Christmas markets. We had such a great experience that we wanted to do this cruise again in a different season. We were not disappointed. The excursions were just as enjoyable and the weather was perfect for those days that we were just sailing on the Rhine. Very relaxing! Highly recommend. Crew was professional and very personable. Our ...

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 ...

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 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 chose this cruise due to our budget constraints as well as what was being offered by Viking. It was an incredible deal and worth every penny! We would highly recommend doing this cruise. From flight itinerary to the cruise itself, Viking did an incredible job. Excursion-wise we were very happy with the guides (all were local). The radio headsets were rather impressive: good range and never ...

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 ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a trip on the Rhine. The trip balanced well-led excursions and free time. Meals were superb with variety and options. The crew was outstanding - always helpful and friendly. Testing for COVID and on-board protocols were efficient, non-invasive and easily handled. The trip started with 1.5 days in Paris where lunch and dinner were on your own. The Paris ...

This was my 3rd Viking cruise and my wife's 6th. Overall, it was fabulous. The cruise director, Edina, was so very helpful and her tour of Budapest at night was a highlight. Maître d Martina was a joy - the food on this cruise was superb - a cut above the already superior Viking cuisine. The destinations were also wonderful as were the guides in each destination - Achim in Vienna, Ester in ...

This was our second Viking cruise. We were met as expected at Basel airport by the Viking representative and we were shown the bus to take us to the ship. Upon arrival at the ship safety measures were evident. We did a Covid test prior to being escorted to our stateroom. There was a requirement to submit saliva samples every morning for 3 days. Masks were to be worn on board and during excursions ...

Incredible history along the Nile

This river cruise along the Nile is amazing, with excursions visiting sites over 4000 years old. This is an area with tremendous history. While there may be other companies doing Nile River cruises, Viking is special in that they make a great effort to know every guest, and to accommodate their needs. There is nothing in this review about COVID because the policies are changing ...
