I chose this cruise because my cousins booked the cruise and invited me to join them. I must admit, I was curious to find out if this was a good way to travel in Europe. This biggest complaint I have is I wished I was on the cruise longer. This was an amazing trip, with amazing staff to make our journey so wonderful. With Covid still presenting some challenges, this was handled very ...

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 ...

There is no question that Viking is the top cruise provider, and this river cruise exceeded our high expectations. Every Viking associate, on ship and on shore, was well trained, and always willing to do whatever was needed for us. Without exception. We will definitely be back! Viking’s market is couples, not families with young children. The cities visited have only limited accessibility ...

Where to start? We opted for a couple of extra days in Lisbon - what a fun city. Our visit coincided with Portugals Independence Day and St Antony’s Day. The place was buzzing. I think Lisbon would be fun at any time. It was so nice to be reminded of Portugals prominent place in world history and that we are their oldest ally. That came through very strongly. We headed to Porto to join ...

We chose this cruise because of the location. This was our 3rd cruise with Viking and we have always been satisfied. The food was not as good as it was the past 2 times. Also the service was not on point. We give them some slack because of the pandemic and the shortage of staff. However, we wanted to take an unscheduled trip to an area in Germany and the Captain “made it happen”! They ...

Enjoyed previous experience on the Danube (Prague to Budapest) wanted the try again. Ship was very comfortable and well staffed. Crew was very attentive and worked hard to ensure passengers were well taken care of. The steward who looked after our stateroom and service staff in the dining room and lounge did an exceptional job. Their attention to detail was evident in the care they exercised ...

Our cruise on the Viking Idi fulfilled a "bucket list" item and did so in extraordinary fashion, The trip down the Rhine, Main and Moselle highlighted stunning scenery. If you want castles, this voyage delivers them in spectacular fashion. We arrived a few days early to Prague in order to explore on our own. Prague is a terrific city. Youthful and vibrant. The hotel Viking selected in Prague was ...

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 ...
