Chose this cruise based on our experience with the Viking Danube Cruise. Love the vessels, and the staff provided wonderful service, accommodations and dining. Included tours were excellent and just right for our physical capabilities. We had a comfortable experience and were able to enjoy each of the destinations. Our cruise director was attentive and was able to accommodate our desire for a ...

This was my second Viking River Cruise in Europe. Viking is a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for. The food and service is excellent. This is a newer boat and very well equipped. The excursions are very well organized and very fun. The optional excursions are more, and generally worth it unless you enjoy being more adventurous and taking a bit of risk. I highly recommend the ...

My husband and I have experienced several ocean cruises and really enjoyed those journeys. However, river cruising is infinitely better. The pace was slower, the time was relaxing, and the choices were plenty. I was especially struck by the beauty of the Rhine River--both the natural wonders and the architectural ones. The excursions were both complex (the size, beauty, and history of the things ...

A European river cruise was always on my bucket list. After reviewing companies, we settled on Viking because they seemed to receive the most awards and most positive reviews. Viking did not disappoint! The entire trip, from reservations to disembarkation, was phenomenal. The reservation specialists were very helpful and informative. Not pushy at all. We decided to make our air reservations ...

Overall cruse was excellent. Food was great, staff was great and friendly and helpful. Sailing experience was great. We also got ethnic food. The lounge was nice and the entertainment was good too. Site excursions were wonderful. We had air line reservations problems. We missed our connecting flight due to not enough time in layover. We had hard time to reschedule the flight. Our confirmation ...

This was the first cruise my wife and i have ever taken. It just never seemed like the right time to take a long trip. I will never regret taking the chance and it has opened up an array of possibilities going forward for us. The ship, Crew and guests on our trip were outstanding. The excursions, Especially the bike ones were the best part of the trip. Busy, but relaxing. Just the right amount of ...

My husband and I chose this cruise as our 25th wedding anniversary gift to each other. I have always wanted to go to Germany and see the homeland of my parents. Viking Cruises made this a memorable trip in many ways. The entire crew of the Gersemi was very professional and welcoming. I was especially impressed with the Hotel Manager knowing our names on the second day and with the captain of the ...

We chose the cruise because it was time to get back out there after the pandemic, plus the offer of free airfare was a contributing factor. We had never traveled with Viking but of course had heard of them. When we booked our tour, we didn't realize that there was only 1 elevator on the ship, from the main floor to the second floor. We knew we had a tiny room but the 14 stairs to go up for meals ...

We chose this cruise because of our previous experience with Viking. Staff, food, accommodations, excursions - everything was wonderful. We loved the excursions we chose, especially the Alsatian wine tasting. The winemaker/owner was fantastic and he provided a wonderful selection of wines for us to taste. The Colmar World War II excursion in France/Germany was quite moving. The Dine in ...
