Boat was good and clean. Food was good, many different choices. Most employees nice and helpful. Activities. DO NOT GO IF YOU CANT WALK FAR. Everything is a good distance away, even to get on a bus..the joke on the bus was (everyone told us 15 minutes). Bus rides and walking were way longer than that. No snacks after dinner….Not even at the bar… COVID test had to be at the desk ...

Christmas markets Rhine cruise - Incredible Experience

We had done several Viking river and ocean cruises but had wanted to experience the Christmas Markets. The trip met and exceeded our expectations! Viking, as always, has the best service but the crew were especially excited since this was their next to last trip of the season. Then they return home until April. The ship was fully decorated to embrace the season. And the food choices also reflected ...

This was our third Viking River cruise(Danube followed by China in 2012) which we booked to travel the Rhine at Christmas Markets time.The ship,cabins,excursion buses,guides,all met our expectations when compared to our previous Viking cruises but the food service was much below the level we had come to expect. The lunch and dinner menus lacked variety,the soups mostly cream based seldom ...

I’ve wanted to experience a river cruise for quite a while! The crew & staff were outstanding, the food was exquisite & the cooks were very accommodating for my dietary needs! The shore experiences along the Rhine were marvelous! I so enjoyed the walks through the towns along the Rhine! The town folk were friendly & very accommodating! There were more activities than could be done in one journey ...

This adventure was over the top. The staff was excellent in serving the guests. Every detail of the trip was superbly executed. I would do it again. The shore excursions were well plans and guided for specific group levels. Free time for shopping was giving usually at the end of each shore excursion. Meals on ship were great, service great, and the food was great. There was always a good variety ...

Liked the idea of a smaller cruise. with less than 200 people,we got to know alot of the travelers. the staff was excellent. very friendly and personnel. they seemed to get to know the passengers and ...

We wanted to travel with a group from AAA of South Jersey and this trip was a perfect match. All of the arrangements were taken care of for us by AAA and Viking River Cruises. The Viking Eir is a beautiful ship that provided us with excellent food, very good nightly entertainment, excellent staff, and wonderful shore excursions. We were very impressed that the staff members were so friendly ...

The beauty and the history was the leading factor. I chose Viking because of the stellar reviews. The food was not as elegant as I expected. I probably was looking for more of richness of the French since we did sail on a river in France. The wines were all in good taste and I did enjoy trying a new one with dinner each evening. The on shore excursions were great. The towns visited were ...

Myself and friend booked this holiday over a year in advance and was looking forward to this for a long time so I can't help feeling then that the holiday itself was very anti-climactic. We opted for getting the eurostar from London to Amsterdam and this part was smooth and enjoyable. We arrived in Amsterdam on time but minus the person who was meant to meet us. Using Google and common sense ...

Rhine River experiences. Kept seeing the river ships sailing on PBS stations and wanted to see the sights in person. Every aspect of the trip was exactly what we wanted to experience. All the staff on the ship were excellent. We felt very well taken care of. Our friends who we were traveling with did not get a wheelchair because another person had fallen and needed the wheelchair. Therefore ...
