I had been to Europe and uk a few times but never to the places we visited- it was my gift to myself for retirement over 30 plus years of nursing it was wonderful- the tours were great and I feel like I almost have to do it agin because there is so much history and 5 countries in 8 days is a lot to learn and soak in- the food was excellent really great service and staff- the group of Jamaicans ...

This was our first river cruise and cruising the Danube in April was a great value and fit our schedule. Viking took care of everything from booking, travel arrangements, destination information and highlights and a wonderful ship, friendly, service-oriented crew and great experiences. The ship was immaculate, always, and very comfortable. WIth 4 levels everything was convenient and easy to ...

My brother and his wife invited us to join them and their extended family on this Danube River Cruise. We are so glad we went. We arrived in Munich 4 days before the cruise and thoroughly enjoyed the sights. While in Passau, our departure city, we had opportunity to explore it as we spent our first night on board the Viking VAR in Passau. Our embarkation went without a hitch. We were served a ...

Viking Marketing Is Their Best Department!

In Summary 1. In our opinion, Viking Cruises is more a marketing company than a holiday provider. Marketing is what they do best, full of promises, fabulous photos and presentations to make you believe you'll be travelling with the best cruise line in the World. Comparing Viking's handling of our complaint with the volume of their marketing material sent simultaneously by email and post, ...

I went on the Danube Watlz cruise in the spring 2015. This was my first river cruise. I loved many things about the cruise: the ports, the food on board, the included and the the optional excursions. The staff was excellent. The local guides were excellent. The onboard entertainment was okay. There could have been better representation of the cities visited. Vienna is known for its music ...

First the good. Viking has the best organized excursions I have ever been on. The employees were all excellent. The boat was beautiful. A river boat is the very best way to see central Europe. Next the OK. The food was OK. The advertising pictures show couples sitting at tables for 2 or 4 people. If you want a very light meal you can eat in the bar at a table for 2. But if you want a ...

Everyone who has taken a Viking Cruise raved about it so I began with very high expectations and was delighted they were met! It was luxurious to be able to unpack and stay in the same lovely room for a week. Every day, we returned from breakfast to a made up room and at night, the next day’s itinerary and other information was left on our bed. The service staff were friendly and helpful without ...

We had high expectations based on what we had read and seen regarding Viking cruises. We are happy to say that our experience was just as wonderful as we had expected. The preparations using My Viking Experience had us well prepared for our voyage and counting down the days. OUR daily newsletter when we arrived help with that as well and was a fantastic touch! The pick up at the airport was quick ...
