Cruiser251's Past Cruises

Viking Gullveig

April 2016 - Viking Gullveig to River Cruises - Europe

Ship & Crew Great- River Cruise Bland.

The services by the Crew were outstanding.  The Ship is very well laid out, easy to get around and the stateroom is compact but comfortable. The food was good and plentiful.

The docking facility at Amsterdam was awful. It is located in an industrial area with cargo ships with no view of the City. Also in more than one instance no view was possible because other ships were joined together along side at the dock. The river(s) we traveled were along industrial corrirdors and because of the flat topographic nature of the land and lack of a narrative we never knew where we were or what if any landmarks we should have been made aware of. One of our optional tours was entitled 'Tulips and Windmills' and a promotional photo showed the historical Windmill and Tulips. It turned out to be a tour of a tulip bulb producing farm with no flowers and the windmill was a modern wind turbine.  This itinerary was not up to the 2 previous scenic Viking cruises on the Danube or Rhine.

Cruiser251's Tips

Ghent (Brugge), Belgium - A wonderful community and one of the highlights of the week. A Canal tour, Chocolates and Waffles
Keukenhof Gardens (From Amsterdam), Netherlands - Don't miss this! Should have been scheduled on the first day to set the mood for the remaining days. Outstanding beautiful huge Tulip gardens also Orchids, Roses and others presented in a most attractive well cared for instalation
Kinderdijk, Netherlands - The old Windmills are fascinating and worth seeing but are a considerable walking distance from the docking area with no supplemental transport available
Hoorn, Netherlands - Attractive town. Spent a pleasant hour with a local family for a tea. The Optional Tulips & Windmills tour was disappointing and grossly misrepresented by Viking as described earlier
Arnhem, Netherlands - The included Palace tour was okay The optional Netherlands open air museum was much better
