Viking Beyla overview

Accommodating only 190 lucky guests and built specifically to navigate the Elbe River, the Viking Beyla is the perfect ship for cruising the wondrous cities and towns along this historic region. Unpack once, then settle in to the quiet elegance of your floating hotel; start the day with a delicious breakfast in the restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views, take an excursion, a guided walk, or simply explore on your own. Share stories with newfound friends over a glass of wine on the Aquavit Terrace, or just relax on the Sun Deck as the world floats peacefully by during this most magical cruise.

a non cruise cruise!!! Floating hotel by reilly97

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Beyla / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

This cruise never was a cruise; low water prevented the ships from cruising and Viking never got in touch with us as they had an incorrect email address but they did not take the extra effort to call us and ask us if we wanted to cancel. We only found out when we arrived at the hotel in Prague. The "cruise" required us to change ships halfway through the trip and all travel was by bus - instead of leisurely cruising on the Elbe; Staff worked hard to compensate but there really is no way to compensate. Horrible experience even though some of the tours were really good but several were very poor.

Lovely River with an element of risk by loragood8402895

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Beyla / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

I would recommend this cruise with the knowledge that at certain times of year you are taking a risk that the water levels may be too low. We missed Decin for this reason but fortunately, we had no further problems. The Elbe is a beautiful river with very little traffic. We felt like we had it to ourselves.

Ship is new and clean. Staff is professional and cordial. But not being able to cruise was very disappointing. Original itinerary was altered. Bus rides were too long. Viking corporate staff should be ashamed of themselves.
