a non cruise cruise!!! Floating hotel by reilly97

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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

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.

PAID FOR RIVER CRUISE, GOT A BUS TOUR by DISAPOINTMENT

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

WE WERE SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS VIKING BEYLA RIVER BOAT CRUISE AS WE HAD NEVER BEEN ON A RIVER BOAT CRUISE BEFORE.  WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT.  THIS TRIP WAS DEFINITELY A BUS TOUR AS THE BOAT NEVER MOVED.  WE WERE TAKEN TO ALL OF THE TOWNS BY BUS AND QUITE OFTEN LONG TRIPS.  WE WERE TOLD THE LOW WATER CONDITION HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AND VIKING NEVER GAVE US THAT INFORMATION UNTIL 48 HOURS BEFORE OUR SCHEDULED FLIGHT. THEY SAID IT WAS POSSIBLE WE WOULD SAIL THE LAST FEW DAYS.  ON WEDNESDAY JULY 29TH WE WERE MOVED BY BUS TO THE VIKING ASTRILD WHICH WE DID NOT EXPECT.THIS MEANT PACKING & UNPACKING. THIS BOAT ALSO DID NOT MOVE.    OFFERING VOUCHERS OF $1000.00 FOR A FUTURE TRIP TO BE USED WITHIN A YEAR IS UNACCEPTABLE.  WE SHOULD GET A CASH REFUND  AS WE PAID FOR A RIVER CRUISE & GOT BUS TOURS.   AFTER THIS EXPERIENCE WE WILL NEVER RECOMMEND NOR TRAVEL WITH VIKING.

4 Viking Beyla Tips

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.
