Fun, but not worth the money by Cruiser86566859

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Viking Kara / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

Great stops and guides but poor customer service. Not worth the money spent. Will probably use a different river line in the future.

Good cruise, won't be using Viking again though by mlc1

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

The cruise was very nice and the service incredible. We won't be taking another Viking cruise because of how they handle expenses and credits on board. Your credits are converted to US dollars but the expenses aren't converted and only relabeled as euros so you wind up with paying more for what would have been an even exchange. That's Viking's policy. Example - $300 on board credit is reduced to 264 euros. $300 cost for excursion becomes 300 euros instead of being converted to actual euros, it's just relabeled. You wind up paying $36 US additional due to the way they handle the onboard invoice. In the future we will go with another cruise line.

This was our first cruise and Viking lived up to its hype. The ship, the crew, and the meals were totally first rate.

Pick a cabin in the middle of the ship, not to far back, not too far forward.
