Review summary

Missed 3 flight connections because Viking did not allow enough time between flights. Stuck at one Lock for 3 full days. Spent over 25 hours on busses and missed 4 tours as a result. Had to repack to change ships. Under-staffed. Service was average at best. Rooms not made up before 12:30 PM on multiple days. Poor time management, would often be 2 hours longer than told on bus trips. No exercise options, not so much as a treadmill, and even the short walking track was closed over 50% of the time. Have cruised 45 times but this was our first river cruise. Never again on Viking!

Cabin is small. Had a sewer gas smell much of the time.

Ship tip

Don't do it! Cancel and choose another river cruise line.

Arrived late at night and had to leave for the airport at 4:00 AM due to Viking scheduling early departure flight.
