Viking Schumann overview

The Viking Schumann is one of the most intimate river cruises one could experience. This ship features 55 comfortable outside staterooms each with amenities found one would find in a fine hotel. From the partially covered sun deck to the panoramic views of the single seating restaurant to the observation lounge, one can experience casual elegant cruising along some of the most enchanted rivers in Europe. Stop in city centers and walk off to explore the historical wonders of the destination and then retreat to the comfortable quarters as the Viking Schumann journeys onto new ports and excitement along the river.

Casual Cruising on the Elegant Elbe by Cruiser8846837

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Viking Schumann / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

The intimacy of the small ship, just enough passengers and crew/staff, makes one feel you are on a private yacht, albeit a very BIG yacht. The staff and crew were friendly, performed their duties as if they loved their jobs, and maintained the ship as well as any 5 star hotel. The dining experience was outstanding. Chef Sammy prepared beautifully presented and mouth pleasing meals. The dining staff was exceptional.

Elegant Elbe by drdeb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Schumann / Destination: Europe

Excellent food, very pleasant and attentive staff.  Boat was very clean, staterooms were nice.  Nice amenities such as bottled mineral water in staterooms, bottled water to take on excursions, local maps for each destination,  cards with contact information for the boat at each port in case you get lost or need to take a taxi back to the boat.  They have the quietbox earphones for excursions so you can hear the guides well (I really liked that). Very nice and comfortable outdoor deck area, partially shaded. I was somewhat disappointed in the scenery (mostly flat farmland).The biggest drawback was the constant stairclimbing which was necessary to get down  to dining room, up to the lobby then down to the staterooms though  I have to admit there is a chair lift but I would be embarrased to use it.

Far From Elegant by Notavikinglover

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Schumann / Destination: Europe

The ship was old, rooms were poorly decorated.  The food was very good and the bartender was fabulous.  Most of the places we visited were at odd times where we couldn't shop or if we could, we were only there for 4 hours and couldn't shop and sightsee.   Others who had been on Viking cruises thought this ship was "a dump".  Super over-priced.

Pack for casual wear. Not jean casual, more business casual. Make sure to bring 2 pairs of the most comfortable shoes you can afford.
