Great experience even though we never got our luggage. Viking staff was extremely helpful. We booked through BJ’s travel and had a wonderful travel agent, Andrea Whitby.

A very special fairytale Rhine river cruise! by lorybgreen

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

After a long research on river cruising, we booked in October of 2021 and our sail date was May 10, 2022 on the Viking Sigyn. To our surprise, the total amount was due 6 months prior to sailing. We decided it was time for us to take the plunge and continue our traveling adventures despite Covid still impacting the world. We could not be happier with our choice as it proved to be one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken. Viking selected our flights from Orlando, Florida to Basel then returned from Amsterdam. This was also a great experience as I was researching flights and found that they had the best prices. It added a leg to the journey but we were so excited to start the trip that it did not seem to really matter to us. We chose to do our own 3 days pre and post cruise and paid the extra $ 100 per fare to schedule our flights to accommodate the trip. This was an exceptional time of the year to travel as Spring was in full force. Once we boarded, our check in process was incredibly simple as we were early. The room was ready and our luggage was delivered quickly. Then we took a taxi to the Basel Art Museum and enjoyed this beautiful city on our own. Once we boarded the ship again, we began the muster process and listened intently on what to expect at the ports and the cruise in total. Viking had every step so clearly thought out and planned! Once we began to sail it was dinner time. The staff was SO intent on learning everyone's names and what preferences they have. I was amazed at how each time I saw them, they greeted me by first name and had a cold ice tea with a fresh lemon ready for me! It was a great touch by Viking! The food was freshly prepared and absolutely wonderful! Our server encouraged us to try the region specialty nightly and brought our a dish so we could all share. It was a great experience and we loved every moment of the restaurant and terrace staff! We never went hungry or thirsty! The tours were so thoughtfully planned out and truthful about the demands of the guests for walking. One tour had a 3 hour bus ride which prompted us to pay for an additional excursion, however, we had the BEST time! Many tours are demanding on your legs for walking. We were clocking in at over 17K steps in a day and we were pretty sore, however, we refused to miss a thing so we kept walking! They do have a leisure option that I would recommend for anyone struggling with long walks. Please keep this in mind! I am now addressing the "white elephant" in the room, COVID. For the first 3 days, we had test tubes brought to our rooms for saliva samples that we were to fill and bring to the front desk by 8am. (I did forget to mention, they did have a quick Covid test once your boarded the first day. ) We learned that a few people did test positive for COVID and were escorted to a hotel in Germany. This prompted an additional day of testing for us all. The ship is kept immaculate by the way! I must also say that I learned that if you test positive, they will not re-test you to confirm a false positive. This did not in anyway hamper our trip. We felt very comfortable traveling! It's hard to just pick one tour over the other but Strasburg was AWESOME! I just loved this incredibly sweet and quain town! The Marksburg Castle was exceptional as well. The beauty of the Rhine tour was so vivid in colors and just sheer beauty. I cant seem to stop smiling when I am talking about the trip to friends. My recommendation is to see everything you can! MOST IMPORTANT fun fact for you: Sunday's are what I like to call "Chick Fil-A Day", all the shops are closed except for a few souvenir stores. The disembarkation was as easy as check in! It is handled by time of departure. Wow what a great process. We spent the post 3 days in Amsterdam and absolutely fell in love with this city! Once we completed the trip, we were off on our schedule flight with the memories of an absolute exceptional fairytale of a trip.

Enjoyable Riverboat Cruise by djsherman132

Ship: Viking Sigyn / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

Cruise was enjoyable. Viking switched our ship at the last minute from the brand new Sygyn to the Viking Ve which was 4 years old. The service were amazing.

Best Biking River Cruise by Cruiser19414843

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

The Viking staff was exceptional from the one who cleaned the room to the ship captain. Friendly, made efforts to know our name and the food was absolutely the best. Felt like leaving family on our debarking morning. The transfers to hotel to airport to ship were perfect. The pre and post hotels were top notch and their breakfasts was like being on the ship. The delay in getting rooms was hard on us since we had been on a plane forever but they had to clean after previous guests which was understandable.

Experience the magic of Viking and Christmas Markets on a Rhine Getaway. by NancyfromMiami

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

During the pandemic, travel is difficult, but Viking does the difficult task of making sure you have everything you need to make traveling possible. Our trip was amazing and we were able to visit at least a dozen Christmas Markets. Every excursion was better than the next, and the ship felt like home.

Terrific service by a terrific crew by yogiandthebear

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

This cruise was a bit different even for Viking as the Rhine was closed to traffic due to low water levels midway through our cruise. But Viking had the wherewithal to create an alternate plan which enabled us to complete our voyage with only a loss of half day when they had to bus us from Strasbourg to Rudesheim. My hats off to Viking for coming up with a plan in a half day's time and executing it flawlessly.
