Our first Viking River Cruise by gabbott46

The folks at Viking really know how to spoil their customers.  Everything about the cruise was wonderful.  Even though it was supposedly the rainy season, it never rained once.  The food was excellent.  All of the employees on the ship could not have done more to make it a terrific adventure.

 

We will cruise with Viking again!

Cruising on the middle Rhine was exceptional, staff of Viking set a happy tone.  Nicole was exceptional as our guide. The food was amazing, we never went more than 2 hours fwithout eating!  Being welcomed back from shore visits with a drink of local flavor was a great touch. the ship was so clean.  The staff were so friendly, especially Norvin and Jon Jon.

Great European Cruise Vacation by loumachuca

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise was the best vacation we have had.  The food was prepared by a top-notch chef who prepared gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - absolutely the best ship food I have ever eaten.  the complimentary wine was very good, too.  The ship was relatively new, but the accommodations were great - firm bed, balcony, very smooth ride.  It was so smooth that may times we had to look out the balcony door to see if we were moving.  The cities we stopped in were just magnificent and the tour guides truly made the visits to the towns, castles, etc. very memorable.  Overall, a great experience.  Will do it again in a heart beat!

Rhine Rhapsody by lfinnewyork

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

3/27/2016 Rhine Rhapsody.  10 days from Basel Switzerland to Paris, France. A short wonderful breathtaking cruise from Basel, Switzerland to Germany towns, to Luxembourg and ending in Paris, France.  This cruise is available only a couple of times at the start of the year.  Ours is the first trip for 2016 for Viking Vidar.  Some passengers canceled their trip because of last week's Brussels terrorist bombing, Only 60 passengers pushed thru and we all have a fabulous trip with almost a ratio of one crew to one passenger.  We were pampered, spoiled and have a wonderful time.  For a New Yorker, I find Switzerland and Paris expensive, but what the heck, we were on vacation.

Excellent experience, I highly recommend this river cruise and viking. by jcluff

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I hesitated to book a 14 day cruise on any boat but Viking came highly recommended.  To sum it up, everything Viking advertised on their web site, in their videos and in their brochures is not only true but they exceeded all of our expectations.  Service was excellent and the food was much better than expected. All of the Viking provided tours and tour guides were as good or better than any tours I have been on any time or any where.

If someone is looking for a vacation that truly provides for your every need and anticipates your every desire then this is it.

Don't over pack. We ended up with too many clothes.

If you use credit cards, be sure to place an international notification on the card before you leave. There are plenty of ATM machines available as you need cash during your trip. Be sure to check with your cell phone carrier to ensure you can use you phone overseas.

Make sure you stop at an ATM and bring plenty of Euros. Bring good walking shoes (not flip flops or open toed shoes). Unless you are a heavy drinker do not buy the open bar plan, we drink plenty and the drinks are reasonable and great quality. The viking included tours are better than the add ons
