Boring scenery on Duoro not compensated by gallons of alcohol
By Malcolm Hunt on 29 October 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Hemming Reviews

We have been on more than 10 ocean cruises but this was only our second river cruise. Having had a fabulous trip on the Rhine we really looked forward to our Duoro trip but it was a big disappointment. Never ending vine terraces and no places of interest to stop off. Excursions all needed at least an hour on a coach to arrive at and were hardly worth the effort. Entertainment crew seemed to try...

Viking scored as usual. Great food, interesting visits, comfortable cabin and wonderful, cheerful, helpful and friendly staff.

Chateaux, Rivers and Wine September 2018
By Tony Fawcett on 24 September 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Forseti Reviews

My wife and I much enjoyed this river cruise and also the pre-cruise tour around the Loire Valley (with a particularly excellent guide). The ship itself was brilliant, the staff friendly and helpful and the food good. Needless to say, the local wines included at lunch and dinner were most acceptable. The included excursions reflected the best the region had to offer with good local guides but we felt the optional ones were overpriced and...

Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise in August this year. Great itinerary. Beautiful ship. Adults only. Exemplary service and always with a smile.

Great cruise on the Rhine
By Clemente Fiume on 17 September 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Mani Reviews

It was our 4th cruise with Viking and again we loved it. The staff are brilliant and can’t do enough to please you. The cabins are very comfortable, the food is exquisite and they really tried to cater for people who had allergies. It is still geared very much for the Americans but this is acceptable. The excursions were very good but in our opinion, the included tours were not as great as the ones...

French escape
By IAN MANNING on 17 September 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Buri Reviews

Great pick up from airport. Was whisked off to the boat. Quite surprised to find cabin ready for us as we arrived before noon. We were then sent off to get lunch which we did not expect as it was not down as a meal to be taken. The service we got from all the staff was 100%. Well what can I say about the included tours. As you got off the boat you were...

Wonderful Danube Experience
By Michael Kerlin on 11 September 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Legend Reviews

This was our first cruise experience of any kind. We decided on a river cruise rather than an ocean cruise as we felt it would be a little more personal (and no matter where we sailed we had a view, not just a horizon). We were not disappointed in any way at all. Viking as a company was superb in every sense. The staff made you feel so special and they could not do enough for...

Low water, high heat
By Hugh Evans on 30 August 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Egil Reviews

Low water reduced the cruising element somewhat. Flew into Budapest via Munich with the Luftwaffe, full airplane but good service and food supplied. Reps met us in Budapest and crossed Danube on 2 hour bus ride (bumpy) to Komarno in Slovakia to board ship. Chance of going back to Budapest next day declined as it would have involved 7 hours on bus to Vienna to meet the ship again. We stayed on board to enjoy...

Baltic Cruise July 2018
By Geoff and Barbara Saville on 06 August 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Sea Reviews

This was our first Viking Sea cruise and we are really lost for superlatives to describe our cruise. The ship is extremely well designed and appointed and is impeccably furnished. The included tours were good especially the walking ones. The staff are friendly and attentive. The dining facilities are very good and none of the searching for tables which we have experienced on other ships. The evening shows were excellent with a mixture of resident...

Screeching noise
By Frank Davies on 21 May 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Heimdal Reviews

We were in a cabin on the “main deck” and periodically (annoyingly at 5am onwards) there was a screeching noise which seemed to come from either just inside the cabin or just outside in the corridor. The din was loud enough to wake me up The chamber made was baffled when I asked her if she had heard it and as no one else seemed bothered I tried to put it out of my mind....

Not the best Viking Cruise holiday
By Lesley Mottram on 24 April 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Hemming Reviews

Having nothing but praise for previous Viking River and Ocean cruises, this one on the river Douro was somewhat spoiled by the constant rain and having to jump ship before the end of the holiday because of the river current is too strong, none of this was Viking’s fault. But, a sickness bug went around the ship, people were dropping like flies and Viking did nothing to try to contain this and stop the spread....

South America & The Caribbean
By Roger Cox on 26 February 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Sea Reviews

Excellent cruise with Viking. This is our second cruise with the company and we could not have been happier. From Boarding the ship to disembarking the Service was superb. All the Ocean ships with Viking are identical in layout and the comfort, quality of the fixtures, fittings and furniture lovely and restful. Our Cabin was on Deck 4 Deluxe Veranda Suite 4090 and we could not have wished for a more comfortable experience. The choice...

Cruise Feb. 2018
By Diane Kinch on 08 February 2018
Viking Cruises | Viking Star Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of life on board. The choice and quality of food and wines was excellent. We love the calm, cultured ambience, unspoilt by loud music, constant flyers and nuisance photographers. The staterooms are comfortable and clean and a proper bathroom is much appreciated. Our only complaint refers to the flight arrangements. Our party of six varied in age from 65 to 85. We all found the transfer in Paris extremely arduous....

River Duoro
By Irene and Barry Homer on 16 November 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Hemming Reviews

Viking came up trumps again. The service and staff are to be commended. Everything is impeccable and this includes the coaches and drivers which took us out each day. The trips are very well organised – no rush, but always keeping to time. Can’t recommend Viking enough and everyone on board was friendly and easy to talk to. We don’t like large cruise ships and Viking just suit us fine. Keep up the good work....

Cruise didn’t tick every box but a good holiday
By Richard Wallis on 05 October 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Ingvar Reviews

It was a fine holiday and maybe, having had other river cruises, we expected a bit too much. This was, after all, Northern Russia. The itinerary was excellent but Ingvar was not quite as impressive as other boats on which we have sailed. We missed the option to eat in the evenings away from the main restaurant. 90% of the passengers, maybe more (we only found 6 other Brits), were American and they tended to...

Danube Delights
By Dorothy Crutchley on 04 September 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Egil Reviews

Just returned from an 8 day cruise on the Danube aboard the Viking Egil. We flew from Manchester to Frankfurt with a 3.5 hour wait at Frankfurt before our flight to Budapest, where we boarded the Egil. Frankfurt airport was one of the best we’ve ever been to. It was modern, spacious, very well appointed with a large range of shops, bars and restaurants. The staff were very efficient and extremely warm and friendly –...

Viking Talfi (The Rhine Getaway Cruise)
By Susan Green on 31 July 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Talfi Reviews

What a fantastic week we had once again on board one of the Viking cruise ships. This time we embarked on the Tialfi for the Rhine Getaway cruise. Organisation of the daily tours is fantastic and the crew and Program /Tour Director were excellent. The places you visit are stunning and all the tour guides are so knowledgeable. The food is amazing and there is a wide choice. If you order something which you later...

A great way to experience the contrasts that are Russia.
By Keith Ryan on 05 June 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Helgi Reviews

Great ship, state rooms clean and large enough, good bathroom facilities. The ship is 30 years old but in really good order of maintenance. Smell of fresh paint at each port. Management team could not have tried harder to ensure our comfort and safety and were always friendly, courteous and professional. Waiting staff were a real treat and could not do enough for us, made us feel really special. Only real downside, and I am...

The Ultimate Upgrade
By Solent Richard on 05 June 2017
Viking Cruises | Viking Eir Reviews

I have recently completed a one week river cruise along the Rhine between Basel in Switzerland and Amsterdam onboard one of Viking’s Longships, Viking Eir. Flights were included in the package and we flew from London Heathrow on a British Airways scheduled flight to Basel. On arrival we were met by Viking representatives and, with the usual Viking efficiency, transferred to our waiting ship berthed in the heart of Basel. For this cruise we had...
