Just Going Through The Motions - Sorry To Say, Viking Let Me Down On This Cruise.

Sorry but this is gonna hurt. We and Viking River Cruises have had a great relationship since our first cruise of the Daube in 2011 (for our 30th anniv.) Thought we'd repeat the... read more

Sorry but this is gonna hurt. We and Viking River Cruises have had a great relationship since our first cruise of the Daube in 2011 (for our 30th anniv.) Thought we'd repeat the experience for our 35th with the Rhine River Cruise. Many things were excellent, some satisfactory and a few points need a lof of help before we consider... More

Just finished a 7 day Rhine cruise on the MV Virginia as part of a Shearings/National Holidays/Caledonian travel trip in July. Can't say enough good things. Cabin was excellent. Had booked the largest and it was ideal. No problems with the wet room. Water did not accumulate. The food was excellent. Absolutely no complaints from our table. Crew were amazing.... More

Have just completed an 18 day cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam with CroisiEurope. The boat was the MS Victor Hugo. There were 6 in our party from New Zealand and we took the all inclusive package. The boat can take about 90 passengers and is one of the two smallest boats in their fleet. This allows it to sail on... More

We left from Bingen and got off at Bacharach but the boat went all the way to St. Goars. The cruise is fabulous - absolute best way to see all the castles along the middle section of the Rhine!!! We got off in Bacharach so we would have time to go see the castle in person and walk around the... More

After we signed up for the Amsterdam Basel cruise, we felt like we had been put thru the wringer. We had to hold them to their word to many times during sign up. After that, we then started learning about all the extra fees they want for anything and everything. We were going to rest and relax, but the free... More

Just got back from the most enjoyable holiday. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Everything from the boat to the staff was A1. All the staff on the boat made you feel special. The excursions were excellent with very knowledgeable guides. The food on the Kvasir was of the highest quality.

We did the Viking Rhine Getaway Cruise from Basel to Amsterdam from June 26 to July 3, 2016 on Viking Longship Kara and it was the best trip I have ever had. The Rhine River is amazing to cruise on and there are all sorts of amazing sights just offered by the river. Viking, however, kicks it up several notches... More

This is an excellent way to see a lot of things in a short time. The main drawback to the trip was that several places on the itinerary deserve days to explore rather than hours. I was amazed that unless you were looking at the river bank, you rarely knew the ship was in motion. The Viking Longship is an... More

Having just returned from this cruise I feel I must write down the pros and cons of this holiday. It was a 9 day cruise aboard the MPS Lady Anne organised by the river Cruise Line. Firstly I must say this was a lovely vessel. All wood and brass. Although old it was in first class condition. Spotlessly clean polished... More
