“CLA Game Fair”

Written on: 15/07/2014

We had a wonderful cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. The staff were all very helpful and I found it very relaxing. We were unable to take part in a lot of the excursions as my husband is a part time wheelchair user but that didn't matter. We saw some beautiful scenery and the weather was glorious. We had a suite and for us the extra space was worth every penny!… Read Full Review

“Fabulous River Cruise”

Written on: 13/07/2014

We set off on our Viking River Cruise at the end of April, not being quite sure what to expect. On first sight, the ship looked sleek and elegant. As we got on board, we noticed that the condition of the ship was first class; no chipped paintwork or dirty skirting boards. It was ship shape. We went in to have lunch which was varied and delicious. There was a good selection to choose from and the quality of the food was excellent. We ordered our drinks and from then on the waiter… Read Full Review

“Cruising Indochina's present and past”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by 86Dudley (1 review written)

We were on a week-long Viking cruise along the Mekong river, taking in Vietnam and Cambodia, with a week's land arrangements tacked on to the end and the beginning. From Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon)we joined our small ship (fewer than 60 passengers)and cruised slowly across the border into Cambodia, where we moored at Phnom Penh, the capital. After disembarking, we were driven to Siem Reap for a three-night stay featuring the magnificent centuries-old temples in and around Angkor Wat… Read Full Review

“Waterways of the Tsars”

Written on: 07/07/2014

We have just returned from a 12 night river cruise on the Volga-Baltic Waterway, travelling from Moscow to St Petersburg. We spent 3 nights in Moscow and our included excursions took us to all the best known sights from The Kremlin and Red Square, the iconic St Basil's Cathedral, the GUM store, the Cosmonaut Museum, to an evening canal boat ride seeing Moscow all lit up at night, we even took a ride on the famous Moscow Metro where the stations are an artwork themselves. Then we left Moscow and… Read Full Review

“Relaxed, Informative River cruises”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by MakenaPowell (1 review written)

River cruises offer an opportunity to enjoy independence within an organised frame-work. Viking offer an excellent standard of facilities and catering on board their river cruises. The standard of guides, both on and off the boat in local areas, has been very high - we have traveled with them in China, Russia and within Europe. Lectures have been informative but accessible with good walking tours to follow on shore. Importantly time is then also allowed for independent exploration - the… Read Full Review

“What a poor performance from Viking!”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by Helen05910 (1 review written)

We booked a junior suite on the Russian cruise. When we approached the suite we could smell a very unpleasant odour. When we entered the suite the smell was overpowering. We complained and were informed it was the cleaner's materials. The smell became worse over the evening, we complained twice more and were given all kinds of excuses. By midnight the smell in the bathroom was so obnoxious we could not enter the room. We asked to be moved as we concerned about our health. It was refused to… Read Full Review

“Rhine delights, fantastic weather, what more could we...”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by ted.b (1 review written)

This was our first ever cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it.The weather was brilliant for the whole week, though the air conditioning on the ship kept us comfortable throughout. The food was excellent, and the level of service was tremendous. Every member of staff we met was courteous and good-humoured at all times, and there was a strong feeling of team spirit from the Captain and his senior team, through the rest of the staff. We frequently saw the senior officers helping to load and unload… Read Full Review

“Comfort, great company and fabulous concerts”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by ShelbyWatson (1 review written)

We romantically cruised in rainy weather along the Danube in May 2014. The ship was very clean, comfortable and the staff were very attentive, always smiling. We liked being able to change tables for every meal and met many interesting people - I now know so much more about American politics and how life is lived 'across the pond'. We listened to some fabulous music, we recommend the Donau String Orchestra and if you happen to be in Vienna for the Midsummer Night concert as we were, do go for… Read Full Review

“wonderful, luxurious experience”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by LVASW (1 review written)

A brilliant holiday with everything catered for. All the excursions were interesting and some quite ammusing with no worries about hearing or keeping together. On board all requirements were met. Food and drinks were excellent and entertainment was good but still leaving time for relaxation. Rooms and other onboard facilities were very comfortable, even on an older boat. New ones look fabulous. The idea of sightseeing while cruising was appealing and luckily lived up to expectation. Will look… Read Full Review

“Danube River of Changes”

Written on: 05/07/2014

Viking River Cruises a company that uses the best and gives you the best. Best airlines that being "British Airways" On board the Longships the best food is served with plenty of choice and good choice of wines. Food that keeps you going all day long. Cabins that are fresh and clean, home from home, beds that you fall asleep in when you lay down your head. The best toiletries free each day that being L'occitane. 24/7free hot and cold drinks you help yourselves to. Excellent land trips with… Read Full Review

“Tried, tested and delighted”

Written on: 05/07/2014 by roggo46 (1 review written)

We have taken 3 river cruises with Viking, all of which we have thoroughly enjoyed. They were Tulips and windmills (to try them), Imperial jewels of China and Waterways of the Tsars. The accommodation is very good, the food is excellent, the inclusive excursions are very interesting and well planned, the staff are always pleasant. The only downside is that gratuities are not included in the price. Don't expect to go on Viking river cruises for a rest - there is so much to see and something to… Read Full Review

“feedback on Rhine cruise”

Written on: 05/07/2014 by SGaller (1 review written)

Very well organised tour, friendly atmosphere, helpful staff at all levels. The bed in my cabin (French balcony, Cat A) was not particularly comfortable. Although various trips were organised daily which made the tour less boring but it would be better if less cathedrals visits. A small gym with basic equipment (e.g. cross trainer/ floor mats ) would be useful… Read Full Review

“peaceful relaxing cruise ”

Written on: 05/07/2014

Duruga River cruise, Portugal This is the break for you if you want excellent service by lovely staff, a comfortable environment, great food & drink and plenty of time to relax. Watching the very pretty scenery go by, allows lots of time to read novels or listen to music. If you like port - or even if not - you will come away with vast knowledge of the product. However, there is not much to see from a cultural or urban viewpoint, although the planners have obviously tried hard to provide as… Read Full Review
