“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

“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

“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

“Beautiful Bordeaux ”

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

What a wonderful week on a Viking Long Boat travelling along the Garonne, Girone and Dordogne waters. Plenty to see on the numerous included and optional excursions or time to relax on the boat in any of the numerous public areas. Food and wine were of excellent quality for all meals with plenty of choice for even the fussy of eaters; although sometimes a plain ham sandwich would have been nice for a lunch snack. Mooring points were within walking distance of the town centres, so there was no… Read Full Review

“The best holiday yet”

Written on: 05/07/2014

OK, it isn't cheap. The best costs - and we also have to pay for the endless Viking TV adverts and mailshots that seem to come weekly - but once you've been on a Viking river cruise, you know how the rich folk live for the other 51 weeks while we are working to pay for a holiday. The ships and service and second to none. Don't come on a Viking cruise if you are starting a diet. The food will blow you away and they serve excellent wine with the meals. The excursions are led by experienced… Read Full Review

“Never Too Old!”

Written on: 05/07/2014 by McConnell69 (1 review written)

At 80 years of age and with my 79 year old wife, I ventured onto our first River cruise in May 2014, along the Romantic Danube. It proved to be one of the best holiday experiences of our lives. Friendly and highly efficient crew, excellent food and drink, carefully planned excursions and entertainment and at all times, care for the well-being and enjoyment of guests all delivered in a courteous but informal manner. Such was the success of this first experience that we have already made a… Read Full Review
