We enjoyed our experience with Viking river cruise. We just wish our room wasn't so noisy as it seems we were located near the engine.

The trip wa excellent and the tours offered were great. The ship was clean and the staff courteous.

Their were a few bumps along the way,( none of them your fault) thoroughly enjoyed our stay down the Rhine.

Be sure you have comfortable walking shoes! We loved the walking tours. The food was excellent and just the right size portions.

We had to change ships due to low water level, Viking handled the switch as well as could be expected

If traveling with Viking Cruise line, always book your airline travel through them. If you have any problems, Viking will make sure it is fixed and the issue kept at a minimum.
