Cities of Light Cruise Reviews

People love to tell us how much they enjoyed their journey and we're as honored by their words as we are by the fact that they chose to travel with us in the first place. Read some of the best reviews about our guests' experiences below.

VIKING GETS IT RIGHT

Viking’s service made this cruise and trip effortless. Five-star service and food. We wished we had more time at each location. Would book Viking again. Very easy to get around and they provided headsets for the entire trip. Viking gets it right.

IT WAS A GRAND TRIP

We are so impressed with Viking and the efficient way they operate. The ship’s staff was really wonderful—friendly and responsive. Every excursion was a delight. Wish we'd booked a longer stay in Prague...Loved the city and the hotel. The local guides along the way ranged from good to unbelievably fabulous! We loved how things ran on time. All in all, it was a grand trip and we can't wait to go on another cruise with Viking.

TOP-NOTCH LEVEL

This trip was better than I ever expected. Beautiful cities. Everything was done at a top-notch level. Best staff of any cruise we have taken; always smiling. When staff is humming doing their job, it means they are happy!

THIS BEATS THEM ALL

“Superb” does not fully describe our time with Viking. This company has the very pulse of cruising. Great ships, wonderful meals and lovely cities with knowledgeable and humorous tour guides; fantastic service. Exceptional. Luxurious. We have cruised the oceans, but this beats them all. You just have to experience it to believe it.

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED FIRST RIVER CRUISE

This was our first river cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The thoughtful, efficient staff made us feel pampered, and the activities and guided tours were well planned and interesting. There was so much to see, but you can do as little or as much as you want. We particularly liked seeing the castles on the Middle Rhine and the visit to Lobkowicz Palace in Prague. We recommend this cruise.

BYE, BYE, BUS TOURS!

This was our first Viking Cruise, and we had a fantastic experience. The crew was great and satisfied our every need. The food was delicious and daily excursions were well thought out and interesting, to say the least. Viking tours get you into the heart of cities and towns you are visiting so you can enjoy the local food and culture. Signing up for our next one. . . . Bye, bye, bus tours!

EXCELLENT TO SAY THE LEAST

Ship and crew, excellent to say the least! Smooth sailing and informative stops all the way. Food was excellent, efficient, well-prepared. This was my wife’s first trip to Germany, France and the Czech Republic and I had not been back to Germany in 40 years. I am totally sold on Viking and I can see why they receive such excellent ratings; everything is smooth and perfect.

EXCITING AND EDUCATIONAL

We just returned from our Paris to Prague trip on Viking. The voyage was exciting and educational and the company is very professional, with knowledgeable guides at every destination. We particularly enjoyed the additional tour of Lobkowicz Palace in Prague and the excellent tour guide we had. The Viking team was present throughout the journey with efficiency and punctuality in all venues. The ship was comfortable, smooth and quiet, and the fellow passengers were convivial and entertaining. We recommend this cruise and this company very highly. The tours were challenging though we were glad that we could keep up with the group. We were very lucky to have taken this journey and we learned a lot about places we had never visited before.

THE BEST WITH VIKING

This was my second Viking River Cruises itinerary, having done Passage to Eastern Europe last year. My travel friend and I are absolutely sold on Viking River Cruises and think they are the best vacation available. Cities of Light allowed us to return to Prague (we were there last year prior to our cruise) and we got to see all the places that we did not see last year. Then the cruise was so well-planned. All the food, accommodations, crew, tours, etc. were the best. I wish we had traveled through the beautiful Middle Rhine area during the afternoon; we sailed there in the morning and the fog was very thick which greatly diminished our ability to view the castles. Other than that I have NO complaints. Paris was…well, how else can Paris be but FABULOUS! We have already booked our next Viking cruise for next March: we are doing Tulips and Windmills on the same ship, Viking Sky! Hopefully we’ll get to see some of the same wonderful crew. Thanks, Viking!

FANTASTIC TRIP!

Fantastic trip! My husband and I and two other couples thoroughly enjoyed our Cities of Light trip last summer. Everything was wonderful and the staff should be commended. We are currently planning our next Viking trip with our friends. I highly recommend Viking cruises. It is the best way to travel!

I AM A FAN

FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY

The Eiffel Tower, the Charles Bridge, and all the castles. It was hard to believe we were really seeing Prague, Paris, the Rhine and the Moselle, but it was all captured on my camera. Viking River Cruises is first class all the way. Great food, great crew, great everything! This was our first river cruise and we have already booked another one.

TOUR GUIDES WERE OUTSTANDING

My husband and I recently returned from a Cities of Light river cruise. This was our first trip with Viking, although we have previously traveled with other river cruise companies. Our tour guides were outstanding.

ENTIRE ITINERARY WAS SUPERB

What did your corporation do well? Practically everything! Entire itinerary was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend this particular Viking cruise to my friends.

WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIP

Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful trip my daughter and I had sailing from Paris to Prague on Viking Fontane. The captain and crew were superb! The tour guides in all the towns were excellent. It is my hope to travel with Viking sometime again in the future.
