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.
We loved this cruise. The staff was exceptional. They were so friendly and interacted with guests exceptionally. The food was really delicious. The Captain was great and there were no problems. The guides were very organized and they were so informative. This was our third cruise and we are planning our next. It's so fun meeting all the guests from so many places. We know why Viking is #1! Thanks for a wonderful trip!
The history and cultural background provided by Viking staff and local guides was excellent. Plus very good food and friendly and professional ship staff. We commend our stateroom steward.
Great places to visit and best staff ever. We felt really well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and the guided tours were excellent. The organization was tremendous.
Viking really did an outstanding job. The Elbe River is beautiful . . . lots of interesting sights along the way; all of the stops were top-notch. With only 70 passengers and a crew of 24—a wonderful Program Director, Captain, Maître D’—we were pampered every day. The other passengers were very nice and easy to converse with. Loved this trip! We have already signed up for our third cruise with Viking. Easy to see why they were voted No. 1!

Wonderful cruise up the Elegant Elbe. The cruise director was just superb! We loved all the excursions and the friendly people we met on board.

We have just returned from Elegant Elbe, Berlin to Prague. We traveled with two close friends of ours and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent; the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable. The many extras made the whole experience memorable (wine with dinner, planned excursions with buses at every stop at no extra charge, clean and comfortable rooms, a large bottle of water in our room every day, entertainment almost nightly). We spent several days in Berlin before the cruise and several days in Prague after the cruise; we highly recommend this extra time. We plan to do another cruise next year.

The Elbe has no locks, so the cruising and even the engines were silent. Wittenberg, home of Martin Luther, was extremely interesting. The tours were outstanding. Dresden is a jewel, as is Prague. Our mistake was we did not extend in Berlin. We have been on more than 20 cruises including five river cruises, and Viking is the best value, all things considered.

My wife and I recently returned from our Elegant Elbe cruise and truly enjoyed this trip. We met interesting people, saw new sights, ate great food and relaxed on the sun deck while cruising. Nothing is wrong with that! And that means we will recommend this trip to others.

We returned from our Elegant Elbe Viking Cruise exhausted, happy and extremely proud of Viking. This was our eighth cruise with Viking and it reaffirmed our belief that Viking was the right travel choice for us. The guests were very experienced travelers and that helped make the timing of the events work well with the Program Director’s superb organization.

We’ve been back from our trip for about a month and still can’t believe what a marvelous experience we had. Viking’s Elegant Elbe exceeded all our expectations. We are looking forward to our next Viking cruise, hopefully in 2010!

I sailed on Viking Schumann between Berlin and Prague, your Elegant Elbe itinerary. It was a delightful trip due in large part to our Program Director. He was knowledgeable, patient and engaging. Viking is fortunate to have such a stellar employee on a staff of that caliber!
I enjoyed the cruise and would like to comment on the service provided by the staff members. I would like to commend them on the superior quality of service they provided. It will influence my decision when I choose my next vacation.
We found the river cruise experience to be an excellent value. The vessel was clean, comfortable and professionally managed. Your tour guides in each port were wonderful.
