Viking Vili Cruise Review by Taylor47
- Sail Date: October 2018
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: French Balcony
I do not blame Viking for the weather and if we would have been booked out for some time, I would have just thought our bad luck. But after we got to Amsterdam, we found out that the river conditions and boat transfers had been taking place before the date we booked our cruise. I believe Viking should have been straight forward and advised us of this river condition before we booked. The thing that drew us to this cruise was that we would not be packing, and unpacking and we would not be spending hours on buses. Also, two of the cities we were most interested in seeing were Vienna and Budapest, time spent at both cities was severely curtailed due to boat movement, remote docking locations and long bus rides. All total we had to transfer boats 3 times.
Again, I am not blaming Viking on the weather or the river levels, but they knew of these conditions at the time we booked our cruise, and nothing was said. We would have not booked this trip if we knew of the river conditions, but maybe that’s why Viking was not honest with us.
I will say that most of the Viking crew were very pleasant and helpful and did a great job. We enjoyed them very much although our Crews Director stretched the truth about how much time we would be on a bus, the bus ride was always longer then he said.
One final comment, we filled out our commit sheets on the boat and voiced our disappointment and I also sent an e-mail to Viking and got no response from either. Oh well, Viking got their money and we got a disappointing vacation that was supposed to be our dream vacation.
I do not think I could ever recommend Viking to anyone.
