Default Viking River Cruises
We are considering a Viking River Cruise for 2014. We've never done a river cruise and don't even know what questions to ask!

The first two that come to mind are:

Has anyone had experience with the Viking River Cruise company? and
Is a balcony cabin similar to a balcony cabin on a cruise ship?

Thank you!

Nadine

Wink Sorry, never saw this to respond
Yes, I ve been on a Viking river cruise.Not one of the new longships,but older with only french(like a big window)balcony.The newer one now have a SMALL regular balcony.It s MUCH SMALLER than on ocean ships.Ships must go thru locks and that determines width.
Have been on 10 river cruises and Viking was not my favorite,prefer AMA,Uniworld,Scenic, or Avalon.Just a little step up in terms of cabin,service,food,excursions,etc.
Do a lot of research on ea.website to see EXACTLY what cabin and balcony looks like.
Any specific questions, will TRY to help.

Thank you so much for this information. The river cruises are quite costly and we want to make an informed decision about it. One of the cruises that interested us was an AMA cruise.

As we get farther along in our planning, I'm sure I'll have lots more questions! Thank you again for your help.

Nadine,
AMA was excellent in Nov. We did the Rhine. I have only done AMA and Uniworld but I am trying to catch up to Alexandra...but I don't think I can !

Thank you for your help. I think we have put a 2014 river cruise on hold. Maybe in 2015! So many places to visit and so little time (and money!!!).

Thanks again.

Nadine
