Viking Brill.

Reviewed By: on
Hi everyone. Iv just done a River cruise with Viking. It was doing the Douro on Viking Hemming. Well I must admit it was brilliant. We were looked after from start to finish. The staff were excellent, polite and accommodating. Absolutely nothing to much trouble. Thankyou barman Christian who always remembered what drink you liked and remembered everything. Food on the ship was very nice. The chef made food that normally we would not try like Octopus, but we gave it ago and so glad we did. Visited lots of places and also went to Salamanca in Spain where we had an over night stay as a couple of locks were being maintanced so we could not go through them. Really enjoyed Porto and had great views from the ship. You get your tours included in your cruise and we went to some great places Regua, Pinhao and many more. We even had meals out courtesy of Viking and a beautiful castle, hotels that the meals were being held, could not fault them. We had a few days in Lisbon before our cruise and all part of Viking. I must admit they choose really nice hotels. Back to the ship. We had a small swimming pool on it. They had sunbeds, chairs, tables upstairs so plenty of room. In the bar area we had people come on and gave us demonstrations of what their culture does which was very interesting. We had music, some musicians who came on. Everybody ate together in the evening in the restaurant and we loved this as you are never rushed and can enjoy meeting your fellow guests. Wine, soft drinks are always included at meal times and they always made sure you had a glass that had something in. Excellent. The cabin we stayed in was an inside but you have got a window to see out of and it was a decent size. Toiletries were provided. Tv great with free movies if you wanted them. Great shower as it was a glass shower and not those horrible curtains. Very impressed with it all. You meet all the staff as they have the welcome party and we had a port occasion and tried quite a lot, well would be rude not to especially when we in Porto Portugal. We also went to Sandamans were they make port, very good. The views from the ship and ours tours were spectacular. So many places to see. Thankyou Viking for a truly amazing cruise & holiday.
