Recent River Cruise Reviews What our clients are saying about their journeys

Best ever cruise in Egypt   , Queensland , Australia, Feb 2022
We travelled with Viking Cruises for the first time. We have travelled with other Cruise Lines/touring companies and found Viking is definitely superior. They had your wellbeing as their utmost priority. The ship staff welcomed us aboard and were so happy to see Australians cruising again.

Egypt did not disappoint, my expectations were high and ...read more on numerous occasions this was exceeded, so many jaw dropping moments. The cuisine on the ship was the best I have ever tasted. We were spoilt for choice and amazing flavours by Jakub. I am really missing the freshness and quality that we were provided whilst cruising. Even the cookies at the coffee station were absolutely amazing.

Enrico the ships manager knew everyone by name within a very short time. He literally goes out of his way to make sure you have the best experience ever. We always had personal service.

We travelled at a time when their is 80% less tourists so we did not have any issues with crowds etc. We were always advised of any tips that we needed to know beforehand.

The only thing I would do differently is get my insurance with Viking. I got insurance with a newspaper article recommendation as it had the best insurance for Covid. I paid a hefty premium and paid extra for cruising. I have since found out that Covid cover is not available for cruising with this insurance, Viking however will look after you from start to finish.

This trip was supposed to be taken during Covid lockdowns and had been cancelled. Viking and Global Journeys always communicated our options clearly. It was simple and straight forward. There was never any stress or concern. We simply could have had our money back. I really can’t recommend these companies (Global Journey and Viking) highly enough. I will be travelling with them again in the very near future.
Most Amazing   , United States, Feb 2022
We enjoyed all the highlights and had personal experiences with the sites. The food was great. Really enjoyed the villages we visited.
Amazing   , California, United States, Jan 2022
The best contiki trip I’ve been on! Absolutely loved this trip and all the add ons. Trip was worth every penny. Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide sheriff was amazing and very knowledgeable.
This trip was incredible!   , Toronto, Canada, Dec 2021
If you’re thinking of booking this trip do it - truly a trip of a life time. Sherif was amazing and so knowledgeable and made the whole trip so much better. You see so much of Egypt - definitely recommend doing all of the add-ons - so worth it!!

Cam and Fran's Paris to Normandy River Cruise on Uniworld's Joie de Vivre
