I need to start this review by going to the end of the cruise first where we had booked the Prague extension from Budapest, before going home. If we had known this to be an 8 hr bus ride we would not have gone to Prague. This is too long to make any trip enjoyable. the Corinthia hotel is great but there were lots of frowny faces when we got off that bus. Viking never said a word about the ...

I really enjoyed our cruise, our cabin was beautiful, the staff was amazing especially our cruise director. As we embarked early in the morning we were greeted with coffee and pastries, we were lucky enough to be the first cruise of the season so we got to go straight to our rooms. Every night we were informed of the next days activities and everything always ran smoothly and efficiently when ...

This Grand European river cruise has been on my wish list for a long time. We started in Budapest on Saturday, May 6, the Skadi is a lovely ship, our cabin was nice, it would have been nice to have two chairs instead of one chair and a stool, but otherwise was comfortable. The dining was wonderful, I needed special foods because of allergies and Ivan was wonderful assisting me. The ship's ...

Since the culture in Europe is changing so rapidly with immigration, I wanted to visit the Netherlands and Belgium now. The Skadi is one of the new Viking long ships and is very nice. Having traveled on a previous Viking cruise on an older ship, I was disappointed the window in our lower cabin was much smaller than the older ship. Be careful to point the shower head away from the shower door, or ...

Our Viking Ship Skaadi provided a beautiful cabin, delicious food, and wonderful service. The views from our room were often breath-taking and, overall, the trip was magical. However, in several ports, we docked adjacent another Viking boat and the view was blocked. To have the advantage of seeing the Budapest skyline from our cabin only to have it blocked by our own cruise company was ...

This was our first river cruise and we chose it because of its over all value. We had no expectations. At the end, we were very pleased with our experience. The crew was very cordial and polished. Everything was to our liking. The included excursions were excellent. The organization related to them were very good. The menu for each meal was varied. We always ate at the dining room ...

We wanted to see the tulips and we had to meet our friends and this cruise fit into our schedule. Unfortunately, I got sick the third day and missed a tour I was counting on. This wasn't an anomaly as most of the passengers got sick at one time or another and my wife got sick a couple days before the end of the cruise. This was a 24 hour gastrointestinal bug that not only affected the ...

We booked our riverboat cruise one year before our departure date in order to get the dates we wanted. When we arrived at our home airport (Halifax) we were told that Viking had booked us on two flights on the Germany to Prague leg of trip (we had booked 3 days in Prague through Viking, prior to our 'tour')... one from Munich airport and one from Frankfurt airport (we had a ticket for Munich) ...

Reading of low water problems before departure, an email from Viking while in Prague indicating a different embarkation point (Komarom, 60 mile west of Budapest), did not bode well. Some pre-cruise Prague passengers did receive the email and others did not. In any event, on the bus transfer to Budapest, 24 hrs later, we were informed that the Skadi did in fact make it to the departure point and ...

We were very impressed with the service on Viking. At the Airport in Amsterday, we put our Viking sticker on and within a minute were met by an extremely friendly guide who took over our baggage and got us quickly the Mercedes Limo to take us to the ship. At the ship, we were the second on board, we were met by the Hotel Manager and Cruise Director who carried our luggage to our room (note: we ...
