Our friends invited us to join them on this cruise. Cruises are not exactly our style. The cruise ship was well laid out, clean and did not seem to be over crowded. Our favorite part of the cruise was sitting on the upper deck watching the countryside go by. Since we did most of our traveling at night, the day time cruising was not as frequent as we would have liked. The crew and in ...

Originally intended to do Budapest to Amsterdam but had to cancel. A year later we looked into Budapest to Nuremburg with add on to Prague. Loved everything about the whole trip. Impressed with the guides on the included excursions. All of them extremely knowledgeable and interesting. You could tell they enjoy their jobs. Danube River can encounter water level issues that can affect ...

From the moment your arrive at the airport the Viking Staff is there to greet you and your only concern is to relax and enjoy yourself. Food was delicious. Service was impeccable. The Cabin was immaculate. The excursions were were organized and well done. We really enjoyed the wine and dinner experience which was tailored to go with the Region we were in. We loved meeting new people and the ...

We chose this cruise because many people we know had highly recommended Viking. We absolutely loved everything about our trip! The accommodations, staff, food, excursions and tour guides were all well above our expectations. We began our trip down the Danube in Budapest and ended in Nurumberg. The excursions that were included in our cruise package were outstanding! We not only saw beautiful and ...

We have been talking about a Viking River Cruise for 10+ years. We finally had the opportunity. My husband really wanted to see Prague and Budapest so that made our cruise decision easy. Our Prague pre trip was fantastic. We were happy we spent the extra money and spent extra time. One regret: we thought we would be tired by end of cruise so did not extend for the Budapest post trip; we were ...

Working with Viking in planning our cruise was flawless as well as working with them on excursions, taxis and requests on board. Our cabin was small (no balcony) but we really didn't spend a lot of time in our room. It is extremely well laid out. Embarkation and disembarkation was easier than checking in and out of a hotel. Everyone on board is friendly, welcoming and know you by name right ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted a memorable time with my mother-in-law and step father-in-law and I wanted to see Prague. We knew from previous cruises that Viking would not disappoint. Traveling with seniors and myself having dietary issues we felt this would be the best option and we were so right. The staff took extra care to make sure our needs were met and I never had to worry about ...

I was so excited to be on my first and only Viking River Cruise of a lifetime on the Danube River through Europe. We saved and saved for several years. Then when the time came we were told by Viking the day before we left home the Danube River was low and we would "most likely" "maybe" mean we would be on multiple ships. Getting ready, vacation time, arrangements for watching our home, air fare, ...

This was our 3rd cruise with Viking. All three experiences were A-1, Top Shelf, Some additiona busing on one,but we still had a fabulous time. The staff on our most recent cruise was particularly enjoyable. Mario the cruise director was knowledgeable and always ready to assist and answer any questions. The two game nights were especially entertaining. The wait staff in the dining room, were beyond ...
