This was my first trip to Europe. I'm so happy I decided to do the river cruise, to work into my vacation slowly. My husband passed away 6 years ago at the time of my vacation. I needed to get away. I know he ...

The shore-to-ship-to shore care Viking gave us

Just what we were looking for. We needed to get out of town during that time and this provided a no fuss way to do it. During the trip we had no worries or concerns about transfers, baggage, meals or ...

Viking - first class treatment

We sailed with Viking previously on the Moselle and Rhine. We wanted to sail the Danube and chose Viking. We love how they take care of everything once you arrive. A barge accident blocked the Danube causing us to ...

Celebration Cruise

The reason we selected Viking was because of the reputation of everything being included and not having to worry about being nickeled and dimed every time you turn around. I had researched all of the other river ...

Fabulous first time river cruise experience

I finally did it and booked a river cruise. It exceeded my expectations. I chose 7 days which is perfect for me. I love the way the boats are configured to feel like you have so much space in a really limited size ...

Sailing the Danube was a dream come true.

I have had no interest in a typical ocean cruise experience. Shopping and gambling aren't my thing, which is what interested me in a Viking River Cruise. The activities and itineraries offered were exactly what I ...
