First River Cruise - There are differences


Our first river cruise, Passau to Budapest aboard the Hermod. Overall very pleased with the cruise. We did the pre-cruise in Prague, everything was well organized by Viking. The tree days gave us time to adjust to ...

A Step Below Last Year

We recently cruised the Danube River on the Viking Hermod riverboat. This was our second river cruise with Viking, having cruised on the Rhine River in June of 2018. Overall, while we greatly enjoyed the trip, we ...

Danube Waltz Cruise

I chose this cruise based on the reviews by prior cruisers and the ads seen on TV for Viking. The ship was a nice size and the cabin (balcony) was adequate. There was plenty of storage so no problems there. ...

First time Cruise!

This cruise came highly recommended by my mother and stepfather as they sailed a few years prior. I had never been on a cruise so was a bit hesitant that I might feel "stuck", but LOVED the ports and trips into all ...

Viking Danube Waltz

River cruising is the most pleasant and safe way for me to travel -- embark, unpack once, and visit several interesting destinations. For this cruise, Viking expertly handled all of the details and consciously ...

The itinerary was very good and the stop at Normandy was really special. The crew was wonderful. The food was ok. The wine was served amply. The cabin was ok but the carpeting there and throughout the ship was in ...

Another wonderful Viking cruise full of great people

We went on the Portraits of Southern France cruise on October 11, 2015. It was our 3rd Viking Cruise, and we have one more booked and others in planning. In short, we love Viking. In fact, our trip to China with ...

Great Ship

The Viking Hermod was a great ship with a crew that, in general, was very accommodating. This would have been a 5 star rating except for several things, one of which Viking had no control. The water level in the ...

Chalon-sur-Saone to Avignon

The Hermod is only a year old and is in beautiful condition and very well maintained by the staff. It is simply gorgeous. The public areas are very well appointed. The dining room suffers from a low, hard ceiling ...

Excellent Cruise to Nowhere

We were aboard the Portraits of Southern France cruise to nowhere on the flooded Rhone. Firstly, Viking are not responsible for water levels; that being so all of the staff made the very best of a bad situation. ...

Not as good as it could have been

Things got off to bad start when the van that was supposed to pick us up at the airport did not appear for hours...and only came after urgent calls to the ship. So we lost half a day of exploring the embarkation ...

Relaxing and fun

We are a middle aged couple who went on a cruise which traditionally attracts retirees, so there were only a handful of people our age. The ship was the perfect size, the food was excellent, the bar service was ...

Viking's Portraits of Southern France - nice ship

We've just completed Viking's Portraits of Southern France on Viking Hermod (south to north). It was mostly enjoyable but the weakest out of our six European cruises. We really enjoyed the friendly passenger mix of ...

Danube Waltz

This is my 3rd Viking cruise. We (my husband and I) choose this one because of the other two great experiences - 10/25/2014 Viking Helvettla Rhine River 4/29/2015 Viking Schumann Elbe River. However, the Danube ...

Superb except no internet access

If Internet access is not important to you then Viking is a fine, even a great, cruise line. However, if you really need (or want) internet access then try some other line, and do some research before you book. We ...

Bucharest to Budapest

We started our trip a day early in order to acclimatize after the long flight and booked the extra night at the hotel being used in conjunction with the cruise. We had already cruised the upper Danube with ...
