River Docking, not River Cruising

We chose this trip because of the itinerary, our German heritage and the size of the ship. We liked the smaller amount of passengers allowing us to get to know people over the course of the cruise. We loved the included tours as well as the optional choices. Our cabin was spacious and very comfortable. Dining options were wonderful and the crew was superb. The menu was varied depending on the ...

We lucked out - fantastic weather (only rained on once for about 10 mins), we had no water level issues, and although we had to swap ships half way through, due to a broken lock, Viking handled the entire swap seamlessly. We have had great experiences on on several ocean cruises (not Viking) before this Grand European river cruise with Viking - OMG this is a whole different world. I can't ...

This is only the second cruise ever for my wife and me - our first was a brief ocean cruise from Florida to Bahamas on another major line, and we were not overly impressed. For years, though, we always wanted to try a river cruise, and after years on Viking's mailing list, we decided to take the plunge. We are so glad we did - we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We took the Grand European Tour, ...

Started on Viking Bragi-bused to Viking Ve. Water low time spent on busses

Danube Waltz - the cities we were going to with the rich history in each was the leading factor. Seeing the comfort of being on the ship and cruising down the river was total enticing. Unfortunately, we arrived when the river was historically low and did not get to spend the afternoon in Budapest. We got a panoramic bus ride then bused all the way to Vienna by passing Bratislava. We were bused ...

Staff very friendly. Food a bit different then expected. The cuisine was local, but not quite what we expected. The everyday side of the menu was very poor. The servers were very friendly, and the wine flowed consistently ... The tours were great. Enjoyed the “free” tours offered by Viking. The tour guides were very professiional and their love of their communities showed. We spent 2 ...

We wanted to see the Christmas Markets and this seemed an efficient way to do this. It was our first ever river cruise, and we were lucky to be able to sail the entire way given this year's chronic low water issues. Most of the staff were outstanding; very warm and helpful except perhaps for the tour director Lee, who seemed a bit prickly and distant at times. The weather was VERY cold, ...

After 35 cruises, this was the most disappointing ever, mostly a bus trip and Viking cruises are not cheap! We have been on a Viking Ocean cruise and loved it and decided to give their river cruises a try. Viking emailed us just before the cruise about the Danube river problems and we would now spend the1st night on a boat docked in Budapest, then pack up and take a bus 150 miles, thus losing ...

Changed ships and spent 4 days in hotels..was a 15 day cruise I paid for. First ship, the was food ok., but there was someone elses blood all over my comforter and they dumped the sewage into the river..smelled and looked gross!! And it is illegal. Food on Ve was not good. Service on one side of ship was terrible. Not a luxury cruise at all! Paid Viking over $20,000. SO NOT WORTH IT!! The ...

I chose this cruise because it was going to Budapest, which I consider the most beautiful city in the world. Although I had heard that cruise food was wonderful I was unprepared for how delicious it was and how accommodating the staff were in seeing that we had anything we needed. The service was fabulous and the people were so cheerful and learned our names, cabins and what we liked best to ...

Fantastic cruise! Everything was perfect, treated like royalty the entire time. Would change nothing, in fact scheduled another Viking River cruise as soon as we return. All Viking hosts were professional and all crew functions exceeded expectations throughout the entire cruise. Food choices, presentation and table service were five star in my book. The homemade cookies available throughout ...
