My wife's big dream was to visit The Christmas Markets in Europe and we were not disappointed. We took the Christmas Market Cruise on the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest, and while the weather was cold and rainy, that did not dampen our spirits or slow us down at all. This was our third Viking cruise, and while each one has been different in terms of location, seasons, and weather, the one thing we have learned to count on is the consistent quality of the Viking Cruise Experience. No detail is left unattended,
Our stateroom was clean, comfortable, and immaculately maintained throughout the entire cruise. Every detail of the shore excursions was taken care of, and the cold, rainy, weather, which was out of even Viking's control, did not seem so bad when we were handed a roomy umbrella on our way off the ship, and a heated towel and warm drink as we re-boarded after a day of shopping in the rain!
We were entertained onboard with music, a charming recital by local school children from Budapest, and a Christmas party with all our new friends where we decorated Christmas ornaments, sang carols, and truly felt like we were celebrating the holidays with a room full of our closest friends.
If you want to have an enriching, enlightening travel experience, with every detail seen to by a courteous, professional staff, I don't know how you could do better than Viking. We will definitely be back. In fact, we have already booked our next cruise!
Excellent with all the amenities you could ever need.
