Viking Prestige Cruise Review by cscockey

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2016
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

The cruise was fantastic! It began in Budapest Hungary and ended in Passau Germany. There were many stops along the way, allowing exploration with a group or individually. The ship was very comfortable and the food couldn't have been better. The crew were all wonderful and took customer service to the highest level I have experienced! The tour guides were all great and very well educated about the areas they covered. The excursions were very enjoyable, allowing us to meet local people and experience local culture. It was nice to be able to have a tour of the ship's navigation center and learn a little about the operation of the ship and navigation on the Danube, including the river locks. There was a nice library aboard ship with books about the areas we were visiting, and wonderful views of the surrounding countryside while we cruised. While the ship was underway, there was not the slightest hint of rocking, or any feeling of actually being on water -- it was that smooth!
