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 vessel. Loved the floor to ceiling windows. Every detail is thoughtfully executed. Great food, wine, people, entertainment. The included tours are great. You don't need to spend loads of money to have a delightful time. Well traveled folks who enjoy meeting each other. The crew work tirelessly to make the trip memorable. I will return at a future date for another cruise with Viking. I do thing you need to make sure that people are aware that when docked you may not be able to have a view from your cabin window. The ships tie up side by side and certain stops and also inside locks there is no view but concrete on those lower levels at times. It would have affected some peoples selections regarding cabin level I believe. I heard it discussed several times.
Our cabin was at the rear. Lovely and comfortable. When in the locks, you do hear the engines vibrate quite a bit. That's just the way it is. It did not interfere with my enjoyment.
Would like to have seen more. Beautiful fortress. Interesting history.
One of my favorite stops. I could stay in Passau for a good long while. Beautiful town and close to many other sights if you have time.View All 218 Walking Tour Reviews

Morning tour with free time to shop on the High Street and also have coffee. Love Vienna and would like extra time to rediscover a favorite city. Also enjoyed wine tasting and entertainment in the wine district.View All 169 City Tour Reviews

Enjoyed the tour of the Castle District but was crowded and had to rush. Our favorite was the night time cruise of 1 hour to see the lighted city. AmazingView All 70 The Castle District Reviews
