  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

Since we were planning on this being our trip of a lifetime, we chose the best, Viking. Your reputation for excellence tipped the scale to you. We booked a year in advance taking out trip insurance to be safe. Well we almost needed it. My wife was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma. With 25 brain tumors during the year we weren't sure we could go. However, she was cleared to take the trip the week before we left. Neither of us had been on a trip like this before, and had no idea how it would go. We found out it was quite challenging due to her health and mobility.

However, we persevered with the help and support of our wonderful crew, passengers and local europeans. It was wonderful!!!!!

We were amazed by the entire itinerary. Wonderful sights and people. Our crew and guides were excellent. So well organized and able to react to every obstacle thrown at them.

The most amazing thing was how the crew and corporate were able to complete our trip after the actual cruise had to end after 11 days. The freighter that ran aground in the middle of the Danube really could have been a compete trip killer. However, you managed to find busses, restaurants, hotels and a last night dinner cruise in Budapest. All first class hotels and restaurants. We are firmly convinced no other cruise line could have pulled that off!!!

We cannot say enough about your cruise line and our crew in of the Bragi in particular. From the stewards, waiters, bar tenders, chef, cruise director and staff were just wonderful. If we could we would want the same crew again!!!

We are not sure if her health will allow it, but we would definitely cruise with you again.

We tell every one we know that if you want a first class trip Viking is the way to go. Well worth any difference in price over the others.

Thanks again for our Trip of a Lifetime!!!

Gorgeous town. Had a beer in the oldest inn in Germany!!! Awesome!!!


This is a spectacular city. The Bishops' Residez was incredible. Couldn't take pics inside, but the images still imbedded in my memory. Had a light lunch (with beer) in a rathskeller that has been serving patrons for 1,000 years!!!!! Beautiful.


Walking tour was great, lots of history. Had lunch in a famous rathskeller serving sausages and smoked beer!!! Awesome.
