This was our first adventure on a river cruise and so we chose to sail with Viking whose name was associated with great service.
Our expectations were far exceeded. Our normal vacation would include a beach resort so a river cruise was outside of our comfort zone. However, from the first minute to the last we were completely blown away with the whole experience.
Discovering great cities like Budapest and Vienna were supplemented with some hidden jewels along the way. Our tour guides were superb,really bringing alive the locations we visited by sharing their own stories growing up behind the iron curtain.
Our cruise being in December also had the added attraction of the wonderful Christmas markets.These really lit up the various destinations we called at and gave another dimension to the whole cruise experience.
Everyone on board from the staff to the passengers added to make a fantastic experience.
Have already booked again for a Viking Rhine Getaway and a Viking Caribbean cruise.
