Not our first and not our last Viking trip!

We wanted to see Budapest and Vienna. The weather was perfect. I was particularly impressed with Cesky Krumlov, the castle was such an impressive sight. We went on several of the extra excursions and found ...

A Great Viking River Cruise

We had taken a couple of ocean cruises and just hated them, but our friends convinced us that a Viking River Cruise was different. They ships were smaller, they said, with far fewer passengers. The food was ...

Viking River Cruises have set the standards!

We chose Viking for the ports and excursions they offer. We have heard many horror stories of cruises that became bus tours because of low river levels, high river levels and other natural hiccups. After checking ...

Romantic Danube is wonderful introduction to river cruising

My wife and I arrived in Budapest 4 days early to explore that beautiful city on our own, so, of course, our first contact with the Viking staff was when we boarded the Njord. From the first moment we were treated ...

I can easily see why Viking is the #1 river cruise line. I can't imagine how any company could do better. The customer service is top notch! We started with two days in Budapest at the Hilton on Castle Hill in Buda. ...
