Fabulous Budapest to Nurnberg

We did this cruise to celebrate a milestone with another couple and chose it as we hadn't seen many of the stops even though we've all travelled a lot. Everything exceeded our expectations. The service on and ...

Pleasantly surprised and satisfied with our first European river cruise

This was our first river cruise. We were completely satisfied with the way Viking handled it. They paid attention to detail and completely pampered us inside the ship. It felt like a 4 star floating hotel. The ...

First Viking Cruise but Won't Be Our Last

I am not much of a cruise person but my wife really wanted to take a river cruise. This was one of the shorter ones so I felt that if I didn't like it I wouldn't be stuck for too long. I just wish I would have ...

Once in a lifetime trip may turn into several!

We chose this cruise because of the various ports of call along the Danube. We booked directly through Viking and had absolutely no issues. I have and will continue to recommend Viking to friends and family. ...

Viking's help in an emergency.

We chose this cruise because of the good prices offered nearly a year in advance. One thing has made Viking really stand out, and that is the remarkable care given in an unfortunate situation. Without my ...

We selected the "Romantic Danube" that traveled from Nuremberg to Budapest. It was an amazing cruise and we enjoyed every moment. We opted for a one week cruise because we had never been on a river cruise and ...

A Perfect River Cruise at the Right Price

Our Viking Cruise was called The Romantic Danube, beginning in Germany, passing through Austria and ending in Hungary. Our ship, scheduled to be the Njord, was actually the Freya due to a high water level on the ...

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 ...
