I was on the Romantic Danube trip from Budapest to Nuremberg 11/14/2015 to 11/21/2015. I will never travel with Viking again! Viking's management only cares about filling out the capacity of the each cruise ship. I have listed a few of my ... Read more

We cruised for about 3 days, On buses the rest of the time. Be cautious if cruising is a desire. We unpacked 3 times. Our Cruise started at a hotel in Budapest (Corinthia for Fri Night) rather than a Longship. Lots of bus rides ... Read more

We did a Viking Danube River Cruise with two other couples in late August. The cruise was scheduled to depart from Nuremberg and finish in Budapest. We never saw either city as Viking said the water was too low. My issue is that the ... Read more

From start to finish, Viking Cruise Lines again proved to know what they are doing when it comes to: 1. Treating their clients; 2. Arranging transportation to and from airports; 3. Hiring professional staff and 4. Selection of cruise ... Read more

I am a travel agent (semi-retired), and have been on many trips, visiting many countries, though only 2 cruises. I can seriously endorse river-cruising to be one of the best ways to travel and see a lot with very little stress at all. One ... Read more

First time in Holland and Belgium for myself and a friend (we have traveled many places), and this turned out to be one of our top 10 favorites, ever. Much of that enjoyment is directly owed to the shipboard staff and crew of the Viking ... Read more

We cruised on the Viking Danube from Amsterdam to Budapest. Viking were responsible for airport to ship transfers. At both ends their staff (crew) put us in a difficult, unpleasant situation so much so that it detracted significantly ... Read more

We boarded the ship in Budapest after an interesting cab ride from the airport with a driver who did not speak much English. We were made welcome by the Viking Danube crew and offered a light luncheon while our cabin was made ready. The ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I can honestly say that it was the best vacation I've ever had. For the first time I didn't know what day it was, and I didn't care. The cruise managed to be both hectic and relaxing at the same time. Hectic, ... Read more

I sailed from Passau on Viking Danube. Viking do things to a very high standard. Their ships are well designed, the food is quite something considering what must be a relatively small galley, the cabins and berths are very comfortable and ... Read more

The weather was perfect for cruising down the Danube. We began this adventure in Budapest, then on to Slovakia, Vienna, and ending in Passau, Germany. The cities were breath-taking and our tours were nothing less than awesome. My only ... Read more
