We just returned from Viking's Romantic Danube Cruise from Budapest to Nuremburg and had a wonderful time! We chose this tour because I really wanted to see these cities and our extension to Prague. And we chose Viking because of the cost, ... Read more

We choose it because we saw Viking had great reviews with many options. We heard sooo much about river crazing and couldn't wait to try it. And the destinations sounded sooo wonderful. We booked this trip about 15 months ahead and we ... Read more

We'd done two previous Viking River Cruises (Amsterdam to Basel and Prague to Paris) and our last tour guide said we absolutely would love the cruise on the Danube, so we took her recommendation. She was right! Budapest is an absolutely ... Read more

My travel agent recommended it, and he has never steered me wrong, it was a father daughter vacation and we loved every minute of it. The crew, cabin stewards, everything was amazing. I think our favorite spot was Durnstein and Melk. We ... Read more

Actually our trip was longer, we did the Castles & Legends tour which adds two nights in Munich, two nights in Salzburg before taking you to Passau to board the ship. My rating for the cruise portion is definitely five stars - I had a ... Read more

From the time we landed in Munich to our debarkation in Budapest, Viking handled everything smoothly and seamlessly. Our hotel rooms in Munich and Salzburg were extraordinarily good, and the cabin aboard the Viking Legend was comfortable ... Read more

We sailed on the Viking Legend from Budapest to Passau, and what an amazing trip! The crew were all friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home; the guided tours were fun and yet I learned more than perhaps years of history ... Read more

We chose Viking because advertising works! We were extremely pleased with the cruise and Viking itself. Service was outstanding, the food tasty and the excursions generally well done. We picked a time of year when the weather can still ... Read more

One night in December 2014 a friend and I were talking about our "bucket lists" and I mentioned doing a river cruise. She had already been on 2 river cruises with Viking and said she would like to do another. After some research ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had taken another Viking river cruise in 2014 down the Rhine and were very impressed by the overall experience we had with Viking. The Danube cruise was even better. The cruise/land tour package that we ... Read more

The ship was lovely. At one port we had to walk through two other ships that were not Viking ships, we noticed that our ship was much nicer than either of the others. The cabin was spacious enough, and was better laid out than any other ... Read more

Based on TV ads chose this cruise because of price and the places it visited on the Danube. The experience was beyond our expectations. The only negative was the 4+ hour layover in Heathrow on the way to Budapest. The ship was spacious ... Read more

We loved our Viking cruise. We have cruised with a number of cruise lines on both ocean liners and small ships but this was our best experience so far. We loved the casual attitude and the friendliness of the staff and fellow passengers. ... Read more

I always swore to never take a cruise, however several friends persuaded me otherwise. My biggest challenge when I returned was to find a "favorite" part of the trip. Every part of the vacation was magnificent. The ... Read more

Although we have traveled to Europe several times, the Danube Waltz cruise on the Viking Legend was the most fun and relaxing trip we have taken recently. Our favorite stop was Salzburg, where coffee and a pastry at Furst's was simply ... Read more

This was our first cruise, if I have to dress for dinner, I won't go. We went 3 days early to spend some time in Munich (was stationed in the area while in the army). Munich should be a pre-cruise choice. Took the train to Passau and had ... Read more

What a wonderful experience. We had taken a couple of 'big boat' cruises previously, but this smaller ship met our needs perfectly. I have MS and have become somewhat disabled over time, but the size of this ship was MUCH better for me. ... Read more

This was our second Viking river cruise and we were not disappointed, everything was pretty much perfect. The ship is not one of the new longships but we found it to be very comfortable. It always looked clean and tidy. There was plenty of ... Read more

We sailed on the Legend from Passau in July and found every aspect of our holiday excellent. The ship was one of the older ones in the fleet, but we found it well presented and it had all the facilities we wanted. We had not sought a ... Read more
