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

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

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
