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

This was our first river cruise, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We started with a pre-cruise stay in Prague at the Hilton-Prague (beautiful hotel). Pre-booked two city tours (a walking/boat/dinner tour and a food tour the next day). Both ... Read more

This was our first time on a river cruise, after 4 ocean cruises, and we could not be more thrilled with how it went. We chose Viking because of the itinerary, but everything about this trip exceeded our expectations. The ship was great, ... 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

The cruise was excellent. Comfortable room- that we weren't in very much. The food was good - I gained 5 pounds on the trip. My husband and I enjoyed all the excursions. We also stayed the two extra days in Budapest which was all we ... Read more

This was our first experience of river cruising but wish we had done it earlier. The crew were wonderful and couldn't do enough to ensure we had a wonderful time. The ship was the perfect size not too many people on board. We weren't ... Read more

Ours was a travel group of 7 adults, who took 3 double cabins and a single cabin. 3 of us had been on Viking cruises in the past; 4 were new to river cruising. All seemed to have a wonderful time during the entire trip. Cabin Staff was ... Read more

Right from the very start of boarding the ship in Budapest, we had an amazing time. Every single member of the staff on board was absolutely brilliant, they could not have been more friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They ... Read more

While my husband and I have taken several cruises before, we had never done a river cruise, nor cruised with Viking. I will definitely be cruising with them again in the future! Everything was so well-organized, the ship was just the right ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, and, of course, we loved being on vacation and enjoyed it very much-we always enjoy being on vacation. That being said there were some areas that could have been improved: -the carpets on the ship needed ... Read more

Viking River Cruises has gotten river cruising down to an art. We flew from Seattle to London to Budapest. Viking arranged our air transportation and transfers. When we arrived in Budapest, a smiling Viking agent greeted us. We waited for ... Read more

We did the Danube cruise with the Prague extension. A few thoughts: 1. Unlike other reviewers, we found the food to be good - - not gourmet restaurant but we never had a bad meal and the staff did all they could to accomodate you. A few ... Read more

After a very rocky start with Viking's air department (read: do NOT use them), we boarded the Legend in Passau, where we'd added a 3 night pre-cruise stay. Viking had a large concierge desk located at our hotel, the Hilton Prague. Both the ... Read more
