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

There simply was no detail missed by the Viking folks: The web site answered all of our questions; the pre-cruise mailed package included a historical booklet as well as luggage tags and cruise schedule; the perfect air connections; the ... 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

We sailed from Passau to Budapest and stayed a few days extra in Budapest. This ship is great, we had a Stateroom on A Deck with French Balcony which was perfect - even if the ship had verandas we would not have paid extra for this because ... Read more

The best part of Vikiing is their marketing. Among the worst problems with our cruise was the rafting up of up to five boats at a location. I did not pay for an interior cabin and looking into another persons bedroom and bathroom is not ... Read more

The Danube cruise from Passau to Budapest was wonderful right from the start. Our cab pulled up to the ship, and the porters were right out there ready to take our luggage. In fact, they were actually too fast. We are so used to having at ... Read more

My wife and I were first time river cruisers on the Viking Legend. As luck would have it, our cruise started the day before historic flooding that made the last floods of 2002 look tame. In fact, the floods in Passau were almost 2' higher ... Read more

First, instead of canceling the cruise due to high water they withheld information and convinced everyone that they would be sailing and moved them to the ship outside Budapest by bus. Later we found out that Viking had decided to cancel ... Read more
