An excellent journey from start to finish. You get what you pay for. I went with my father on this 7 night cruise from Budapest to Nuremburg. This was our first experience of cruising of any kind. Not knowing what to expect we were ... Read more

I wished to go on a River Cruise for my 70th Birthday. I must admit that the Viking Freya was, in my opinion the BEST Cruise I have ever been on, maybe because of the size. It was Fantastic, Fabulous and loads of Fun. Everyone on ... Read more

Viking Freya was a beautiful ship with pleasant and spotlessly clean amenities. The cabin fulfilled our needs for beds, storage space, closet space, bath space and was cheerful with a large plant on the make-up counter. Added plus, was ... Read more

The food was amazing. The shore excursions were phenomenal. Some staff were at times a bit rude but overall very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed having the boat only half full because there was so much room and flexibility in the dining ... Read more
