Viking Waltz, Budapest to Passau, August 2014 on the Viking Prestige. Just returned from the holiday. OK, I’m easily pleased but I can’t say I’ve ever experienced anything like it. It was 5 star all the way. Ship - ... Read more

More that I had imagined! I have always heard of these great European River cruises from friends and fellow cruise goers but I never would have imagined the level of service they offer. I've had the opportunity to travel to Europe over a ... Read more

We chose Viking because we had heard very good things about the ships, the staff, and cuisine. However, we chose an older model of ship (vs. the newer longship) because we had heard that the interior had a warmer, friendlier look/feel. We ... Read more

If we had to do again, we would add on 2 days to our stay in Prague and we would NOT have chosen the Lobkowicz Palace extension mainly because of all the steps involved which caused me to injure my hip. I actually had to opt for the ... Read more

We signed up for this tour in December of 2012, at which point only the lower level cabins were available. In hindsight, we are glad we didn’t spend the extra. We then heard nothing more from Viking until a few weeks before our ... Read more

It was a really wonderful experience. The Viking staff were always attentive and courteous. The food and service were also excellent. It was great to travel with 188 people rather than 2,000 plus on a cruise liner. The bus ride portions of ... Read more

Like many other reviewers, we were experienced ocean cruisers but first time river cruisers, and we loved it. The small boat meant getting to know people and having time to talk. I worried I would be bored---not at all. We're planning our ... Read more
