We sailed on the Njord this year--Romantic Danube. Our first Viking cruise was on Alsvin in 2015, the Tulips/Windmill cruise. We loved it so much that we returned this year with another couple. We'd like to make this an annual trip. ... Read more

My wife's big dream was to visit The Christmas Markets in Europe and we were not disappointed. We took the Christmas Market Cruise on the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest, and while the weather was cold and rainy, that did not dampen our ... Read more

This review is way to long to tell. But I will recap .....We flew into Budapest one week early and rented a lovely apartment on the river. This turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The Njord arrived on Friday 10/23. We boarded ... Read more

We chose Viking for the ports and excursions they offer. We have heard many horror stories of cruises that became bus tours because of low river levels, high river levels and other natural hiccups. After checking the river levels on the ... Read more

Weather was a little rainy and cool, but it didn't stop us from taking advantage of every tour/excursion available. This was our first trip along the Danube and the towns and scenery were wonderful. This is a great way to see a part of ... Read more

I clocked at least 9-10 hours more on a bus than I should have been. Viking should have given us a chance to cancel and/or rebook, as they knew well in advance that there had been no rain and the Danube was too low to travel on. Original ... Read more

This was a first cruise for us; we did this so we would not have to pack and unpack. However, on the second day we were told that we might have to pack up and go to another ship. Needless to say we were not happy at all; sure enough we did ... Read more

This is our third Viking River Cruise, and the only that has been affected by water levels. In this case, the level of the Danube was too low for the ships between Regensburg and Melk. However, Viking handled it well, unlike some of my ... Read more

We vacation often with over 25 ocean cruises. We were sold & expected a relaxing, stress less cruise, one which docked in the heart of the city and included a choice of tours. Instead, we got early morning bus rides and strenuous ... Read more

The riverboat was small and had very little activity or entertainment. It is geared toward 75+ of age, so if you plan on staying up past 9:00 p.m. this is not the cruise for you. The M.C. was annoying and pandered to the guests in order to ... Read more

This review is way to long to tell. But I will recap .....Our trip was booked and paid for far in advance and all together. First of all, they split our group of 4 into 2 different flights coming back and one person that paid for ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. We have done numerous ocean cruises and enjoyed them but were always put off by the large crowds and the "nickel and dime" attitude of the cruise lines. We were greatly looking forward to this ... Read more

My wife and I arrived in Budapest 4 days early to explore that beautiful city on our own, so, of course, our first contact with the Viking staff was when we boarded the Njord. From the first moment we were treated with great care and ... Read more
