IViking Njord was one of the original sextuplets -- branded "Longships" named for Norse gods -- to hit the water in 2012. German-built Viking Njord and its sister ships represent a new take on river ...

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

Best cruise ever. Been on about ten ocean cruises; this was first river cruise. Ship was immaculate, food was wonderful. Great value for the price. Shore excursion guides were experts on their country and answered all questions. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see Vienna. Unfortunately we were disappointed in the time spent there. Not enough time in Vienna. By the time we toured the church we did not have time to enjoy coffee and pastry. Needed another day at least in ... Read more

We had taken a couple of ocean cruises and just hated them, but our friends convinced us that a Viking River Cruise was different. They ships were smaller, they said, with far fewer passengers. The food was excellent, the wine was endless, ... Read more

This was our second Viking River Cruise, the first being in China two years ago. Viking did such a great job in China, and they repeated the wonderful experience on the Romantic Danube river cruise this year. We began with the pre-cruise ... Read more

Always wanted to see that part of the world, love cruises (especially in smaller groups), and heard great things about Viking Longboat cruises. It all came together this year when other family members were able to enjoy it with me. ... Read more

We have been on many cruises in the states and in Europe, but this was our first river cruise. Viking was the obvious choice and we were not disappointed. We flew into Paris, transferred planes and then on to Nuremberg. Everything went ... Read more

We tried an Alaskan ocean cruise and didn't like being on the huge ship with the crowd of people. We decided we'd try the smaller river cruise and had heard excellent things about the Viking river cruises. It was a wonderful experience. ... Read more

We had taken a Viking River Cruise last year and were extremely impressed with service, food, level of quality all around. The vessel and rooms were immaculate. All of the staff were warm and welcoming, treating us as if we were the only ... Read more

The time frame fit into my schedule and the price was within my desire. Even though the river didn't cooperate with my trip, I still enjoyed the ship's staff. They did everything to make this cruise enjoyable. Because we did more ... 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
