One of the original "Longships" - so named for Norse Gods - Viking Aegir and its sister ships represent a new take on river hospitality, one in which a sleek, Scandinavian ambience is the antithesis of river's ...

Our Viking River Cruise from Budapest to Bucharest was fantastic in every way. I had been reluctant to go on any form of cruise previously and had finally agreed to try this one. I would go on another one in a heartbeat! We chose this ... Read more

We wanted a river cruise because my wife was reluctant to go on an ocean cruise. We also wanted to visit Eastern Europe and thought that a Viking River Cruise would be both a good way to try a water travel experience as well as structured ... Read more

We recently returned from a Viking cruise on the Danube. The parts of the cruise planned by Viking are well done. One guide in Budapest was awful but the rest were outstanding. The Best of Budapest optional excursion is expensive ... Read more

We are not cruise types although we are in every way the target audience for Viking. But a year and a half ago we got a brochure in the mail (we get a lot of travel brochures) and noticed that a booking in 2016 would be a two-fer. We ... Read more

Travel arrangements were excellent. Viking representatives met us at the airport and then, on return, took care of us right up to airport security. The planning of ports and shore excursions demonstrated extensive experience with the ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an introduction to river cruising, and to get a good sense of the route from Budapest to Amsterdam. Although I had seen quite a bit of Europe growing up, my wife had not had the same opportunity. This was a great ... Read more

We have always wanted to go to Amsterdam. I also love flowers, and wanted to see the fields of tulips. We had been on the cruise on the Danube two years ago and had had a positive experience. We chose the pre-cruise option to be in ... Read more

I heard good things about it. I know that the Rheine River has many natural beauties, castles, little villages, vinehards, etc. It is pictures perfect. I also knew that Viking does everything right. They are thoughtful and very ... Read more

First river cruise and wanted to see the tulips in bloom. We learned a lot of WWII history and that was an unexpected bonus. Service on board was wonderful and guided tours exceptional. We took walking tours in both the Netherlands and ... Read more

Best vacation ever! We wanted to see the tulips in bloom so we picked the Tulips & Windmills River Cruise. Amsterdam was impressive, so friendly, so many first class museums, so many bridges and canals to walk, so many photo ops, ... Read more

I have avoided any form of a ship/boat cruise because I didn't want to be limited to the rules and regs and being confined to an endless sea. The idea of short cruises to ports of interest and still have my "stuff" in the same ... Read more

Had never been to Europe, so it was on my bucket list. Flight and Embarkation was smooth with no problems with lost luggage or transportation from the airport. The ship was very clean and the cabin was comfortable. Room service ... Read more

We have always wanted to go on a cruise and this cruise helped us check off many boxes on our bucket list. The crew of the Aegir were so warm and welcoming that we felt like we were home and not in a foreign country. The ship was clean ... Read more

Viking always does a great job. This was our 7th river cruise with Viking and we've done one big ship, the Viking Star (8 in total with Viking). This cruise started in Budapest and went to Bucharest. I made our own flight arrangements ... Read more

Viking represents that you have free time in ports after the complimentary morning tour. Not so much. In 23 days of cruising we were tied up within walking distance of the sites for only two stops! All other stops we would have had to ... Read more

This was my first cruise (although my wife has been on a couple of others). We cruised from Bucharest to Budapest, and then went on to Prague by bus. I enjoyed the cruise; the boat was very comfortable (we had a balcony stateroom B), the ... Read more

This was a very good experience for our first river cruise. I like Viking's business model where you pay up front and don't have to worry about paying for tours, lunch and dinner beverages, and much of the tipping. The crew was pleasant ... Read more

This review is about our river cruise in Russia aboard the Viking Akun. If you've ever thought about going to Russia--or even if like us, you hadn't, we want to encourage you to go now. Russia proved to be so much more and so different ... Read more

We took the European Sojourn, departing Amsterdam on August 19th, 2015. Supposed to be on the Embla, but, low water on the Danube prevented it from getting back up to Amsterdam. So, we departed on the Viking Lif from Rotterdam. Sail ... Read more

Our 15 day Viking River Cruise was both a joy and a heartbreak. The trip was unfortunately hit by the failure of one of the main engines. We were told about this breakdown the first day. We were kept appraised of the problem and the ... Read more
