Just returned from a Viking river Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. This was first river cruise and we must say that we were glad that we booked with Viking. We have done all kinds of big ship cruising which we have thoroughly enjoyed ... Read more

We sailed on the Viking Skadi (The Grand European Tour) from August 20 - September 3. This was our second cruise with Viking and it did not disappoint. We flew into Amsterdam 3 days early so we could explore Amsterdam prior to our ... Read more

We have been to Europe several times but this cruise took us to places we had not been before. Viking Cruises and this particular cruise had been recommended to us by friends on two separate occasions. The food was excellent and the ... Read more

It was by far the most enjoyable and relaxing tour we have ever been on. Being on a ship with only 170 passengers was probably what made it special. The tour director, Gary was unbelievable. He was with us from when we embarked, he was ... Read more

This was our first experience as river cruisers and we would rate it 10 out of 10. We travelled with two other couples, all of us of varying ages. The included excursions are suitable for almost all levels of fitness and mobility. ... Read more

We did a pre-cruise visit to Prague. The city tour provided by Viking was informational and gave us a nice history of the city. Worth the visit. We boarded the boat at Budapest ( ship name Skadi) and it went smoothly. The cabin ... Read more

We have been on a Viking River Cruise before. The experience then was excellent. We have reviewed other firms advertisements but have seen nothing that has convinced us to switch away from Viking. This cruise, Tulips and Windmills, was ... Read more

We were not keen on going on an ocean cruise and decided we would try a river cruise and choose to go on a Viking Danube Waltz river cruise. We choose December as prices were very reasonable then and we loved the idea of seeing all the ... Read more

This was cruising for the totally gutless traveler. If you are totally new of overseas travel it might be good otherwise, no. EVERYTHING is totally scripted you are on a bus tour most days while your ship is "sailing through the ... Read more

We are deeply disappointed in Viking. This was our first cruise with Viking and definitely our last. The cruise was not at all what we expected. We never felt the luxury they promote in their brochures and TV ads. Instead we paid a ... Read more

Reading of low water problems before departure, an email from Viking while in Prague indicating a different embarkation point (Komarom, 60 mile west of Budapest), did not bode well. Some pre-cruise Prague passengers did receive the email ... Read more
