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

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

The Viking staff took care of us from start to finish. Booking was like visiting with a friend, and he answered all our questions (many before we asked them). Viking met us in the airport in Budapest, and stayed with us until we had our ... Read more
