So, the sad thing is that I know Viking wants to be the best in the business. But, they did not deliver what I purchased - a river cruise. A long-anticipated and saved-for vacation dream turned into a nightmare of long daily bus rides ... Read more

Wanted to get the most out of our first trip to Europe and were able to add three days in Prague as a pre-cruise destination. Prague was definitely worth the visit. Great hotel, food, people, cultural sites, etc. We also enjoyed our ... Read more

Prague for three days prior to our journey was amazing. The viking staff took care of all of our needs as far as embarkation and disembarkation. Our hotel in Prague was wonderful with Viking staff members to help in every way! The lovely ... Read more

It was our first river cruise. The rooms were very nice, all thought the beds were a bit long. We would have had much more walk around space with a 6.5 ft bed. The bathroom was spacious with heated floors. Plenty of storage.The cruise was ... Read more

Friends were going so I decided to join them. I had been in Budapest previously (started a Grand Circle Tour from there going north on Danube) and love that city. The ship was very nice. The food was excellent. The cruise director was ... Read more

We wanted to go to Romania. Especially Transylvania. This was the only cruise that went to Romania. The tours in the other countries were fabulous, especially Hungary. One of the best activities was the in-home visit to a resident's ... Read more

We chose this cruise because 11 friends were taking this cruise and we wanted to be with them. However, the ports that we visited beginning with Bucharest and ending with Budapest (we did extend our travels to include Prague) were ... Read more

We had a great time on our Romantic Danube river cruise. The staff were uniformly awesome and anxious to please. We especially liked having a tour included in each port of call. Our tours were, for the most part, extremely well done. I ... Read more

We wanted to see the Christmas Markets along the Danube. The Romantic Danube itinerary offered just that and gave us what we thought would be the best ports. We were particularly impressed with Budapest, Melk, Vienna and Nuremberg. We wish ... Read more

We were more than pleased with our Romantic Danube Christmas Markets cruise. Viking managed to exceed our expectations in every way. We were happy with our cabin, a french balcony, which was small but comfortable and usable. The dining ... Read more

Although our river cruise did not start off on a positive note because of low water levels and we had to change boats twice, I found Viking to be very efficient in ensuring that everything went smoothly. Stay on both Viking boats ... Read more

The cruise was better than I expected. I will say that due to the water levels of the Danube we had to change ships half way thru. The entire cruise crew handled it well. The only trouble I experienced was having to pack up again. But ... Read more

Before we even left they changed our ship (Atla) because of low water. You would think that they would have told us this was an on going problem for months and maybe more problems with the low water along the way. After repacking and a 4 ... Read more

Full Disclosure: We were on both the Viking Atla (which was supposed to be our ship originally) and the Viking Jarl due to a ship swap mid-cruise. I may leave reviews for both ships. We flew Lufthansa through Viking Air (we did the ... Read more

My main issue with this cruise was that I had called prior to the cruise and specifically asked about the issue regarding water levels in the Danube. I was told that there was no problem with our trip at that time AND that, if there were, ... Read more

We wanted to find a way to see more of Europe and a river cruise such as this is a great way to do it. We added an upfront visit to Prague to our cruise itinerary. Viking cruise line is well run and organized. Very passenger friendly. ... Read more

This was our first trip on Viking and it exceeded my expectations. We did the cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest and I'd recommend taking the trip in that direction as it builds up from charming small cities in Germany and Austria to the ... Read more

This was our very first trip on Viking, and our very first trip to Europe, and we wouldn't have changed a thing. From the time we landed in Nuremberg, to 8 days later when we were taken back to the airport, we were treated like royalty. ... Read more
