Our first river cruise on the Viking Baldur as we like Europe and the idea of seeing many beautiful places/countries appealed to us. We also like that it's less crowded on the riverboats and you only unpack once. The ship was wonderful ... Read more

I figured I may only get this one chance to see Europe so I chose the Grand European river cruise! I totally enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere on board ship. The scenery along the rivers was most beautiful. The excursions kept us moving every ... Read more

For my 65th we wanted a grand trip, so we chose the 14 day cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest with an extension to Prague. The Viking Cruise was quite good but ultimately somewhat disappointing. The main issue was due to a problem ... Read more
