The Grand European River Cruise was not a disappointment. It was our first river cruise and we appreciated seeing so many cities and historical sites in one trip, The smaller ship with fewer passengers gave everyone a chaqnce to get to ... Read more

This was my second river cruise and first Viking adventure. We ran into some difficulties due to the low water levels in the Danube. We had a change in our longship. We used the Baldur from Amsterdam to Nurenberg. We had all of our ... Read more

Very comfortable cabin with faultless service. Staff enjoyed what they did and it showed with unexpected extras. Changing ships because of low water is certainly not the fault of Viking and they would very much wished it didn't have to ... Read more

We were a group of eight who all had a great time. While we had to change boats at Nuremburg the staff did all they could to make this a seamless transition. Staff were great on both boats and were most welcoming, nothing was too much ... Read more

It was a great trip. Even though we had to move to the Baldur due to low river issues, it was all pretty seamless and we had no issues. The two ships, the Magni and the Baldur, are identical. Our quarters on the Baldur were exactly like ... Read more

We loved the cruise. We started off with a few glitches with Delta air costing us our first night in Budapest and the drought causing us to leave our first ship for the Magni in Nuremberg. The staff and crew made the transition possible ... Read more

The interary was wonderful and the staff on both the Baldur and Magni were great. It was not their fault that the rivers were so low and we had to change ships. They gave us two free excursions, an open bar night and the transition by bus ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. The ships (Magni and Baldur) were excellent, including the staffs. The Danube became too low near Passau, Germany, so we merely switched ships and continued on our way to Amsterdam with hardly a glitch. ... Read more

Just loved the trip. It was my first river cruise and was afraid 2 weeks would be too long but it was perfect. We were on the Magni, a newer ship offered by Viking. We had excellent and friendly staff. Each day had a different experience. ... Read more

This was our trip of a lifetime, and we anticipated the best...we were not disappointed. If we did cruises on a regular basis, perhaps we would have a more informed ability to review (to be critical!!), but the whole experience lived up to ... Read more

Like most of the passengers on this river cruise, I fell for Viking's relentless promotions and advertising. In particular, visiting the Christmas markets sounded like fun. So, off my husband and I went. Embarkation went smoothly. Lunch ... Read more
