As beginners with Viking River cruises, we thought the Danube experience would give us the opportunity to see several European countries and cities, especially Vienna and Budapest in a safe and convenient way. We thought that in our ... Read more

This was our first river cruise. We have taken larger ship cruises before. We had visited Germany several years before in the Fall and wanted to go back during the Christmas markets. The price of the cruise was one that we could not pass ... Read more

We are seasoned ocean cruisers who mainly travel in Europe but this was our first river cruise. All those years of watching Masterpiece Theatre and we finally succumbed to the lure of Viking's enticing advertisements! Well. Let me say ... Read more

This cruise was very well enjoyed by everyone in our party. We had three balcony rooms in our group. We booked late and there were no lower categories available. The accommodations were very nice and the crew/staff were excellent. ... Read more

We spent much of our "cruise" riding around in buses. If I had wanted to take a bus tour it would have been less expensive. We spent a day and a half traveling by bus consequently we had much less time to,spend at our ... Read more

We had such a remarkable experience on our first Viking tour on the Seine, Paris to Normandy. We were delighted to have the opportunity to tour an area of Europe that was new to us. Arriving in Budapest we were met at the airport and ... Read more

This was our first cruise and also our 40th wedding anniversary. The Viking personnel were amazing, and the service exceptional. Most of the land tours were excellent- with great guides. Food and service were fantastic. The ... Read more

We got to Budapest too late to do much of anything. The Danube River ( which Viking never tells you even when asked) was low which we now know is common. We were forced to change boats from the Tor to the Var and couldn't use top deck ... Read more

KLM was singularly unhelpful at every turn: wrong gates posted, cancelled flights, delayed flights, misconnections. We missed Budapest altogether. No advance warning by Viking of the possibility of a ship swap (which had happened several ... Read more

My wife and I, along with friends, took a Viking Cruise on the Danube departing September 25th, 2015 from Nuremburg, Germany. It was planned to arrive in Budapest on October 1st. It did not. Our Viking Cruise was a total ... Read more

I have traveled on several river cruises. The other three were pleasant. This one on the Danube was miserable. The staff were evasive and untruthful. The concierge was not to be found at all during the day, we found out that she was ... Read more

This was our first Viking cruise, but NOT our first river cruise (we did Avalon on the Rhine in 2013). In my opinion, Viking compares very poorly to Avalon for a variety of reasons: the cabins on the Tor are smaller, the staff was far ... Read more

Booking: After many ocean cruises this was our first river cruise. It was one of Viking’s free/almost free air promotions, and everyone we talked to got air either for free or $95 pp return from North America. We had the basic ... Read more

Viking River Cruises are very bare bones with no amenities on board. No spa, no casino, no workout room, no room service, no food except at meal time, limited food choices, for example you can't have an appetizer and a salad, must choose ... Read more

First river cruise and it was a pleasant experience. Much more intimate, and vastly different, from ocean cruising. Viking Tor was one of the new generation river boats with all of the newest innovations and upgrades. We chose the Veranda ... Read more

I have done at least 8 higher end cruises and had come to expect you get what you pay for. Not on Viking, so save your dollars and book on a cheaper line. I booked for the Romantic Danube on the longship Tor in June of 2015. For the ... Read more

For all the times I've seen the Viking River Cruise commercial on Downton Abbey, nothing prepared me for this remarkable journey. The Viking Tor sparkles from stem to stern. The light-filled ship is a pleasure from the exceptional crew to ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, and we were not disappointed. A 5-star rating for Viking! We opted for the pre-trip in Prague. We were met by a Viking representative at the airport, who found us before we could find him. The staff at ... Read more
