I wanted to do a Danube cruise. The staff was outstanding, it is difficult to single out any of them, but the concierge and entertainment director were certainly wonderful. Enjoyed the stops and excursions, even though the weather was ... Read more

We chose a river cruise for our very first cruise experience because we did not want to travel with thousands of people on an ocean cruise. We added a pre-extentsion in Budapest to have additional time to explore Hungary (birthplace of my ... Read more

The food was excellent. Always lots of fresh vegetables and fruit as well as gourmet entrees. The pastries were great just like the European bakery shops on shore. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting new friends during dining times and have ... Read more

This was our first cruise of any kind and it was a wonderful experience! The riverboat was a nice way to travel and did not make me feel as though I was on water. The cities chosen for the tour were beautiful places, some that I had never ... Read more

This cruise had been on my bucket list for quite some time. An acquaintance had taken two Viking River Cruises and spoke very highly of the service. Indeed the service was first class all the way, from unlimited water and coffee to the ... Read more

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

This was my 2nd Viking Riverboat Cruise. As before the experience was amazing. The Christmas Markets is something everyone should see and experience. Our ship the Tor was impeccable. Service was wonderful, the cabins attendants ... 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

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

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
