This was our third river cruise with Viking, and we have never been disappointed. We began with a two-day pre cruise stay in Amsterdam in a lovely, reasonable b&b (Clemens Hotel) near the Anne Frank House. The extra days allowed us ... Read more

We started our cruise with a 2 day stay in Amsterdam which was good as we had plane departure problems at JFK and then missed a connecting flight at Heathrow and arrived in Amsterdam later than planned. We stayed at a great hotel that was ... Read more

Heard great things about VIKING, and wanted to try it out. There was a special, 2 for 1 with free airfare, so we booked it. AMAZING!!! Loved all the ports of call. River was exceptionally low, so we had to change ships 3 times, but it ... Read more

Although we've traveled extensively this was our first river cruise. And this is the only to go! We added a pre-cruise stay in Amsterdam. What a fun city! The canal boat trip, Rijksmuseum and tour of the red light district were excellent. ... Read more

If you are going to do this River Cruise make sure to book an extra 3 or 4 days in Budapest either at the beginning or end of your tour depending on where you begin. Budapest was a jewel of the trip and we stayed at the Hilton Budapest in ... Read more

Enjoyed my time on both the Alsvin and the Ingvi. Low water on the Danube caused us to pack mid-trip and be transferred to another ship. The process went very smoothly and we didn't miss out on any tours, etc. A well thought out process ... Read more

We chose Viking because we wanted to see Europe. We decided on the Grand European Tour. We loved the fact we could see several cities/countries and stay in one room and not have to pack up every time. We can't sing enough praises about ... Read more
