What first strikes you as you step onboard Viking Gullveig, one of Viking's numerous Longship-class sisters? Sunlight. Streaming in through the glass-enclosed, two-story atrium is enough light to allow real ...

Sailed three weeks ago
We have sailed many ocean cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We liked the idea of being able to see multiple cities in Central Europe while unpacking only once. Overall, the cruise was OK - not sure it is a great value for the ... Read more

What a wonderful way to explore Europe! The ship, the views, the food, the care, and the ports were all great. It allowed us to have a comfortable overview of Germany, Austria, and Hungary, with a view toward coming back some day and ... Read more

It was an intimate setting on the Viking Longship. A maximum of 190 passengers, but there were only 120 of us. We were treated like royalty. We sailed down the Danube to Budapest, spending time in Vienna and other cities. The ship ... Read more

I need to say, first, that this cruise was the best vacation EVER!! I picked this cruise 6 weeks before it sailed. I'm not usually that impulsive, but Viking had just introduced a rate for single vacationers. Before my wife passed, we ... Read more

We chose this based on a recommendation from a friend. We also wanted to see these countries, but work out of one base. We cannot praise this experience with Viking enough! All the employees we encountered were ... Read more

We had never been on a River Cruise and friends recommended Viking. We really didn't know what to expect on this excursion but liked being able to see many of the sites in Europe without having to pack and unpack everyday. Let me say ... Read more

We wanted to see tulips in the Netherlands in bloom. In spite of our early arrival we were taken directly to our ship. Because we had flown during the night, we were too tired to attempt to do anything on our own in the city. ... Read more

Fantastic service, food, and accommodations. Very organized both on board and on shore. Included tours were enjoyable and informative. The Hoorn homestead visit was great. We did some optionals: Haarlem, Agriport, Open Air Museum, ... Read more

This was my third cruise with Viking, having sailed with them to China and Germany, and I really wanted to see The Netherlands and Belgium. I had such a wonderful time on previous cruises, I knew I'd have a grand time on this one. ... Read more

This was my second cruise with Viking and my experience was as positive this time as the first. We did the Tulips and Windmills trip that included several stops in the Netherlands as well as two stops in Belgium. In spring, this is a ... Read more

This is my 5th Viking river cruise. Tours in Amsterdam and Bruge were terrific with tours to smaller cities like Hoorn a real bonus. The highlight was the tour of the tulip garden show. The 1-year- old ship was very nice, with the ... Read more

My wife Nancy and myself have been cruising very actively during the past decade... the problem being that we've had to deal with a dwindling selection of exotic and historic ports as time has passed. We do not want to give up the ... Read more

Three months prior to our cruise, Viking was most gracious and accommodating with taking care of all our travel arrangements from LA to Budapest. After taking two spectacular European ocean cruises in the last 18 months, both my husband ... Read more

Upon arrival in Budapest we were informed by the Viking pick up that we would have to be bused 1 1/2 hours to where the boat was docked because of the low river level. The boat was docked in an industrial looking site with a view of the ... Read more

We just returned from a very disappointing Viking Romantic Danube River Cruise. Because the Danube River was low, we didn't start the cruise in Erlangen, cruise to Nuremburg, cruise to Regensburg, etc., instead we boarded the boat three ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Viking. The first was terrific. This one was very disappointing. Although we certainly understand that low water levels can sometimes happen, this was not the first time Viking had to deal with this issue ... Read more

Our cruise started out BAD because we were not informed that the 20th of August is a Hungarian National Holiday and that we would NOT be able to get a taxi to the ship from the train station. There was no information available at the ... Read more

This was our second Viking cruise. The first on the Rhine was lovely. And while we know that Viking cannot be responsible for the Danube running out of water, we felt like Viking was not open and honest about how they would handle this ... Read more

Background: This was our first river cruise. My wife and I have been on most major ocean cruises (45) to nearly all continents. Point being is that we are no novice at cruising. We have been on excellent to bad cruises and have rolled ... Read more

The Viking Gullveig cruise up the Danube was simply a delightful experience. From the beginning to end Viking made sure guests were informed and taken care of. We missed our connecting flight to Budapest. We called Viking Gullveig and ... Read more

A few things you should consider before taking the cruise. 1. Internet is poor. Viking will tell you the internet connection is great (I called twice beforehand), and you can place video calls and watch video. This is not the case. Their ... Read more
