After thoroughly enjoying a Viking cruise on the Rhine a couple of years ago, my wife and I decided to cruise the Danube this year. The last half or so of the cruise was impacted by a river blockage resulting from a grounded barge. Low ... Read more

We were not impressed with the cruise. We HAD been impressed by the pre-trip communications including the emailed recipes, which set a high bar for cuisine. I must first say that the staff were marvelous, and the piano player Bobby ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was recommended to us by friends. We were looking for a smaller boat hoping our vacation would be less hectic than some of the ocean cruises we have experienced. We wanted to experience the culture of the ... Read more

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

First time to Europe. Wanted a non-thinking experience where Viking would take care of every detail - and they did. Staff were quite nice. Food was very good. Excursions were well done and the tour guides were very knowledgeable ... 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

Viking does it right. It's not just the ship but the entire crew. All are bright, intelligent and empowered to make your experience right. I particularly like the Viking "culture" from the way they communicate to how things ... 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

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

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
