Ship Facts: Viking Idun Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Amsterdam to Budapest River cruise
The Idun is brand new and Viking has done a great job with the ship. The staff is well trained and tries hard.We really liked the itinerary, the pace and attention to care and detail.Guides were excellent.The entertainment brought on board was very good.

Unfortunately we felt the food was inconsistent and rather mediocre. Very bland.

Cuts of meat were often not choice. We were disappointed after experiencing something much better on our previous Viking tour.

There is no security on board whatsoever. People got on board who did not belong there. Noone was checking any kind of id or contents of pkgs.

Sanitation was at times lacking. Hand sanitizers were present but noone was watching that this was done. About 1/3 of our ship was sick which was very disconcerting. Returning to the ship, hor doevres were sometimes served with no care for who touched what.

This was a maiden voyage for this itinerary and this ship. There was a lot of confusion disembarking and a lack of knowledge on setting up the ramp to disembark. The crew was not prepared for this.

If doing another river cruise we will probably look at and compare other companies.
