Ship Facts: Viking Prestige Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Fantastic Trip Aboard the Viking Prestige
I have nothing but good things to say about this cruise. It's definitely different from the typical ocean cruise to the Caribbean - this ship holds less than 200 people so you really get to know the other guests. The crew was awesome in every respect; kind, friendly, attentive, hard-working and just did a great job. I felt like we were saying goodbye to friends after the cruise was over.

At each port we were met by local tour guides who provided us with lots of info about each destination. We had a decent amount of free time to do extra exploring, shopping or eating. Our ports were Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Melk, Vienna and Budapest. The cruise through the Wachau Valley was breathtaking and the ship had a regional buffet/picnic on the sundeck during this part of the cruise.

Meals were great - breakfast was buffet or they had a few made to order options. Lunch was either casual in the lounge or seated in the dining room - both options were fine. Dinner was great - we tried different regional foods that were very good. Sodas and wine are unlimited during lunch and dinner.

Our cabin was comfortable and we loved the big French Balcony - the views were incredible! Wi-fi was spotty, but really, who wants to spend all your time on the internet when you have the Danube outside your window? Not me!!

This review can't even begin to explain what a wonderful time we had. Although the cities and the Danube itself was the main attraction and the reason we went on this cruise, the Prestige and the crew made it a truly wonderful vacation!
