Ship Facts: Viking Legend Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Legend Deck Plans
The Viking Danube River cruise was beyond my expectations. We were very busy, and I loved touring different cities each day. Each one was interesting whether it was Passau, Germany, Salzburg, Melk, Durnstein, or Vienna, Austria, Bratislava, Slovakia, or best of all, Budapest, Hungary. We were always given some free time.

The Viking Legend staff provided excellent service. The food was delicious and served very elegantly. I also enjoyed the lectures on the European Union and Mozart. Also, one afternoon, we had tea and strudel while they demonstrated making apple strudel. There were so many extra delightful surprises. For example, after we returned from an all-day trip to Salzburg, we were greated with cold drinks. When we returned from our Budapest tour, we were greated with snacks. They always made sure we had plenty of water, both in our room and before we left on a tour. When we returned from a classical concert in Vienna, they served Hungarian goulash at 10:30 PM. The rooms were not large, but we spent very little time in the room. The ship was quiet and smooth. It could not have been more enjoyable.

The room was not very large, but the only time we spent in the room was to sleep. We had a French balcony on the top level. It was very quiet. I don't think you would want a room near the back of the boat though. The libary was at the back of the boat, and it was quite noisy. We were given large bottles of water each day. They showed Sound of Music on the TV the night that we went to Salzburg, which we enjoyed because we had just seen places where it had been filmed. The service was good. Each evening when we returned from dinner, we were given the daily briefing for the following day. We had our own listening devices which we charged each night in the room.
