Ship Facts: Viking Odin Review (by Cruise Critic!)
River CRUISE, You Say?

We had the misfortune of choosing to go on a European river cruise during the year of the 500 Year Flood! The waters of the Danube were extremely high so, unfortunately, we were unable to actually cruise up the river. We stayed on the Viking Odin and the Viking Freya and were bussed to our shore excursions.

We were one day behind on boarding a boat so Viking Cruises arranged accommodations for all guests to stay in Budapest at a beautiful hotel. We had a great dinner with entertainment and in the morning we started the day with an exquisite breakfast.

We bus-toured around Budapest and then took a bus to the Viking Freya. The Freya is a beautiful boat with all amenities. The beds were comfortable, the entertainment was good, the food was great and so was the wine and beer. And the have to see it to believe it!!!

When our stay on the Freya had ended we were bussed to the Viking Odin. The Odin is the same as the Freya; however, the bathroom wasn't quite as cool. We again enjoyed great food and wine and wonderful entertainment.

The staff on both boats were congenial and helpful. Whenever we embarked after an excursion, we were greeted with a lovely shot of a delightful tasting drink.

We were dealt lemons on this vacation due to the flood, but we chose to make lemonade. We had a great time, we met wonderful people, and I am in awe how Viking staff worked diligently to make our vacation a memorable one.
