What a delightful vacation!

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Budapest

I can easily see why Viking is the #1 river cruise line. I can't imagine how any company could do better. The customer service is top notch! We started with two days in Budapest at the Hilton on Castle Hill in Buda. Our local tour guide, Oliver, was the best we have ever encountered on any vacation. He was so knowledgable of the area without it sounding like a history lesson. Our transfers from the airport went smoothly. We used a travel agent but for our next cruise we booked directly with Viking. There was a computer problem with the ship one day enroute to Vienna: the part was flown in and Viking more than made up for our inconvenience. Problems do arise but we feel so confident that Viking can handle any situation that we booked another trip within a month of our return.

The Program Director onboard the Njord was Kane Davies, an energetic and delightful young man, who handled every situation with aplomb. The whole crew was very skillful in their duties.

We loved More the veranda as the scenery on this cruise is so beautiful. You never feel the boat moving at all.

I can't recommend this cruise enough. It was relaxing, entertaining, and with great history and geography lessons to boot. We met so many wonderful people and ate so many delicious gourmet meals.The casual dining in the Aquavit lounge was also good. Less

Cabin review: Veranda B203

Wonderful room with great view. Two chairs on deck. We brought one into room when we were readingonce and sun was too hot. There is a chair and a stool already in the room. Shower is ample with a nice array of bath products.
