Ship Facts: Viking Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Pride Deck Plans
Viking Grand European River Cruise
My wife and I just got back from a wonderful holiday in Europe. We spent a few days in Amsterdam, and then boarded the Viking Pride for a 15 day Grand European Tour river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. I must say, it is a great way to see Europe. Unpack once, enjoy great food and company on a small, 150 passenger vessel.

We made stops at Kinderdijk, Netherlands, Cologne, Koblenz, Miltenberg, Wurzburg, Rothenberg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, all in Germany, then to Melk, Durnstein, and Vienna, Austria, then Bratislava, Slovakia, and finally to Budapest, Poland.

The food was not great but what I would call very good, and the accommodations, typical of any cruise weve been on, were small but clean. Every stop had a tour, some on a bus, then walking, some simply walking tours. We also had a number of optional excursions, one of them a fabulous trip to Rothenberg, a medieval city in Germany. Viking also had a number of enrichment programs on the ship, with talks on windmills, Germany, the European Union, and Vienna. There were also classical music and Hungarian folk performances, and a glass blowing demonstration on the ship.

Cruising the Rhine and Danube offered many incredible picture opportunities with simply breathtaking scenery.

We had a super time.highly recommended.
