We chose Viking for the ports and excursions they offer. We have heard many horror stories of cruises that became bus tours because of low river levels, high river levels and other natural hiccups. After checking the river levels on the ... Read more

My wife and I arrived in Budapest 4 days early to explore that beautiful city on our own, so, of course, our first contact with the Viking staff was when we boarded the Njord. From the first moment we were treated with great care and ... Read more

We recently went on a Viking river cruise from Budapest to Prague. We booked it through Viking and then had our travel agent take over our booking for a great pricing discount. We did not book the air with Viking or any of the extensions. ... Read more

We finally found the time to take a cruise in Eastern Europe. After some research we chose Viking River Cruises as their ships were mostly new, the pricing was good, the sales rep in California sent any and all information that I ... Read more

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, ... Read more

This was the first time we ever joined any sort of cruise and I was not convinced I would be as pleased in retrospect as indeed I am. All arrangements made by Viking were meticulous and clearly explained. Transitions between flights and ... Read more

Loved the trip! the Njord was clean, pretty, and comfortable. A great cabin with a balcony, a very comfortable bed, nifty shower- all made it hard to leave that space. Fortunately there were plenty of reasons to leave it, starting with ... Read more

Just returned from our first cruise of any type, a river cruise onboard the Viking Njord. We took the Danube Waltz which started in Passau and ended in Budapest. Having been to Europe only one other time back in the early 80's and having a ... Read more

My cruise was the Danube Waltz, December 1-8, 2012. We flew into Munich and Viking met us at baggage and quickly directed us to a waiting motor coach. After a beautiful drive, 1.5 hour, we arrived at our amazing ship in Passau Germany. ... Read more

This was our first European River Cruise. It was the Grand European Tour from Budapest to Amsterdam on the Viking Longship Njord. In our case, we had a very enoyable cruise. The crew was friendly and efficient, food was generally quite ... Read more

We had a wonderful time and a river cruise is an excellent way to see Hungary, Austria, Germany, etc. Not sure if it was because of the newness of the Njord (and some of the crew) but things were just off a bit. Communication being a ... Read more
