I really loved the cruise. I've never been on a sailing with more than 25 people before, so I'm not an expert. But since you asked, I'll give you my opinion. First the good (and great) things. The accommodations were much better than I ... Read more

After seeing advertising about river cruising for several years, we decided to try the Rhineland Discovery --Viking was our only choice based upon our research. "Wonderfully unexpected" is the best way to describe our total ... Read more

We have sailed with Viking previously (Christmas Markets of the Danube) 3 years ago, and in fact, on the same ship. The ship hasn't changed, but the crew, and attitudes, has. This trip we opted for deck one (cabin 110) and the cabins are ... Read more

Our first river cruise on the Viking Baldur as we like Europe and the idea of seeing many beautiful places/countries appealed to us. We also like that it's less crowded on the riverboats and you only unpack once. The ship was wonderful ... Read more
