We have sailed many ocean cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We liked the idea of being able to see multiple cities in Central Europe while unpacking only once. Overall, the cruise was OK - not sure it is a great value for the ... Read more

I just returned from a wonderful cruise aboard the Viking Magni. I couldn't be happier with my decision to cruise with Viking on this ship/itinerary. The ship itself is fairly new (2013) and is well maintained. Since I was traveling alone ... Read more

To start from the very beginning, after a short chat with an advisor from Viking, we decided to book at our local travel agent, Baldwins, a big up to them for their efficiency and advice. Viking's website, myvikingjourney.com was excellent ... Read more

Viking was offering a fantastic deal for this cruise; two for one fares plus cancel up to the day before departure with a full refund (Viking no longer offers the full refund; believe it was due to events in Europe/France at the time). ... Read more

We wanted a river cruise because my wife was reluctant to go on an ocean cruise. We also wanted to visit Eastern Europe and thought that a Viking River Cruise would be both a good way to try a water travel experience as well as structured ... Read more
