So much for 'Experience the world in comfort, fabulous food, fabulous hotel stay and a journey that is simply incredible.' A very disappointing and poor value trip as the river was closed. Staff did not inform us we would not be able ... Read more

We sailed on the Njord this year--Romantic Danube. Our first Viking cruise was on Alsvin in 2015, the Tulips/Windmill cruise. We loved it so much that we returned this year with another couple. We'd like to make this an annual trip. ... Read more

We had previously done the Romantic Danube and the Rhine separately, but my brother and wife wanted to do a cruise so we recommended this one. The part through southern Germany was new to us but we learned new things even on the other ... Read more

As beginners with Viking River cruises, we thought the Danube experience would give us the opportunity to see several European countries and cities, especially Vienna and Budapest in a safe and convenient way. We thought that in our ... Read more

Past favorable cruise. Would go again. Only disappointment was the blocking of the river by a barge that hit a bridge near Dresden resulting in our ports to be reduced and the most scenic portion of the cruise eliminated. Viking did do ... Read more

We encountered the problem with low water level. The first day we arrived supposed to be at the center of Budapest. Due to low water, the ship was parked an hour drive a away in the middle of no where. So we wasted our fist day. The ... Read more

I was interested in a holiday markets cruise, and as I booked a little later in the year, this was one of the options still available. I definitely didn't feel like I had settled though as the cruise was amazing! The experience on board ... Read more

We joined the Viking group in Bangkok and then visited Yangon and Inle Lake before boarding the ship in Mandalay. We were a group of 8 on this 60 passenger ship with a crew of almost 30. Dominic, the hotel manager, took care of all our ... Read more

Viking offers the most in depth cruise I have ever been a part of. From the staff, the ship, the local tour guides and the delicious food I could not have asked for more. They really do treat you like royalty on these cruises and I would ... Read more

We travelled as a couple and arrived the day before the cruise to explore Budapest a little more before embarkation. The instructions to get to the port were perfect and we had no issues arriving or boarding the ship. The entire cruise ... Read more

My sister and I signed up for this cruise because of the Christma markets and were lucky enough to book one of the Explorer Suites. The accommodations were outstanding, our cabin steward (Ria) was terrific. The excursions were good, but ... Read more

As usual with Viking, we were met at the airport and had no worries about logistics from that point onward. The trip was very interesting and educational. We also took both the pre and post cruise extensions. These were also extremely well ... Read more

My boyfriend and I learned more about Viking River Cruises from PBS (while watching Masterpiece, of course!) and were immediately interested in the the fact that we could go to Europe and unpack once and still see multiple cities. Being ... Read more

Due to the severe drought in Europe, we had to stay in a hotel in Budapest the first night, then travel to meet our ship, then change ships part way through. However, Viking cannot be blamed for that, and they certainly did all they could ... Read more

If you would like a poor river, bus and walking tour, book with Viking Cruise Line, I think. You will also get poor attitude and food at times. We were on 4 different ships which meant packing and unpacking every time with bus rides ... Read more
