The top of my bucket list included Austria, and we had heard that river cruising was the way to go. We were not disappointed. From the moment we were met at the airport to the time we were picked up to leave for home, we were the most ... 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

Viking has a wonderful Myanmar cruise/tour itinerary. You get a chance to see some of the major tourist sites but also visit small villages. Many people loved the villages most of all. The trip starts in Bangkok at the beautiful ... Read more

We'd been thinking about a river cruise for some time. We liked the idea of a small intimate ship, and that your room travels with you as you sail on the Danube to visit Budapest, Bratislava, VIenna, Melk, Passau. We booked the Danube ... Read more
