Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze (though be sure to buy airfare or transfers directly through Viking because they make it absolutely painless). The ship was so comfortable, and the staff were top-notch and professional. It ... Read more

It was by far the most enjoyable and relaxing tour we have ever been on. Being on a ship with only 170 passengers was probably what made it special. The tour director, Gary was unbelievable. He was with us from when we embarked, he was ... Read more

We chose Amsterdam to Budapest because we love Amsterdam, but had not been to any of the other ports/cities on this tour. The luxury of the Viking experience was our favorite part. We are fit enough to go on any of the offered or included ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the length,15 days and the number of places we would get to visit, 4 countries. I would love to do it again. There was so much to enjoy that I'm sure we missed something! Good thing the majority of shore ... Read more

We are not cruise types although we are in every way the target audience for Viking. But a year and a half ago we got a brochure in the mail (we get a lot of travel brochures) and noticed that a booking in 2016 would be a two-fer. We ... Read more
