My husband and I had a marvellous time, in every way. The crew and all other staff were great, as was the entertainment. We met lots of great people, particularly two groups of Canadians who were great to be with.The food and excursions were superb - cannot be faulted. The bedroom was all we had expected, clean and very comfortable, with lots of coat-hangers, which was a very pleasant surprise, not the norm! ( I had taken a few, just in case!) Toiletries were good and stocked up everyday and the room was attended to twice daily.. As we had booked a balcony suite, that is what we expected, not two chairs and a table inside the cabin. This would be our only complaint of the ship but it didn't spoil an otherwise truly memorable holiday. We have travelled with other cruise companies but this is definitely the best so far. Read Less

Have never visited this part of Europe before, so had no idea what to expect. The cruise covered 5 countries, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary. The ship was excellent as with all of the Viking cruises I have traveled on. Dining room food was very well done and the service was great. The excursions and ports were good choices and I learned a lot on this cruise about an area I had no idea was like. The in-home experience in Croatia was great and our host provided a wealth of information we probably never would have gotten anywhere else. The trip ending in Budapest was the right way to go as it was like a culmination of returning to Europe with a grand city for touring and dining. I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone who has never traveled in this region. The Danube is a really interesting river. Read Less

We love Viking and this trip was no exception. We were previously on the Jarl for the Romantic Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest with extensions in Prague and Budapest. This trip was different in that it was more educational and less site seeing. The Passage to Eastern Europe on the Atla and the tours did site seeing, but we were also provided a more in depth view into how Communism, the Serbian-Croatian War (& Yugoslavia), affected Eastern Europe and how it still affects it today. Some of it is sobering, but I learned a lot! Countryside is beautiful! The only downside was that some of the ports were not on cities so you could not simply walk off the ship and browse around town. Some excursions were an hour+ away. The ship, as on our previous cruise, was nice and clean. The staff go out of their way to know you by name and your preferences for everything from how you like your room to what you prefer to drink with a meal. And, as for meals! Well, if you walk away hungry it is your fault. The staff always makes sure to take care of you. If you order something and want something different they are always accommodating. This is no different with the rest of the staff - everyone will do their best to accommodate you if you just ask. We are in our 40s and were concerned the first cruise that we would be outcasts. We should not have worried a bit! We have managed to make friends of all ages (40 & up, that is) onboard. We are already booked for another Viking trip, but next time it will be on one of their cruise ships. i can't wait! Read Less

Time of year was right for us and we had never been to that part of Europe. Everything was "first class!" Viking really know how to get it done from start to finish. From greeting us at the Bucharest airport to seeing us off in Budapest the staff of Viking did everything right. If you want a fun adventure while being pampered this is the way to go. The service was great, the food was very good, the tours were spot on, the guides who traveled each day with us very knowledgeable which made the trip worth every penny. If you have never done a Viking River Cruise you must give it a try. We were "first timers" for any type of cruise and this was the best Only 180 travelers on a very spacious vessel. Of the 180, 155 had been on other river cruises with Viking and all of the ones we meet said they have never had a bad trip while using Viking. Read Less

Chosen for the size and the number of passengers it holds. We liked that it wasn't overly crowded.. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions. Thought the selection of the food was very good and also tasted great. We purchased the silver package which we enjoyed very much with our fellow travelers that were with us. The layout of the ship was very nice with both seating inside and outside. Sitting in the front of the ship in the outdoor area was an enjoyable way to view the scenery and relax. Spent a lot of time in the lounge area before and after dinner having drinks and talking about the days adventures and what we would be doing the next day. Cabin size was large enough where we didn't seem too crowded. Size didn't matter anyway as not much time spent there. The excursions which were included in the price were interesting and the guides for the most part were informative about the area we were visiting. All of the buses we used were clean and comfortable with good drivers. All in all we had a great time and are looking forward to booking our next adventure with Viking Cruise Line. Read Less
