Just returned from the holiday. Actual port of embarkation was Giurgiu, near Bucharest, Romania but this was not an option on the Cruise Critic drop down menu, Budapest was where we disembarked. This was our fifth river cruise and the first with Emerald. This cruise was excellent. Emerald looked after us extremely well and the service, be it from the cabin stewards, reception, bar service, ...

Viking river cruise was perfect and we are already missing it. Without small children, the cabins were quiet and we could sleep well in the night. Since we purchase two vouchers, we are definitely going to take a Rhine River cruise next year. The ship was clean and its excellent service met all our needs. The crews were proper and friendly except one waiter was a little overenthusiastic for ...

This was my 3rd Viking cruise and my wife's 6th. Overall, it was fabulous. The cruise director, Edina, was so very helpful and her tour of Budapest at night was a highlight. Maître d Martina was a joy - the food on this cruise was superb - a cut above the already superior Viking cuisine. The destinations were also wonderful as were the guides in each destination - Achim in Vienna, Ester in ...

I appreciated the stunning beauty, historical interest and commendable organization encompassed in the Paris to Prague travel experience. Time of year was lovely, too.

I chose the Paris to Prague trip in 2022 because in spring 2019 I had a wonderful time on a Viking river cruise from Budapest to Bucharest. I wanted to again have such an edifying experience -- the stuff of an expanded awareness and good memories. Beautiful scenery, rich history, relaxing cruise time, and superbly accommodating Viking staff and regional guides were all part of a memorable and ...

Cruise Director reviewed the disembarking process for Friday. He explained that everyone would get a notice of what time to leave the ship on Friday morning and would be given a box breakfast for the road and the assistance of a Viking agent through check-in at the airport. At the bus parking area of terminal 2 the driver unloaded all 5 pieces of our luggage in the parking lot and got back ...

I had cruised on Viking to Budapest and wanted to return there and see close-up what I had only seen on the bus in Pest. I chose this cruise because I was interested in seeing the "rest" of the Danube and Transylvania. The countries of Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania were impacted differently than other European countries by history and communism. The culture, the food and the landscape were ...

Most relaxing cruise I have ever been on. So much better than the mega ocean ships.

We are three couples who have cruised over the years but mostly Caribbean cruises. We decided to try a river cruise this time and voted to try Viking on the Danube. What a joy. Much smaller ship, less commotion onboard for meals, friendlier passengers, less drinking, less noise, etc. The better part is the docking in town of the cities we visited. Leave the ship and walk through town ...

This was our first experience on a river boat cruise and Viking was rated so highly in all the reviews we read. We travelled at the end of May and the the weather was a very comfortable 50's at night to 70's during the day. Plenty of sunshine, minimal rain from Budapest to Nuremberg. The whole experience was excellent in every way from stepping onto a beautiful ship that felt light and bright, to ...

We previously cruised the Rhône River on Viking and had a great time. We got a great deal for this cruise which we couldn’t refuse. The Viking staff are excellent, and they take care of you from the airport all the way to the airport at the end. The cruise is relaxing. We felt totally pampered with great food and wine. I love learning the history and stories of the places we visit. European ...

We wanted a non kids 2 week cruise in Europe and the Budapest to Amsterdam Viking trip filled the bill.Viking crew were always willing to do whatever you wanted. Enjoyed the more active excursions of hiking and bike riding along the river. Casual atmosphere , no fancy dressing or cabarets or casinos, perfect for us. We bought some wine on an excursion and the Viking bartender gave us a couple ...
