Viking Prestige Cruise Review (Danube Waltz) August/September 2018 I have always wanted to go to Budapest and consider it one of the great cities besides Paris, London and major cities in Italy. Hence, we researched a river cruise that began or ended in Budapest and chose Viking. We did the Viking River Cruise with the cruise itself beginning on August 26 with 1 ½ days in Budapest and ...

This cruise was a dream come true. It was our first cruise and one we will always remember. My husband wanted to show me Eastern Europe where he worked many years. We decided to fly into Budapest two days early to recuperate from jet lag and to walk around the city on our own. When we walked onto the Embla we were warmly greeted with smiling faces by the entire crew, and it remained that way ...

Having never before being on a riverboat cruise, we didn't know what to expect. That ended the moment we entered the boat. From the very beginning, the service was outstanding. We were led to our room, which was very comfortable. The food was very good. Often they would build the menu around the location where we were docked. We had the option of ordering off the menu or the buffet. The ...

We had a great experience years ago on a Tauck Bridges tour and decided to do the Budapest-Amsterdam cruise, and were not disappointed! This newly refurbished ship was beautiful, with no detail forgotten. Our Ruby Deck, level 6 room was fabulous, with plenty of storage for a two week cruise. The one complaint- the closet for long clothes was not long enough. The bathroom was surprisingly large, ...

Overall trip was great. The arrival was handled with such ease and made it the start of a great trip. Ship was very well appointed and crew and staff did a great job of welcoming and very nicely setting boundary's. Ports of call were very interesting someday's we wished we had more free time in cities, but we have made a list and are looking at how we can go on our own make this ...

We had wanted to take a river cruise for a long time. After talking with friends about their experience on Viking, we decided to take one. We were not disappointed. From the meeting at the airport by Viking staff to the trip to the airport after our extended stay in Amsterdam, we were wonderfully taken care of by Viking staff. We really enjoyed the personal contact with the guides. Our on board ...

I chose this cruise because of my physical limitations. I could walk the easy tours but stay on the ship if I needed to. It was very easy to board and disembark. We loved Budapest, but did not like Amsterdam. We enjoyed the rest of the tours. The passengers all became ill with a chest cold which we acquired our last 4 days on the trip. Must remember to bring along cold medication next ...

Did Amsterdam to Budapest in 2016 and wanted to continue down the Danube to Bucharest. Viking gives wonderful views along the river and always has interesting excursions available. On board entertainment is excellent and special guests almost nightly. Since we spent so little time in our cabin on our last trip, we settled for the the lower deck. As it turns out, these rooms are a little larger ...
