2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We just got off an amazing cruise on the Danube departing from Budapest on August 30 to Vilshofen, Germany, September 6. There were 32 passengers with 34 staff. The cruise disembarking September 6 only had 37 passengers. And, the two cruises prior to ours had 30-something and 74 passengers respectively. Here are some observations: 1. Hungry required a PCR test to enter by air. No one asked to ...

Review for Viking Ullur to Europe - All

When my wife's mother died 5 days before our river cruise, Viking told me the “Risk Free Guarantee” they gave me at booking no longer applied after they canceled our June trip—now we would simply lose all we paid. Rather than lose everything, I decided to go without my wife. Then Viking called the night before I left to say I owed $6,971 more for a single supplement—despite having already ...

I choose this cruise as I knew some fellow passengers. First time river cruising. We stayed 2 days in Budapest (wonderful!), then 7 days cruising then short bus ride to Prague for the post cruise. We enjoyed it very much. Nice room, Great service. Good food. I really liked the small ship. Excursions were included & had a choice of activities to choose from at each port. Cruise ...

We have sailed with Viking previously, 2 ocean. We always wanted to do a river cruise. We were the 1st back for this particular itinerary. To say it was outstanding is an understatement. As always, service couldn't have been better, all precautions for health were taken, & then some.The ship has a sun deck equipped with tables and both sit up and lounge chairs. It also had a shuffleboard court and ...

We toured with a travel company and AmaWaterways was the company they used for cruising the Danube. We were the first Americans in 2021 to cruise on the AmaMagna. It is a beautiful ship with wonderful cabins. We had a balcony off of our room which was wonderful for relaxing and viewing the sites as we cruised. The food was exceptional. I have a gluten intolerance and they went above and ...

Have heard about crystal and decided to try it out. Previously we had done a Viking river cruise was NOT excited about that and were reluctant to do another river cruise but thought we would. we boarded the ship in Budapest. We spent time there before cruising on up the Danube. I won't bore you with the daily stuff but suffice it to say we enjoyed all of the excursions and side trips they ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise on the river Danube as we wanted a relaxing break but especially wanted to see the Christmas Markets in Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna and we weren’t disappointed, (Vienna especially is a must). Everything went smoothly from the booking to landing back in Bristol airport. The Robert Burns is definitely a 5 star ship and was decorated beautifully throughout for the festive ...

We've been on a Scenic river cruise before, but this one exceeded the last. Of course, with it being a Christmas Markets river cruise - that helped, but the staff on board just seemed to go the extra mile. Richard, the Tour Director was just incredible. He made everything seem like such an adventure - his descriptions of each stop and the optional excursions were just outstanding. He ...

Lovely cruise. Kept relatively busy. Not a lot of down time. Staff was outstanding. Ate at all four dining rooms. Food was excellent. Loved the coffees/hot chocolate machine in main lounge. Even had heated shelving for mugs! Lounge seating area quite comfortable. Being there are 3 levels on board the boat, there was only one public restroom and that was on bottom deck. If you weren’t close to your ...

The AmaMagna is a ship unlike any others due to its size. I took this cruise mainly because I wanted to try this ship. I was very impressed. The experience was far superior to my ride on a Tauck ship on a similar itinerary. The space available on this ship makes for a superior experience. You never feel cramped. The dining room is large enough to allow reasonable spacing between tables. ...
