Review for AmaMagna to Europe - All

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. ...

A river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam was on our bucket list for many years. We started with a pre-cruise extension to Prague, which was a great walking city. The river cruise ship was comfortable and filled with friendly travelers. The cabin was small but well-designed and there was no need to stay in the cabin except when sleeping. Being able to sit outside and watch as small towns passed by ...

I went on this cruise with my 20 year old daughter. After several ocean cruises, this was my first experience on a river cruise. It was an amazing trip. The staff and crew were always friendly and accommodating. The ship, cabin, and food were all awesome. The provided shore excursions and tour guides were all very interesting. Viking took great care of us throughout the entire ...

We had no previous experiences on a Cruise or River Boat Cruises. This was our anniversary. We planned a great deal before venturing out. The Cruise line surprised us by noting that our cabin was upgraded to a suite. We enjoyed the accommodations, were excellent. Ship was very well kept and clean with a very friendly staff. Our house keeper was always available to us and look to please ...

My husband and I did not arrive early enough to explore Budapest. I had been there twice before and he didn't get off work early. The airport pickup, embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth and on time. I didn't realize the ship departed on the 13th while we toured and had arranged to meet a friend who lives in town after lunch but had to cancel that. Now to be clear, we've sailed on 15 ...

Bucharest to Amsterdam We had never taken a river cruise and when we saw this itinerary, it covered so much of Europe we knew this was the trip for us. We did a pre-trip to Bucharest and Transylvania and would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary—one of our favorite stops! We had a French balcony which was sufficient, and well serviced, as we were in the room only to sleep—we ...

Why did I choose Viking? After watching PBS for years, I was captivated by the Viking commercials and told my wife that one day we would take a river cruise. The day came in Oct 2019. We( couple no kids) were originally scheduled to embark on the Skadi, however, due to lower river water level, we set sail on the Bragi. Our group was called Skadi on the Braggi by our cruise director. Viking ...

We loved every moment of our time with Viking. With our early arrival, we explored Budapest and found it a charming city with wonderful architecture. Our hotel was amazing. It was like a palace with its grand staircase and stained glass ceiling in the breakfast room. Absolutely beautiful. While on board, we enjoyed the ship and it's activities. Our activities director was amazing. She ...

We chose this particular cruise because it enabled us to see so many interesting and varied places. It certainly didn’t disappoint! The itinerary was amazing and varied and we were able to understand and appreciate it fully with the assistance of on board talks and the most knowledgeable and articulate guides. Even though I was slightly disabled following a knee operation, transport and ‘gentler’ ...

Extension in Prague was great, wonderful city but the Marriott they booked us at was the worst Marriott we ever stayed at. First there was construction noise all day, when we complained to the front desk the woman said nothing she could do. Our view was of a lower roof top...oh and the bar did not know how to make a Shirley Temple or apparently anything except a Mai Tai, the drink of the day ...
