Best value for the length of trip. Food was amazing. Staff was incredible. Coming took care of us from the moment we arrived in Budapest to the airport in Amsterdam. We then linked another Viking cruise, Paris to Normandy, and the transfer was seamless. Viking did an incredible job. This was our first river cruise, so we wanted to make the best of our travel time. Linking the two ...

My sister-in-law has been on this cruise three times and recommended it very highly. It lived up to our expectations, and more. The service, tour guides, on board staff, stateroom and food were all exceptional. Housekeeping staff were outstanding. The room was tidied and the bed was made more than once a day (a schedule allowed time for a nap almost every day.) The excursions were interesting ...

Started in Prague, not on the river, and Budapest. The history, the people, the land, the architecture (Cathedrals, Churches, towns/villages, castles, bridges, etc.) were marvelous! Meals on the boat were spectacular both in variety and presentation beginning with the local cuisine. With the many shore excursions you had the opportunity to try the best of food the various ports had to offer. ...

A bucket list trip that may be the only time we do this ... wanted to ‘see it all’! We joined the ship in Amsterdam. We were met at the airport by Viking reps and quickly taken to the Viking Baldur at the port. Great assistance with luggage at the airport - getting luggage onto the ship was a bit sketchy - minimal assistance. Departed on time. The Included shore excursions throughout were ...

Marek Snelly our cruise director assured this trip was memorable wonderful river scenery, great cities. Any issues due to weather were handled professionally and expediently. As example the river was too low to make the full trip but Viking maintains ships making the Itenary in both directions so we simply packed our bags and Viking moved them to the same room on essentially an identical ship. ...

We chose this cruise because it travelled to countries we thought we'd enjoy viewing along the Danube/ Main/ Rhine Rivers, and we were not disappointed to say the least. We thoroughly enjoyed the city tours and found them quite worthwhile. All the extra excursions were excellent, except for one of the castle tours which we felt was not as good. As well, when not on an extra excursion, it was ...

All services on the Baldur were clearly outstanding and beyond first class in my opinion. Shore excursions were extremely well organized and always on time. Barry, the cruise director was outstanding. Transfers from the airport to the ship and from the ship back to the airport were flawlessly executed. The servers on the ship deserve special commendation and I only wish I could remember their ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Everything about the Grand European was superior, most especially the level of service provided by the crew. We had wonderful meals, fascinating ports of call and made wonderful friendships. We began the trip with a pre-cruise visit for three days to Prague, a beautiful, classic central European city in the Czech Republic. From there we were taken by bus to Budapest to begin our river cruise. ...

The people on this boat were so nice. Both staff and fellow travelers. We felt at home! Budapest was our favorite place. We liked seeing the Hungarian Horsemen. And we enjoyed the optional tour A Taste of Budapest. The Parliament building is truly lovely. And we had some real goulash soup in a local restaurant. The weather was cold and rainy much of the time but we had picture perfect ...

The cruise was as good as their ads show. Wow!! We had a great time. Ship was beautiful. Food was great. Service was impeccable. Alexandru & Noel, in the dining room were too much fun. Excellent beer selection. Tours were well organized. Cabin (French balcony) was small but very efficient. Nothing to do for children. No activities. TV has a movie channel, but not much for kids. There were ...
