Much more than we had anticipated or even hoped for!
"We were interested in the scheduled ports of call and the daily tours included in the package. We had other friends who had taken a Viking Cruise and they all raved about the value of their trip. If we had it..."Read More

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

It was our first cruise and it was wonderful. The ship amenities, the crew and the hospitality people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They even helped me find flowers ashore for my wife for Mothers' Day. The only fly in the ointment was that there were two elderly spinster sisters in our adjoining cabin, and both had what the other passengers eventually called "kennel cough", a ...

Having experienced ocean cruising in North America, my wife and I wanted a unique cruise experience and chose a European river cruise. After much research, Viking appeared to be the best option for us as we wanted a luxury cruise experience spanning our stateroom, meals, excursions, and customer service. In short, Viking met and in some areas even exceeded our expectations. Since we had ...

We've always talked about doing something like this. We've been on other non Viking cruises, We're now spoiled. I don't want to be with 4,500 of my closest friends. The river cruise was a wake up call, starting with an impeccable clean ship, the entire crew spoke English and attentive to your every need. Just 170 passengers on board so after two weeks together we have many new lasting friends, you ...

My wife (and I was included!!) received this cruise as a retirement gift after serving her employer for 22 years. Neither of us had ever been to Europe, nor had we been on any cruise of any kind. The boss of her company personally selected this cruise, because he and his wife had a wonderful experience on a similar Viking European cruise. So, he selected the date, point of embarkation, the ...

Chose this cruise because it went through parts of central western Europe we had not visited. Viking has one of the highest ratings and concentrates on giving the passengers wonderful information on each port before arriving. The ship was beautiful and kept exceptionally clean and immaculate. We particularly enjoyed our departure city of Budapest and all the tours offered by Viking, as well as ...
