VIKING RIVER CRUISES - BEWARE!
"If you are considering a river cruise with Viking, you should be aware of certain things the cruise line does not tell you. 1. There is no compensation if the ship breaks down: We were unfortunate to take a..."Read More

We started with a two-day pre-cruise package in Nuremberg. It really set the stage for the whole trip because Nuremberg was central in the history of the Holy Roman Empire. Our tour guide on for the pre-cruise package was a history major specializing in Medieval Nuremberg and she really put the everything in context. The crew of the Idun did everything they could to make our trip special. They ...

My wife and I had been on many cruises, but never on a River Cruise and had never been to Europe. We're limited to vacation times during the year due to her teaching schedule and Xmas week has been customarily our time to to go to Florida, the western part of the U.S., and to the Caribbean and Mexico.. So to go to Europe during the winter, was not what I was expecting when my wife booked our ...

This was our first river cruise, and we had heard good things about Viking so our expectations were high. Viking exceeded our expectations across the board. The Idun was immaculate, and we always wondered how our room (a Veranda) could be cleaned, or the bed turned down, when we left the room for a few minutes. The crew was remarkable, from the room cleaners to the deck hands to the wait staff, ...

I am an early 60's woman who traveled with two sisters on Romantic Danube cruise. This was our first time on a river cruise though we have all cruised on ocean cruises. One sister traveled on her own to Prague, Czech Republic prior to our cruise. We all met up in Budapest on Friday night. We spent Saturday exploring Budapest which is a lovely city. We stayed at Le Meridien hotel. We did not ...

Just back from the "Romantic Danube" Viking river cruise on the Viking Idun in Early September 2014. We left from Budapest and cruised up to Nuremburg, and added the extension in Prague. Viking gets my highest rating. Here's a few thoughts. The Program Director Barry and the chef Ronald are both out of central casting. Ronald was frequently invited over to our table so we could complement him and ...

We were on board the Idun for 7 days. We travelled from Budapest to Nuremburg with an extra 3 day extension in Prague. Everything was so well organized. Right from the moment we stepped off the plane to our departure from Prague. There was always a representative to help you, answer questions and point you in the right direction. The ship itself was well set up. Our room was on the 3rd floor and ...

My husband and I did the Danube "Christmas Markets" cruise starting December 21 in Budapest ending in Nuremberg Dec. 28. This is our second cruise with Viking. (Our first was last October with their China Yangteze cruise of about 15 days. Loved it!) The Viking Idun is only a year old and has capacity of 190 guests. There were 180 on this trip, which is a good turnout given it is over Christmas. ...

Great ports of call, however, not enough planned excursions or time in ports. The ship has to go thru 25 locks, so there is a lot of time sailing and just looking at the sights from the deck. The food was good, not great and the wine was poor, with no choice only white or red. There were only two nights of entertainment, first and last (the best) and so there was a lot of down time in the ship ...

Was assured in writing by Viking prior to the cruise that the Idun did not have water problems. I know that at least 2 rooms on the main deck had major flooding (one had soaked carpets on arrival) and many rooms with showers that backed up. 2 balconies were unusable due to standing water. Also was told by 2 different parties that the carpet outside the lounge was soaked at night (they went to ...

Accommodation: Cabin was well equipped but there was little space to move around. Restaurant: was very cramped for space and poor acoustics made conversation almost impossible.There was barely sufficient space for 188 passengers.There was a mad rush to to the restaurant after breifings for next day, to get seat at a table with someone you knew, with a server who was good, big scramble for ...
