Enjoyed every aspect of our Rhine cruise last year and was keen to experience The Danube. I wouldn’t have chosen another company as all aspects of our previous cruising experience were excellent. We wee not disappointed this year! The customer care Viking offers is second to none. Everything ran smoothly from the time we booked until the time our cruise ended. All the crew are pleasant and ...

The food and cleaning departments were super but the cruise directors were just horrible. 10 people were left behind in Vienna when a tour guide decided to leave 15 minutes early, guide and cruise directors didnt care at all. Entertainment on the ship was hideous music was a man playing a key board of songs from the 1960s and playing them badly. There were never enough seats in the lounge for ...

We loved the historical sites experienced in the wonderful free and optional tours of the itinerary selected by the designers of the cruise. Our selection of the excursions available provided excellent activities for us commensurate with our age (elderly) and physical capabilities. The size of the optional groups (and even of the entire group aboard ship) was small and not uncomfortably ...

We have had two ocean cruises on the small motor sailer Winds tar. Outstanding. We expected similar experience from the heavily advertised Viking Danube cruise. This was another low water summer, but we were lucky. We did not have to change ships. We were unlucky in that we were docked three ships abreast turning our stateroom into a dark cave most of the time. I gather this is often the case. Our ...

Viking turned our romantic cruise into a bus tour

Don’t book book Viking river cruises. We bought the 7-day Danube Waltz from Aug 5 – 12, 2018, and spent one night cruising. Viking gave us a bus tour with hotel stays. Their boat broke down – couldn’t flush the toilets a lot of the time – and their compensation is 25 percent of our paid cruise fare, not including the airfare we had to pay to get there. We had low water at the start in Budpest ...

We booked this cruise for it's Itinerary. Especially enjoyed the cities visited and the scenic countryside. The Viking staff was professional, accommodating, efficient, but not intrusive. The cruise director, as well as, all the staff, kept us informed of all procedures and processes. We liked the basic all in one pricing structure. The boat was very clean and easy to navigate. An older boat, the ...

This was one river cruise that I could go on by myself since I had nobody to travel with this time. The vessel was the oldest but very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was a little small but worked out OK for my needs. Other than sleep and shower I was not in my cabin much. The cleaning staff did a very nice job and were very pleasant to talk with. the dining was excellent and ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the cities and countries included in the tour. The entire experience was delightful, especially the food, staff, and excursions. We met some amazing people and learned so much from the excursions led by educated and informed guides. The dining experience was both visually and gastronomically pleasing, and we grew fond of the cheerful and ...

We chose the Danube Waltz Cruise because it sailed through a part of Europe we had never seen. Also, because of the casual dress code and and lesser number of passengers on a river boat.We enjoyed the superb accommodation and excellent service provided by Viking. Our stateroom on the main deck was comfortable and the house keeping was meticulous. We had the daily schedule placed on our bed every ...
