Sol's Danube River cruise

Some friends asked if we would join them on this cruise and we had been wanting to try one. The cruise was a lot more relaxed than being on a large ship. It was nice being just steps away from the lounge and ...

Our first but absolutely not our last Viking Cruise!

This was my wife and my first river cruise, as it was for my in-laws and their two friends who traveled along with us. It will definitely not be our last cruise with Viking! My wife and I are both in our early to ...

Relaxing, cozy vacation along the brown (not blue) Danube

Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze (though be sure to buy airfare or transfers directly through Viking because they make it absolutely painless). The ship was so comfortable, and the staff were top-notch ...

Excellent cruise on the Danube aboard Viking Odin

My wife has been on an ocean cruise before and been after me to try cruising. I was never very interested in spending time at sea in a floating hotel; I'd much rather be exploring the ports. So when I came across ...

River CRUISE, You Say?

We had the misfortune of choosing to go on a European river cruise during the year of the 500 Year Flood! The waters of the Danube were extremely high so, unfortunately, we were unable to actually cruise up the ...

Cruise morphed into a bus tour.

Unprecedented flooding disrupted our Danube cruise on the Viking Odin and turned it into a bus tour. The flooding was an "Act of God" and affected all river traffic. Eventually, the German authorities closed the ...

Bucket List Long; Actuary Chart Short

On this third cruise with Viking, the Four Sisters (ages 77-86) spent 8 days on the Danube River from Budapest to Nuremberg. This was perhaps a less strenuous cruise than those we have taken on the Rhine and Elbe ...
