Having done many ocean cruises this was our first river cruise,so had no idea what to expect. The ship was great, crew brilliant, food fantastic quality and great fellow guests, it was perfect. The included trips were informative with knowledgeable guides. The customer service was the best I have experienced from the lovely Joana in housekeeping, Tommy in the bar and Carla and Cruz in the ...

Viking river cruise - Danube Waltz was excellent in every respect. We have travelled on other lines and Viking is well above the rest in terms of service, food, staterooms and even booking experience. The included shore excursions are great, well organized and very nicely done We were on the Viking prestige last April - nice ship that visited Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Linz, Melk and ...

Viking Prestige Cruise Review (Danube Waltz) August/September 2018 I have always wanted to go to Budapest and consider it one of the great cities besides Paris, London and major cities in Italy. Hence, we researched a river cruise that began or ended in Budapest and chose Viking. We did the Viking River Cruise with the cruise itself beginning on August 26 with 1 ½ days in Budapest and ...

Having taken two previous river cruises with a different line, we were under the impression that Viking were the top line to sail with so booked a week on the Budapest to Passau Danube Waltz. We travelled with friends and opted for two nights in Budapest at the Hilton on the Buda side. The hotel and location were perfect and we enjoyed our time in Budapest very much. However, when it came time to ...

Having never before being on a riverboat cruise, we didn't know what to expect. That ended the moment we entered the boat. From the very beginning, the service was outstanding. We were led to our room, which was very comfortable. The food was very good. Often they would build the menu around the location where we were docked. We had the option of ordering off the menu or the buffet. The ...

I have been on two other Viking river cruises over the last nine months so I had a pretty good understanding of what to expect. The service by the crew was excellent - it appears to be their trademark - all are well trained in excellent customer relations. The boat was a bit dated but was maintained well with a few exceptions. Meals were good - not outstanding but still very good for the most ...

We have a core group of friends that travel together. A friend was looking for somewhere for us to go and came across this trip. An e-mail was sent out to everyone asking who was interested. There was an overwhelming yes response. We had a group of 20 that went on the cruise. The first day was spent touring Budapest. I don't know what I expected to see but the two parts of the metropolis were ...

We chose this itinerary for the cities visited and we wanted to travel in September. This was a perfect trip - the crew, the weather, all the cities we visited (Danielle was the best cruise director!) the food, the staff; there was nothing to fault and the cruise exceeded our expectations! Leaving Budapest was magical with the music, lights, wine - a perfect evening and so romantic. This is one of ...

This was our first river cruise, selected for the itinerary, length, and stops. We loved Budapest and all the cities on the cruise itinerary. We were blessed by superb weather. The meals served aboard ship were generally superb, and the portions were generous. With beer and wine available at both lunch and dinner, there was no need for purchasing any additional drink packages. The crew was very ...
