Viking River Cruise- Budapest to Amsterdam
"Just returned from a Viking river Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. This was first river cruise and we must say that we were glad that we booked with Viking. We have done all kinds of big ship cruising which we..."Read More

This was our first adventure on a river cruise and so we chose to sail with Viking whose name was associated with great service. Our expectations were far exceeded. Our normal vacation would include a beach resort so a river cruise was outside of our comfort zone. However, from the first minute to the last we were completely blown away with the whole experience. Discovering great cities like ...

This cruise was highly recommended by our trusted AMA travel agent. My husband and I were not disappointed! From the moment our plane landed in Amsterdam we were treated to Viking’s amazing hospitality and friendly professionalism. The ship’s design was beautiful and exceptionally clean. Stunning river views were maximized throughout. We booked one of the two Explorer Suites which provided ...

Just loved River Cruise. The sights on deck, the dining experience no preferred seating, the extremely helpful staff, the outings at each port, so well organized and finally the cleanliness everywhere on board’ and the very comfortable cabins. I do however suggest you do not take the outing at the baths in Budapest, they were not what we were expecting’ felt like just a big pool we have at ...

We started with a few extra days in Prague which is well worth visiting with so many sights, food and interesting shopping venues. We then headed to our embarkation point of Budapest where after dinner the enchantment of this cruise began with a cruise up and down the Danube River through the lit up city. It was a thrill to think that this was only the beginning. The Skadi was a wonderful ...

Heard from others that they truly enjoyed this trip, so decided to try it. Was not disappointed at all. Days flew by quickly because we were so busy in a nice casual way. Up early for breakfast and then off to a tour each day. Some days were full tour days with some walk around and some on our own to wander. We had time to play cards with old friends and enjoyed meeting new ones. Freedom ...

Why Viking ? At my age there are a lot of things to consider. Tours ,accommodations, food you name it. Thank God for the internet, did a lot of research, and with some recommendations I chose Viking. I,ll tell you, couldn't have made a better decision. Every thing was perfect. Top notch, including the price. Positives : Ship, crew, accommodations, food, tour director,piano ...

This was our second river cruise with Viking and we liked the ease of being on the boat for 14 days with minimal packing and unpacking and cruising all of the rivers. So relaxing. While all the cities, sites, tours were incredible we liked being on the river seeing the world at 11mph the best. This was the "Easy Button" of all vacations that we have taken - it is no surprise this is the most ...

TV advertisements looked wonderful so we decided to go. The lectures and historical tours taught us much. The guides were first rate. We had no negative experiences. The food was delicious, gourmet but not pretentious. The crew was very friendly and genuinely wished us to have a good time. One of the best things was sitting with other passengers at meals and during the delightful ...

We choose this cruise to return to some of the places my wife and I visited during my military career some 30+ years ago. Found the cruise in your brochure and my travel agent recommended it. Everything went smoothly from arriving in Budapest to leaving Amsterdam 2 weeks later. The ship is wonderful and everything is clean and functional. The dining experiences were exceptional. The staff ...

This Grand European river cruise has been on my wish list for a long time. We started in Budapest on Saturday, May 6, the Skadi is a lovely ship, our cabin was nice, it would have been nice to have two chairs instead of one chair and a stool, but otherwise was comfortable. The dining was wonderful, I needed special foods because of allergies and Ivan was wonderful assisting me. The ship's ...
