We just got back from the Romantic Danube Cruise that turned into a partial bus tour. We were supposed to sail on the Var, but instead we went on the Tor, Wilhelm and another ship I can't remember. That's right...three different ships, two days of four hour bus trips, and sailed through the Wachau Valley at night. The first two days went fine from Nuremberg to Regensberg. After that, it was ...

Age 60s

The Danube water level was low the week we went (October, 2018) . Therefore, the "cruise" was not what was promised. It was a "bus" trip. We spent more time on a bus than cruising on the Danube. We boarded 3 different ships. Viking knew of the low river level issues for days before our cruise, yet did not cancel the cruise, nor offer a postponement. That is unpardonable. Just as we are ...

Everything was planned and executed beautifully! The staff made every aspect enjoyable. Even normal life mishaps were cared for with a professional touch without being “stuffy”. Loved it! The side trips were easy going yet we got to see and do a great deal. Realky, there was more planned on board then we coukd possibly do! (Just coukdn’t stay up for the later entertainment after an ...

Poor dispensing of information

Re: Danube - Nuremberg to Budapest Aug 24-31, 2018 I understand that water levels are beyond Viking's control. But the manner is which information is dispensed is, to put it mildly, not customer friendly. Only the information that Viking chooses to dispense, is dispensed, and only when Viking chooses to dispense it. Crew is tight lipped. Requests for information to Viking corporate go ...

Our first river cruise and it was certainly our LAST with Viking. Our trip started off on the wrong foot with awful flight arrangements by Viking on Air Canada. Our original flight was cancelled and it took over 3 hours and 2 re-bookings to make new flight arrangements (first rebooking did not have enough time catching a connecting flight). Next, Viking staff was not at the airport to transfer ...

Firstly I would like to say this is one of the best holidays we have been on. The staff, ship and destinations were exactly as described and totally met our expectations. The down side was that a few days before we left we received an email to say that part way through our sail we may have to disembark due to low water of the Danube. We weren’t over the moon about the prospect of changing ...

I had extensively researched river cruises to determine if there would be one right for my husband and me. We are both 54 and, quite honestly, fairly active people. Although I was aware the average age was much higher, the draw for me was the ability to see several countries without the hassle of packing and unpacking in different cities. I wanted something easy that didn’t require much thought. ...

We heard wonderful things about Viking River Cruises and set reservations a year in advance. This was our 22nd Anniversary and 'Romantic Danube' was definitely appropriate! Everything we heard about Viking was true and even BETTER!. We have been fortunate to travel extensively in our lives and our expectations were SURPASSED in every category. It started when we received our personalized ...

My sister and I researched cruises and we decided on the Danube cruise from Budapest to Nuremberg. Best decision we ever made - the ship was clean, food was great, staff was top notch. The land tours were great and all tour guides were well informed and entertaining. I would highly recommend Viking cruises. Embarkation was smooth and quick; there were only 192 passengers on the ship so it was ...

Friends suggested starting in Budapest. Actually we stayed in an Airbnb for 4 days in Budapest prior to boarding. We fell in love with Budapest; enjoying every minute we were there! On to the cruise. BTY this was my first cruise and I'm in my 60's. We found the accommodations, while small, expertly laid out and comfortable! Bear in mind, we are used to sailing a 43' sailboat. The room was ...
