Extension in Prague was great, wonderful city but the Marriott they booked us at was the worst Marriott we ever stayed at. First there was construction noise all day, when we complained to the front desk the woman said nothing she could do. Our view was of a lower roof top...oh and the bar did not know how to make a Shirley Temple or apparently anything except a Mai Tai, the drink of the day ...

Please beware that Viking does not get the premiere ports on cruises. As we cruised on the Danube we went by all the beautiful locations tomport in Passau, Germany & ended what I would call a “ghetto” port. Please look at the photo I have posted that shows our table with 2 glasses of champagne with our scenery of rusted out machinery and water tanks. This is not the type of image that you see ...

We chose this cruise for the Christmas Markets. I did find the cabin small. Dining was delicious and the staff are wonderful. Very attentive. All excursions are handled with every detail considered and taken care of. The ship is beautiful and well maintained. We were always greeted when leaving and returning to the ship. There was always water bottles available to take, and sometimes we were ...

This was our tenth cruise but first river cruise. This was far better than any cruise yet. It was so nice to have most services included in the costs. (excursions, air fare, drinks, wifi, water....) The ship was very new and it looked like it. The staff was very helpful. The food was excellent! Just a wonderful trip. We started in Budapest. We had a few nights in a Hotel and then a ...

We were fortunate the Danube water levels rose enough that we could sail most of the trip. Excellent crew in dining, housekeeping and cruise director kept us informed throughout cruise. Breakfast was best meal for our group of six. Excellent made to order omelette or fried eggs, numerous warm dishes, cheese, cold meats, best oatmeal with assortment of toppings, wonderful pastries and homemade ...

My wife and I have always wanted to take a river cruise with Viking. Their commercials are enticing and we thought we would have a wonderful trip. We agreed with Viking’s CEO, Torstein Hagen, that travel was broadening and time was short. This cruise was expensive and we saved a long time to take it. Unfortunately, reality did not meet expectations. We we were forced to take long bus rides to ...

We chose this cruise because of the wonderful experience that my niece had on this same cruise last year. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Our room was superb and the young lady that took care of the room was very friendly and did a wonderful job. The ship was very modern and spotless and our room was only a short walk to the dining areas. The food was excellent and the service ...

My friend and I chose this cruise because we had never experienced a river cruise nor had we seen some of the places offered on this itinerary. I had heard nothing but wonderful things about Viking so I was truly looking forward to a wonderful trip. I was not disappointed. The ship was clean and offered everything we needed, but in a very small cabin. I've been on ocean cruises so I was ...

I chose this cruise to celebrate my wife's 90th Birthday IN STYLE. The 2 for 1 price with air included and an included shore excursion in each port plus a free booze pkg. sealed the deal! As first time Viking longboat river cruisers we really did not know what to expect. We have cruised the Med. the Caribbean, Alaska, Eastern & Western Europe on the BIG cruise liners and wanted a more ...

Age 70s

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with the Danube River Cruise. We left from Budapest and after a long night/day of traveling, it was nice to get to the boat and relax in the lounge. fWe couldn't have asked for better weather - everything was perfect. The crew on the Vilhjalm was excellent; they went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed. Our stateroom was always ...
