Grand European does not disappoint!
"The Grand European river cruise included so many of the places we wanted to visit in Hungary, Austria, Germany and Netherlands, including Budapest, Passau, Vienna, Nuremberg, Cologne, the windmills of Kinderdijk, Amsterdam, and many other interesting and unique stops in Germany.We liked the advantage of being on a river cruise to so many different locations and being able to unpack only once...."Read More

The cruise was fantastic in many ways. The sights, the food, the excursions, the crew, the ship, you name it. Viking, as part of the cruise cost, also provided the air fare and transportation to and from the airport. Very handy indeed. One very nice factor is that Viking offers one free excursion per port, which is ideal for cost savings. But there is one word of advice to Viking and every guest ...

Needed a winter vacation and have always wanted to try a Viking river cruise. We took a Christmas market cruise on the Danube from Budapest to Passau. Viking handled everything including flights and transfers and it was seamless for me. Next time I might book my own flights to cut down on transfers, not have to leave the ship at 4 am, and upgrade with miles, but for my first time, it was very nice ...

The three of us - my husband, I and our son - took a Danube River cruise on Viking Baldur from Budapest to Passau the week before Christmas. It was cold and raining or pouring most of the days. However, despite the miserable weather, our overall experience with Viking was fairly good and I would give it 4 stars if not an extremely unpleasant event that took place the last night and a return ...

We chose this cruise because of a sale. We had included airfare and a great price so we took the plunge! It was everything you can imagine! We were pampered, fed amazing food, taken on beautiful excursions, had incredible sights from the boat, and made friendships that we treasure! I have Celiac disease (a food allergy). Every morning, the maitre de met me and gave me a menu with choices for ...

Overall we had an ok time, but I would never do this again. Maybe with a different company but our lovely 25th anniversary River cruise turned into ugly docking situations and bus rides. Not worth the price. Initially, I did thorough research and knew low water levels may be a problem so I purchased the very high priced trip insurance that allows you to cancel for any reason. Unfortunately ...

we loved the whole experience with the cruise. the service and amenities were delightful. staff were outstanding and kind. the program director seemed to be everywhere at once — on tours, giving lectures, he was amazing! the food on board was excellent and one had many choices at each meal. we recommend the silver beverage pkg for the most wonderful wine options. interestingly enough, the ...

We chose a grand European tour so we could see many sites on one trip. We chose Viking because of their high ratings, and we were not disappointed. The ship was nicely laid out with opportunities for indoor or outdoor relaxing. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. The food was delicious, and we appreciated the serving sizes- so much more appropriate than American restaurants. We did ...

The Danube River and up through the Rhine River have always been appealing. The scenery was just like the picture books and advertisements. The Activities Director would fill us in on what to expect the next day. He covered everything from what to wear, what not to wear, where to get money exchanged and where to get a cold beer. The chef would come in after the update and let us know the ...

It was planned years ago but COVID came to view. Word of mouth that Viking cruises are nice and it’s very true. Ship was very clean, exceptional crew and very superb food. Been to other cruises, but food and beverages(local beers, white and red wines)were so far the best of all. Our pre and post cruise stopover was excellent. Onboard entertainment was excellent and outside tours were great(I ...

Although we've done many previous "big ship" cruises this was our first Viking River Cruise. I must say the experience was outstanding! Though due to low water we had to switch ships at the end of the 1st week from the Viking Magni to the Viking Baldur, even that was an adventure. The entire cruise was very well organized from excursions to arrival/departures. The itinerary (the Grand European ...
