Fabulous cruise!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Embla

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

I have been interested in taking a Viking River Cruise since they sponsored "Downton Abbey." Having been to Vienna and Budapest in the 1970s, I was anxious to see them again. I cannot believe how wonderfully we were treated. I loved everything about the cruise. From the time we landed in Munich, we were treated like royalty. Our luggage was collected for us and delivered to our ...

We wanted to take a cruise, but not on a big ocean liner! something small and with a Cozie feel to it, we picked this cruise off our bucket list of places to visit! And we were not disappointed. everything was from the first step on to the last step off was the best!! Every person on that staff was friendly and polite. And very professional. We will look for a Viking cruise every time we travel. ...

Amazing views along the Danube, too much downtime and horrible dining arrangements

This was our first-ever river cruise experience. We did a lot of research and watched a lot of videos about the experience so we felt pretty well prepared for the trip. What we found is most people's pros/cons experiences were pretty consistent with ours. Knowing what we know now we also would have planned our trip differently. I'll explain. This journey started in Budapest with one night ...

From the moment we were met in baggage claim until we passed back through security 11 days later we were treated to an utterly fantastic vacation by every Viking representative. Not a single details was lost along the way. We recovered from our jet lag with 3 days in Prague before boarding our ship, Embla. Prague is among one of our favorite cities in all of Europe and is must see on any European ...

This trip was 3 years in the planning the areas of visits and tours was a selling point. Since I enjoy comfort my travel companion and I opted for a Veranda suite was worth every penny. Fresh fruit and flowers every day a welcome bottle of Champagne a stocked fridge with water beer and wine what more could you ask and a big surprise free laundry if I would have known that I would have packed ...

My expectations, which were high, were exceeded in every aspect. The attention to passenger convenience and comfort, the attention to safety security, the choice of knowledgeable tour guides, the fabulous food, and schedule organization were managed with precision and expertise. Everyone on the staff treated the guests with the highest degree of courtesy and professionalism while exhibiting great ...

We started in Budapest and ended in Passau. Loved Budapest. Visited the white raven sky bar in the Hilton. Such great views Need reservations even for a drink only. Ship was clean and comfortable. Staff were so friendly and they treat you like family. Enjoy day time sailings to enjoy the views from balcony or top deck. Concert in Vienna was above my expectations. Enjoy the excursions be ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We went on the Embla for our 30th Anniversary. I really liked the River Cruise because it was adults only, the food was really good, the staff was friendly, you make new friendships and get to see parts of the world you have never seen before. We would go to sleep and wake up in a new place. I would suggest paying extra for the Cesky Kumlov on foot tour. It is a beautiful village with quaint ...

We chose Viking because everyone we had talked to that had been on a Viking river cruise said it was the best sailing experience they had ever had. Add us to the list of those who will recommend Viking to anyone that asks. The included excursions were well organized and provided insights into the history and current highlights of the port we were in. The one suggestion would be to time the ...

More than a "Once in a Lifetime" Vacation

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Embla

Cakester
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Being that it was our first Viking River Cruise, or any kind of cruise, the questions abounded. But from landing in Munich to begin our journey, to the boarding of the River Boat Embla, we quickly discovered that the Viking Crew had everything in hand and all of our questions, and those even not thought of were answered. It was actually such a whirlwind adventure we didn't even realize how great ...
