We have been ocean cruising for many years and have gone to many parts of the world with our children. Now that they are adults, we decided to make our own adventures. This was my husband’s and my first River Cruise and it was a disappointment. It is a more expensive cruise than our past Ocean cruises but I was excited enough about this that I was already planning more in the future. First ...

This review is for the ten night Passage to Eastern Europe itinerary. Kudos to Viking for their product quality. The hotels in Budapest and Bucharest were outstanding. Viking Ullur was perfectly maintained and the crew was friendly, competent and efficient. The quality of the food was excellent and the excursions were well organized and informative. The only truly negative part of this ...

We chose this cruise because we'd never been to Romania, Serbia, or Bulgaria, and we wanted additional time in Budapest, where we had been cut short on a prior trip. We did the pre-extension to Transylvania, which was wonderful. Gorgeous area, and beautiful mideval town of Brasov. I have taken 8 Viking River cruises, and have always been impressed with the ships and personnel. However, each ...

We particularly enjoy river cruising, especially on Viking! Our cruise was from Bucharest, Romania to Budapest, Hungary. We chose this cruise because we were curious about the countries in this part of the Danube River. As we expected, we had excellent guides and excursions. The countries we visited are still recovering from the Communist era and the guides were honest in their appraisal of the ...

We tend to be interested in the non-mainstream destinations. Not that many have not visited the countries on this itinerary, but they are not mainstream vacation destinations. We would likely never choose one or two of these countries and fly direct and build a vacation itinerary ourselves. From the minute we boarded the Viking Ullur we were impressed with the crew and what was in front of ...

My husband and I have travelled around the world extensively and visited many countries, but we knew little of the lower Danube and the Eastern European countries, which is why we chose this itinerary. We started in Bucharest, Romania, and cruised through Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, ending in Budapest, Hungary. This part of the Danube is not postcard scenery like the upper part, but it is ...

My wife had relatives that were from a number of the countries on this cruise which is why we chose it. We saw a diversity of sites which is what made this cruise a big hit. Some of the excursions were very unique, including visiting a person's home in Croatia and seeing old Communist era buildings during the excursions. Budapest was our favorite location, a beautiful city, especially at night. ...

We wanted a cruise that would go to Budapest and was not longer than 10 days, it seem like an interesting journey, it was very insightful, I loved the trip in croatia where we visited the homes of the people that lived through the war. i found it very interesting, since i also had to flee a communist country. the going to the farm it was very dusty I suggest the pour some water so that we don't ...

We were on an Eastern European Danube River cruise and visited Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Hungary. The tours were very good, and the tour guides excellent. We enjoyed learning about the history of this region. The three large cities we visited were Bucharest, Belgrade, and Budapest. We had two full days in Budapest, which was great. The food on board was excellent. The crew was ...

If anyone is thinking about a VIKING river cruise please take note, Dont do it !! Consider AMA, we paid £1k less and it was FABULOUS. We have just wasted £7k on the worst cruise ive ever been on. Dont pay extra for a balcony you cannot use it. There is always a boat docked next door and you cannot use it. The cleaner comes into your cabin when you are having Breakfast, for all you will be out all ...
