Viking knocks it out of the ballpark again! This is our second river cruise with Viking and we will go again! They take care of all the details and never leave you wondering or wandering on your own, feeling lost. Even if you choose to go out on your own, they kindly give you all the info you need to get around and back to the ship on time. In Vienna, our cruise director led a group to the ...

Transfers to and from long boat very good. From Munich toRegensburg a little long, most of us taking a well deserved nap. Arriving at the Viking Var and directly escorted to our room which was very nice and clean just a little cramped, but workable. All meals were very good, offering local cuisine and US cuisine. All tours or excursions were very informed with very well informed ...

My brother-in-law turned 60 September 25th so we chose this cruise on these dates so we could tie in Oktoberfest to the end of our cruise. Thought this was my husband's and my 3rd cruise, it was the first for my sister and brother -in-law. The cruise was perfect in every way! The service is 5 star! It just amazes me that the crew remembers not only your name but what you drink. Each evening, ...

Danubiously enriching!

The Viking Var staff were so helpful and professional. The pre-cruise extension in Prague was spectacular and the Marriott Prague was in the middle of all the action and within walking distance to everything. The local tour guides partnering with Viking are so well-versed in the history of their local towns and more. Excursions were very well organized and included music performances were ...

Viking just does it right!!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Var

We recently did our first river cruise (Romantic Danube) on the Viking Var that sailed from Budapest to Regensburg. We also took advantage of the 2 day pre-arrival stay in Budapest. From the minute Viking met us at the airport to when we disembarked in Regensburg we were so impressed with how smoothly everything ran. On board we had the BEST cruise director, Benne. She was upbeat and cheerful ...

My wife and I wanted to experience our first river cruise together, so we selected Viking, strongly suggested by our travel agent. The Romantic Danube cruise took us from Hungary to Germany offering many historic venues. The pros: Superb on board service. Excellent food preparation and selection. The cons: #1 - Apparently because of limited docking space, Viking needs to dock ...

We decided to take advantage of the 25th Anniversary special and extend in Budapest so we would be there for our 45th Anniversary. The trip itself was great with enjoyable and informative included tours. Regensburg and Passau were living history sites. Tip #1Grab a Viking Umbrella if rain is coming-we had quite a bit those 2 days. Tip2 sign up for the micro brewery tour in Regensburg- lots of ...

Friends invited us on this trip to celebrate a few major milestones and it didn’t disappoint. The boat was very nice and the crew and staff were nicer. The cabin was small but had a great veranda with chairs and a view and plenty of storage. The crew was very attentive, friendly, and fun. The food and drinks were plentiful and delicious. Especially the soups! The destinations were beautiful ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Viking river experience was so much better than I imagined. We had a group of fifteen friends and some family who traveled together. The boat was very clean, the staff were fantastic and we all knew each other by name by the end of the week. The food was delicious, every meal, believe me no one will go hungry. Our activity director Bennie was so much fun, we loved her and all the activities ...

Wonderful experience

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

Chose Romantic Danube to celebrate wedding anniversary and birthday. We probably over-planned optional excursions because we didn't have enough down time to enjoy sitting! Crew was exceptionally helpful, friendly and remembered our names. We had some problems of our own making (losing a cell phone for example) that the crew responded to immediately and successfully. Food exceeded our ...
