The cruise was great, the food was really good, the tour guides were pleasant and knowledgeable. It was easily the best vacation my wife and I were ever on. We enjoyed the smaller setting with only 178 guests on our cruise. The crew was fantastic. We enjoyed getting to know other passengers. The food was much better that the other cruises we have been on. It was a nice experience to go to sleep in one city and wake in another. The highlights for us were Budapest and Vienna. The only negative was our flight on Lufthansa was the only negative. 30 people's luggage were left in Frankfurt. Our flight coming in was 45 minutes late but it was 45 minutes late leaving so I don't think that was the issue. Leaving, we had to stand in the rain in the low thirties as we waited to board from the tarmac. I would recommend avoiding Lufthansa and Frankfurt if all possible. We're ready to take another cruise minus Lufthansa! Read Less

Always wanted to see Christmas markets in Germany/Austria. Saw an email three months prior to the trip with pricing offer that seemed too good to pass up. Have done several ocean cruises in Europe - this was our first river cruise. We really enjoyed the slower pace, the ease of walking right to the center of town from our ship (unlike ocean ships where you sometimes must get transportation from the port to the city center). The ship's decor was elegant and simple. Service was excellent, very friendly crew. The food was very good, with regional menu offerings. There is no fitness area on the ship, but we walked our legs off nearly every day so we didn't miss it. The entertainment on river cruises can't compare to the big production shows you see on ocean ships, but the singing groups they brought on in a couple of the ports did a nice job. It was the first time in five months that the ship had been able to complete the entire journey, due to low water levels all summer. Thankful that we only had to unpack one time and were able to stay on the same ship for the entire journey without having to be bused between ports. The port towns/cities were all very charming and interesting - Christmas decorations and markets were very beautiful. The tours that Viking includes in the cruise price were very well done. Could not tell the difference between the included tours and the couple of tours that we paid extra for. We will definitely cruise with Viking again. Read Less

Just what we were looking for. We needed to get out of town during that time and this provided a no fuss way to do it. During the trip we had no worries or concerns about transfers, baggage, meals or entertainment. The necessities were taken care of seamlessly and the added value was extraordinary. The ship was spacious and clean, I never felt crowded or 'herded' as I have on other trips. I do not know how they kept our cabin so clean and ship-shape as we seldom saw a chambermaid unless one was needed, but the room and facilities were always spotless. As far as the other help went (waiters, bartenders, etc.) they were also extraordinary. I even have a joke that I tell my friends, when I asked a staff member if he ever said 'no' his answer was of course 'no'. Everyone went out of their way to provide for our needs. The food was excellent and of course the staff would never say 'no' to a special food request. We even came back from ashore late one afternoon, freezing cold and way too late for lunch but of course they still served us, as I said they never say no. All the food was just great but we looked forward to every dinner as they was always something very special on the menu. Every stop was a new adventure. Not only were the guides local, knowledgeable, proud of their town but were lots of fun. Not a bad guide for the whole trip and we had many. There was so much to do everyday that we had to make time to relax and get some rest although when we did we felt like we were missing something and we didn't want to miss a thing. I don't know what else to add except I hope to get chance for another Viking adventure Read Less
