This was a birthday present for my 60th birthday and something I always wanted to do. My family sent myself and my husband on a Danube river cruise on the Viking Prestige. My husband wasn't that keen as doesn't enjoy organised trips and finds cruising a not particularly sustainable holiday choice but agree to go. He was also concerned that it would not be active enough for us, The trip was enjoyable but alas it was extremely regimental in many respects particularly the excursions which didn't leave you with any free time and the meal times (dinner was always a rush to find a seat which wasn't that relaxing) and the fact that most of the excursions started so early in the day that you didn't real feel like you were on holiday. If you like that sort of holiday then this is more for you. We were disappointed at the lack of daylight cruising and the distances the boat moored at some destinations. The highlights of the trip were the river cruising during the day, especially going through the river locks and the free time we spent wandering around the towns when choosing not to go on some excursions. The staff on the ship were pleasant but as this was towards the end of the season were a bit jaded. The food was nice but nothing that special and the wine pretty generic most of the time. The cabin was pleasant and I realised later that we were lucky to be on the Prestige as the cabins seem to be slightly larger than most of the later built Viking ships. Anything smaller would have been a real squeeze. Overall we had a pleasant time and there are no significant complaints but the trip you experience is not really the one presented in the Viking documents or advertisements. Read Less

We always wanted to cruise the Danube and this cruise didn’t disappoint! Perfect from start to finish! Sailing was perfect in October, sunny and warm the whole time-of course that is not always guaranteed. All the stops were fun and informative. The food and staff were excellent, and the scenery was exceptional. The excursion’s were all top-notch. They provided awesome guides and really delved into the history of the region and the various historical events that led the the country to were it is now. The food on board was awesome. They tried to bring regional cuisine into each menu so that you could truly experience the particular food of each location, and since we were visiting five different countries, this was no small task! The evening entertainment was also regionally inspired, trying to bring a bit of the local culture on board each night. Can’t wait for our next cruise which is already booked for next October!

I went along on this cruise with my mother and her partner, not expecting a lot. I'd heard about the big ocean cruises which are like crowded, floating malls full of drunk people, and a million a la carte expenses: taking a cruise sounded like the last thing I'd ever want to do. Well below a root canal. But this was absolutely wonderful. Everything was taken care of, from flights to pick up at the airport to transfers after. We did two cruise extensions, Munich and Salzburg, and had a wonderful guide, Maya, who kept track of us, answered every question, filled us in on lots of local tidbits, history, and interesting facts. We were able to relax and enjoy the experience. The other people on our extension days moved onto the cruise with us, so we already knew people when we got on board. Dining is open seating, so you end up meeting people and making friends very easily. The food was absolutely delicious, and as we traveled down river, the chef presented local options so that we were able to taste our way through the various countries. (Hats off to Attila, the executive chef!) The ship itself was beautiful and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. And no one under 18, so no children dashing up and down the hall screaming. Whew. Way to bring a nice cruise out of warp speed. And really, no drunk young adults screaming in the halls either. (Vegas - shudder.) Just perfect peace! And no extra expenses except hard liquor (beer and wine provided), and special shore excursions. But no surprises at all on the money front! (I had a friend get handed a drink when she got on hercruise ship, and then found a $10 charge on her bill later. No one likes to be a mark!) The captain was very nice, and offered an interesting introduction to the ship and wheelhouse, showed us how the ship sailed... or motored, the technical array, etc. The front desk staff were *saints*. My mother is quite elderly, and didn't know her energy level until a little while before a shore excursion, and the staff who arranged those activities added us at the last minute several times, even though I know they had to reprint everything. And they always had a "gentle" option with shorter distances, fewer/no stairs, minimal cobblestones. That was a lifesaver for us, since my Mom can't walk very fast or far. The shore excursions (there was one included one at every stop, so no surprise costs there) were amazing. I visited a farm in Austria, made bread, and then while the bread was baking, went to the Mittendorfer Distillery for a tour (yum), and then back to the farm for a lunch of our bread and homemade sides and home cured meats and cheeses. We did a home visit in Bratislava that was really a highlight. It was delightful to meet and talk with locals, and the couple's 12-year-old girl had a little business selling her own homemade soaps, so I was able to buy something really, really local for my daughters. There are too many shore excursions to list them all here, but they were all good. So: The food was amazing. The ambiance was peaceful and lovely. The staff were great. The activities were well-planned, interesting, and educational. I'd love to go again, pretty much anywhere on any cruise they offer. I heard rumors that they are talking about doing some American cruises, maybe down the Mississippi. I'd do that in a heart beat. I'd do the Columbia River, too, even though I live only a couple of miles from it. I know I'd have a great time and learn a lot. Read Less
