Cruised the same cruise in 2019, but from Amsterdam to Budapest, wanted to celebrate our 50th anniversary on the cruise. Viking gives you everything they promised plus more, food was great with local dishes as you cruised in different areas on the rivers. Great information about the castles that you passed by, onboard entertainment was very good , singers, dancers and food preparation, Also ...

Viking Flash sale made it affordable to our group. Everything was taken care of, from out airfare, transfers, cabin,. As we arrived in Munich the Viking representative was there to greet our group. We loaded onto a very comfortable bus for the two hour ride to Passau. We then boarded the ship. From start the finish, the hospitality was on display. We were shown to our rooms, and the steward ...

Sailing the Danube

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our second Viking Cruise. We had the same type room which did not disappoint. The cleaning staff kept our room very clean. The view of the Danube was great although when you are parked in a lock, you don’t see anything. The excursions were well organized and interesting. We loved Vienna especially but did not feel that Slovakia offered much. I would recommend a different port. It ...

Wonderful Cruise but take it when weather is better!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

OrrinC
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We planned this trip months in advance, so we didn't know what the weather would be like in April. It turned out to be mostly cold and wet. The ship, the room, and the food were all superb! The tours and excursions were less so- the only accommodation to the weather was to offer us umbrellas as we walked out to stroll through Vienna and other cities in the rain. I wish there had been ...

Delightful Danube River Adventure

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

LibertyBella
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We certainly enjoyed our recent Danube River cruise on the Viking Vali. Yes, the weather was cool and rainy, but that did not affect our touring that much. We chose this time of year because we did not want to deal with potential low river water levels in the Summer or Fall. Overall Viking's arrival services were seamless--fast pick-up at the airport, comfortable bus transfer to the boat, ...

Another stellar Viking cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

TarHeelNana
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this because we wanted to visit Budapest and Prague so we also added pre and post extensions to the cruise for those cities. Budapest is full of interesting architecture and history. The public transportation is easy to navigate so we were able to experience a lot on our own in addition to the excursions that we booked through Viking. Favorite places to see were the Hungarian Parliament, ...

Amazing Sights from a Comfortable Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

Mike Chung
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This is our first river cruise and we are glad we chose Viking. Their Grand European Tour gives a wide perspective of modern day Europe, the ship is clean and modern, and the staff are all friendly. The meals are delicious and the dining room staff is efficient yet low-key. What sets Viking apart from the rest, though, is the depth of their excursion program. It gives you something to look ...

The Program Director made us feel like family - in fact everyone made us feel like we were friends

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We were impressed with the Viking ocean cruise we took last fall and thought we could try a river cruise - we were not disappointed - keep up the good work. We have been recommending Viking to all our friends and have already booked a Panama Canal cruise for next October with another couple. I usually don't fill out reviews - always thought they really didn't mean anything - however - I was ...

Best Way to See Europe!

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Vali

Bobbi B
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This trip was three years in the making, thanks to Covid. When we were finally able to go we were ecstatic. Our first experience with the Viking Vali team was when we arrived at the dock with two large suitcases. A very nice gentleman with a British accent ran up the steps and took our bags down to the dock. He told us he'd take care of them and to go aboard. We took another Covid test and ...
