Romantic Danube; Nothing Romantic About It!

Review for Viking Danube to Europe - River Cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

I was on the Romantic Danube trip from Budapest to Nuremberg 11/14/2015 to 11/21/2015. I will never travel with Viking again! Viking's management only cares about filling out the capacity of the each cruise ship. I have listed a few of my issues with the company below. 1) Safety on board is a huge concern, especially since the audience for these cruises is largely American. No checks for ...

We cruised for about 3 days, On buses the rest of the time. Be cautious if cruising is a desire. We unpacked 3 times. Our Cruise started at a hotel in Budapest (Corinthia for Fri Night) rather than a Longship. Lots of bus rides between docked house boats. What a joke for a cruise. If you want a bus tour through the Danube towns then this is for you. Viking Management knows all of this so ...

We did a Viking Danube River Cruise with two other couples in late August. The cruise was scheduled to depart from Nuremberg and finish in Budapest. We never saw either city as Viking said the water was too low. My issue is that the Viking management knew well in advance that the water was too low given the shortage of rainfall. They were very disingenuous, and should have given people a ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Many reviews essentially repeat what others have said which is good in that they reinforce others' voices. But what we want to stress are a couple of points not often made. First, two major differences between river and ocean cruising; and second, the differences between cruising and land-touring. The first point: . The smaller number of passengers means that we actually got to know ...

From start to finish, Viking Cruise Lines again proved to know what they are doing when it comes to: 1. Treating their clients; 2. Arranging transportation to and from airports; 3. Hiring professional staff and 4. Selection of cruise destinations and ports of call. I dealt directly with Viking, that is I didn't use a travel agent, and was fortunate enough to get Joleen Quatch as my contact with ...

This was our first experience on a Viking River Cruise and we both loved it! The entire staff on the Viking Danube is to be commended. Pleasant, friendly and helpful from the moment we boarded till we said goodbye at the airport. We both enjoyed the food, entertainment and daily excursions both guided and on our own. While onboard cruising down the Danube, Main and Rhine we relaxed and enjoyed ...

One of the Best Vacations Ever!

I am a travel agent (semi-retired), and have been on many trips, visiting many countries, though only 2 cruises. I can seriously endorse river-cruising to be one of the best ways to travel and see a lot with very little stress at all. One of the best aspects of this mode of travel is the fact that you unpack once, and re-pack only when you are ready to head home. You can be as active, or as ...

First time in Holland and Belgium for myself and a friend (we have traveled many places), and this turned out to be one of our top 10 favorites, ever. Much of that enjoyment is directly owed to the shipboard staff and crew of the Viking River Cruise organization. We visited many places and sights in addition to the main ports listed in our itinerary. In most cases, it was as though we were ...

Day 1: Arrived in Nuremberg in the late morning and the Viking rep was waiting for the flight. When we arrived at the ship embarkation went very smoothly and we were informed that the cabin would not be available until later in the afternoon but that a light lunch was available in the lounge and that the bus would take anyone who desired into Nuremberg for sightseeing on your own. The lunch was ...
