Enjoyed every aspect of our Rhine cruise last year and was keen to experience The Danube. I wouldn’t have chosen another company as all aspects of our previous cruising experience were excellent. We wee not disappointed this year! The customer care Viking offers is second to none. Everything ran smoothly from the time we booked until the time our cruise ended. All the crew are pleasant and ...

We have wanted to try a river cruise for some time and we also wanted to experience a Strauss concert. This cruise satisfied both needs. The off boat tours were all amazing, very well organised and the local guides were exceptional. The lady who was Program Director was very good she was very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The quality of the food and service was extremely ...

Our first river cruise was delightful. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly helpful staff made it enjoyable. The food was enjoyable with the menu reflecting the countries that we were passing through as well as offering other choices plus a standard menu. The evening meals were normally at 7.00p.m. with one sitting and plenty of time to chat over the provided glass of wine. Dress was smart casual ...

We had no previous experiences on a Cruise or River Boat Cruises. This was our anniversary. We planned a great deal before venturing out. The Cruise line surprised us by noting that our cabin was upgraded to a suite. We enjoyed the accommodations, were excellent. Ship was very well kept and clean with a very friendly staff. Our house keeper was always available to us and look to please ...

We loved the historical sites experienced in the wonderful free and optional tours of the itinerary selected by the designers of the cruise. Our selection of the excursions available provided excellent activities for us commensurate with our age (elderly) and physical capabilities. The size of the optional groups (and even of the entire group aboard ship) was small and not uncomfortably ...

I've always wanted to take a Viking River Cruise and was finally able to check it off my bucket list this September. I'd heard many great things about them and wasn't disappointed. The service was impeccable, the food delicious, the cabin extremely comfortable. There was always a snack available (a selection of coffees and teas from the beverage station, fresh fruit, fresh cookies) and there was ...

My mom likes to take her 3 "girls" (all in our 50's) on a trip each summer. This time she picked a doozy. We did the 7 night Danube Waltz with the 4 night pre-cruise extension (Munich and Salzburg). The hotels were well located, and the tours were good. It was nice to have some time to get over jet lag before boarding. Embarkation (for us) went smoothly - we pretty much just walked on, ...

We booked this cruise for it's Itinerary. Especially enjoyed the cities visited and the scenic countryside. The Viking staff was professional, accommodating, efficient, but not intrusive. The cruise director, as well as, all the staff, kept us informed of all procedures and processes. We liked the basic all in one pricing structure. The boat was very clean and easy to navigate. An older boat, the ...

We chose this particular cruise because we wanted to see a part of Europe we had never seen before and to also celebrate our 25 year anniversary. Viking was a dream vacation we had saved for and we were not disappointed at all! We also were lucky enough to meet and make friends with a Federal Judge on board with us who was allowed by the captain to renew our vows in the ships library, and which ...

Pampered from first day to the last. We will definitely take another Viking Cruise. The staff was so very caring and helpful. I needed a gluten free menu and the extra given to me to take care that I had food I could eat was amazing. The tour guides were exceptional. The Abbey with the Apricot Snapps was amazingly beautiful and only Viking tourists were present. The daily trips were wonderful from ...
