We wanted to try a river cruise and found it was so much more relaxing than ocean cruises. The service was wonderful as was the food. The small ship made it more likely to meet new people. The tours were well led and the guides were easy to hear and understand. Our cabin with a French balcony was comfortable but with very little space to store clothes. Cabins with a regular balcony had almost ...

We chose this cruise (Grand European) for the river destinations and on the whole were not disappointed. The outings were well coordinated, guided very well, extremely informational and the staff was exceptional. The cabin was small but adequate in that you do not spend much time there. The dining was very good with excellent selections for all meals and the service was exceptional. We booked ...

We choose this cruise to return to some of the places my wife and I visited during my military career some 30+ years ago. Found the cruise in your brochure and my travel agent recommended it. Everything went smoothly from arriving in Budapest to leaving Amsterdam 2 weeks later. The ship is wonderful and everything is clean and functional. The dining experiences were exceptional. The staff ...

This Grand European river cruise has been on my wish list for a long time. We started in Budapest on Saturday, May 6, the Skadi is a lovely ship, our cabin was nice, it would have been nice to have two chairs instead of one chair and a stool, but otherwise was comfortable. The dining was wonderful, I needed special foods because of allergies and Ivan was wonderful assisting me. The ship's ...

We chose the Grand European Cruise because the itinerary covered destinations we had not visited previously. We chose Viking because of our experience with them on our previous Russian river cruise and our Mediterranean cruise. We booked both the pre and post cruise stays in Amsterdam and Budapest. Transfers were smoothly handled by Viking. Viking staff were exceptionally helpful in arranging for ...

Since the culture in Europe is changing so rapidly with immigration, I wanted to visit the Netherlands and Belgium now. The Skadi is one of the new Viking long ships and is very nice. Having traveled on a previous Viking cruise on an older ship, I was disappointed the window in our lower cabin was much smaller than the older ship. Be careful to point the shower head away from the shower door, or ...

We chose this cruise because it took us to new ports we'd never seen before. While we had been to Amsterdam as a pre-cruise extension last October (Rhine Getaway), we throughly enjoyed being back there. The Belgian cities were absolutely delightful, with Bruges being my favorite. The Netherlands is a delightfully unique place to visit and ending with the stunning Keukenhof Gardens was ...

I really enjoyed our cruise, our cabin was beautiful, the staff was amazing especially our cruise director. As we embarked early in the morning we were greeted with coffee and pastries, we were lucky enough to be the first cruise of the season so we got to go straight to our rooms. Every night we were informed of the next days activities and everything always ran smoothly and efficiently when ...

The ship, food, tours, and overall customer service was awesome! Grand European gave us the opportunity to see 4 countries (Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary) as well as the Rhine, Main, and the Danube Rivers! This was a marvelous itinerary! The scenery was beautiful. The tours were outstanding! The shore excursions gave us the opportunity to learn about the culture at each city we visited. ...

We took a Viking River Cruise in Russia 5 years ago, and enjoyed it so much that when we needed a new vacation destination we didn't hesitate to pick Viking again, this time the Grand European from Amsterdam to Budapest with a three night extension in Prague. The ship is lovely and clean, staff ever so friendly and helpful. We were in balcony room 307 which was just a couple rooms down from the ...
