October 14-28, Grand European Cruise

We chose the cruise for the same reasons as Judhess. Because of the low water, our trip was a big disappointment. After the first night spent on the Viking Idun in Budapest, we made our first transition to another ...

Not a cruise. A bus tour!

Always wanted to do a river cruise in Europe and this one provided the most highlights and included shore excursions. Going that far, we wanted to spend more time so we chose a 2 week cruise. The reason for the poor ...

Excellent cruise! So much to see

Vacationing on a river cruise is somewhat like an ocean cruise, but in some ways very different. Viking cruise is top notch. Very refined, luxurious experience. The Danube has so much history and activities to ...
