Viking Grand European River Cruise, Budapest to Amsterdam

Review for Viking Magni to Europe - River Cruise

I just came back from a 15-day Budapest to Amsterdam last week. At best the food quality is very average may be substandard in most days. We had only two good meals, Chateaubriand and Rack of lamb. Especially the regional food menus nightly were horrible. The Wiener schnitzel was like the bark of an old tree and the German Roast Pork with Crispy Skin was like a tree trunk, dry and chewy! We ...

We had a cruise cancelled at the beginning of the pandemic so we used the credit to take this longer cruise. Other than the awful Viking Air service, the cruise itself, especially the crew, was outstanding. The most enjoyable parts were extra shore excursions that were in very small groups, especially the "vigorous" hikes. However, I wouldn't call any of the hikes vigorous (and I'm 68 though I do ...

My husband and I took the Viking Ocean Cruise to Alaska and loved everything about Viking. We heard many people on the cruise say that they met their 'cruising' friends on the River Cruises, and how small and friendly the river cruises were. We can honestly say that after this cruise, we agree with ALL of the positive statements we heard about the Viking River Cruises. The cabins were perfect, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first cruise experience. We added both the pre and post ground extensions and enjoyed them both. Viking reps meet you at the airport upon arrival (even when you're 90 minutes late) and handle everything, cars, bags, itinerary, recommendations and rooms. The same happens when you leave. Complete feeling of confidence to travel in countries you don't know and where you don't speak ...

We chose this departure to align with flower bloom at Keukenhof Garden in Amsterdam. Weather, water levels and crowds were all good. Food on the Magni was great. They included cuisine from each country we visited and the menu options were very good. Service on board was fantastic too. Only down side was the Covid threat that bounced a few people off of the cruise. I like that Viking is adults ...

Countries visited, the cruise was excellent. Service was outstanding from all departments, crew members were polite and ready to assist at all times. The cities visited were interesting with the excellent guides for each tour. It was nice sitting near the bow experiencing the scenery during the voyage. The small number of passengers was delightful which made it easy to find seating every day. I ...

A wonderful trip. Started with three days in Prague, and walked one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The hotel they provided was very nice, and central to our travels. From there, we bussed down to Budapest. Again, a very comfortable trip and immediately loaded onto the river boat. The whole boat was comfortable, and our suite was more very nice and had a lot of storage area, a nice ...

Cologne Cathedral. The staff was very efficient, friendly and helpful. The meals were terrific . We went during covid so every one was tested every day. this gave every one a good felling of extra ...

As usual, Viking service was up to standard, the same as before the pandemic. VERIFLY app for the pre-voyage verification of vaccination was free and simple to use. The entire 110passengers and 50 crew were vaccinated and tested daily (100% NEGATIVE the entire cruise). Masks were appropriately worn and provided (KN95 for most countries). Cleaning packets given as we left or boarded the ship. Buses ...

For lots of reasons we booked this Grand European Tour for mid October. We had a great time, but decided we probably won't do another river cruise right away, maybe not ever again. Not a knock on Viking, but a better understanding of who we are as travelers. So, the good and great. Incredibly clean, inviting atmosphere populated with helpful, gracious people, all of whom try to make your trip ...
