This was a covid carry over cruise for us but we added the passion play and a pre and post extension. We have taken a prior cruise snd have seen some other German rivers but we were intrigued by the itinerary especially Vienna and Budapest on this one. Unfortunately we were unable to dock in Budapest due to low water but Viking took care of things best they could and included a river cruise for ...

We chose this cruise because we've long wanted to visit Budapest and Prague, and extensions to both cities were available. Of course, we've also long wanted to cruise the Danube, especially to see Austria. Also, we'd heard so many good things about Viking cruises and we wanted to see for ourselves. We were not disappointed! Everything from start to finish was incredibly well-organized. Both of the ...

This was the first cruise for my wife, the second for me, and it was everything we had hoped it would be. The pre-cruise extension to Oberammergau for the Passion Play was excellent. The only wrinkle was beyond Viking's control-100 degree weather and no air conditioning in the hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The play itself was spectacular. The staff was outstanding, friendly and ...

Whatever you do, do not catch covid on a Viking cruise

We are presently isolating in a hotel in Germany after having caught covid whilst cruising on the Danube despite being fully immunised, and are now feeling completely abandoned by Viking. Prior to the cruise we had pondered long and hard over whether to postpone it for another year, due to the extremely infectious nature of the latest covid variant sweeping across Europe. To help us understand ...

We always wanted to attend the Passion Play in Oberammergau. Letting Viking navigate the logistics of the play, CoVID, and then time on the Danube was very appealing. Viking feels more collaborative in experience instead of transactional. Even the few grumpy passengers were handled with grace. Attention to keeping us healthy and happy was evident. There were some pre-trip frustrations with air ...

My wife and I enjoyed the cruise so much that soon after returning home we booked another Viking cruise on an ocean ship for November 2022. The accommodations are extremely nice and help to make the trip comfortable. For me, the food was exquisite. I have an allergy for many spices but peppers in particular. The chef did a fantastic job of preparing some incredible dishes for me. The ...

I had already. been in the Rhine and wanted to explore others places. It was a wonderful trip and would love to do another one next year! The food and service was fantastic. I loved the little games they played in the lounge in the evenings. Angel the piano player was fantastic and would play request. He was much better than the one on the Rhine cruise. The staff go out of their way to make ...

Wonderful service, great weather and a lovely Danube cruise

A Danube cruise was chosen as my wife had not been to any of the destinations and so in a week we experienced 3 different capital cities as well as some charming countryside. We had previously cruised at sea through Celebrity and Princess so the river experience was familiar in many respects but arguably better due to guaranteed no movement and the ability to moor right in the heart of the ...

I had a wonderful time on my cruise, the crew was wonderful and very helpful. The food was delicious and I liked that they had meals connected with the regions that we went thought during the cruise. I would recommend it. The cruise director was great and he made sure that everything went smoothly. The tours were good and the tour guides were very informative at each of our stops. We had ...

Don't waste $1800 on a balcony cabin on a Viking Riverboat cruise on the Danube

We sailed on the Viking Rinda for the Danube Waltz cruise on April 3, 2022. The cruise was only disappointing in that we wasted $1800 getting a balcony cabin which we found out was NOT worth the expense. First of all, the balcony's are very small - 3' by 5' - barely enough room to sit in a proper chair. Secondly, and most important to us, the riverboats tied up to each other in the ports at ...
