Beautiful Danube on Viking Var
"As expected, the crew throughout the ship was focused on providing excellent service and a positive experience.There were always snacks or treats available somewhere on the ship and the coffee machine outside the dining room is awesome!..."Read More

Our First Viking River Cruise

We chose this cruise because the price was TERRIFIC and we wanted to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was the first time that we decided to cruise with Viking, so we were anxious to see how Viking cruises compared with another river cruise company. Overall, they were comparable in every way, but Viking was more expensive. (except for THIS particular cruise) We thought the included ...

We chose this trip for the time and price. We did the first leg from Amsterdam to Basil a couple years ago and enjoyed it with friends. This time it was only me and my husband. We were celebrating 56 years of marriage. We enjoyed the atmosphere, staff and fellow guest. The guides were great and always learn so much about the cities along the route. Michael our guest services was very ...

First. I think Viking is the best river cruise company around. Second. If we had done the Romantic Danube first and the Rhine Getaway second I think my review would be different. But the Rhine Getaway was so fabulous and magical that it is hard to compare. Our trip was also during an unusual low tide with ongoing airline travel issues - both problematic. That said - here are the highs and ...

We liked the itinerary, and after another river cruise company cancelled our trip a month before sailing (GCCL/OAT), we felt lucky to find this trip on Viking. I think in the long run, this was a much better choice, for less money! The crew is outstanding and truly make you feel welcome. Many knew your name by the second day on board. The drinks and food were great. We were told we might be ...

Viking dropped the ball on our Munich-Nuremberg transfer but will reimburse our private transportation cost. After that it was smooth sailing (though the Viking pre-cruise Nuremberg Hotel Le Meridian Grand Hotel had small rooms and poor A/C though a very good breakfast and sauna. We thought the larger Veranda Suite was just right with its additional French door in the bedroom, though more ...

There is no question that Viking is the top cruise provider, and this river cruise exceeded our high expectations. Every Viking associate, on ship and on shore, was well trained, and always willing to do whatever was needed for us. Without exception. We will definitely be back! Viking’s market is couples, not families with young children. The cities visited have only limited accessibility ...

Cruise Director reviewed the disembarking process for Friday. He explained that everyone would get a notice of what time to leave the ship on Friday morning and would be given a box breakfast for the road and the assistance of a Viking agent through check-in at the airport. At the bus parking area of terminal 2 the driver unloaded all 5 pieces of our luggage in the parking lot and got back ...

We wanted to visit Budapest because my husband had relatives that immigrated from there during WW II. Austria and Germany were countries we were eager to see, and we added Nuremberg and Prague for the WW II info and the beauty of Prague.The tour guides we had were friendly and knowledgable. The took great care to assure everyone was taken care of and accounted for. We loved how calm and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first cruise. It fit our schedule and purse as a once-in-lifetime adventure. Planned for 2020, we were compelled to try again once travel opened again. For many onboard, this was not their first or last they said and we know why. From the moment we walked out of the airport terminal until we were guided up to our departure airline desk, Viking staff saw to every detail. Our cruise ...

We had previously sailed on the Rhine cruise and had an excellent experience. We are classical musicians and wanted to visit Prague, Vienna, and Salzburg. What was particularly impressive this time was the attention to detail and the way we were accompanied at transition points. Someone met us in Boston, Frankfurt, and Prague. In Budapest, someone stayed with us until we entered security. I use ...
