The main reason my wife and I took this cruise was to see the Passion Play in Oberammergau. However, Viking showed themselves to be a first-class river cruise company all the way. We had elected to come to Rome two weeks before the cruise started, so our independent travel ended when we walked into the Hilton-Munich Park Hotel. From that minute until Viking's representatives put us in front of ...

After a previous Viking River Cruise experience in the south of France, we were confident that Viking would provide a good way to see many of central Europe's sites. We boarded the ship in Budapest and the following day had a bus tour of the city and a walking tour of the castle. This followed a number of other stops along the river (see Viking's itinerary for the cruise) . Our favorite ...

We chose Viking as having travelled with them before, we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. We had every confidence that the 'Covid management' was under control, and we felt perfectly 'safe'. The ship was beautifully maintained, the staff always friendly, helpful and cheerful. The food was excellent, a good variety and always some locally themed dishes. Before the evening meal ...

Everything about this cruise was amazing, including the pre- and post- extensions in Prague and Budapest respectively. The crew was wonderful. They took care of our every need and provided those small touches and crater comforts that you just don't see much any more. Deborah, our cruise program director, was fantastic. She dealt with every personal request with grace and humor. The tour ...

We chose this cruise for the countries we would visit and it did not disappoint. The scenery was beautiful both on the river and on the shore excursions. Our guides on shore were very knowledgeable and entertaining. The crew on the ship were friendly, helpful and always very courteous. There are not sufficient superlatives to describe the crew members. Every single one of them to a person ...

I love the educational aspects of our journey, and we thought Irina in Prague was the most knowledgable tour guide we have ever had the pleasure of following. The chance to ...

My husband and I did not arrive early enough to explore Budapest. I had been there twice before and he didn't get off work early. The airport pickup, embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth and on time. I didn't realize the ship departed on the 13th while we toured and had arranged to meet a friend who lives in town after lunch but had to cancel that. Now to be clear, we've sailed on 15 ...

We had heard good things about Viking and decided one of the Danube cruises would be a great place for this type of cruise. It exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the excursions and appreciated that so many were included in the trip. The tour guides were outstanding. The food was wonderful and we liked the regional options at various locations along the way. Having beer/wine included with ...

My wife and I have always wanted to take a river cruise, and we have always heard that Viking was the best, but this cruise exceeded everything we had heard as well as exceeding our expectations. We went on this cruise with my sister and her husband. All the crew were very friendly, but I will forever remember the wonderful cruise director and our excellent waiter Atilla. After a couple of ...
