Danube was beatiful, just not enough of it
"We had a great river cruise on the Rhine a few years ago, decided to do the Budapest-Regensburg Danube cruise.The food seemed even a step above the good last river cruise, and was incredible!..."Read More

Everyone told me that Viking was the best. I decided on this particular cruise because of the Christmas market aspect. From our departure to our arrival on the boat, Viking make every step easy. My daughter was traveling with me, so we had requested two single beds, which we got. The room was small, be very well designed. I was especially impressed with the shower, because I am a large person. The ...

Everyone who told me about Viking river cruises had nothing but praise for Viking. They were right. Viking was attentive to every detail. I never felt adrift. The accommodations were excellent. The food was way beyond expectations. The excursions were first class. Everyone in the crew treated me with respect, professionalism, good humor, and kindness. I knew I was in good hands when someone from ...

I chose this cruise because of my desire to visit the Christmas Markets along the Danube. My friend and I booked about two years out, in the middle of COVID to have something to look forward to as we got through those long months. I had heard wonderful things about Viking but our experience was not as wonderful as I had hoped, beginning with the airfare that we included in our reservation. ...

We’ve been wanting to do a Christmas Market tour and the timing suited us. The other couples we met on the cruise, the pairing of dinners with the ports, the guided tours, etc were all great. Our favorite was the Beer Fest out of Passau. The markets are so European and less commercial than in the US. . The entire staff was so attentive and our Cruise Director, Igor, was the best we’ve ever ...

We are from Florida and had a long flight. I am handicapped and brought a walker to assist me in walking for long periods. I am terrified of steps due to balance and vertigo issues. The flight we were on did not let us off at the terminal and we were required to disembark with the steps. Anyway we were 2 hours late for our other flight and Lufftanza finally got us to Budapest. We had to get a ...

We booked this trip on 2019 but due to the pandemic we cruised in 2022. It was our first cruise of any kind. From start to finish including our pre and post cruise extensions Viking took care of every detail. While actually on the boat the staterooms were clean and comfortable. The crew was professional friendly and courteous. The excursions were reasonably priced and interesting and entertaining. ...

We had the misfortune of 2 trips being canceled due to COVID-19 but we're extremely pleased to end up on this trip. The Passion Play in Oberammergau was everything we expected. In spite of rainy days and cool temperatures the tours were great. Each guide provided a unique perspective on their location. We learned many interesting things about the ports. We did have trouble finding time to ...

Passion Play was the main reason for this trip. We booked the flight in 2020 and then had to let the reservation (money) stay with Viking. Originally we booked with business class upgrade and expected it to be entirely seated in business like it has been on previous trips. When Viking booked the outbound flight from Austin to Washington, we were placed in coach class. We checked with ...

This was our first riverboat cruise. We chose to travel with Viking because they have itineraries we like and good friends have been in several trips with Viking and have raved about it. Our trip exceeded our expectations in so many ways. We booked the pre excursion to Budapest, staying in he Hilton across the Danube from the cruise docks. It was a fabulous location because it was directly ...

The staff, cleanliness, food was excellent but keep in mind a few things: - We had a room with balcony but 3 out of 8 nights another ship was blocking the view. Viking parks the ships side by side thus saving on paying docking fees but totally messing up your experience - On our itinerary we had to dock in Passau for one night but they changed plans and took us back to Austria to some small ...
