Sailed on the Viking Lofn out of Budapest on July 13, 2015. Wonderful new ship, friendly crew, knowledgeable tour guides and great techy earphones to hear guides. No need to miss anything if you aren't directly behind the guide. Viking personnel where waiting at the airport to pick us up and we went directly to the ship for a lovely bunch. We mostly ate in the dinning room and met new fellow travelers every day. Two concerns I have: this is not a cruise for newlyweds - and I felt bad for the couple on our ship - unless you like traveling with your parents/grandparent/great-grandparents. This is also not the cruise for folks needing walkers - yes, there were 3 or 4! They did their best to get in/out of some of the bus trips, but forget trying to push a walker on cobblestones! These dear people waited too long for this trip or choose the wrong venue.

Loved the local entertainment on featured nights - glass blower, folk dancing/singing, classical music with comedy, a well as guest singing participation and dancing (are we really still doing YMCA?!). Had to disembark half way through do to low water and change to our sister ship the Vidar to complete the cruise to Amsterdam. No problem, didn't miss anything, handled well, 3 hour bus trip wasn't a burden. Great trip and we highly recommend it!

Cabin Review

French Balcony

King bed, tight around the corners, but not atypical for a cabin. Plenty of storage space, efficient bathroom.
