Viking Bragi Cruise Review by baldridge

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2015
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

Six of us celebrated a 50th anniversary by taking the Viking River cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest leaving Amsterdam on July 11, 2015

Wonderful cruise, on the Bagri. Program Director Alex was the most informative, hard working individual I know. Daily excursions were well planed, informative, and interesting with great English speaking guides. Meals were wonderful with great variety. Staterooms are well planned with nothing left to want. Daily excursions are a great reason to go on the Viking Grand European cruise.

When the Danube was closed to traffic for approximately 150 miles, Viking accommodated all passengers with a coach trip around the closure and a swap to a sister ship (the Skadi) in Passau. We never missed any city stop. In fact in Nuremberg we had lunch in a German restaurant which was a great experience. Viking made our swap very easy and accommodated us in other ways. Walking tours were designed with all walking abilities accommodated from fast walkers to those with more challenging walking speeds.

Razil and Niko (in the dining room) on the Bragi were exceptional individuals who we were sad to leave after the one week. All staff were wonderful on both ships.

Arriving in Budapest at night was incredible, bridges and building all lit up. What a way to end a fantastic holiday.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 202

Well planned with nothing more a person could want. Both European and North American electrical voltage and outlets were available. Housekeeping staff did a great job. Loved the French Balcony. Waking up in the morning, opening the curtains to a wonderful view was a real treat. Free Wifi wa a great way to keep in touch with family and friends.
