Viking Gefjon Cruise Review by Patrick71
- Sail Date: July 2015
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Veranda Suite
We were in Europe for a month+ and the Viking Cruise was for only a part of our time in Europe. Because we had a rental car waiting in Amsterdam it seemed to throw the disembarkation system a loop. Oh well.
Crew Members were very excellent. On a par or superior to Disney Crew Members. Rooms were spacious considering the ship's size requirements. Food service was very good. We enjoyed the walking tour guides suggestions of where eat like a local. Dinner meals took a long time 2 1/2 to 3 hours. So we ate on the bow with the limited menu or in our room with items purchased ashore.
We enjoyed the pre dinner lecture or talks. The pre view of the next days stop & tours was nice.
Really enjoyed being able to visit the Bridge of the ship to observe and learn how the ship was being handled.
We will book again with Viking next season. As well as recommended Viking to our Friends.
We enjoyed Budapest very much. In fact we are planning on returning there next year. Budapest is a beautiful city with warm heart. Although it does not have the art and beauty of Paris we found it to be as interesting and diverse.

Loved the balcony. We recommend to anyone going on Viking to pay the cost for a balcony. It was so pleasant to sit on the balcony as we cruised the rivers watching the country side glide by. Room for 2 of us to sit comfortably.

Belvedere Palace & MuseumReally nice to see some sights we have not seen n prior visits. Took the Cook's tour of the Market. This was really great as our Chef accompanied us and explained the various facets of the local produce and cheeses.View All 26 Belvedere Palace & Museum Reviews
Did the mini opera show. Lovely and short enough not to be overwhelmed. Building lacked much in way of AC or ventilation but not the fault of Viking. Would go again.
