We had two nights in a hotel in Budapest before going to the ship which was very good although the hotel was very busy especially at breakfast. The Viking staff was very helpful at the hotel.
This was our fifth Viking River Cruise and one of the best. The crew were extremely friendly, like a big happy family. The cabin was comfortable and very clean, our steward was always very polite.
The dining room crew were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. My husband is lactose intolerant and there was always milk available for him. Something we have trouble to get on other holidays and hotels. We were even given milk to have in our cabin to sue when making hot drinks from the landing. The cookies were great too!!
The cruise Director was informative and helpful. Some of the trips were a bit rushed especially in Vienna and the evening entertainment was nothing special on board.
We have enjoyed all our Viking River Cruises but thought this one was the best. It was such a happy ship and the crew provided an excellent service. We have already booked to go on the Douro next year.
Very clean and plenty of cupboard space. Do find the ensuite facilities a bit small especially as my husband is over six foot tall. Also do not like the shower curtains. Otherwise, very comfortable and lovely to have a fridge too.
