  3. Viking Atla
Friends took one and recommended it.we celebrated our 50th and had never taken a cruise.everything was exceptional except for the fact that the water level had dropped and we had to be bussed to and from the boat and the next location for the last three days so we spent hours on the bus and were unable to enjoy the cruise down the danube for the last three days. if we had been told in advance that there was a probability or even a possibility then we probably would have rebooked for a different time. the trip was expensive and we were looking forward to the cruise down the danube and the various sites along the way.other than that glitch everything else was great. I think Viking did what they could to make the trip enjoyable under the circumstances. The accommodations were excellent as was the room service. The meals were great. The person in charge of activities, Mario,was there all the time and kept us informed and was great. The food was exceptional.i had a dietary restriction and the maitre d checked with me daily about the menu and was attentive. I never missed a meal and enjoyed every one. All of the shore excursions were done in small groups with headsets that made it easy to follow the guide. The guides that we had were exceptional. On our last night in nurenburg after a lengthy bus ride we were rewarded with a concert at the hotel by opera singers.finally, as we arrived at the nurenburg airport there was a Viking agent at the bus to guide us.i forgot to mention that on arrival at Budapest there were Viking agents to get us on the bus to our hotel.
