The Christmas Cruise on the Danube was probably the most incredible cruise I have ever taken. The all inclusive nature of the cruise, the marvelous land tours, and all this coupled with the natural beauty of the cities visited made the experience one that I will never forget.

Kudos to everyone at Viking, from the reservation specialists to the crew aboard the boat. they were totally knowledgeable, professional, and helpful every step of the journey.

The food was exceptional, especially to be noted are the "local" favorites served as we entered each port of call. The wines, especially the regional varieties were superb, and the service in the dining room was always excellent. there was nothing that they couldn't and wouldn't do to make every meal a memorable dining experience.

The land tours were totally and expertly prepared and designed for every one of the passengers. The guides were each a fountain of knowledge, with considerable expertise about every place that we visited. The churches were spectacular and the architecture was a perfect example of the history of architecture through the centuries. And when we were back on board, the views as we cruised down the Danube were wonderful. the shores are lined with some of the most beautiful sights you could ever hope to see from the deck of your ship.

In conclusion, the viking river Cruise on the Danube is an experience that I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience. If I could give advice to the readers of this review, it would be to plan your king cruise as soon as you can.
