We chose a river cruise for our very first cruise experience because we did not want to travel with thousands of people on an ocean cruise. We added a pre-extentsion in Budapest to have additional time to explore Hungary (birthplace of my grandparents) and to adjust to the time difference and long flight. Connections to embarkation port and disembarkation went very smoothly. We felt safe and well cared for in the foreign airports, and all provided travel was very comfortable. We had a lower level cabin that suited us fine. All aspects of the ship- crew, service, ship, dining, entertainment, activities, and shore excursions were superb! We enjoyed the delicious local foods, and beverages; the wait staff was professional and friendly, providing the best personalized service. The concierge helped us with our many questions and and to plan additional activities we wanted to do. We don't know how Viking can do this any better. One day into the cruise we both agreed we will do this again!
Although the cabin was small, as you would expect for a lower priced stateroom, my husband and I had enough room to store our belongings as it was designed with efficient use of space, with 110V plug-ins, clothesline in shower, closet space, safe, TV with movies- everything you need. The beds were very comfortable and the cleaning service was awesome!

We enjoyed the walking tours provided at each port. It provided us with a wonderful introduction, then we would plan our own activity, often with the help of the ship's concierge, for the rest of the day.
Although it was raining, our guide was great and we saw many interesting aspects of Vienna.View All 183 Walking Tour Reviews
