WOW.......We've been "LOOKING" at a Viking River Cruise for YEARS, but never pulled the "TRIGGER" because of the PRICE!!

SO.......2 First Cousins and their spouses and my wife and I talked about doing this together and we even had 3 meetings to discuss this Grand European River Boat Cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest in the summer of 2015.

Well on June 2nd, 2016, this "DREAM" became a REALITY for ALL of us.

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Cabin D

Our cabin size was adequate, but a little larger would have been better.

Everything was Clean...nice looking.....and the beds were comfortable too.

Loved the FREE Bottled water everyday also.
