Viking Baldur Cruise Review by llogin

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2016
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

We started in Budapest on the Baldur, but did not do an early arrival. We had 2 days to explore that wonderful city. The embarkation was smooth an easy, with staff meeting us at the airport and moving our luggage to our rooms.

The ship was comfortable and the room small but adequate. The veranda rooms were quite a bit larger and would have been nice, but were sold out by the time we booked our cruise.

The food was excellent and the portions were just right so that weight gain was not a problem. We had dessert for every meal but in a nice small portion. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. They quickly knew us and what we liked.

Most of the entertainment was off the ship but the program director, Marek, was fantastic and the evening programs that he did were most informative Several nights we had outside musical groups that were excellent.

The tours each day were well planned and gave a great overview of the cities. Each day there was an included tour to provide overview and then there were some extras that were excellent. We enjoyed the Vienna concert, the Cologne Pub crawl, and the Moselle Wine tour.

This boat was mostly older adults and thus quite quiet. The river was smooth so there was no rocking of the boat. We would definitely do this kind of tour again!!

Next time I would choose a veranda cabin because they are significantly larger.
