ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!! GREATEST VACTION WE'VE EVER BEEN ON!!!!! From the moment we landed at the Budapest airport the Viking team was on the ball. You are welcomed on board the ship with a complimentary drink and escorted directly to our room and then enjoyed lunch. Throughout the entire trip one meal after the other was outstanding. All of our wait staff (Raul, Stan, and Mai) made every meal a great experience. Because of the wide variety and tastes of the soups at lunch I've become a soup eater back home. The Viking crew was always on the ball, they were organized and planned ahead for issues that happen on a River Cruise. Can't wait to do it again and YES it will be on Viking. Our tour director Dawn worked hard to make sure that our excursions went smoothly even though we high a problem with high river water which caused us to fall almost a full day behind on the cruise portion. Because of Vikings great service the arranged for slightly longer bus trips, etc. so that we did not miss one of the planned destinations. The Captain and crew worked hard to catch up once water levels reduced and our trip ended exactly as planned. Only suggestion I would make to anyone is to extend your trip at the end. We got to tour our embarkation city (Budapest) but only got to see Amsterdam on a bus going to the airport. By staying with the extension, you get to see both.

CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin F 104
Was originally concerned with being in the "basement" of the boat but once we got in to our room we were fine. If we ever get to do a trip again (on Viking) I have no issue with taking a "basement" room again.
