  3. Viking Mimir
We chose the longest cruise to make the most of the fact that we were already there, plus we chose the 3 day extension on both ends...3 days prior in Amsterdam and 3 days post cruise in Budapest. Best thing we could have done! I had done extensive research before we went so we knew just what we wanted to do in Amsterdam and also in Budapest. All the 15 or so excursions in each city we visited were included in the price of the cruise. A bus picked us up at the Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam and took us right to where the Viking Mimir was docked. We were thrilled at the sight of this beautiful, sleek, longship. We boarded and everything from the moment we stepped onto the ship until the very moment we stepped off the ship, went as smoothly as possible. Far above our expectations! The crew is courteous, really on the ball, attends to your every possible whim and foresees possible problems before they arise, such as handing out red Viking umbrellas on rainy mornings along with a water bottle. Upon returning to the ship, they are right there to take your umbrella and give you a warm lemon-flavored white cloth to refresh yourself. Caitlyn, our Program Director was most efficient, personable and just plain nice.The included excursions were interesting with relatively good guides with groups of about 20 people. The dining experience was great...wonderful food, great breakfasts, and great waiters. K'senjia was the Maitre'd and always greeted you with a smile. The Captain managed to get us through even when the river levels were low and it all went as planned with no changing of ships, for which we were all grateful! I would highly recommend a Viking River cruise to anyone who wants a truly serene, relaxing and peaceful vacation, filled with the most gorgeous scenery, along with narration by our Program Director, with first class service all the way. We just loved every minute!

A first class beyond Amazing trip of a lifetime with a wonderful crew on Mimir!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 319
The cabin was spacious with every nook and cranny used to capacity in a good way...plenty of closet space and drawers, a refrigerator, a safe for security. The bathroom and shower was perfect and our Cabin person, Albert, always magically knew when we had left the room and it was always neat and clean when we returned.
