Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Explorer Suite

There were three primary reasons we took this cruise. The first was the outstanding reputation of Viking Cruises. We talked with a number of well-seasoned cruise travelers who all said Viking was the best. The second was the fact that the Viking Long Boats only had 190 guests. Neither my wife nor I would ever want to do a cruise with thousands of guests. The third was the itinerary of the Romantic Danube cruise.

We both were very impressed with the planning and professionalism prior to our departure. The easy access resources through the Viking web page, getting information about the optional activities, the helpfulness and professionalism every time we called or had a question. The preparation part could not have been easier.

We actually added three days in Prague prior to the cruise as well as two nights in Budapest at the end. Everything, the pre and post stays and the cruise itself were beyond belief. Magical even in many ways. In fact, our room was upgraded to the Explore Suite, which was simply wonderful. The food, the wait staff, the management, the guides could not have been more knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Our first night on the cruise as the waiter is describing the evening's specials I told him I couldn't decide between two of them. His response - "get both of them."

Cabin Review

Explorer Suite

The Explorer Suite was beautiful and espansive. The views just outstanding. The only issue we had that a times at night we felt the vibration from what we think was the engines.
