We took our first Viking Cruise on the Rhine '15; it was terrific, so we decided to go again and selected the Danube. Both were over American Thanksgiving. The plus of that is there are not a whole lot of tourists in the multiple cities and towns we visit; makes for a very nice experience. The minor downside is the lack of warmth and sunshine; simply packed accordingly! We had another wonderful trip and took advantage of an advanced discount on our next cruise, which we will select as soon as we can find the time. Why Viking? They provide a superior experience from booking to return home. Their cruise program is very well-planned as to timing and what is included. Staff is awesome, food is great and as locally sourced as possible, which is really wonderful; staterooms are great; everything about cruising with Viking is great! Having been in the tourism business for many years, I am pretty "picky" when it comes to having everything go perfectly. With Viking, everything goes perfectly and is great fun!

Super Service and Super Itinerary!

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D Not Sure
Cabins are naturally small(ish), but beds are cozy and very comfortable, excellent planning for storing stuff during the cruise, having AC electrical is a huge help, luggage slides under the bed, lots of drawers, closet space, in-room safe. Bathrooms are perfectly ample and heated floor is a delight. Superior shower fixtures make for very refreshing showers. Overall rating would be 10 of 10!
