Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

This cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest explored many different cities and countries over 15 days. In every port excellent tours were included and many others available. Special mention to the Activities Director Rob who was fantastic!

Beautiful ship, excellent food with perfect service.

This was our 2nd Viking River Cruise and the experiences in both were excellent.

The pickup at Amsterdam went smoothly and several of us had a very early morning flight(6:30 AM) from Budapest at the end. They had a breakfast for us at a very early hour and when we arrived at the Airport they had staff to direct us and even check us in for our flights.

The meals offered excellent variety and quality whether for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.

The complimentary wine and beer at Lunch and Dinner were also very good and did not feel shortchanged at all.

I heartily endorse Viking for River Cruises and I am anxious to try one of their Ocean Cruises.

Did both included and optional tours(Art and Architecture Tour - excellent guide).


Walking tour of this Medieval City was quite interesting. Old Town Hall, 12th Century Bridge and the Cathedral all worth visiting.


Walking tour and Organ Concert at St. Stephen's Cathedral were exceptional.


Visit to Melk Abbey worth the time. An enjoyable experience.

Wine Tasting

Wachau Valley Winery Tour was interesting and very generous wine tastings offered.
