This was an early November cruise and the temps were terrific at the start and got cooler as we headed north. It was fun to enjoy some of the Christmas markets that had already opened. Make sure to enjoy the Gluhwein. It is wonderful!
Right from the beginning the crew made you feel welcome and cared for. We arrived early in the day and had our room within a half hour. The food was really good at every meal. We met some wonderful people and have stayed connected with a few couples and plan to cruise with them in the future.
This was my first Viking River cruise and it will not be the last. Everything was great and I cannot add anything that would have made it better.
We added our own AirBnB at the beginning and end of the tour - Loved the extra time in Budapest, enjoyed touring Buda & Pest and taking in the baths. We purchased a Budapest card and travelled everywhere on public transit. We also enjoyed Nurmberg and a day trip to Rothenburg with a few extended days afterward - we added a hotel right near the walled city - Holiday Inn Express. Perfect Location..
The cabin was perfect. I loved that you could open the door to enjoy the sites as well as to have fresh air for sleeping.
