Sail Date: Apr 2018
Cabin: Explorer Suite

We lived in Germany several years ago and had traveled to many places, but we had not traveled to Eastern European locations. Budapest was wonderful, so pretty, all lit up at night. We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel until we boarded our Ship on Sunday. Viking had an overall tour of the city and we also had free time to explore.

Right here I have to say that Viking does a great job with advertising. But when the rubber meets the road, you are being herded into buses on all your little side trips with 44 other people. That part of the trip got old very quickly for me and was just a reminder of the sardine-can airline trip over to Budapest that we endured. I don't know what I was expecting, but I guess I was thinking we'd be all going in different directions in small vans and that it would be a bit more personal.

The food and the staff were both excellent. The service and the room were wonderful. Even the internet connections were pretty good. No complaints. A small Ship allows people more opportunities to get to know each other and that part of it we loved. We met some great folks.
