My best friend and I chose this trip for a special 60th birthday cruise and a retirement present for myself. As first time cruisers of this type we thought an all inclusive escorted cruise was the way to go and it certainly was. The ship was clean and the crew were all welcoming and pleasant. Our cabin was relaxing and the floor to ceiling window was so nice to see all the scenery we were passing going down the river. The dining was amazing, our plan was to have eggs benedict every morning and creme brulee every night, the food was so fresh and some of the best I've ever had. Not one thing was near sub-par. The chef highlighted and explained the regional specialties and even gave us a tour of the kitchen. The mid ship coffee-cookie station was a favorite spot, every night Raquel would put out "good-night" oatmeal cookies and macaroons plus chocolate chip cookies were available all day with all varieties of teas and coffees. The library was a quiet place at the back of the ship to sit and relax to take in the scenery. The shore excursions were well planned, I would of liked to have had more time to shop for souvenirs. The tour buses were very comfortable, what a great way to sight-see on the way to the excursions. I would definitely go again and am thinking about an ocean cruise with Viking based on the river cruise experience. Going into Budapest at night with the well lit buildings and bridges was a sight I'll never forget.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin A 325
Cabin was nice and clean, plenty of room for storage. It was nice to come back from each days excursion to find the cabin clean and fresh bottled water set out.
