Viking Egil Cruise Review by Sonney

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Explorer Suite

Many people recommended Viking.

Food choices poor. Gristle steak. no sweet wine so they added sugar vanilla ice cream with banana slices in it - ugh!

Don't take Heurigen Evening wine tasting - terrible.

Szentendre tour was to have open air museum but it was closed and they did not tell us but they sure charged us.

Changed Hotel as we had taken the two extended days in Budapest but did not tell us.

Had to get our own bags at hotel.

Don't take room 101 you are right under the desk and entrance to boat. People left boat at 3 am and rolled luggage over our heads. We had that room as it was the last one available when we signed up.

Don't pay for a balcony as Viking double docks and triple docks ships so you can't use your balcony and not be about 3 feet from the ship parked next to you. Nice.

Program Director gave so much info so fast on disembarkation. Why? Seniors on board. Print it out and hand it out so we have it in front of us. Poor planning.

Viking Cancelled the Open Air Museum and did not tell us, nor give us an option to not go or to refund money. Nice

Wine Tasting

Wine was terrible. Did not tell us the name of the variety, bottles had no labels. $158 for the two of us for nothing. TERRIBLE
