Enjoying ourselves with the Captain Yurly!
Love German themed dinner and the staff were all dressed up!
Our server Julie was the sweetest!
Time for some German beer!
Our Program Director Oliver never looked so great!

We selected this cruise for the destinations and for the small river cruise experience. It was fantastic! We started our cruise in Budapest....sailed along the Danube to Vienna, Krems, Passau, Regensburg, ending in Nuremberg. There was so much history along the way to learn and to share with others following each excursion. The crew was so friendly and very accommodating. We upgraded to a veranda suite -- it was great! The ship was spotless and well maintained. We did explore Budapest for two days prior to embarking on our cruise. Friends have asked if we'd go on another river cruise -- without a doubt! We were treated royally from the start to the end of our trip. We had a little glitch regarding our return travel arrangements, but Viking resolved our issues accordingly. We are happy to say we met a wonderful couple on our river cruise that we are now planning to take a ocean cruise with them next summer.....can't wait!
