Several friends took this same cruise on the Romantic Danube months before; they just raved about how great it was; that we just had to go. So glad we did! We heeded their great advice of arriving a day early and staying over an extra night! How relaxing! In addition to all of the cruise members performing outstanding, Oliver, our cruise director, went way above and beyond to each and every guests. His last night entertaining performance was way above the top of the entertainment bar! Whatever Viking cruise lines is paying him now; his salary should be doubled! All of the knowledgeable local tour guides provided excellent, insightful, very personal glimpses of each port we were in. The ear pieces, after touching the "lollipop" to activate, was a great idea! The nightly dual food menu options were great. Especially when the Chef offered local cuisine he purchased during our port stay. We always welcomed and generally went with what our waiter, Bob, recommended.

Viking exceeded all of our expectations!

Cabin Review

Veranda Superior
Cabin A 311
This roomy, spacious cabin, with private veranda with deck chairs, was very comfortable.
The one most pleasant surprise we discovered on our own which our friends didn't share with us is the incredible shower head water pressure! Unprepared the first time, it just about knocked us off our feet! Wow! What a insane pleasure!
