We just returned from a viking river cruise on Nov 9 2018. It was a huge disappointment from start to finish. Yes, we knew about the low water levels. But what we didn't expect was the poor way Viking handled the situation. We had 3 different ships on this trip. yes 3, which means we had to pack and unpack for each ship. We lost almost the whole day in Budapes t because of a lengthy bus ride. In fact, we spent more time on a bus than on the boat during the day. We never saw the Wachau Valley,it was totally dark and impossible to see anything by the time we actually left. We were misinformed, lied to, and kept in the dark about what was going on with the itinerary. The tour guides did not tell us accurate information about events in the towns we did get to go to. The food was OK . We were on a Holland America cruise in May and the food was much better. This washer first River Cruise.We have been on 8 other ocean cruises. This was by far the worst cruise experience that we have ever encountered. I would look at other lines and not make Viking your first choice. I did read other reviews like this before I left and thought to myself, really how bad can it be? Well I am here to tell you it was that bad. We felt cheated and taken advantage of by Viking

Our guide was the best one we had on the trip. City was beautiful

Regensburg

Very cool city, everything was closed though, we were there on a Sunday. Viking did not tell us this before we left. Found a great tour on our own that was not recommended by Viking

Passau

Great city to explore, not enough time here due to long bus ride
