Family Christmas cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest....what a wonderful way to experience the best Christmas Markets in all of Europe. A must for any family wanting to share and create Holiday memories. The Christmas markets are an absolute must, with handmade goods including Christmas ornaments and souvenirs, local foods, mulled wine and great beers. Add in the local history and culture of each destination and it creates unbelievable memories. River locks along the Danube are also a fun and interesting experience as you travel along the river watching the scenery. Viking does it better than anyone! Great cabin accommodations, shore excursions that are included, enjoyable and fun, fabulous service and staff, nice dining and drink options and a great way to see and experience Europe. The ships are comfortable, modern and beautiful. Very relaxed cruising, with no pretentious atmosphere. This was our second Christmas cruise with Viking and we look forward to traveling more with Viking in the future!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 309
Modern, clean and comfortable. During summer months I can see and appreciate having the balcony. As this was my second Christmas cruise, I found that the balcony is used very little due to the colder weather and not necessary. I would opt for the Veranda Suite next time, for the extra space. But also find that you spend very little time in your cabin while cruising.
