Booked this river cruise because friends invited us to join them. From our arrival in Amsterdam to our departure 2 weeks later, in Budapest, everything went perfectly. Included tours were just the right length and very informative. We especially liked the tour guide communication earphones, which made it easy to hear and follow the guides narration.
Meals were outstanding and the service was the best. Dinners were wonderful with great choices every night. One of the optional tours, a visit to the Royal Lipizzan Stallions, was one of the outstanding parts of our cruise. Castle and Cathedrals were an every day experience and were outstanding.
Viking's policy of no children was very appealing to us. We didn't want the distraction of children in the dining room, buses or tours. Our cabin was very nice - comfortable bed - adequate storage - nice bath and shower. The housekeeping staff was top notch.
If I could find anything that I had a problem it was the WiFi. When it worked it was okay but very slow. The other problem we had was with one guide ( not Vikings fault) he was awful. We mentioned it to viking and were told others had also complained and they were dealing with it.
We are already planning our next river cruise with Viking for 2020.
As cruise ship cabins go our cabin was very good. There was an in room safe in the room. The bed was very comfortable, closet space was good and there was plenty of room under the bed for suitcases and packages. The bathroom was very efficient. The shower was large and shower head and water pressure were great.
Housekeeping staff was very attentive. Our room was always made up while we were at breakfast and freshened up a couple of times a day.
Amenities in the bath were first class and towels were large and plush.
Explored on our own
Wonderful guide - beautiful city. We were there about 6pm so most shops were closed. Would liked to have had a memento of the town.
