Christmas Markets

We were scared trip was going to be a bus tour not a river tour, ALMOST cancelled, but figured we would make the best of it, all the reviews were terrible but we had been on two other trips with Viking and figured what the heck!! Boy, are we ever glad to have gone, we were first ship in 6 months to make it all the way down the Danube, the Christmas markets made the trip a whole new experience and we were kinda expecting things to be sub-par, but Viking has been great on our two Grand European tours, and they did not disappoint!! Trip was fabulous!! I was not impressed with the concert in Vienna, we had gone the other two trips and it keeps getting smaller and not worth it, and that’s a shame because the first trip was a great experience, and really last year was also, but this was a joke!!! But really that’s the only thing we can find fault in our trip!! Don’t buy into to the people that can never be made happy, Viking is great!!

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin AA

Cabin was a little smaller than on newer ships, only 2 drawers (really) in a suite, but trips on other ships in the suites are great!!!

Port Reviews


Nuremberg is great, we have booked Viator personal tours of WW2 sights and general, was great!


The Turn and Taxi Christmas market was the best of the whole trip!!
