Dinner time on the Viking Vilhjalm.
The ship as we exit to tour Vienna.
Český Krumlov was a delightful little town in Czechia we had never heard
Budapest lit up for embarkation.

This was our tenth cruise but first river cruise. This was far better than any cruise yet. It was so nice to have most services included in the costs. (excursions, air fare, drinks, wifi, water....) The ship was very new and it looked like it. The staff was very helpful. The food was excellent! Just a wonderful trip.

We started in Budapest. We had a few nights in a Hotel and then a couple of days on the shop (in Port). So we saw a lot of the city. We could have easily spent a few more days there.

The embarkation from Budapest was spectacular. The ship cruised up and down the Danube through the city several times. By the last time the sun had set and the town was completely lit up. It was beautiful. One of the best embarkations we're experienced.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin B

The cabin was a bit small but very efficiently designed. The King size bed was great! And we sat out on the balcony frequently. The (free) wifi was great, but the link went down a day or 2 at the end of the cruise.

Port Reviews

Bratislava

We did a bus tour through the city. Went to the castle and Old Town. Very nice. The town was very clean and the people were very welcoming.

Linz (Salzburg)

A wonderful little town. Magical!!
