  3. Viking Egil
We had heard some positive reports about Viking - Had never done a river cruise before (although we have done several ocean cruises) We were excited to cruise the beautiful Danube and see the country - However, we spent very little time on the river - spent 3 days on canals, more than a day total on locks, and docked in only 2 cities - which required us to take bus rides (on their schedule - some up to 90 min to 2 hours) to get to the port cities we wanted to see. The worst part was having to change boats half way through the trip - a plan to which we were not notified until we were on the cruise. Worst of all - when we got on the second ship, we found belongings of the previous cabin occupants in the bed! Gross! After making us pack up and change ships, we weren't even put in cabins with clean sheets!! TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE - as well as disgusting and unsanitary.

The area was beautiful - but we saw very little of it and docked in only 2 cities

Gross! After making us pack up and change ships, we weren't even put in cabins with clean sheets!!

TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE - as well as disgusting and unsanitary.
