Awaiting for the Vienna Residence Orchestra too perform Mozart and Strauss.

Local entertainment in the lounge.

We had been considering a river cruise for several years and after quite a bit of research and talking with others that had been on Viking Cruises previously, some multiple times, we decided that Viking was definitely the right choice for us. We took advantage of the 2 for 1 pricing and a great deal on airfare.

We selected the 7 Night Danube Waltz Cruise with two extra nights at the beginning, in Budapest, and were not disappointed at all. The excursions, both those that were included in the price, and the optional ones, were very well organized and had knowledgeable guides to make the excursions enjoyable and informative. Evenings on board the Hermod was was a wonderful blend of entertainment, fine dining, and information relating to the cruise and the regions that we were traveling through. The evening meals always presented us with the opportunity to try the local cuisine and I certainly am not one to shy away from new and different kinds of food choices.

The staff and crew of the Hermod made us feel as if we were the only onboard especially in the lounge and the dining room.

Veranda Stateroom

I was very pleased with our stateroom. The stateroom was well maintained during our stay on the Hermod. Furnishings were very comfortable and more than adequate.
