Sail Date: Oct 2021

After many ocean cruises and one cruise on the Nile many years ago, my wife and I took the Grand European Tour from Amsterdam to Budapest to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We were lucky enough to go during a break in the pandemic restrictions and as a result, our originally scheduled ship was replaced by the Vidar and there were less than half the usual number of passengers on board. Everything was top notch: the ship itself, service, food, itinerary, excursions, guides, views and experiences. Our room was a French Balcony and while very nice, was a little small...no place to sit except on the bad. If we go again, we would upgrade to a full balcony room which actually is larger inside. We are looking forward to river cruising with Viking again. As advertized one of the main highlights was the dining experience. Food was a 4.5 out of 5, and the local food nights were excellent and well celebrated by the staff. The whole experience surprised us and exceeded our expectations.

Cabin Review

Well appointed. Comfortable. Small.
