We chose this cruise because of the location- Prague to Budapest- and because 3 couples from different areas of US wanted to experience a trip together. Our hotels were located near sites and public transportation. There was a long and then rushed bus ride from Prague to Passat but then we boarded and the adventure continued! Wait staff was first rate- always ready to meet our needs. The cruise through Wachau Valley and the locks was amazing. The food was outstanding-and varied. The wines were excellent and varied. Beer list was lacking but our hubby are Craft beer drinkers. Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen/ esp Parliament at night! We did a night cruise just to enjoy at night. Hotel in Budapest had views of Palace lights at night. A Viking agent transported us to airport- another agent met us at the curb and walked us through check in and to security. I’ve already booked my next Viking cruise.

Cabin Review

Small but the ship is small. Plenty of storage.

Port Reviews


Hotel location had access to public transportation. Views from our riverfront room were awesome. Viking desk in hotel to help with any questions . City has beautiful architecture and amazing views. Take Tuk Tuk tour to see all sites


One day is not enough time to see all parts of city and culture
