My wife and I had taken the Viking Rhine River cruise last November and loved it. A river cruise had been on our bucket list for quite some time and when Viking offered free airfare it was too good a deal to pass up. So when they offered the Danube Waltz cruise with free airfare we jumped at the chance and invited my sister and niece to join us. Well if anything the experience was even better. Of course the river and stops and excursions were excellent with the most knowledgeable and friendly guides available. Transportation to and from the excursions was comfortable and well coordinated as were the airport pickups and drop offs. The food and drink onboard were varied and excellent, but what really made the trip special were the crew and staff on the Ingvi. They were attentive, friendly, and incredibly entertaining. Particularly at meal times they brought the guests together as if we all had been close friends for years. Kudos Viking and we are already planning next year’s trip.
