This was my first travel experience outside of the United States; I had no expectations or prior experience. I knew not what to expect. From the time we landed at our destination city, Budapest, until we departed Prague, Viking handled every single detail without a flaw. We faced river challenges and transportation changes, and Viking was on top of everything and kept everyone on board informed. All along the trip we were guided and supported by knowledgeable and experienced Viking personnel, crew and tour guides. We took the Romantic Danube cruise and everything about it was five star and exceptional. The entire Atla crew was outstanding! Service, quality, attention to detail and timeliness was unmatched. The dining experience was five star every meal. We participated in included and optional tours all of which were conducted by guides with connections to the communities and places we toured. Their personal insights, experiences and historical knowledge and information was amazing and sometimes very emotionally moving. They enabled us to experience their history and culture and the realities of living in war torn and occupied eastern Europe. The history of the cities, the structures, their people and culture will be with us always. The intimacy of sailing on a long ship is exceptional because you are able to meet and learn from the crew and guests all along the trip. We cannot say enough positive about our trip and Viking Cruises. We will be returning for another Viking Long Ship cruise again.

Cabin Review

The veranda cabin we had was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations as to quality and comfort. To be able to enjoy views of the Danube and its scenic beauty, the many cities we passed and lock and dams we went through will always be remembered. Can not say enough good things about it all!
