Viking Pride Cruise Review by K&DCruiser
- Sail Date: September 2011
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with Large Window
We made stops at Kinderdijk, Netherlands, Cologne, Koblenz, Miltenberg, Wurzburg, Rothenberg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, all in Germany, then to Melk, Durnstein, and Vienna, Austria, then Bratislava, Slovakia, and finally to Budapest, Poland.
The food was not great but what I would call very good, and the accommodations, typical of any cruise weve been on, were small but clean. Every stop had a tour, some on a bus, then walking, some simply walking tours. We also had a number of optional excursions, one of them a fabulous trip to Rothenberg, a medieval city in Germany. Viking also had a number of enrichment programs on the ship, with talks on windmills, Germany, the European Union, and Vienna. There were also classical music and Hungarian folk performances, and a glass blowing demonstration on the ship.
Cruising the Rhine and Danube offered many incredible picture opportunities with simply breathtaking scenery.
We had a super time.highly recommended.

AmsterdamAmsterdam is a charming place...walking along the canals, having dinner in a cafe, a very interesting and wonderful place. Watch out for the bicycle riders, they have the right of way and will ride right over you to prove it! The coffee shops a a little interesting as well, have a your favorite latte and well, just go there and look at the menu. We definitely want to go back.View All 616 Amsterdam Cruise Port Reviews

BudapestWe arrived in Budapest at night, and it was simply an amazing experience. The buildings and bridges were all lit up in their splendour. A great photo opportunity. We did find many of the shop keepers to be a bit abrupt. Overall we found the city scenery very interesting.View All 280 Budapest Cruise Port Reviews
