Mixed views and unlikely to use Viking again

Myself and friend booked this holiday over a year in advance and was looking forward to this for a long time so I can't help feeling then that the holiday itself was very anti-climactic. We opted for getting the ...

Cruising easy

First river cruise- Easy on and off ship. We were let out right on the edge (or sometimes the middle) of a historic town. Amsterdam was incredible and the hotel was centrally located. Our cruise director ( Anna) ...

The Grand Grand European Cruise

We wanted to see all stops between Amsterdam and Budapest. We figured the best way to get a snap shot was to take the 15 day river cruise. A very polished crew, exquisite food, and cabins comfortable although ...

Delights of the Danube

We had never done a river cruise and had heard from others that Viking was a good choice. We loved the smaller scale of being on a river cruise and the staff to cruisers ratio. The meals on board were so well done ...

Really enjoyed the Fall colours along the river!

This was our second Viking River cruise (our first was only 7 days as an introduction to see if we would enjoy and if my husband who has mobility issues could manage). He managed very well, in fact we've booked ...
