Vienna exceeded our expectations. Modern yet full of history. The city was obviously in love with music.

Eleven musicians sounded like 75 in this hall. After a short Mozart concert, we were offered a glass of champagne at intermission. They finished with Strauss. Included was some opera and ballet performances. Quite an entertainment bargain!

We left tour group because it was too slow and in a city that has such excellent art, we chose to pursue our own way.

National Holiday most places were closed. After the walking tour, there was little time to explore if you wanted to use the bus to return. We did a little souvenir shopping and took the subway back to the boat.

Who sends a cruise ship to Vienna which is CLOSED ON SUNDAYS? Seriously? We got to look around and eat, but no shopping.

So disappointed that the beautiful gardens were all cluttered with concert equipment.

Walking tour was slow, instead of having a shuttle at different times, you either have to rush back or pay your own way back to the boat. We took the subway but it proved difficult for elderly cruise goers, a long walk to the ship.

Tour guide was awful - we spent time in museum and saw amazing artwork - it was rushed- then practically ran through market areas - no time to shop or even look - wound up just going on our own again.

We found ourselves a bit disappointed with Vienna: it's very, very busy with traffic and hold ups everywhere. Some of the buildings are very beautiful - the Opera House for example. Emerald organises coach transfers to and from the ship to the city centre after lunch so it's possible to go back and take a longer look. Sadly, it was pouring with rain so we didn't bother.

Vienna was to be the highlight of our cruise, but Mother Nature had other plans. It poured down rain all day and all evening. Viking very nicely provided us with an umbrella, but the wind broke it as soon as we opened it up, so we had to follow our tour guide around while soaking wet. No one on the ship had fun, and all were disappointed. We did decide to attend a Viking-planned concert of Mozart and Strauss works in a palace ballroom. Like all Viennese musicians, the group was excellent. Read Less

Not really what we expected. This was in a small theatre performed for Viking cruise lines. Could have been performed on ship instead of traveling 45 minutes by bus through city???

Not fond of group tours consisting of too many tourists following an overwhelmed guide. Personal interests and priorities are usually not met.
