We would go again in a minute! We loved the Viking Egil & the extra special crew. They made our Danube Waltz Cruise a completely enjoyable experience. Viking met us at the Munich airport and from that time on their goal is for you to enjoy yourself! And we did! The food was superb with MANY choices! You could even eat healthy ! Every excursion was worthwhile. The guides used “whisperers” so you could hear everything they were saying. We visited the Vienna Boys Choir school,had a tour by 2 students, heard the choir perform and had a meet & greet after the performance! It was so much fun! We also liked the cruise director’s informational sessions before each day so we knew what was ahead the next day! Cruising the Danube is a wonderful experience! And sailing into Budapest at night is breathtaking! We highly recommend Viking and will hopefully go again soon! Read Less

Many people recommended Viking. Food choices poor. Gristle steak. no sweet wine so they added sugar vanilla ice cream with banana slices in it - ugh! Don't take Heurigen Evening wine tasting - terrible. Szentendre tour was to have open air museum but it was closed and they did not tell us but they sure charged us. Changed Hotel as we had taken the two extended days in Budapest but did not tell us. Had to get our own bags at hotel. Don't take room 101 you are right under the desk and entrance to boat. People left boat at 3 am and rolled luggage over our heads. We had that room as it was the last one available when we signed up. Don't pay for a balcony as Viking double docks and triple docks ships so you can't use your balcony and not be about 3 feet from the ship parked next to you. Nice. Program Director gave so much info so fast on disembarkation. Why? Seniors on board. Print it out and hand it out so we have it in front of us. Poor planning. Read Less

Friends of mine organized the trip and I jumped at the chance to go on a river cruise. I never wanted to go on an ocean cruise, but have seen many commercials on river cruises and they looked great. I was blown away by the ship, staff and tours we went on. We had the time of our lives! All the staff were really nice and helpful. The shore excursions were great and all the tour guides were so knowledgeable about history and everything to do with the area we were visiting. The food on the ship was awesome, cooked to perfection. When we were picked up or dropped off at the airports, there was a Viking employee to help us get to where we were going and answer any questions, which I needed because I don't travel very often. I can't say enough about this cruise, I recommend it to everyone. Read Less

We wanted to do something Special for our 45th Anniversary! We have had our eye on a River Cruise, so Viking commercials got our wonder going. We chose the Danube Cruise mostly because we wanted to see the sights of Europe. We chose wisely, the ship Egil was just the right size. Embarkation was smooth from the airport to our port in Passau. There was always someone there to make us feel we were in the right place. Boarding the ship was easy, inviting, clean and exciting. Our cabin was beautiful & all the comforts of home with a beautiful view off our room. Dining was easy, we sat where we liked and met new friends that we ended up chumming around with! Our waiter was pleasant, funny and took care of our wants & needs. The food was delicious, got to try new things! Always such a variety, and to have a glass or two of wine with lunch & dinner was a plus! Entertainment was just alright, nothing elaborate. Cabin Service was okay, we were missed the first day and had to ask if there was daily service....(our gal was stationed on the bottom floor and we were on the top floor, so we didn't see much of her) We REALLY enjoyed having an Included Port Excursion in EVERY Port. Beautiful countryside to walk around in and we took great advantage of our time off the ship. All in All it was a Wonderful Cruise!! Read Less
