We were told that we would not be sailing from Amsterdam due to a congested harbor, we sailed from Rotterdam. We were met at the airport by a very nice young man from Viking and put aboard a bus to Rotterdam. We were the only ones on the bus. This change was no problem. We were also told several days ahead that the water level on the Danube was low, not the fault of Viking and we might have to change boats with a Viking boat that could not get down river. This we did and our tour director came with us. We packed before a shore trip and our bags were in our room on the new boat when we arrived. Viking even went so far as to give us the same room number, do not remember the name of the new boat The same problem faced us below Budapest so Viking took us to Budapest on a tour bus.To make up for the inconvence we were taken to lunch at the four star Gundel Restaurant . The food was out of this world and the chocolate crape, WOW. Viking did every thing they could to make our trip great. The service on the boats was great and also the food. We learned to make a strudel on the second boat. I have made it twice sense we have been home. All in all we had a great time and could not have been more pleased. All the shore trips we took were fun and we learned a great deal about that part of the world. I am a WW2 student and the WW2 trip to Nuremberg to the Zepplin field and the Court House where the War Trials took place, took care of two items on my bucket list. The highlight of the trip was the concert in Vienna. This was another item off my bucket list to hear the BLUE DANUBE WALTZ played in Vienna. You need to schedule 2 days there please. Great trip. Ready to schedule our third one. Read Less

We were supposed to board at Amsterdam to Budapest and instead we ended in Rotterdam because of some tall ships celebration at Amsterdam. We were not aware of the low river water level until we arrived and boarded a sister ship instead. We were told half way of the cruise we would meet up with our original ship where we would be transferred into. The service and activities were excellent. The ports and shore excursions exceeded our expectation where some inconveniences such as unable to dock at certain port were bus there and compensated with extra activities. The dining and entertainment aboard the ship were excellent. Disembarkation at the final destination to the airport with transportation provided went real smooth. We had a great time on the cruise and enjoy every part of it plus the staff were the BEST ! Read Less
