Ship rooms comfortable and elegent. Ships food- top notch. Crew Service-exempliary. Above and beyond, near fanatical in ensuring you want for nothing that they can provide. All you need do on a Viking Cruise is sleep, get up and slog off to a tremendous breakfast selection. Then go back to your stateroom and get ready for the tours they will take you on, fully arranged of course. They ...

We too had a bad experience due to a broken lock. We shared the horrible port with 3 other Viking ships. Cement factory working through the night. Homeless family living under bridge. Not the picturesque view we imagined to have. We spent three days traveling by bus from boat at dock. Sunday, we traveled 20 minutes each way to see sites ofcity of Nuremberg. Then Monday, Nuremberg to ...

We had never done a river cruise before and were not dissatisfied with our choice. People are all friendly and helpful. Went to many beautiful places and enjoyed every minute on and off the boat. I would definitely encourage anyone thinking of a river cruise to think of Viking as their choice as they go above and beyond to please you. We planned most of the excursions before we departed for our ...

I did some research about what time of year to cruise to avoid low water issues that plagued 2018 cruising. Trying to find the balance between warm weather, plenty of water to curise and not the height of tourism season. May 2019 was chosen. We had the three day extension in Prague at the beginning. My poor husband got food poisoning on our last day there from a meal at our hotel. The ...

Flew straight to Budapest and directly on board ship. The whole experience was extremely pleasant and all members off staff faultless. Due to adverse weather conditions a lot of changes were made to individual itineraries, but they dealt with the whole problem with ease and smoothness. Our cabin was very nice, compact, but not cramped. The restaurant was very good, with a wide variety of ...

This was our second Viking cruise and we enjoyed ourselves the entire time, as was the case on our prior cruise. We cruised from Budapest to Nuremberg, and took a Prague Extension for 4 days. The crew was professional, courteous and thorough in all they did. The food was plentiful and delicious. The crew kept us on schedule the whole trip. We enjoyed all the excursions in the various towns and ...

We had been interested in a River cruise for a few years & Viking always was #1 on the list. The 8-day Romantic Danube was awesome. The ship, Egil, was wonderful. Loved our cabin w/balcony & the whole staff was friendly & answered any questions. Being able to sit anywhere in dining allowed you to meet & make new friends. The evening entertainment with the staff was funny & the pianist was there ...

For our first river cruise we chose the Romantic Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest. Our vessel was the Egil and it was the first cruise of the season for the crew. You would not have know in as the ship was so well run. The crew from top to bottom was excellent and took care of all our needs. The were so warm and friendly. The evening presentations were full of humor. Dining was very good with ...

A must for any family wanting to share and create Holiday memories. The Christmas markets are an absolute must, with handmade goods including Christmas ornaments and souvenirs, local foods, mulled wine and great beers. Add in the local history and culture of each ...

We booked this far in advance in order to see both the sights and the Christmas Markets. Viking did a great job keeping us informed about the low water levels and the workarounds (buses). But even after the “final” ship/bus itinerary was announced, we were fortunate to get enough last-minute rain (8 feel of water added to the river in 48 hours) that the original all-cruise itinerary could be ...
