We ,brother and sisters decided to spend Thanksgiving together something we had not done since we were children. We loved the beautiful sites, Nuremberg, Vienna ,Budapest, and shopping the Christmas Markets. The special touches provided by the staff were appreciated. Each morning the ship staff would greet us , handed us each a bottle of water and an umbrella if needed as we departed for the day's included excursions. When we returned, a ship staff person would welcome us back and serve us a treat which was representative of the area. The lectures were interesting and the entertainment was enjoyable. We had a great American Thanksgiving dinner. All the food, breakfast, lunch and dinner,was delicious. Cookies , coffee and hot tea was available all day long .All the service staff were attentive and friendly. Since the ship was small , we felt we were traveling with friends. We look forward to cruising on another Viking cruise. Read Less

This was an early November cruise and the temps were terrific at the start and got cooler as we headed north. It was fun to enjoy some of the Christmas markets that had already opened. Make sure to enjoy the Gluhwein. It is wonderful! Right from the beginning the crew made you feel welcome and cared for. We arrived early in the day and had our room within a half hour. The food was really good at every meal. We met some wonderful people and have stayed connected with a few couples and plan to cruise with them in the future. This was my first Viking River cruise and it will not be the last. Everything was great and I cannot add anything that would have made it better. We added our own AirBnB at the beginning and end of the tour - Loved the extra time in Budapest, enjoyed touring Buda & Pest and taking in the baths. We purchased a Budapest card and travelled everywhere on public transit. We also enjoyed Nurmberg and a day trip to Rothenburg with a few extended days afterward - we added a hotel right near the walled city - Holiday Inn Express. Perfect Location.. Read Less

Absolutely the best vacation. The entire staff was outstanding, but 4 people stood out. Oliver, the Program Director, was professional, enthusiastic, articulate, energetic, and very flexible. Anything he was a part of was made fun and memorable. Chef Renee, the head chef, was very personable and he and his cooking staff were always on point with the meals aboard the ship. His personal attention made us feel like he cared about my family and I. Additionally, he was a great guide on the 1 tour he guided through a farmer's market in Vienna. Belle, our server in the dining room, and her assistant Ali, were outstanding as well. Their personal attention to me and my family was second to none. We looked forward to breakfast and dinner not only because of the delicious food, but also their smiling faces and eager attitudes. Their superb service made them excellent Viking ambassadors. The only "4" rating was for value. I just thought the costs associated with the optional shore excursions were a bit high. The entire staff of the Ebil made Viking River Cruises very proud. Well done to all! Read Less
