Never been to Europe and never been on a river cruise. Been on several ocean cruises and really liked the “smallness” and tranquility offered by the river cruise. Selected this river cruise because of its itinerary. We were more than pleased with the quality our rooms and quality/variety of our meals. Because there were less than 200 people on board, we got to several people over our two weeks plus we got to know many of the staff. Excellent choice of tours to take at each city and the guides were all very, very good. All the tours were well-organized and the transportation to all the tours was comfortable and organized well. The evening get togethers in the loungewete both fun and informative.Breakfast choices were excellent as were the lunch choices. I also really enjoyed sitting on my veranda in the evenings when we were cruising because it was so peaceful. Service was awesome and I will do another Viking river cruise in the future!! Read Less

We had heard from our neighbors and friends about their fantastic experience with Viking River cruises and had been on our ever expanding bucket list for "to do" things. We finally did it in June of 2018. It was a 15 day Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. It turns out that the cruise turned out to be better than our extremely high expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality, service, and the worry free cruise. The crew was fantastic. It felt like we were with our loving and caring extended family. The included excursions were more than we would have asked for. It was convenient and educational having not to worry about what to do and what it is going to cost. The food was exceptional with compliments of wine and beer. We are taking another Viking Cruise on Dec 13 to Cuba & Panama, and one in May of next year. We love Viking Cruises; they meet and exceed our expectations. Read Less

Our first Viking River cruise. We chose a river cruise to try the smaller Viking experience and it was a great decision. We sailed from Budapest and did a pre-sail visit which was exciting. The town was beautiful and we saw many different sites in both Buda and Pest. We thought the prettiest site in Budapest was the nite cruise up and down the river. The ship was absolutely immaculate and looked as if it had just been launched. The cabins although smaller then the Ocean cruise were very comfortable and absolutely spotless. The staff was amazing and made us feel like we were family that just stopped by for a visit. There were 10 people in our group so one can imagine the discussions and ordering challenges at meal time. But to the staff's credit, they never got a meal wrong. Most impressive was by the second morning the entire dining staff new all of our names no matter where we sat at the table. The food was excellent and there was always something that would fit your tastes and the size of your appetite. Stefan and Lucia always did an outstanding job keeping our glasses full with beer, wine or other creations. Every day was an adventure into a new city (port) with its own culture that went back in time. The surrounding countryside offered spectacular views as we sailed up the Danube through the locks toward Amsterdam. The highlite of the daily activity was Sam, the program director. He was extremely funny and made us all laugh. He clearly enjoyed his job which means the trip is more enjoyable for the guests. Sam is by far the best program director we have seen to date on any cruise line. He is a fantastic representative for the Viking organization. We will definitely go again with Viking. Thank you to everyone on the Gefjon for making a trip more enjoyable. Read Less
