I had never been to Europe and this gave me a variety of countries without hopping different hotels.. The accommodations, the cruise director, the Captain and crew all made it memorable. The sight seeing excursions couldn’t have been better. The food was good, entertainment in the lounge was very enjoyable. Weather was unusually warm but very accommodating for our excursions. Budapest was one of my favorite places. The amazing architecture of all the different places just continued to be totally awe inspiring. To think we could dine in a place that was built in 800 ad was mind boggling. It was probably the absolute best trip for the money. Highly recommend it for any one who is considering a river cruise. I cannot say enough good about the Viking cruise line. They took exceptionally good care of us in the light of the worst conditions they had encountered on these waters. The drought conditions made parts of the Rhine and Danube unpassable and they handled it with professionalism and poise. Thank you Viking! Read Less

Severe drought in Europe and they made it so perfect... absolutely fabulous crews! The food was spectacular always, all three meals everyday... don’t know how they do it so well. The cruise director Anthony was out of this world, I don’t think he ever slept... his team had everything perfect everyday! The excursions were great, even people in wheelchairs were taken care of. One of my favorite things was the evening cruise around Budapest when all the buildings were lit up... gorgeous! I was able to sit on the top deck and have a cigar in the smoking area which was just fabulous. I usually like having a cigar bar on a cruise ship but having an outdoor area on the top deck of the river was just perfect. Cruising along the Danube river looking at churches and castles they had speakers all around the top deck and they were giving us an audio history lesson, just made it perfect. I would highly recommend this cruise, spend the money to be on the middle or top deck of the three..well worth it! Read Less

This was our first river cruise and we loved it! We were cruising with sister and brother-in-law for their 50th anniversary, as well as another couple of friends, which made it especially fun. We enjoyed seeing new ports, especially smaller cities, and revisiting some places we'd been before. The included tours at each port were wonderful -- knowledgeable, friendly, and fun guides. We also took a couple optional tours in ports we'd been to before, and those were wonderful as well, and felt like good value for the money. Loved the pace of the river boat and being able to see the shore as we glided by. Dining was a nice assortment of old favorites, available every night, and regional dishes from the regions we were passing through. Included wines also represented the various regions. Entertainment ranged from history talks to opera to a glass blower who worked with Chihuly! The crew made the cruise fun, while providing a first-class experience. We came with friends and went home with more! We'd definitely go again! Read Less

* Very impressed with personal journey booklet, all details if we were needed, which were perfect because our flight were delayed. * Our cabin was always very clean and the cruise service were polite. * I am impressed with cruise director information daily, our cruise director always working above our expectation. * Included tours and optional tours are great. Transfers were excellent. * I did not drink wine or soft drink except for water, which is fine with me. However, we did not like dinner food, main courses, most of the time. Breakfasts were great. * We could not invite any family members and friends because they did not like the idea of paying for full price a year in advance, or when booking. * We like the idea of switching to different groups, which given cruisers a chance to get to know people from different countries. Sometimes it might turn out that people are from you home town/ state. * We are physically active, unfortunately walking desk was closed due to the weather. However, we enjoy the music and dancing at night instead for our physically work out. Read Less

We loved the Tulips and Windmills trip we took in April 2015. This year we wanted to see more of Europe through the Grand European River Cruise. We were so exhausted from our travels from Salt Lake City, Utah to Amsterdam that we tried to catch up on sleep since the weather was cold and rainy, rather then sight see. Fortunately we got to see Amsterdam the previous year. We really enjoyed the German cities of Cologne, Koblenz, Miltenberg, Wurzburg, Bramberg, Nuremberg, Regensburg and Passau; as well as Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary. The country side was absolutely beautiful as we passed slowing on the river and through all the locks that we had to go through to change from one river to another and change in elevations in the rivers. We couldn't ask for better food on the ship or a such a comfortable cabin that met all our needs and wants. We have already booked our next Viking river cruise for Oct. 2016 to go to China. Viking does such a great job of taking care of their passengers needs and comforts on the ship. The shore excursions are so wonderful that I want to come back to all the places we have visitied so I can spend more time. I have learned so much about European history that I didn't know and truly appreciate the exposure to new cultures and cuisine. Viking does such a great job in organizing everything on the day of disembarking. We had no worries about luggage or missing our flights. They helped make the transitions into the airports and getting our tickets flow so smoothly. We really appreciated all the Viking crew that spoke excellent English so we could communicate with all of them. Read Less

If you would like a poor river, bus and walking tour, book with Viking Cruise Line, I think. You will also get poor attitude and food at times. We were on 4 different ships which meant packing and unpacking every time with bus rides between ships. Our room flooded 3 times with sewer water on different ships. I asked for a ice pack for my diabetes meds because of the long bus rides and was refused by a hotel manager. Thus it went bad and caused me big problems. This was on our bucket list, I'm 80 and saved for years for trip. We received a letter from Viking Cruise Line offering a small % for our next cruise with Viking, I called and asked for cash which replied no. Be careful when you plan a cruise. Read Less

This was our first trip to Europe and first river cruise. We had no idea what to expect. In a nutshell, Viking exceeded all of our expectations! Friendly, always ready to help staff; fabulous, healthy food choices every day. Beautiful ship with every amenity you would need...and more! Entertaining shore excursions with such efficient fun staff members. Bus travel was wonderful- when needed. Everything appeared to be brand new and fresh. We never felt lost or unsure of where we were supposed to be or how we were to get there. Everything was well planned and orchestrated. I give Viking stright 10's across the board and can't wait for our next Viking adventure!! The Rhine was gorgeous and offered so much to see and experience. A week was absolutely not long enough! We loved the shore excursions- there was something for everyone. Viking was kind enough to arrange to have bicycles delivered to our ship so that our group could go off on our own bicycle trip two afternoons of the trip! It was fantastic. The staff offered suggestions of places we could go to on our own and great activities we could do for some good exercise. We love to remain active while traveling and Viking helped us do exactly that! From the Captain to all crewmembers, we say "Thank you" for a job very well done! You made your home feel like "our home" while traveling. We will travel on the rivers of the world again with Viking! Read Less
