We choose to go on the cruise to celebrate our Priest 10 year Ordination. We had a wonderful time. We felt pampered and looked after. Our Cruise Director Anthony was Wonderful from start to to finish. When we had to change to the Skinir he gave us every detail Then we had to leave the boat he was with us every step of the way even to our leaving the hotel and loading our bags in the van for our trip to the airport. Our wait staff was Amazing and they remembered the names of our whole party of 8 from the first night. When we changed boat the Skinir staff was equally Great. The Entertainment was was Outstanding. We had a Great time each evening. The staff was always there to answer any questions we had. All 8 of us had an amazing time celebrating Fr Kirk. We have booked an Ocean Cruise for June. The Homeland. Read Less

WE arrived in Amsterdam after an overnight flight from ATL-AMS on KLM. Great flight and crew with KLM. Viking met us at baggage claim and gave us VIP treatment to ship. (Our airfare was part of the cruise fare.) We had made the same cruise about 8-9 years ago Budapest to Amsterdam on Viking but this was in the opposite direction. (AMS-BUD). What a big improvement in the MODI over our previous Viking ship! While we had "basement" cabins both cruises, Modi was much improved with bigger cabin and bathroom. Really enjoyed the big screen TV and outside cameras of locks and scenery. Attention to service from the crew was outstanding! Especially in dining and bar areas. All made us feel special and the extra attention we haven't seen on the many ocean cruises we have made in the past. There was more transporting by bus than we had on previous cruise but we understand why since ship can't count on lock availability when needed since locks are so much busier now and cruise lines can not get scheduled lock times like they used to have. Viking has a fleet of dedicated Viking buses to handle us and does it well. Only complaint is we sometimes had long waits in towns to get back to ship but understand the logistics of getting the ship, passengers and buses together at the same time. It boils down to --river cruising has become very popular in Europe and there is just so much room for docking in town. The tours were very nice and well staffed with qualified guides. Headsets were great and needed by us older folks! Ports were well thought out and really interesting. Due to high water for passing under bridges, we were unable to make the wine tour of the Wachau Valley but do understand it was no fault of Viking. Only negative comment about the cruise. We were one of three couples on the cruise. WE all bought trip cancellation from Viking. One of our couples had a medical problem and had to return home early and 2 1/2 months later, they are still waiting for insurance co. to settle up with them for their airfare home and other parts of the cruise they were unable to complete. Viking was very helpful to them in arranging for airfare home at a more reasonable fare than the airlines offered. Also, folks at front desk on ship were very helpful in arranging transportation for the other two couples from BUD-Prague at the end of the cruise. 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

Took the Christmas cruise from Budapest to Passau. Weather was not the best; overcast all days but one. This is not a viking issue though. Experience was terrific aboard ship. Great food, terrific service and good entertainment. Took only the optional Mozart/Strauss classical presentation. Only 1 1/2 hours, but the musicians, dancers and vocalists were extremely good. Seats not the best and the intermission champagne was below good, but the music and acoustics were great. And no electronics, just pure instrument sounds. Would advise it. Back to the boat though. The selections at each meal were varied and all great except only one night with German sausages that was only good, not my preference. All activities were explained, on time and reviewed the evening before. Very helpful. The free morning tours were usually good with some gaps in the walking tours. I especially liked the service that Viking provided for airport transportation at the beginning and end of the trip. Convenient and timely. The Christmas bazaars got to be redundant after the first two or three, but not under Viking control. Read Less
