Cruising easy

First river cruise- Easy on and off ship. We were let out right on the edge (or sometimes the middle) of a historic town. Amsterdam was incredible and the hotel was centrally located. Our cruise director ( Anna) ...

The Grand Grand European Cruise

We wanted to see all stops between Amsterdam and Budapest. We figured the best way to get a snap shot was to take the 15 day river cruise. A very polished crew, exquisite food, and cabins comfortable although ...

Delights of the Danube

We had never done a river cruise and had heard from others that Viking was a good choice. We loved the smaller scale of being on a river cruise and the staff to cruisers ratio. The meals on board were so well done ...

The attention to detail was amazing and the staff and crew wonderfully helpful.

We've never wanted to do an ocean cruise but were intrigued by river cruises. We chose Amsterdam to Basel because we have family in Basel and wanted to visit at the end. The ship itself was clean and easy to ...
