Came Home From Vacation Stressed, Disappointed and Feeling Cheated

We are very dissatisfied with the overall ‘cruise’ experience and the compensation offered by Viking to make up for the changes in our anticipated vacation - a 7 day CRUISE on the Romantic Danube River. Our ...

Don't ever go on a Viking River Cruise

Where to begin?!?! It was disappointing from beginning to end. We actually "river cruised" 1 1/2 days versus the 7 days we were expecting. We were bussed around, lied to, stuck in an industrial "port" for three ...

One of the first ships in 2018 to fully navigate the upper Danube

We booked this far in advance in order to see both the sights and the Christmas Markets. Viking did a great job keeping us informed about the low water levels and the workarounds (buses). But even after the ...

Our Viking river cruise was first class.

This was an anniversary gift to ourselves. Clearly a gorgeous part of the world and to see it from the river was very special. The cruise itinerary had been changed because of low river water and we wondered if ...

Wonderful ‘First Time’ Experience

Our friends, celebrating their 50th Anniversary, invited us to join them on this cruise. My husband gets seasick so we were a bit nervous, but decided to go. The river was calm and usually we didn’t realize the ...

What a treat!

This was our first, but not last, river cruise. Have been on ocean cruises before and enjoyed them, but fell in love with the slow pace, small ship, and no crowds of the river cruise experience. Viking is ...

Cruising up the Danube

To start, we've cruised Viking before and discovered it to be a far superior and personal cruise line than many of their competitors. Cruising up the Danube from Budapest is probably one of the most scenic ...
