Perfect Cruise on the Egil

We chose this cruise for the destinations on the Danube River. We started in Nuremberg, went to Krems, Vienna, and finished in Budapest. Viking does an excellent job with the on-board services. We thought 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 ...

Our trip down the Danube on the Bavaria to Budapest cruise.

We choose this cruise because we got to spend an extra 2 days on board compared to the similar cruise for this year. We spent 2 days in Vienna and got to make a stop prior to reaching Budapest while spending just 1 ...
