Disappointing

On the Rhine Getaway cruise last year we had a fabulous time. The food was great, the trips, despite a couple of really rainy days, were enjoyable and informative. The evening entertainments were sparkling and the ...

Superlative service, accommodations and food

This was our first river cruise. We had heard good things about Viking from friends who took a similar cruise last year. Although the Danube water level was too low to make the last leg of the trip, Viking made ...

First River Cruise

Budapest has been on our "bucket list" for some time so it was a toss-up between going east or west from there. We chose the Budapest - Nuremberg route because of its popularity and we weren't disappointed. This was ...

We have sailed many ocean cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We liked the idea of being able to see multiple cities in Central Europe while unpacking only once. Overall, the cruise was OK - not sure it ...

A Fabulous Trip

It was an intimate setting on the Viking Longship. A maximum of 190 passengers, but there were only 120 of us. We were treated like royalty. We sailed down the Danube to Budapest, spending time in Vienna and ...

Best Vacation Ever!!!

We wanted to see tulips in the Netherlands in bloom. In spite of our early arrival we were taken directly to our ship. Because we had flown during the night, we were too tired to attempt to do anything on our own ...

Romantic Danube with Bus Detours

Our cruise was scheduled to start at Nurenburg but the river levels were so low that boat only got as far upstream from Budapest as Passau, Germany. The boat was docked at a freight yard and bus trips were scheduled ...
