Fantastic experience in every way!

Trip of a Lifetime

This was our first river cruise and first time to Europe and we did not want to travel on our own. A river cruise was very appealing as we aren't ocean cruise fans. The itinerary was wonderful and we planned for a ...

What to expect on a river cruise if you normally do ocean cruises

Like most of the passengers on this river cruise, I fell for Viking's relentless promotions and advertising. In particular, visiting the Christmas markets sounded like fun. So, off my husband and I went. Embarkation ...

Great service but ship was a mechanical mess

Our ship was changed from the Baldur to the Magni due to low water. The crew was magnificent, the food was exemplary, and the tours we were able to accomplish were great. Our biggest issue was the ongoing mechanical ...

First river cruise a success

This was our first river cruise -- the Grand European -- and we went in with limited expectations, although at the steep rates we did expect the best. We weren't disappointed. No complaints possible about onboard ...

Awesome experience

Our first time in Europe and with Viking River Cruises. What an experience! Our stateroom was great, but we were barely in our room since we took advantage of the included tours and most of the optional ones. Our ...

Danube Waltz on the Viking Magni

Since this year was fraught with lock strikes, high water and the possibility of bad weather we were a little skeptical that this cruise would go without a problem. Also, the airfare was very reasonable through ...

This is the way to see Europe!

I have never done a cruise before, ocean or otherwise, but my friend and I who are both in our 50s decided to do the Passau-Budapest Danube Waltz. The advertisements were compelling, but they don't do justice to the ...

Viking magni had major electrical issues, and a premature ending on it

We sailed on the Viking Magni (the newest of the long ships) from Budapest to Amsterdam on it's second voyage. This was our second river cruise, but I cannot compare it to the one I took 20 years ago. We have ...
