7-Day Cruise - 3 Ship Moves, Endless Hours on Buses - Complete Disappointment

The 7-Day Romantic Danube Viking River Cruise was not so romantic and definitely not stress-free. DO NOT BOOK this Cruise itinerary between August and December as low river water levels hinder ships from sailing and ...

This was no cruise, it was a BUS RIDE

We chose this cruise as a way to see Germany, Austria and Budapest without having to unpack and change hotels. Due to the water level, we had two ship swaps so we were on a total of three ships in 7 days. There ...

Viking Danube Low Water Motor Coach Tour

We "sailed" with Viking October 12 through October 19, 2018. Our "Romantic Danube River Cruise" turned into the Danube Motor Coach Bus Tour. Due to low water levels on the Danube, which we now understand has been ...

Danube was impassable and Viking was dishonest about disruptions in itinerary.

We chose this cruise because we had heard so many wonderful things about Viking River Cruises and the beauty of the Danube as it winds through Germany, Austria and Hungary. Unfortunately, our experience did not ...

We truly enjoyed our voyage. This was our first river cruise but won't be our last. The smaller size of the ship was perfect - 180-190 passengers instead of thousands on an ocean cruise. Food and service were ...
