From all cruises my wife and I have taken in the past, none of them hold a candle to the accommodations and friendly staff that we experienced on this cruise with Viking. I was extremely impressed with Viking Air ...

The Good - Prague pre-trip at Hilton (make sure your room has been recently renovated), Regensburg/Vienna/Budapest attractions, the European winter markets, excellent service on the ships, flow of wine/beer at lunch ...

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 ...

"AVERAGE" ....and I'm being generous!

Third and last Viking cruise. Scheduled for the Var, boarded the Kara instead and then after a couple days packed and boarded the Tor. High water was again the reason given although the competitor Thomas Hardy ...

Casual comfort, well-cared for and excellent excursions

Previously, I had been on one ocean cruise and did not prove to be a good sailor - green the whole week. With some trepidation, I tried the Romantic Danube cruise by Viking and it was a complete success! There is no ...

Delightful Danube!

We chose this cruise, having been on Viking previously, to see places we had not been before. There seemed so much breadth in history and culture to see, and we were so very right. Simply riding the Danube on one of ...

Different and Interesting!

Our first river cruise. It was very good! Now. It was the Viking TOR - a small ship - not what ocean cruisers are used to. Everything is smaller and limited. The staterooms are smaller, the public spaces are ...

We wanted to experience some of the best cities along the Danube River. However, we also wanted to spend some time in Prague before the cruise began. It was all absolutely super. The Hilton hotel was great - the ...

Book on a cheaper line; not worth the price despite all the hype!

I have done at least 8 higher end cruises and had come to expect you get what you pay for. Not on Viking, so save your dollars and book on a cheaper line. I booked for the Romantic Danube on the longship Tor in ...
