Danube Waltz in November was terrific!
"It would be hard to say what was the best part of the Viking Danube Waltz, because we had a great experience the entire time.We added on the Budapest post-cruise stay and were very glad that we did, the hotel, Corinthia Budapest, was excellent and the Viking service continued through the trip back to the airport...."Read More

Christmas markets cruise

Went with a few friends and family to see the Christmas markets. I would recommend this to everyone. The 2 bad things were that they had a very heavy rainy season. This made getting from Passau to Budapest very challenging for the crew since we have to go under bridges. We did get stuck in Vienna for an extra night. That was not vikings first rodeo with theses issues. That made things happen so we ...

We were on the last ship to depart Passau for Budapest along the Danube for the Christmas Markets. We left on December 20th after a stay in Passau. We had rain and as the river began to rise it became questionable about making our destination in Budapest by ship. We were able to make our scheduled stops in Linz and in Krems. We departed Krems after the morning excursions in order to get ahead of ...

the overall experience was really disappointing. I felt that Viking skimped on alot of small but very important items. First off, the buffet when we arrived on the ship was sparce, not many selections. However, the check in could not have been more efficient. We have been on close to 10 cruises so far and I would rate Viking at the lowest end of the cruises. Staff was great but there was ...

We chose the cruise as it was to celebrate our 25th wedding Anniversary and we wanted to do something special. It started on my birthday and ended on our 26th Anniversary. We liked the idea of a small ship, less people and where we could see the shore at all times. Not only was that provided to us but we got treated like royalty. From the Program Director George to our cleaning lady Catalina ...

We chose a Viking cruise, as my husband refuses to sail on larger ships. In fact, it took some convincing to get him on a Viking River Cruise! However, once we were on board, it was obvious that we'd made a wonderful choice. From the ease of booking and knowledge of customer service team, the flawless travel to/from our destination and knowledge that Viking team we're tracking us all the way, ...

We had the explorer suite which is phenomenal! It was like our own apartment to view the whole trip. We spent time on the balcony sipping wine and viewing the beautiful Danube from Budapest to Passau. Leaving Budapest at night, the lights were amazing as we traveled under each bridge. We also went through 9 or 10 locks. I was aware of and watched two that were huge and very cool to experience. ...

I wanted to experience traveling on a longboat in Europe. It was my first cruise on a longboat. It exceed my expectations. It was smooth sailing. Everything went smoothly from picked up at the airport and returning to the airport once the cruise was over. My stateroom was very comfortable and inviting. The design of the stateroom, made it feel larger than it is. I utilized the balcony ...

We had done the Rine a couple years ago and wanted to do a Danube as we were so impressed with it. Only issue was locating our Viking representative at the airport on Budapest, after finding him he took excellent care to lead us through getting our flight. The driver from the ship to airport just sort of dumped us and left. No communication! The food and food service was excellent as we have ...

We chose this cruise for my 5oth birthday celebration. Every second from take off to returning home the viking team was amazing ! Getting us to the ship from the airport ,the staff was incredible at helping us (with our lost luggage) and finding our way. The luggage was the airlines fault, yet viking took charge and it was soon delivered to our state room by end of the 1st night !. The ...

After sailing the Rhine river with Viking, we knew we would have to enjoy more Viking river cruises. We selected the Danube Waltz cruise and had an incredible time. Spending 3 days in Budapest prior to embarkation, then 3 days in Salzburg and 3 days in Munich after debarkation, the overall vacation was unforgettable! The accommodations abord the ship were luxurious, the staff was outstanding, the ...
