A traveling companion found that Viking was offering a 2 for one deal plus air fare so signed up for it. We sailed from Amsterdam to Budapest with many fun interesting along the way. We were to sail on the Viking Ve but due to river conditions, shallow water, we started on the Viking Gefjon and had to change to the Ve about half way. The crew on both ships made the swap very easy and painless and both crews were very accommodating. This was our first river cruise and first with Viking we found everything on board to be top notch and shore excursions were fun and interesting. Our cruise director, Sam was absolutely fantastic not sure when he slept as he was always seemed to be out and about while we were underway and was always available while coordinating shore excursions. Would we sail with Viking again? Oh Yea! Read Less

I chose this cruise because it was going to Budapest, which I consider the most beautiful city in the world. Although I had heard that cruise food was wonderful I was unprepared for how delicious it was and how accommodating the staff were in seeing that we had anything we needed. The service was fabulous and the people were so cheerful and learned our names, cabins and what we liked best to eat. There was entertainment all the time and it was so interesting that I only read 10 pages of the 3 books I had brought with me! I was not prepared to enjoy the other passengers so very much and to spend so much time in conversation. They called my daughter and me the Dynamic Duo and we were very popular. We danced with the bartenders. Our tour guide, Sam, was very thoughtful and helped explain about difficult tours. I had broken my back the month before the ship left and was in some pain. We often took the "easy" tour but didn't feel like we missed anything. For the most part the included shore excursions were just right and very interesting. It was disappointing to have only one day in Budapest but the nighttime cruise was a huge highlight. Although this was expensive, it was worth it. Loved it. Read Less

My wife and her two friends needed a getaway, so we took the riverboat cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. Our trip was incredible, from the moment we landed in Munich till we left. The Viking staff took full control from Memphis, tn. and once aboard, we were treated like royalty. I cannot say enough about the staff, the room (heated floors in bathroom), the food, just fantastic. We took several tours, and to my amazement these were first class also. I cannot say enough about the fun we had, the entertainment, the quality of service, the boat and the staff, all were first class. On a star rating of 5, we give Viking 6 stars and much more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are looking forward toward another trip in 2017, we are planning to take a 14 day cruise this time, an cannot wait for the trip to begin Bil,sandy, Ren and Marilyn l from Tennessee Read Less
