SUMMARY This was our first river cruise after 25+ ocean cruises and we had heard nothing but good things about Viking. Our river cruise wound up being about 1/3 European bus tour and while I can not fault Viking for low river levels, I can fault them for misleading information in their sales pitches (upper deck of the ship closed to passengers for 5 of the 14 days??? Really???) and how they ...

We have continuously heard of very positive experiences with Viking European River Cruises. Add us to the list of extremely satisfied travelers. Their website, reservations, customer service, travel details and logistics to the actual cruise and excursions were near flawless. We have had the opportunity to travel fairly often in our early retirement. Our Viking Grand River Cruise is now number ...

Cruise director Gary was very nice, but a bit sarcastic at times, which I was fine with, but my have put off others. He was an asset, in any event. Nightly entertainment was in need of improvement. Those brought in for special nights were good, but the "lounge players" could have been better. We were on the Villi and then changed to the Meli, because of low water. Both lounges singers were ...

This cruise was a 50th wedding anniversary gift to ourselves. We were so pampered! The staff was always courteous, friendly an catered to our every whim. The program director was so entertaining as well as being knowledgeable. He had everything very well organized. He had a great sense of humor. It was always good to see the captains as well. The wheelhouse tour was a special treat. The ...

Danube River cruise with Viking- I recently took a Viking river cruise, the Danube Waltz with other adult family members. The weather was perfect so we enjoyed the sun deck on the ship and our outdoor time in respective ports. A cruise can be a great way to explore a new area without having to arrange for your own tours or transportation. However, there are a couple of things to be mindful of: ...

Spent 3 days in Prague and got to know the city; shuttle busses allowed independent exploration; took the provided 41/2 mile walking tour and although she moved fast she did try to accommodate my difficulty walking fast and up/down stairs. Wanted to explore the countries we visited. Great ports and activities, but tour guides for the "slow walkers" had no mercy and most of them just moved way too ...

We selected this cruise because it seemed a great way to end our first trip to Europe. After touring on out own for almost three weeks through Spain, we hopped on the Vili and enjoyed being pampered, educated, and transported in luxury. The facilities and staff were excellent, and the included tours started every day with an overview of the area. The food was wonderful, and the included beer ...

We've cruised with Viking in the past, and they definitely don't disappoint. They deliver exactly what we want in a vacation. Their staff is professional and capable while remaining warm and accessible. By day two the bar staff had already memorized my favorite cocktail, the maître d knew where we liked to eat for dinner, and the wait staff brought me a special serving of the vegetables I ...

We boarded our ship in Budapest. The only downside was that our first full day what's a national holiday which was the equivalent of the forth of July and everything was closed as a result. We did get an unexpected cruise along the river. It was a clear evening and the lights along the shore were spectacular. The service, food and included tours were outstanding! My wife and I loved them. The ...

A small river boat from Budapest to Amsterdam. City tours every day, river cruise every night. Incredible staff, better food, and luxurious accommodations. I got an understanding of the history or the river valleys, the castles, the monasteries, the Prince Bishops and the stages of the agriculture, the wars, the religions, and economies over 2000 years. Detail: Embarkation and ...
