We chose this cruise because it took us to places we wouldn't have otherwise visited and we knew we would be spoiled and treated well. Well, it wouldn't be enough to say we received what we expected... the food and drink is incredible, tons of it and all quality. The service is spectacular and everyone tries their very best to make your day the best it can possibly be. They provide daily excursions that are so well planned, the logistics all excellent, then stand ready upon your return to cater to your every whim. We loved Vienna, Budapest and some little places in between. I recommend the 3 night add-on land package to Prague to extend the experience to a full 10 day trip. We met some fabulous people we hope to continue to cruise with in the future. It was the best trip we ever had. Of course the price is high and so we cannot go every year, but if you want to travel in style and see super interesting places, this is the way. We will be back for another in a year or so.

WE just returned home from our first river cruise: 2 weeks Grand European Cruise with Viking was outstanding. We loved every minute. Relaxing, yet lots of history to see and learn about. I cannot say enough about the crew: they were the best we have ever cruised with (previously 5 ocean cruises). 186 people are taken care of by 50 crew. That does not count the numbers of Viking employees or associates on land that made our land excursions so seamless and interesting. They definitely have the logistics down pat!! The cruise director was terrific and I would go anywhere with him again. The food was not fabulous, and I only gained 1 pound, but we chose to do as much walking as we could which was the only exercise we could get. Longships are limited in size by the lock systems on the European rivers, and by the shallow rivers we traveled on. Hence the lack of an exercise room. Since we booked air through Viking, we had greeters at our arrival airport, at the hotel of our pre-extension in Amsterdam, at the Budapest airport. WE felt special that Viking was able to make our vacation worry free. Read Less

Local friends told us about it. Viking’s reputation was a big part of this, as were the TV ads that made it seem attractive. It was all that we expected and more. We had a great time. The guides were well-prepared, the food and entertainment was terrific, and the new friends we met were very interesting and great companions. The staff did a wonderful job of organizing and directing us, and we felt comfortable and safe throughout the journey. The best thing about the Grand European Tour was the quality of the accommodations, the condition of the ship, and the way we were treated. The weather was variable, but we had a wonderful time every day, and we would love to do it again. The only unexpected event was the requirement that we change ships midway through the tour, but even that was accommodated without anxiety and the crew made it absolutely easy for us to do that. The new ship we moved to was identical except we lost some of our favorite wait staff when that happened. The cities where we docked were all accommodating, and the streets and places we went were safe and fascinating. It was a GREAT vacation trip. Read Less
