Review summary

Viking River Cruises has spent the entire summer lying to their customers about the Danube River levels. We spent more time on the bus than we did on the boat. We bussed to Vienna not cruised. We had to change boats midway on the destination. I had asked 3 weeks prior and I was offered a cancelation but not a refund. Avoid using VIking as they're totally unscrupulous as you can read on many other reviews! And if you're Vegetarian totally stay away from this line!

Ship tip

Use another Cruise line..Viking has lied to their customers the entire sail season. The "Cruise" became a bus tour of the Danube!
