Viking Baldur 14 Night Grand European Tour Eastbound by dunnfam5

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Our favorite part was traveling with friends, visiting old and new haunts.  The ship's crew was fantastic.  We could not have asked for more.


My only wishes for future cruises would be to get a heads up before airline reservations are confirmed.  We would have stayed a few days longer had it not required the expense of changing tickets.  Also, it would be nice to have some included (or optional) tours that were not always focused on the urban setting.  A trip to a forest or a day biking along the rivers would have been welcomed.

We enjoyed the cruise very much. There were some stops that could have been eliminated in turn getting a day or two in Amsterdam! Probably should change the name of the Cruise from Budapest to Kinderdijk. 


The crew was wonderful and very attentive. The rooms and the ship were spotless and the food was very good.


A few more nights of something to do would have been good. Trivia was fun. Perhaps, more game nights. 


All in all we enjoyed it, just was disappointed that we never got to Amsterdam.

I could expound endlessly but the best summary of the trip was exceptional in every way. The accommodations, the staff, the chefs, and the information at every stop was all anyone could ask for.

Viking River Cruise Baldur October 2016 by tdbranner

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I have taken over 30 cruises over the past 20 years.  I have stayed in balconied cabins, suites, and the traditional interior cabins.  I have been overall always very satisfied until this sailing.


I took my first Viking River Cruise last week. Here is a brief pro's and con's:

Pro's: 1) Easy embarkation/debarkation; 2) Friendliness of most Staff; 3) Virtually smoke free environment; 4) Walking Tours Fantastic; 5) PrePost trips were Superior

Con's: 1) Almost everyone became sick during the trip (probably some cleanliness issues, my party did not get sick until returning home); 2) Food was average at best; 3) Strict Dining Times (always had cookies); 4) Lack of Any Exercise Equipment; 5) Bathroom Drainage and Overall Ventilation Issues (limited fresh air); 6) Extremely Noisy due to 67+ locks

Trip of a lifetime by Cruiser14865828

Seeing the windmills in the Netherlands and enjoying Budapest for the first time. 


The river cruise was nice, but not all guides were of a top caliber that you would expect 8n paying over  $30K.


The transfers worked well until we got to the airport to travel home.  We did not park close to 5he terminal and no one was around to assist with all our luggage.   Once inside there was very little assistance by 5he Viking rep to get us checked in for our flight s.  We all ended up going separate ways to take care of our needs.

Check the weather before going; not just for the predictions (seasonal averages), but actual details. We had a delightfully if not surprisingly warm and sunny trip when we were expecting cool and rainy weather. Consequently, we under packed for warm weather (but what a nice problem to have!).
