My husband and I took the 14-Night Grand European Tour from Amsterdam to Budapest and the cruise was nothing short of amazing fro start to finish.

The Viking Cruise staff went out of their way to make our cruise a memorable one.  From the time they picked us up at the airport in Amsterdam....to the service provided on the cruise-ship - the staff went above and beyond and provided a great deal of attention to detail and an excellent service.  

The fact that tour excursions are included is a plus; and the tour guides were very informed and pleasant as well.  The sites were amazing!

A Good Cruise Plan that ended in disappointment by biandrews

We started out on the Baldur and were very impressed until we had to transfer to another ship via bus a little after we were midway in the 2-week cruise due to low water levels. After we arrived in Vienna on the second boat (Gullveig), we were advised that we were going to have to bus to our remaining destinations, ending up in Budapest in a hotel. We understand that Viking could not control the water levels of the Rhine and Danube, but they should have told us prior to the cruise that they were having this issue. The first we knew about a problem was after several days onboard, and then, we were led to believe that a transfer to another boat would put us back on schedule. In talking with folks later (crew and previous cruisers) we discovered that this is a problem they have been having for some time this season. We should have been told prior to disembarking so we had a choice in rescheduling our cruise. We had great service, food, and shore excursions. It is unfortunate they weren't more forthcoming on the obstacles with the "river" cruise.

Tulips and windmills by oquinns

The boat, tour guides, and especially the staff are excellent...

The weather turned out horrible, sun, wind, hail, freezing rain even some light snow, and that was all in one day... The weather finally turned nice the last couple of days.  Keukenhof Gardens are well worth the trip, however some of the other stops are not that interesting, and required to much walking...

Unfortunately this was not my favorite Viking trip...Nervous

A wonderful cruise! by cainbuckner

Customer service. All the staff catered to our requests and needs. Having them all as Viking employees\, who obviously are well treated made a big difference. The ship was very clean. The ease with which you can go on and off the boat was very appealing and the included tours and our English speaking guides were amazing.
