Good, would have been better if nature co operated with rain so that we could sail down the rivers.

Land and Riverboat Experience by catherinewilcox

We loved the great hotels where we stayed, while on land:  Prague Hilton, Budapest Hilton and the Bucharest Inter-Continental.  The ship was beautiful and the staff was high class- providing exquisite service.  The tours were by local guides and brought you the history and culture of the people- which we found to be wonderful.

Viking Embla River Cruise by mjvoor

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first river cruise, and Viking certainly lived up to it;s reputation of being one of the finest.  We were very happy with the ship, staff, itinerary and side trips.  From the time we were picked up at the airport by the Viking staff until our departure, we were well cared for both on and off the ship.  The cruise director, captain and crew, waiters, room stewards, and the entire staff did everything possible to make sure that we were enjoying our trip.  Happy

Our visit to the Lazar Horse Farm outside Budapest was the perfect end to a wonderful vacation.  This was my new best friend, it was love at first sight.

Our cabin had a veranda. We enjoyed it on the days when we were back to the room before nighttime collapsed the day, and when the weather was warm and sunny. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom adequate. No in room coffee- but, you don't have to go far to get your morning cup!

The Viking Embla was a newer, modern ship. We loved he idea of the veranda, but we didn't really use it much because of the locks and cool weather. I feel that a French Balcony would have been fine also because you still have the large sliding glass doors which open to the outside.

The staff were fabulous! The coffee bars were wonderful! Those wasabi covered nuts were delicious! I loved the way someone greeted you each time you returned from a tour. My tip...just enjoy!
