The tours, visiting with local citizens that not only shared each country's history and culture, but shared their personal and family perspectives on culture and recent history...making it come alive for me!
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.
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.
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.
