Viking Freya

Romantic Danube - Budapest to Nuremberg

Sail date: September 10, 2016

Ship: Viking Freya

Cabin type: Balcony

Cabin number: 333

Review summary

Viking tried to make the best of a bad/tragic situation. Result was more a bus tour than a cruise and not at all what we expected. I trust that Viking will do right by the passengers in terms of compensation, but that remains to be determined.
