Review summary

Very disappointing!!!! - While we know Viking can not control the water levels of the river, they could have notified us and offered to let us re-schedule at a later date. The river level has been a problem all summer. We spent a lot of money and only got one day on the river. Basically had a bus tour that was not enjoyable.

We were not able to board our boat in Nuremburg but were bussed to Passau (not notified ahead of time)!

Ship tip

Read the fine print - Better check to see if the river levels will allow you to actually travel on the river - they didnt tell us until we got there,
