We were very pleased with all aspects of the trip, the ship, the locations visited, the food and the cruise time on the rivers but most outstanding was the competent and very friendly care provided by the staff.

Smooth Sailing! by rosemarycoffey

Everything went very smoothly. The crew were cheerful and responsive, and the guides clearly knew what they were talking about. Wine flowed freely at meals, and fellow travelers were congenial. About the only suggestion for improvement that I have is to ask cruisers to wear name tags at meals, in order to help us remember whom we've met and whom we have not!

Everything here is first-class. On every stop, and in-between, you’re well taken care of.  The tours, by bus and foot, are led by knowledgeable local guides.  The food on a small ship is excellent.  Dining room  is open seating, so we met interesting couples from around the English-speaking world.

As veteran ocean-liner cruisers, we were impressed at how all-inclusive this was.   Big ships always seem to be looking out for extra money, whether casinos, drinks, land tours, bingo or auctions.  Drinks at meals are free on Viking, so the only charges are for the bar at other times.  Tips are optional, not mandated as on large cruises.  Even the Internet is free.

The trip is extremely well-organized.  The only glitch came when a local bus arrived late, and officers spent the rest of the day apologizing for the few minutes’ delay.

It was a bit too cold in mid-November (we had to wait til the World Series was over for our trip).  I’d recommend going earlier in the year.

Entertainment on such a small ship is impressive, local talent performing local music (folk, opera).  Our only optional tour was to a concert in Vienna, well worth it.

TRIP OF A LIFETIME by TheHoneymooners

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first River Cruise and our honeymoon.  Viking took care of every detail - they thought of things we hadn't even considered (but that's what they do all day)!  The meals were like a 5Star Restaurant every night.  The Viking cruise director recommended places to eat & drink in the towns and even gave you warnings of tourist traps to steer clear.  I can't say enough about how wonderful the trip was....the only recommendation I would give Viking is that they need to provide accommodations for more active seniors like bicycles or walking tours - not everyone is 80 or can't walk too far, especially after all those wonderful meals!Happy

I would sail with them any day, week or year. Viking was awesome in EVERY respect .... having the guides on every excursion was wonderful. Viking made us feel as tho we were THEIR guests. From the Captain to the cabin crew they TAKE GREAT CARE of their passengers.

the welcome team made one feel most welcome. Dining was cozy since we've a group of 6, just right for a table, but we've to hurry to get a table for ourselves before others got there first.

Don't bother bringing an umbrella - they have plenty onboard to provide when you leave the ship. Maybe just a rain jacket if it's raining that day.
