Wonderful trip!

Everything on this cruise was outstanding. From the time we were met at the

airport to when we started home and a Viking rep actually went into the airport and helped us get our boarding passes, the Viking people thought of everything to make our trip perfect.

We saw beautiful scenery, interesting cities and countries with very interesting histories, and lovely people. Our trip included outstanding food (with interesting wines for lunch & dinner as well as mimosas at breakfast),  well thought out variety of excursions (included}, a room with high end fixtures & bedding that was Happytidied up several times a day, and friendly, helpful, hard-working staff that met our every need and whim.

Cabin / Stateroom
Of course the rooms on cruises are small, but the balcony really expanded it, and we enjoyed sitting out on it. The shower was exceptional, with good water pressure, and a nice hand-held shower head. Bedding & bed were very comfortable. Room was cleaned frequently & bottled water was kept replenished all the time

Budapest, Hungary
It has the most beautiful buildings! Anything you buy is expensive and same souvenirs are seen everywhere!
Kalocsa, Hungary
At the Equestrian Center we saw a show with beautiful horses
Vukovar (Osijek), Croatia
The small group visit to a home was a highlight of the trip.
Belgrade, Serbia
I loved the view from the fort, and this was my favorite shopping city. Great original souvenirs at a reasonable price.
Cruise The Iron Gates
Spending one relaxing day on the ship seeing some of the most beautiful scenery was nice break.
Vidin, Bulgaria
Interesting 1 hour ride through countryside to Belogradchik Rocks -great views & interesting rock formations
Ruse (Russe, Rousse), Bulgaria
Giurgiu, Romania
End Of Vacation
Nice to have a day in Budapest to prepare for the long flight. Appreciated Viking making the airport transfer so easy, even setting ups an early (3AM!) breakfast, and sending someone into the airport with us to help with boarding passes.


Be prepared for a wonderful experience. On this Eastern European tour these formerly Communist countries are an especially interesting part of Europe that aren't so touristy, and have beautiful scenery & architecture with wonderful, friendly people who show inspiring resiliency.
