We knew about low water levels before leaving the UK. Viking offered us a full refund prior to travelling. However, we wanted to see the towns and cities, so went. We stayed in Budapest for an extra 2 days at the Intercontinental , this was amazing, and we paid extra to have a room with a view over the Danube - well worth it. We spent one night in a ship in Budapest and were bussed from Budapest to Vienna and remained in a second ship for the remainder of the cruise. This was early Dec and we were the first Viking ship since June to get through. The crew were faultless, food excellent, visits and Christmas markets were brilliant. We know river levels vary, so we kept an eye on it and went with an open mind and had an excellent time.
