Review summary

Have been very pleased with the Viking experience, it's all about the destination. All tour guides are knowledgeable and provides lots of information. Food and restaurant staff are excellent! Enjoy the "smaller" feel of a river cruise.

Given the low water level in Budapest we were not able to cruise out, instead got bussed out and missed spend Viking did what they could given the situationing a little more time in Budapest.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
This original stateroom (118) had loud vacuum sounds coming out of toilet, which we were told was "normal". Having been on another viking river cruise, that is not the case. Had other friends also staying in level 1 staterooms, and they had the same loud issue. Ultimate got moved to a different floor, would definitely stay away for first level on the Viking Legend.

Ship tip

Do not book stateroom in level 1, choose level 2 or 3.
