We really enjoyed the cruise.  The tour guides were wonderful, very educational. The ship was not quite as nice as the last Viking ship we were on but the food and staff were wonderful. Also, Melissa from was very helpful and responsive.

Good

The crew on board loves their job.

Stateroom is very clean and size similar to ocean liner

Food is exceptional and regionalized as we travel

The local tour guides are excellent.

Complimantary wine and beer at meal time

Improvement

Arrvial experiences.  No meet and greet at the dock

Better communicate on arrival docking.  6 ships in Budepest no one knows where you dock.  You could have send out a email.

No one answer the phone # provided in the cruise package

Better entertainment.  The piano player could be a one man show like on the cruise ship rather than back ground music. The regional show is poor lounge is half empty.

Do more activities on top deck.

Have some low impact exercises equiptment available.  Like yoga mat, bar bell, cords etc.

Need better TV selection.  Some American channels

Your air travel department should be rename NO NO NO. And additional fee

The tours were excellent. 

 We had an excellent Viking representative Carmo meet us in Munich 

We had a problem with our luggage arriving at the hotel and Carmo worked on the problem until it was completely resolved within hours

 The hotels in Munich in Salzburg we're both beautiful

Our Bucket List Trip

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

With all the unrest in Europe, we were unsure as to whether or not we should cancel our Danube Trip.  After a month of discussion including talking with Viking representatives who convinced us that their security was top notch we decided to continue with our plans.  What we found was that there is no security on the boat!  Anyone can get on the boat.  At times we were connected to other boats and you had to walk thru the other boat in order to get to shore.  Not the security we were expecting.  With that said, we felt pretty secure at the places we visited.  The Danube is beautiful!  The tour guides were knowledgeable, but sometimes talked way to much.  Most people spoke English and if someone didn't you could always find someone who did.  The food on the boat was okay, but the food on shore was wonderful.  We found several restaurants that were less "tourist spots" that were fantastic!  You will not leave the table hungry and the price is reasonable.  The Danube and Europe was five star!  The Viking river boat was average - rooms were small, but we knew that, the food selection was limited with no room service, but we knew that, drinks were included during meals, but after getting your first drink you never see them again, the excursions were informative, but at times a bit to long, the people were friendly, but at times abrasive, we thought we were going to Salzburg, but they changed the itinerary, there was an odor of sulfur every time we docked - not pleasant.  With all that said, we came back very happy that we went.

Great Viking River Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Seven nights of greatness.  Each day was filled with new villages and ports. Food was superb! The staff one of the friendliest we have encounter on our total of third river cruises. Mihai, Flav, JP, Armando, Esteven, Miranta, Evita to mention the few. We had plenty of water in the river, as the weeks prior had to be bussed because of low water in the Danube. However, we did have two weeks of rain!  Not cold, but rain.  Vienna concert was great.  The ship made an effort to arrive in Budapest before bedtime so we could see the lights. Beautiful.  The only downside, not enough free time in Salzburg.
