Outstanding in Every way by seajai14

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Njord / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

Viking really lived up to their advertising. The cruise was fantastic. The ship was clean and beautiful. The crew and staff were helpful and friendly. The food was great and they offered local wines, beers, dishes, and desserts. Our favorite part was an extension tour in Nuremberg on WWII. All the tour guides were knowledgeable and informative. We were Viking Virgins and are already thinking about where we want to go next.

Overall Good Experience by rkoller52

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Njord / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

Overall, the staff was very good, although some additional variation in the food offerings and canned music in the lounge would have been appreciated.


Also, owing to high water (v. bridge clearances), the upper deck was closed for about three days. I think we and others felt cooped-up, and couldn't quite understand why sections of the upper deck weren't made available when we were docked. Assume there was some valid reason.


Walking tours tended to be longer and tedious, especially for older folks.


Having said all this, we would probably consider going on another Viking cruise although we would plan a bit more about what we might do on our own when making shore visits.


Two days in Budapest prior to cruise were great, as was the local host!

Actually we were on two ships, the Njord after Passau and the Freya out of Nurenburg

Actually, we were on two ships; Freya at Nuremberg and Njord from Passau. We would have preferred being notified in advance of change ship so we could have planned unpacking/packing more efficiently. Otherwise, the actual change ship was seamless.
