It was NOT a cruise. It was a sub-par bus tour. I will never book with Viking again.

Cruising on the Danube by Cruiser67591023

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The Viking Var team made my vacation experience one that I'll never forget.  The longship was spotlessly clean and quite easy to move around on.  The public places were roomy, airy, and quite comfortable.  The staff was incredibly attentive and responsive to my particular needs.  The food was incredible and reflected the local culture of each stop we made. This was first trip with Viking and it certainly won't be my last.

Amazing experience by CatJones

I absolutely loved our entire experience.  The Christmas markets were a blast and I felt that we had enough time at each port to really enjoy each town.  My favorites were Rothenburg & Heidelberg.

Love the long boats! by Cruiser41449357

The intimate size of the boat was fabulous.  Staterooms as comfy as the ocean vessels.  Excellent dining and relaxing lounge.  Staff was attentive and tip top!  Included excursions were just right, informative.  Will definitely cruise another river with Viking.

Low river level on Danube interrupted our cruise and transformed the "romantic" excursion into a bus tour for Regensburg, Passau and Melk (missed Krems altogether, this was a substitute). Had to repack and change ships outside Melk for our Wachau Valley "scenic pass" - which was about 20 minutes at 5:45pm, just before dark.  Arrived in Budapest nearly a full day late, thus shaving half of the cruise's time off this key attraction. Our Veranda was rendered virtually useless on four of the seven docking days because another ship was lashed to ours side-by-side, right up against our "balcony". Viking offered nothing to offset these unfortunate circumstances. Would not recommend.

NEVER book with VIKING. They know about the low water levels on the Danube for months and did not share the information in advance and then lied about conditions. They will not offer any type of refund, but rater a discount on your next cruise. This is of no value to me and I refuse to do business with companies who have absolutely not integrity.

Do not use Viking River Cruises

Don't hesitate to converse with the staff. They give wonderful advice and provide lots of helpful tips. However, be sure to come prepared for all personal health issues as there is not a medical staff on board and they don't have any OTC remedies available.
