We have sailed on both Viking River and Viking Ocean ships, which we have enjoyed a great deal. When we saw the itinerary for this trip we decided to go. We are very glad that we did, because we had the most wonderful time. The ports of call were all amazing. We saw and learned a great deal at each stop. All the tour guides were excellent and we especially found the tour guide for the Schonbrunn Palace to be exceptional. There were many highlights of the trip, but two I would like to mention was the Mozart and Strauss concert we attended in Vienna and sailing through the Wachau Valley. We found the service on the ship to be excellent. We were met at Munich Airport by Viking representatives and were brought to the ship promptly, where our cabin was ready for us, and lunch was being served. The wait staff in the dining room was very attentive, the bar staff was top notch and our cabin was kept spotless. Even though we had a substitute program director he did a great job. The hotel director went out of his way to make sure the guests had a good time. We met many nice people and enjoyed dining with them. We found the food to be good. A nice touch was there was coffee and tea service available all day long. In the evening there was a pianist in the lounge and there was an occasional evening activity. The reason why I did not give this trip a 5 star rating was that we have sailed Viking in the past and found the Viking Legend did not have some of the amenities the other ships have. We missed the Aquavit Terrace and the food choices that were available there. We also found that the ship was in need of some updating in that we saw carpets that were worn and needed replacement. We also missed the heated bathroom floors. Before sailing, many fellow passengers received notice that the water level on the Danube was low, but we never received this e-mail. On day 6 of the cruise we were informed that the water level was too low to sail into Budapest and we would have to dock about 45 minutes away and would be bused into Budapest. We were disappointed we would not be sailing into Budapest at night, as we heard this was an amazing experience. Due to many passengers having early morning flights back to the USA, and the ship was docked a distance from the airport, Viking put a number of passengers on the last night into a hotel in Budapest. We were one of the people put into the hotel and I have to commend Viking for how they handled the situation. Even though we had to pack a day earlier than planned and say goodbye sooner to friends we had met, Viking placed us into a very nice hotel, provided a buffet dinner and had a bagged breakfast ready for us in the morning. In the morning the program director was at the hotel making sure we got on the buses safely to get to the airport. In summary we enjoyed our vacation and great deal and hope to sail on Viking again.

I've always wanted to take a Viking River Cruise and was finally able to check it off my bucket list this September. I'd heard many great things about them and wasn't disappointed. The service was impeccable, the food delicious, the cabin extremely comfortable. There was always a snack available (a selection of coffees and teas from the beverage station, fresh fruit, fresh cookies) and there was always something going on. The nightly entertainment was pleasant, the selection on the television varied (not that we watched much). I loved the policy of unassigned seating, which gave you a chance to meet other cruisers. We did meet a great couple and had most of our meals together, with a revolving cast of characters each meal. Although we didn't sign on for any of the "special" (additional cost) land tours, all of the tours except one (in Passau) were wonderful and told you a great deal about the port. I would highly recommend this or any Viking River Cruise. The Danube was at historic lows and there was the fear that we might not be able to cruise to each of the ports (Passau, Linz, Krems, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest), they cut short our stop in Bratislava to ensure we could cruise to Budapest because of low water levels. The staff was fantastic and personable and would do anything to enhance your cruise experience. It was a bit expensive but I would definitely go again for a special occasion. Read Less

We have had two ocean cruises on the small motor sailer Winds tar. Outstanding. We expected similar experience from the heavily advertised Viking Danube cruise. This was another low water summer, but we were lucky. We did not have to change ships. We were unlucky in that we were docked three ships abreast turning our stateroom into a dark cave most of the time. I gather this is often the case. Our balcony was not a balcony. It was a sliding window. We had one day of no a/c. We had fumes overpowering us when our neighboring ships exhaust lined up with our intake. Passengers were ill and no one could stay in their staterooms. Another half day, no water. Throughout this, no information disseminated to the passengers who finally had a harsh confrontation with the ships steward. Tours were adequate, with a couple exceptions...biking in Wachau Valley was fabulous and could have been twice as long. Dining was in a dreary room, never outside. Food was good but menu choices repetitive. Passengers were surprisingly underdressed in the evening, many in their shorts and tees from the daytime. Don’t bother taking much in the elegant casual realm. The demographic was quite frail on the whole and the day trips labeled active were only moderate. Read Less
