We wanted a long cruise where we could truly relax. The 15 day cruise was really great. We celebrated our 40th anniversary on board. We had beautiful weather and the shore excursions were very enjoyable. Our dining experience was very nice. We were well taken care of. The stop in Nuremberg was very moving. The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. Our director Marie was lots of fun. She kept us all entertained. The onboard staff operated like a well tuned clock. They anticipated our every need. The front desk helped us arrange a nice bike ride along the river that was very enjoyable. I would recommend this cruise to anyone wanting a relaxed cruise along 3 different rivers. The only thing I would recommend would be the serving of local wines. While we like Argentine Malbec at home in the USA and while traveling in Argentina, we did expect European wines would be served to us at dinner. Read Less

This was our first time cruising with Viking. It exceeded all expectations. The crew was phenomenal attention to detail is amazing we couldn’t of picked a better vacation. Two months after this cruise we booked another Viking cruise. The excursions offered are widely diverse. They give details of what will be done whether easy moderate or extreme hiking based on your day and how you feel it made it a pleasure to know what was in store for you. We found all of the crude to be extremely personable. And we loved the casual attire throughout the whole cruise very relaxing . Meal choices are are so numerous every pallet will be pleased specially liked the food choices within region . I’ve traveled all over Europe and I found this to be the most relaxing vacation I’ve taken . I highly recommend Viking! We are now spoiled and only see Viking in our future. Read Less

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with the Grand European tour. This is 15 nights. We went from Amsterdam to Budapest, but you can also book going the other direction. The Magni and it’s staff managed to be efficient and friendly while being both elegant and relaxed. The longships are well designed and comfortable. We were concerned that it would be difficult to make friends, however, the majority of people were open and friendly middle aged or better couples. There were a couple of honeymooners and multi-generational families with older teens, but everyone was mixing by the second week. We got to know lovely people from Australia, England, and parts of the U.S that we have not visited. The tables in the dining room are for 6, and the lounge areas are also, so it was not difficult to mix naturally. We also got to know people in our excursion group pretty well. We booked the air and a pre-cruise stay in Amsterdam, along with an optional tour. So glad we did! Viking staff took good care of us from the moment we arrived to claim our luggage at the Amsterdam airport. Our airline had lost my bag, and the Viking guide helped me talk with the mostly Dutch-speaking airline employee. It was delivered to our hotel that afternoon. When it was time to go home, an airline strike affected our plans, but the desk staff handled it for us, so we could enjoy our last day without worry. This was a wonderful, stress-free way to see many places and get a taste of the culture on a first-class floating hotel. Highly recommend. My only wish would be more outside dining space. The ports of call and included excursions ranged from enjoyable to amazing. Not all will suit everyone’s fancy, but we learned many new things each place we went. Lots of freedom to explore on your own as well. Read Less

This was our first experience with Viking cruises we chose the 15 day cruise through Europe vacation. The experience beginning with ease of booking - and information from my viking agent was superior. Every need was met.. greeted at the airport.. Quick service to the dock using purchased Viking transfers. The room was very nice with every amenity needed and the crew I can’t say enough about. All excursions choice we’re excellent Allowing for all degrees of walking abilities from strenuous too easy I highly recommend a Viking cruise experience… But be warned you will be spoiled treated like a king or queen and not want any other vacation cruise line. It has been three months since our return and we have chosen to book the Viking ocean cruise beginning in Spain during the Mediterranean. Food choices on a river cruise or superior I have no complaints about a single item went wrong !! Read Less

We had been thinking about a river cruise for some time. We travel a good deal but have been tiring of the pack/unpack routine between destinations and were looking for a trip where we could relax and let others make the plans. We could not have been more pleased! From the beginning of the trip until the end we felt pampered. Our flight over to Amsterdam was uneventful and had no trouble meeting our Viking representatives at the airport. With just the two of us, we were a little apprehensive about making friends but that immediately disappeared as we gathered as a group to head to the ship. By the end of our cruise I don't believe that there was anyone on board (staff included) that we had not met. And now, we have a new group of lifelong friends. Our cabin was ready when we arrived so we immediately settled in. Our expectations for the ship, cabin and community spaces were already set high but, upon arrival, they exceeded our expectations. The food quality, quantity and presentations were over the top. Unfortunately so much so that we both gained weight! One of the things we enjoy is interacting with the staff and we learned so much about their different cultures which added to our overall experience. We were always greeted with a smile...not to mention our Cruise Director who was exceptionally prepared, always seemed to be in form from the time we awoke until retiring, and made every effort to insure a grand experience. Being two of the younger guests we were a little apprehensive about the excursions and activities. Once again we were pleasantly surprised to find that there were a variety of tours and activities geared to different fitness levels, so we selected activities that met our own. Each port was well selected with plenty to see, and our tour guides helped to fill in the blanks. We hope that this is the first of many future Viking river cruises! Read Less

We have created a lot of unforgettable memories and we are looking forward to many more cruises with Viking Lines in the future. Read Less

Vacationing on a river cruise is somewhat like an ocean cruise, but in some ways very different. Viking cruise is top notch. Very refined, luxurious experience. The Danube has so much history and activities to offer! Extra stay in Budapest was amazing - the prettiest city I’ve seen at night (and that includes NYC, LA, DC, Chicago, Seattle, among others)The included excursions were great, and the extra excursions available were very well done also. Our cruise director (Wes) was fantastic and did a great job of advising us on things to do. He wasn’t afraid to tell us the excursions or things to do that he didn’t like as much, and made the entire experience so much fun. Food was incredible, with a wide selection of American and local foods. Staff onboard was exceptional. Awesome people we met on the cruise, and since there were less than 200 passengers, we got to know them better - and still in touch with several of them! It is a bit pricey, but well worth the investment for a vacation. Read Less

I selected this cruise because all the ports were places I had never visited before. I was AMAZED at how smoothly everything ran. Form the moment we arrived at the boat it was like being greeted by family. They were ready for us, no long lines to check in. Our concierge learned our names and greeted us by name daily. Every tour guide was exceptional! They were knowledgeable, funny, as well as courteous and considerate. And the staff on the ship - well I really can't say enough about how wonderful they were! The meals were so delicious and I really appreciated the self-serve coffee/tea/water station with snacks. Loved that we could choose between fresh fruit or homemade cookies! I also appreciated that the food changed and offered regional selections as we traveled across countries. Viking thought of everything and I felt so cared for! I loved it so much I already booked another Viking cruise! Read Less

We had heard nothing but positive reports from friends who have traveled with Viking and since it was my husbands first cruise ever, thought what Viking offered would be an ideal starter for him. It more than met our expectations from the moment we entered the ship. The attention to details from taking our luggage to our cabin, the dinning experience even offer us a lunch since we embarked a bit earlier than 3 p.m. Never felt "rushed" and yet everything was very prompt. The entire crew, was respectful, helpful, conversational but not intrusive. We enjoyed every shore excursion and those too were well planned with excellent guides. One could fill up their day as much as desired or utilize the included excursions and then have time to explore on ones own or just enjoy some relaxing time on deck. Even when we were cruising down the river during daylight hours, the Cruise Director provided information about what we were seeing and the history involved. The whole trip was very educational and for two history lovers we, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As a matter of fact, enjoyed it so much we've booked another cruise for this Fall. Read Less

We had never gone to this part of Europe and we love sailing with Viking. Everything about the whole trip was fantastic, We got upgraded to a suite which was a very nice surprise. Everyone on the cruise was in the same mindset,,,out to have a wonderful time. The food was fantastic and the service was beyond compare. I have some health issues and did not feel like going to dinner a couple of times. When our waiter found out he insisted on bringing me a tray so I would not go hungry. The excursions are always top notch but sometimes a bit much for someone with disabilities. The entertainment was especially nice on this cruise, a duo that was very talented. If you have never cruised with Viking this is a trip you should take. It is not for children or people that need casinos, bright lights and lots of shipboard activity. If yo want to enjoy the scenery at a slower pace and learn something about what you are seeing in luxury, this is the line for you. Read Less
