  3. Viking Magni
This was my second river cruise and first Viking adventure. We ran into some difficulties due to the low water levels in the Danube. We had a change in our longship. We used the Baldur from Amsterdam to Nurenberg. We had all of our bags transferred a bus to take them to the Magi, which was docked in Passau. We were transported by bus to Passau accompanied by a guide, who discussed the points of interest along our way. We continued our journey to Budapest on the Magi. Both staffs and crews were very helpful during the trip and transfer. I enjoyed the special events arranged onboard, which included a glass blowing demonstration, wine tasting, strudel making, a discussion of how the locks work on the river, and the captain's party. I received special attention due to dietary needs. The menu was discussed each morning at breakfast so I could eliminate inappropriate choices. Special meal accommodations were made when required. We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely walking tours. The pace was suitable to our abilities and we were able to see all key point of interest. I especially enjoyed the local tour guides, who shared their knowledge of their town's history. I plan on taking more river cruises on the Viking longships. I enjoyed the walking tours of the towns and the views along the river. I really savored my experience.

What a Trip!
