We wanted to see Central Europe and experience the great cities and countryside along the Danube, Main and Rhine. We were not disappointed. We loved the daily included tours that gave us a wonderful overview of the people and cities. Being near the center of the cities when docked also provided an opportunity to explore on foot on our own. My wife was particularly thrilled with the Organ recital in Passau and the Mozart/Schubert concert in Vienna as she is a pianist/organist. Wow!!! The service was great -- and the size of the ship gave the opportunity to really get to know the crew as well. Food and entertainment was super. We started with a pre-trip with Viking in Prague so we got to know about 18 people who went on with us to Budapest, etc. It really enriched the experience and we formed the Praha Group that is still in communication back in the States. My mother's parents both came from the Czech Republic so the pre-trip was especially enriching for me. Read Less

My husband and I had never been to Europe so we chose this cruise to get an overview. Our son and his wife did this cruise for their honeymoon and recommended it to us. The ship was beautiful, sleek and clean. Our cabin was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff was courteous and friendly. By the second day, several staff members already knew our names. The food was varied and delicious for each meal. We enjoyed trying food and wine that was unique to the area and country we were visiting. The excursions gave us a unique view of the town we were in especially because our tour guides were from that specific town. There was nothing that was negative about our 15 day Grand European Cruise. We would also like to experience an ocean cruise with Viking. Our experience was so positive, we will definitely travel with Viking again. Read Less

The idea of confort and quality expected. Over all the trip was very good, but we need more time a shore, to visit some locations like salzburg, and Munich. Some of the local guides did have issues with racism which came clearly out with me as a hispanic black american in Budapest and some small towns in Germany. A tour guide lady did not to accept me because I was not part of the group and some of the people in the group had to verify to her that I was in the group, that was a little offensive, although I do not have a hyper sensitive behavior about the color of my skin, just because it is not part of mentality to feel like and outsider any where I am. The best experience of the trip was the staff a board the boat, service, food, music and activities in addition to the fact of the size of the group which allowed to a more social interaction with other travelers.
