Dissapointing but still a memorable trip.

Visiting Parts of Europe that i had not visited before sounded very exciting. Unfortunately the cruise up the Danube was not as enjoyable as i had hoped. The food and service on the Freya was excellent, but the view from the boat at some of the stops was disappointing. For example at one of the stops the view from our cabin was a concrete batching plant. Other stops were usually not up to ...

This is the perfect way to tour multiple cities in Europe without having to pack and unpack at different hotels. Every meal is included in the price. Great scenic cruise through the Wachau Valley and the Danube Narrows. Budapest and Vienna were great. Some excursions were too strenuous for persons with walking difficulty, especially Salzburg where a long hike across town was required for some ...

This was my first experience with any kind of cruise and first visit to Europe. The prior experiences of a friend who had been on 4 of these river cruises with Viking was the main reason I booked this once-in-a-lifetime trip with my sister. I felt the Viking organization in all facets to be excellent: the ship and its crew, the dining, the land excursions including city tours were ...

We chose this cruise because of our general interest in central Europe and boy did we see a lot of it! The sunset harbor cruise in Budapest was a fantastic way to get started. The city is just stunning when seen from the river at night. The lights on all of the buildings and bridges were magical. The cruise itself was great. Both the food and the way everything was organized were ...

I had been wanting to go to Europe for a long time and when my in-laws asked me if I wanted to go on a river cruise with them I didn't hesitate. The staff from Viking Freya meet us at the airport and transported us to the ship in time for lunch. The ship was very nice and the public places, especially the lounge were comfortable. I liked the Aquavit Terrace and the upper deck with the shuffle ...

Danube River cruise was on our bucket list. Viking made it a fantastic experience. Every excursion was new and informative. The service was outstanding. We loved the tour director and his daily talks. I can't say enough of how great our time aboard the Viking Freye. We had paid for a lower cabin level but we were upgraded to a higher level. It was a pleasant surprise but we would have been just ...

My wife and I wanted to try a river cruise. We have visited Paris a few times and we wanted to be able to visit a few different European cities and countries in one trip. We booked a cruise on the Viking Freya from Budapest to Nuremberg. This was a memorable trip. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The dining was outstanding (5 stars); they were able to accommodate our different diets and ...

We enjoyed our first cruise with Viking so much we wanted to another one and this had places we wanted to see. We like the idea of unpacking once but getting to see many different cities and countries. The excursions are informative and well planned. Every meal on board was delicious and the service wonderful. All the staff were curtious and helpful. I like that we could choose a less expensive ...

This was our first River cruise. We started with a stay in Prague for a few days prior to our cruise. It was wonderful. The cruise concierge was so helpful and offered suggested tours of the beautiful city. Viking takes care of your every need. We boarded our ship at Nuremburg and took a tour of the city with an emphasis on WWII and the trials. The cruise itself was fabulous. Beautiful ...

Without question, our Romantic Danube River Cruise was the most enjoyable and memorable vacation we have experienced. From the moment we arrived in Budapest to our departure in Nuremberg, every detail was handled with grace, professionalism, and attention to detail. One piece of luggage did not arrive with us. The crew worked all evening and into the night to ensure the bag was at our door the ...
