I choose this cruise because I wanted to see Vienna but more so Budapest. We did add the Budapest extension and really loved Budapest and all we saw on our own. Viking hypes it's cruises as being the best but my past experience on another line was far superior. From the first day there were disappointments. Docked outside the city in Passau and had to use a bus to go into town. The room was ...

This is our 2nd Viking river cruise so we had very high expectations. Viking can not help that the river was low but there should have been advanced warnings. The staff did their best to accommodate for this inconvenience. Also the offer of 25% off for the next cruise is not enough to compensate for having to change hotels within Budapest, the poor evening meal at that hotel and ...

Having taken two previous river cruises with a different line, we were under the impression that Viking were the top line to sail with so booked a week on the Budapest to Passau Danube Waltz. We travelled with friends and opted for two nights in Budapest at the Hilton on the Buda side. The hotel and location were perfect and we enjoyed our time in Budapest very much. However, when it came time to ...

Saw the ads on TV and thought it would be a nice thing to try. It took us 3.5 hours to straighten out our flights that had been booked by the company. When we arrived, we were treated very well. There was a young lady that met us at the airport and directed us to a bus. When we arrived at the port, we were on a very old boat and was told that we would have to transfer to another one. The boat ...

Greeted at the airport as designed, to bad about the bomb scare, that was only a minor indication of what was to come!! Made our way to the Prague Marriott downtown, a very nice hotel, and greeted by the viking staff on arrival - room was ready because we paid for the day previous. Keep in mind if you are flying in from NA, you'll likely be on a red eye - we were - and you won't get into your ...

Major problem exist with the Viking representative, she was not informed or had never taken the cruise we took. The information we had stated there was an elevator in the ship (There was not). There was no considerations for the Handicapped in a wheelchair anywhere during the ports and tours. The agent stated there should be no problem. In Southern Germany; while I quickly took my wife to the ...

We arranged our own air and arrived in Prague a day earlier than the scheduled 2 free nights from Viking. The hotel was a Hilton, OK for a large hotel; a little out of the way from old town. We took taxis in to town on our own instead of the Viking tour. Prague is a magical, fairytale city with lots to see and do. We did do the Lobowicz Palace tour and lunch through Viking. We had a great lunch in ...

I loved river cruising. The best times were spent in the front of the boat watching the world sail by. The stateroom was well appointed and the bathroom sufficient-the shower was large by European standards. The bed in single staterooms is quite hard, but my room attendant did her best to make it more comfortable. I would recommend the itinerary,saw so much and enjoyed most of the shore ...

My wife and I are both retired and have taken up cruising again after several years of raising a family. We booked the Viking Prestige in order to be on its maiden voyage in June, 2011. We did a two day pre cruise stay in Amsterdam at the Radisson which was fun. The embarkation went smoothly. Unfortunately, Viking has problems that need to be corrected. First, the bathrooms flood due to hair traps ...

This was a birthday present for my 60th birthday and something I always wanted to do. My family sent myself and my husband on a Danube river cruise on the Viking Prestige. My husband wasn't that keen as doesn't enjoy organised trips and finds cruising a not particularly sustainable holiday choice but agree to go. He was also concerned that it would not be active enough for us, The trip was ...
