Cruise was good. Leaving the ship was not.

Overall we had an enjoyable Danube river cruise, from Passau to Budapest, with a 3 day pre cruise stop in Prague. Danube water levels were fine and we had no issues going through the locks. Food was very good and plentiful, service was top notch. Boris, the cruise director was adequate although a little on the sarcastic side. The cabin was clean and roomy enough. On board entertainment was a ...

I have been on two other Viking river cruises over the last nine months so I had a pretty good understanding of what to expect. The service by the crew was excellent - it appears to be their trademark - all are well trained in excellent customer relations. The boat was a bit dated but was maintained well with a few exceptions. Meals were good - not outstanding but still very good for the most ...

The Castles and Legends Cruisetour was new this year, and I wanted to go from the first time that I read the itinerary. We very much enjoyed Munich and Salzburg before setting sail from Passau to Budapest. Transfers from airport to hotel to ship were seamless. Embarking and disembarking also went very well. The cabin was quite nice, and the onboard staff was polite, efficient, and helpful. Our ...

My wife and I took this Danube Waltz cruise as a thirtieth anniversary trip. We are first-time river cruisers. The Viking Prestige was a great ship, with more amenities than we expected. I'll start off with the only real issue we have with Viking and this trip: communication. It's not as good as it could be. Here's the prime example: The trip from the airport to the ship was uneventful up ...

Just returned from a Viking River cruise from Passau to Budapest. Overall a wonderful trip. We were in a cabin on the main deck. Very nice cabin with plenty of hanging space and drawer/cabinet space. You don't spend a lot of time in your room and many times you are docked next to another ship so we didn't miss having a balcony window. The half window was fine. Had an issue with a flooded ...

This was our first cruise of any type. We arrived when dinner was well underway and we were not especially impressed by our reception - we were somewhat hassled to get into dinner (they knew we would be late arriving due to the fairly long wait at Munich to be transferred which was not our fault or our choice). We were shown to a table where we were fortunate to be sharing with folks on our ...

From being met at the airport in Amsterdam, to being delivered to the airport in Budapest, the Viking experience was first class. We loved our cabin, the small community feeling of the ship, the coffee/capuccino machine! The tours were well coordinated and well timed, with enough but not too much time to see the key sites and have some leisure time in most places. The service was very good. ...
