Christmas Markets of Germany
"My daughter and I just returned from a wonderful week visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany on the Viking Long ship, Var. After a little blip in air travel plans with Air Canada connections delayed to Toronto,..."Read More

Only been on one cruise before and that was on an enormous Royal Caribbean ship in the Caribbean which we didn’t enjoy as too many people, too impersonal, and all dockings were at awful ugly tourist trap towns like Ocho Rios in Jamaica where we couldn’t get off the ship because of fights in the streets and the dirty Cozumel in Mexico. This cruise on the Viking Var was exceptional. There were ...

The cruise was the Romantic Danube with an extension in Prague. Viking representatives took care of everything from the moment we got through customs in Budapest. The towns and cities visited were great. The optional tour in Vienna for the Mozart concert was terrific and not to be missed. The ship was spotless. The crew members were polite and always helpful. Food was excellent and the dining ...

Always wanted to see Christmas markets in Germany/Austria. Saw an email three months prior to the trip with pricing offer that seemed too good to pass up. Have done several ocean cruises in Europe - this was our first river cruise. We really enjoyed the slower pace, the ease of walking right to the center of town from our ship (unlike ocean ships where you sometimes must get transportation from ...

We loved the ports of call and activities on this cruise! The staff could not possibly have been more friendly or service oriented, although this was more so on our first boat (we had to change boats due to low water levels). The food was outstanding, and we greatly enjoyed all our tour guides. Thee was a problem with the AC control in our room one evening, and the response from the young lady ...

Just what we were looking for. We needed to get out of town during that time and this provided a no fuss way to do it. During the trip we had no worries or concerns about transfers, baggage, meals or entertainment. The necessities were taken care of seamlessly and the added value was extraordinary. The ship was spacious and clean, I never felt crowded or 'herded' as I have on other trips. I ...

This was our first experience with a river cruise and we are already booked for another this summer. We enjoyed the guides, the meals and meeting new friends. We loved the laid-back atmosphere and especially valued the day we spent simply cruising the Danube gorges. We found Nuremberg to be a fascinating historical stop. We also found Regensburg to be a historic gem. Budapest was a trip favorite ...

I had never been to Europe & had always wanted to go. A friend and I saw a 2 for 1 add for the Danube Cruise. We called Viking & booked; I was surprised at how easy it was. Our booking agent kept in contact with us for the entire 8 months to keep us up to date with everything. What was most impressive was how attentive the staff was from the very beginning (picking us up at the airport) to the ...

We had our first river cruise in 2017, a Viking Rhine cruise, and were so impressed with the way Viking looks after you from the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave. We returned this year for their Romantic Danube cruise. We were a little apprehensive as last year we were on the Viking Hild, which at that time was only about 3 weeks old. So we were not sure whether the Viking Var would ...
