We sailed from Budapest to Passau, Germany. We have done many ocean cruises, but this was only our second river cruise, and our first with Viking. We chose the smallest stateroom, assuming we wouldn't be there very much. It turned out that, for some reason, the room was very, very noisy. We lost one night of sleep, the first night, due to the noise. When we complained (at about midnight, when ...

This would have been a five-star rating had we not had to switch ships. The possibility of such a switch needs to be brought to the forefront of discussions when booking with Viking. It appears to be quite common certain times of year, which should be cleary addressed. My wife has M.S. and this switch was difficult for hew, flying in the face of our choosing this mode of transportation (so we ...

We chose Viking's Budapest to Nuremburg River Cruise. We were on the same cruise as cpeverett in a review dated Sept. 2015. I echo the same comments without exception. Viking went over the top in accomodating our mid-cruise transfer from the Tor to the Var. The food was varied and of excellent quality. There was copious amounts too. The only additonal comment that I feel compelled to make ...

We spent the first half of our Danube cruise on the Tor then transferred to the Var as a result of the ship change due to low water levels. If we had been on the Tor all week this would have been a five star rating. The difference between the staff on the two ships was like night and day. The staff on the Tor was outstanding. They smiled, called us by our first names and couldn't do enough to ...

My husband and I joined some friends and we planned this River Cruise through Viking. A week before setting sail, we called several times to check on the possibility of having to change ships due to the Danube being too low to navigate. (other friends had taken the trip 3 weeks prior to us and they had to change ships). Once we boarded, we asked again and no one seemed to know. As it turned out, ...

I want to say upfront I did like it, but it was really not for my age group. I went with a family member who really wanted to go and not be alone. I personally prefer to have a private guide an/or see places on my own. That being said, there is no way we could have seen all of these places in 8 days! Overall Viking is VERY well run! Most are upper 50's- 80 years old. They really cater to ...
