Eastern Europe   2 , QLD, Australia, May 2023
Amazing cruise with exceptional views. A truly amazing trip from Bucharest to Amsterdam travelling with Viking. Definitely looking at other river cruises for the near future.
Fabulous trip through Europe   0 , TAS, Australia, May 2023
We have just completed a fabulous 3 week cruise from Bucharest to Amsterdam with Viking and could not be happier with the itinerary, the ship or its fantastic staff. The itinerary was packed with as much or as little as one required and there was absolutely no chance of getting bored! The included tours, particularly in the first week in Bulgaria, Serbia ...read more and Croatia were comprehensive and very enlightening. There was scope to look, in depth, at key political and historic aspects of the countries that we visited, or simply take in the views. The tour guides were tremendously informative and the cruise director on our ship, Viking Vidar, was peerless in his knowledge of the Rhine/Main/Danube Rivers and their respective histories. I feel as though I have learned so much and this was in spite of the fact that we had cruised from Bucharest to Amsterdam on a previous cruise!

The services on board the ship were excellent with no request too difficult for either the hotel or dining staff. The meals were fabulous and very well considered. We were fed really well, but we didn't roll off the ship in Amsterdam fearing exposure to rich food. There was always scope to eat "plain" food if desired and the access to fresh fruit and salads was exceptionally good.
The rooms were more than adequate. It would be really nice if the beds faced towards the side of the ship rather than along its length, but this was the only issue that we had with the room, which was excellently maintained and kept spotlessly clean and fresh whilst we were on board by our extraordinarily diligent room attendant. All up, we enjoyed a brilliant crise and we couldn't recommend Viking more highly.
A wonderful week of fun and relaxation   1 , WA, Australia, Jul 2019
Very well organised cruise with exceptional crew. We made many friends from Canada, Greece, South Africa and the U.S. Included excursions on the cruise were great. We didn’t sign up for any of the optional excursions as we wanted to enjoy the relaxation on the ship. The weather was hot so it was nice to come back to the air conditioning on the ship ...read more after a morning excursion. Meals on the ship were first class.
Sensational Holiday of a Lifetime     8 , NSW, Australia, May 2018
Our entire experience was without a hitch and more than what we could have imagined or expected. We knew we had a very high quality cruise ahead of us, but once we embarked on Viking Vidar at Amsterdam, we constantly exclaimed "Isn't this incredibly amazing". We felt we had really reached the pinnacle of exceptionally refined holiday living. Our suite ...read more was so well designed with every comfort considered. The overall style of the ship reflects quality in materials and design.

Going beyond the physical appearance and functionality of this superb craft, we were extremely impressed on a daily basis with our dining experience. The deliciousness and variety of meals we enjoyed were only improved and made even more enjoyable by the friendly and helpful staff and the company of our fellow cruisers. Our entire experience, including the initial reservation through to the hugely informative and exciting tours, included and optional, has left us with a great desire to relive it all in the future. It was seamless and pure enjoyment.
