River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Budapest
    Tue, Nov 19, 2024

    Riverside beauty and a vibrant cultural scene blend together in Budapest to form one of Europe's most rewarding cities. Hungary's enchanting capital straddles the banks of the Danube, with traditional hillside Buda on one side and modern Pest on the other. By day, astounding art nouveau buildings, stalwart castles and glittering palaces set the stage for awe-inspiring strolls and long soaks in thermal spas. By night, a nostalgic glow settles in as the city's lights dance on Danube waters, the Chain Bridge uniting it all as a dramatic centerpiece.

  2. Day 2
    Budapest

  3. Day 3
    Vienna
    Thu, Nov 21, 2024

    Renowned as the “City of Waltzes,” Austria’s capital city of Vienna is Europe’s center of classical music. Strauss and Mozart composed many of their finest pieces here. Vienna’s musical history is matched by the elegant, graceful architecture that lines the Ringstrasse, the wide boulevard encircling the Inner City. Baroque, neo-Renaissance, Gothic-Romanesque and other splendidly styled structures, from the Hofburg Palace to the Vienna State Opera, take the breath away with their grand facades. Vienna has a more intimate side too: inviting footpaths lead through green parks and its famed Viennese cafés sweeten any stay with coffee and the city’s delectable Sachertorte.

  5. Day 5
    Krems
    Sat, Nov 23, 2024

    A small university town at the eastern end of the Danube’s Wachau Valley, Krems is surrounded by terraced vineyards. In its heyday, during the 12th century, Krems held even more importance than Vienna for its iron, grain, salt and wine trade. As to the latter, the city has played a long and celebrated part in the popularity of the Wachau’s wine culture; the valley’s south slopes in Krems are bathed in sunlight all day and create some of the best Riesling and Veltliner wines in the world. The city’s cobblestone streets, taverns, wine bars and coffeehouses have a timeless appeal.

  6. Day 6
    Passau
    Sun, Nov 24, 2024

    Founded by the Celts over 2,000 years ago, Passau is one of Bavaria's oldest cities. Known as the "City of Three Rivers,” it rests at the confluence of the Inn, Ilz and Danube rivers. The city has long enjoyed its strategic position and grew to great economic and political power because of it. The legacy of its past prosperity lives on in graceful arcades, colorful houses with rococo facades and the glorious baroque St. Stephen's Cathedral, home to one of Europe's largest pipe organs. Passau is also where two nations meet; it is here that the German-Austrian border begins.

  7. Day 7
    Regensburg
    Mon, Nov 25, 2024

    Having escaped major damage during World War II, the picturesque town of Regensburg is one of Europe's best-preserved medieval cities, the oldest city along the Danube and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Old Stone Bridge, constructed in the 12th century, is a masterpiece of medieval engineering with its 16 arches. St. Peter's Cathedral is widely considered Bavaria's best Gothic architectural work. The Old Town's Neupfarrplatz square is a cross section of history-it was once a thriving Jewish quarter, a bustling marketplace and the site of Nazi book burnings.

This was our first River Cruise and it exceeded our expectations. Service on the ship was impeccable, from cleaning to dining. The local tour guides all spoke very good English, and although they sometimes gave us more history than we would remember, they were engaging and interesting. Busses were provided for city and optional tours and the drivers were incredible navigating huge busses through narrow streets. The cities on the itinerary were chosen well for their beauty and historical values. Altogether one of the best trips we have ever taken,

Viking did an excellent job. The trip was great. 

Great experience. We will do it again!

Absolutely wonderful staff! The kitchen staff, specially the chefs and sous chefs accommodated my son's food allergies. Thank you very much!

Most Excursion tour guides were excellent as were most excursions. However, I do not feel the excursion to Szentendre, Hungary, while in Budapest, was a good value. Though the ceramic museum was interesting, the guide nor the museum attendants were very knowledgeable and the whole experience was perfunctory. A cafe trip and a bit of free time and a dull bus ride were altogether not worth the price paid. I would have preferred a guided tour of The Parliament in Budapest. Definitely need to add that as an optional.

Although the trip was pricey, we found Viking to be very organized, gracious, and accommodating. They provided a complete experience, and included everything necessary for a pleasant experience, without hesitation or needing any provocation.

THIS TRIP WAS FANTASTIC. We did have one ship transfer because of low water but Viking handled this very seamlessly. The only thing that could be improved on would be a couple of the evening meals were marginal.
