Our cruise was complicated by record low river levels in Europe. Instead of doing the entire journey on one ship we ended up on three ships with bus connections made to get us around the stretches of river where ships could not pass. The Viking staff did a great job of minimizing the inconvenience of the situation and ensure that we missed nothing in our original itinerary. I was very impressed by their professionalism and dedication to customer service. Our trip was still memorable and we would definitely travel with Viking again.

Great trip. A lot of boat time, but saw many beautiful sights during shore excursions. Food on-board was excellent, but would have preferred more local cuisine options.

The crew on the Viking Baldur did an excellent job of pampering us and on many occasions even anticipating our needs on our recent cruise. We were truly amazed at their focus on taking care of their guests. The food prepared was excellent at every meal, along with the many regional favorites that were prepared for the meals or at several of the informational seminars that were presented on board. The crew had to deal with several unplanned challenges during the cruise and did a great job of ensuring planned activities were not missed along with ensuring the safety of the guests during a passenger departure at an unplanned remote location.
