Danube Viking River Cruise

Recommended Posts

We just booked an 8-day Viking River Cruise departing June 21st from San Diego, CA. The ship is the "Freya" and travels the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest. This is our first cruise and we're hoping for a wonderful cruise experience. We were not interested in a large ship with thousands of passengers, since we're senior citizens and enjoy a somewhat slower pace. We do, however, enjoy traveling and visiting new and interesting places. Our only other European experience was in 1986. We spent a month traveling from Germany through Switzerland and then 3 weeks in Italy!


We would appreciate any feedback on some of the protocols of cruising, such as tipping or any other useful info.

Hi there.


This part of the forum is for the new Viking ocean cruising, rather than their existing river cruises. You should post in the River Cruise section ( http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=191 ) where you can get all the help/advice you need.


Having said that, we loved river cruising in Europe and we're sure you will enjoy your trip. :)
