Default Viking River Cruise

Four of us are booked on the July15th cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. Does anyone have information regarding dress? Are shorts acceptable during the day, and how dressy at night? We are really hoping to travel light. Thanks.

Hi! My husband and I will also be on the July15th cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. We are from Bucks County in Pennslyvania.
I couldn't find many reviews since Viking Cruise Line is new. Look at their webpage and click on news. You can than download a powerpoint presentation that is a marketing overview, very informative. There is also a review on the news page.

Regarding Viking River Cruise - My wife (Carol) and I will be on the July 15th sailing as well - From Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.

A couple weeks ago I came across an excellent, 30-page write-up, by a lady who took a recent trip on the Vantage River Navigator, which sounds very similar to the upcoming Viking cruise. She starts in Prague, but by the 3rd day begins the cruise out of Budapest to Amsterdam. Here is the link, which I found most interesting and useful.


In case the link does not work, go to:

click on "Miscellaneous Reviews (river boats & barges)",
then on "Vantage River Navigator".

Hopefully we'll meet both Louise and Sparky on board!

Hi there! We're booked on the 8/16 Viking River Cruise from Amsterdam to Vienna. If you have a moment to share your trip impressions with us, we would be forever grateful. Especially interested in how warm it was & dress. They state in their travel tips - "No shorts allowed in dining room." We called & asked whether that meant walking shorts & Bermuda shorts & they said Yes! Can't believe that. Thanks for any help you can provide & hope you had a wonderful trip. Lisa S.

Dear Louise--

We took the Viking Provence cruise this past spring and loved every minute. I kept a travel journal which tells you everything you want to know about Viking: riverboats, cabins, crew, dress code (shorts during day are fine; elegant casual at night...men do not need ties or jackets). Let me know if you'd like a copy of the journal; I can attach it to an email.

We're doing the Viking Ams/Bud in September, so anything you can suggest when you return will be appreciated.

Bon voyage!
