Default Viking River Longboats

Viking River Longboats
by Paul Motter

The latest design in riverboats from Viking River, the "Longboats" are spacious, high-tech and fully complemented.


The high-tech glass bathrooms walls make sightseeing easy

River cruising has become the fastest-growing segment of the cruise industry - particularly in Europe, with so many famous sites along the banks of the Danube, Rhine, Seine and other waterways. Among the contenders are AmaWaterways, Avalon and Grand Circle Cruises. But probably the most well-known line, especially to the U.S. audience, is Viking River Cruises.

I just completed a Christmas Markets cruise on the line's Viking Njord, sailing the Danube from Budapest to Passau, Germany -- a seven-day trip with stops for local tours every day. All the daytime tours I took were included in the price of the cruise - one of the main selling points for river cruises. Some optional tours were also available at an extra cost to special places or events.

Paul my wife and I just received a brochure and DVD from Viking. I have a few questions for you. Did u find the weather chilly in winter or not so bad? Is wifi free if u have an iPad? And finally did u eat lunch onboard, I figured you would be out on the town during lunch.
