  1. The Atla was stuck on the Budapest end and the Jarl Nuremberg. We are cruising into Budapest this morning on the Jarl on an uninterrupted trip from Nuremberg. We were prepared to change if we had to, but it was smooth sailing all the way. Viking did a great job and I love their staff! Jarl and Atla are sister ships so there is no real difference.
  2. Still on the Viking Jarl. Krems today, no change to itinerary. The river is good.
  3. We are are on the Viking Jarl, left Nuremberg on Sunday. Regensberg today. Rain all along the river. Right now it looks like we might make it all the way to Budapest. Markets are lovely, all you need is a raincoat and umbrella.
  4. Happy to share. Planning for a good time no matter what Mother Nature has in store. Christmas Markets are beautiful. I’ll post next week.
  5. Leaving for Europe tomorrow, still praying for rain we are supposed to be on the Viking Alta Nuremberg to Budapest Romantic Danube departing Dec. 2. Any updates appreciated.
  6. Well we got the dreaded email today from Viking. No plans to allow this to ruin my vacation. My friends and I decided to get snacks and wine before we board, so if we get bussed we will make our own party. It’s a bit disappointing, but try as I might I can’t control the weather. So we will have a good time and roll with whatever happens.
  7. I’m looking forward to your report of the trip. Since we leave on the Alta on 12/2. I did this same cruise in 2012 and Viking does a great job. I hope you can enjoy your trip. Safe travels.
  8. Shoot, I’ll pray for rain too. Regensburg is lovely. Enjoy!
  9. My cruise on the Alta actually leaves on 12/2. I have a private tour booked in Budapest and my tour guide tells me the boats are getting to Budapest. Fingers-crossed for both of us. I’ll look for your updates. Have a great trip.
  10. Scheduled on the Viking Alta Nuremberg to Budapest on November 29. Anyone have any information on the Viking Daube Waltz?

    Viking Odin

    Hi, I'm traveling on the Viking Odin on 12/1/12. I'm curious, does anyone know the boarding time in Budapest and what time I can expect to be off the boat in Nuremberg on 12/8/12. I'm trying to arrange car service and can't find this information on the Viking page. Thanks

    i'm sailing on the Odin 12/1 Romantic Danube. You have shared a lot of very good information and answered many of my questions. Thanks
  14. I was actually trying to find out if anyone had purchased before and if they felt it was worth it. The cost is $30 per day per person which is not a lot. Also, it's not clear to me that if I want a bottle of water, soda or juice in the middle of the day that that is included as free beverages. Looks like only free at meal times with the exception of coffee and tea. A bottle of water is 2.20 euros. Just curious as this is my first river cruise and on ocean cruises everything is extra.
