Our link to the website doesn't seem to be working for this July 19, 2009 river boat cruise. Please know you should contact me directly at 1-800-842-1786 or my personal email at LonaLee@FriendlyCruises.com This River boat cruise itinerary is posted here in this thread as well. The river boat cruise is perfect for the back to back with the Baltic Crystal cruise between Copenhagen and Stockholm departing August 5.

Tell me more about the River Cruise going on July 19th - shore tours are included, is that correct? And, if so, do we get a choice or whatever the cruise line says - that's it?

Hello, HMS AnyShip
This River boat cruise goes from Budapest Hungary to Amsterdam for 14 nights and the ports of call along the way have tours included in the price. Viking is considering offering alternative shore excursions in certain cities but those alternative will only be known on board the vessel and they will not be in every city. They have not started it as yet but are "considering" doing that for 2009. I did this same trip and the quality of tours/guides and highlights they took us on were excellent. This Grand Voyage departs 19August, 2009. Will you be joing the group? Hope so!

This is a quick posting to ask anyone who might be thinking of booking both this river cruise and possibly the Baltic Crystal cruise which is just 3 nights after the river boat ends to put a quick private message to me or posting here just so I might get an idea of how many more of you who might be interested.

I'm doing some planning for air :flying: transfers and hotel stay in Amsterdam or Copenhagen.

Hi, Cruising Guy....
What questions might you have?

Did anyone tell you? We do have a requirement for anyone that goes on this river boat cruise with us. Did you know that? Before we can go we must all learn the song "Cruizin' Down the River..." this is so we can sing it together on board.

If you already know that part of the song you can just jump on board and we are off ... Let's go... cheers lol!

I've never sailed anywhere except the Caribbean. Can you tell me more about how a river cruise is different?

Hi, Kay RAy

The Caribbean Sea is a beautiful turquoise warm waters so wonderful for swimming and beach activities and warm sunshine! I bet you love these islands of the sun as I do. I will try to help you know what the river cruise will be like ... a different place in the world. Not for swimming except the hot tub maybe on the boat.

We will begin in Budapest Hungary, a country with so much political history, that has been overtaken by so many different rulers in it's history it now celebrates it's freedom and independece from communistic rule. Each country will be speaking their own language but English is well known through out the tourist areas. Our history books that we read in school become alive. WWII and European history.... I wish I'd studied more!

As we leave this European City we will see it's old world buildings and beautiful architecture on each side of us as we sail on the famous blue Danube river. We see Buda on one side of the narrow river and Pest will be on the other (Budapest). We sail under the mighty bridge that connects the two cities going past the markets and onto our next ports.

We will always have land close to us for our two week trip, always getting off with a tour motorcoach waiting to wisk us away to see the historical and interesting sites in each village along the way or walking into the near town. These are included in the price. We will have time to walk through these villages and stores all the way up the river seeing the different countries cultures along the way.

We will see castles, vineyards on the hills by the river, we see the flowers growing in the window boxes of the farm houses, the cattle and other animals grazing on the lush green fields along the way. Crops in the fields, cows in the corn Laughing all that stuff .. just know we always have something to see while we sail. Sitting on deck as we slowly sail up the river. Seasickness doesn't exist on the river! Smooth sailing... Active shore life touring.

I'm getting to long here.... Have you been to Europe, Kay RAy?

LonaLee, the tours look like they include a lot of walking. While I like to walk, my hip doesn't agree! Can you tell me a little bit about the excursions? Are they primarily buses and walking? I know the ship is only a few decks tall, but are there elevators? The pictures look like stairs, which I can tolerate, but hip does give out sometimes and more than one flight can be tough on me sometimes...

I think River Cruising is fun. I have fun exploring the different cities along the river where we stopped. Meeting new people is fun for me, too. I think this cruise will be fun with CruiseFreek folks on it!

Murphy, I'm checking to see if there is an Elevator on board this river boat, I expect there is but I must ask and will let you know. You are right, the excursions usually are motorcoach and walking but they do prepare and tell the guests before they go as to the difficulty or ease of the walking part and how close they will drop you off at a major site.
