2015!!! You’ve got to be kidding! Try to get someone to book a cruise for 2015 when we’re barely through the first half of 2013?
Well, our Viking Cruise sales representative – you know the line
known for their river cruises and for advertising on the show we can’t wait to start again, YES, “Downton Abbey” — stopped by today to remind us that their ocean cruises start in 2015 AND they are already selling quite well! Taking their mostly inclusive concept (i.e. soft drinks/wine/beer included with lunch and dinner PLUS a guided excursion in each port of call, FREE wi-fi, and port charges/government fees included) to ocean cruises is a “slam-dunk” in my book. All the ocean cruisers that have fallen in love with river cruising’s
simplicity and value now have a no nonsense, easy to budget for, destination-oriented alternative on the oceans. And with a little over 900 guests it will still be a fairly intimate atmosphere when compared to a ship of 2500 passengers! So get your calendars out and give us a call if you’re thinking about Europe 2015! And if you’re not, then perhaps you should!
