Thanks to a great sponsorship of Downton Abbey and an aggressive mail campaign, Viking River Cruises is virtually a household name. They have launched many river ships (mostly in Europe) in the last several years and have become the industry’s most recognized leader. The experience of docking right in the heart of quaint communities, or famed European capitals along the river, makes for a wonderful sightseeing vacation. These river cruises also include shore excursions at each port, as well as wines & beer at lunch and dinner so the value is tremendous!
Building on this success, Viking decided to bring their ‘river’ concept to ocean itineraries and they launched Viking Ocean Cruises last year. The Viking Ocean ships have all balcony accommodations and, just like their river sister company, they include a shore excursion in each port AND they include wines & beer with lunch and dinner, as well. They carry only 930 guests and they have garnered only outstanding reviews in their short history, thus far.
This unique and popular company literally has something for everyone interested in cruising, be it river, or ocean. So it’s easy to see why we are so excited to share all this information at our upcoming Viking Cruises Event next week! Laurie Smith of Viking Cruises will be the guest speaker and she’ll share what is new with both river and ocean, as well as the latest special offers!
