Ship Facts: Viking Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Pride Deck Plans
Holiday Markets
My wife lived in South America when she was young, her father was an oil field engineer. My father was career military and we both traveled a lot as children and as young adults.

We wanted to go to Europe but did not want to pack get on a bus and travel to a new city every day. We did not want an ocean cruise because we both get sea sick very easily. We did want to be pampered a bit and see some places neither of us had been to before.

The choices were:

at least 10 days long

to stay in one place and take day trips or a river cruise.

Then we set a budget and researched the different river cruise lines and the cruises they offered. We then settled on the time of year we would travel, then researched the river cruise lines again to see which ones matched our dates and budgets. To our surprise Viking had it all and did not nickel and dime us a lot. There were some extra money spent for special excursions but not a lot. We also had to pay for our airfare; but the fair through Viking was better than I could get my self. The weather was a bit cold for us, being from the San Antonio area. But we really enjoyed the entire experience. The new places, the snow, the cold, exploring, meeting new people, shopping, food, the ship, the crew, and everything else I may have left out, it was great and we might just do it again. But we have just been informed we will finally be grandparents and may not want to be gone that long.

The airline lost one bag and would not deliver it to the ship. They contacted us when we got home and delivered it the first night we were home.
