As first time cruisers, we learned a lot and now know how to make our next cruise even better. We would highly encourage the pre-trip extension as we were too tired to completely enjoy our first day in Amsterdam. It is a very interesting ... Read more

We have been on a number of Viking River cruises in Europe, and in China; always enjoying their quality and high standards. So when it looked like a relatively safe time to visit Egypt, we knew we were in for a great adventure and ... Read more
