Cities of Antiquity and the Holy Land: A delightful adventure

While we usually arrive early enough to explore our departure city before our cruise, we didn't do so this time. To our delight Viking provided exceptional excursions that were quite comprehensive, and we were able ...

12 nights in the Mediterranean on Viking

Viking has many things included for one price. We had a large family groupe (10) and Viking did well with that. The reason I say that is they are set up for couples and smaller groups. They have Wonderful service ...
