I am a convert. A convert that is to “river” cruising. I have cruised on many ocean-going cruise ships and loved every one of them. So now, dispossess yourself of every notion you have about traditional ocean cruises, and let me introduce you to “river cruising.”
The VEGAS VOYAGERS travel club and FAIRVIEW CRUISE AND TRAVEL want to be the folks you think of when considering a river cruise. We are working closely with the good folks at VIKING RIVER CRUISES to bring you a river cruise experience you will remember.
In fact, at our last VEGAS VOYAGERS TRAVEL CLUB meeting, we had Shannon Tiger, District sales manager for VIKING RIVER CRUISES, give our members a presentation on all river cruising has to offer and the differences a river cruise presents to travelers.
First, think small. River cruise vessels hold up to 180 passengers. They are very intimate, and the pace on board is easygoing. The cabins are nicely appointed and comfortable. Dining rooms and public areas are much less hectic than large cruise ships. No kids. You must be at least 18 years old to river cruise on Viking. Cruise fares generally include wifi service, beer, wine, soft drinks, lunch and dinner, and shore excursions in each port.
Here is what I like best; there is always something to see out your window while river cruising. The banks of the river are only a couple hundred feet outside your window. As the vessel sails, your route has beautiful little towns, churches, and castles. It is never just an unending ocean to stare at. There is just something to see around every bend in the river.
Consider sailing along the Danube in Germany, Austria, and Hungary. How about a Rhine River cruise in the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland? These destinations and more are available when considering a VIKING RIVER CRUISE.
I am a river cruise convert for all the reasons stated, and I haven’t even mentioned the excellent onboard cuisine. Feel free to contact us to learn more information about river cruising. Our phone number is (516) 485-3200.
