It seems that the first thing I saw each time I watched an episode of Downton Abbey was a commercial for Viking River Cruises. I suppose advertising does work.
As we approach this thing called 'retirement', more thoughts of travel have come to mind. Although we're not big fans of cruising on the ships with 2000+ passengers, the Viking Longship, with capacity of about 200 passengers, seemed like something we might like. The Viking Lonsgships do not have casinos, spas, gyms, art auctions, and such. They're basically transportation to get you to your next destination. It's more about the destinations, getting to know the people on board, and of course, the food!
We decided on Viking's Rhine Getaway.
Day 1 - Basel, Switzerland
Day 2 - Breisach, Germany
Day 3 - Strasbourg, France
Day 4 - Heidelberg & Rudesheim, Germany
Day 5 - Koblenz, Germany
Day 6 - Cologne, Germany
Day 7 - Kinderdijk, The Netherlands
Day 8 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Looking forward to this!
