Global Morning News – Grand European Viking River Cruise

Posted on: January 9, 2024

Well airfare is sky high at the moment. In our agency we have all been doing a lot of travel planning for ourselves and we have been saying “ouch” when we see some of the pricing. This is particularly true of Europe. So when you see an offer for FREE AIRFARE – WOW – that’s very attractive.

This is a limited time offer to get you into Europe and do a river cruise (everyone is talking about river cruises these days).

This is one of the most popular river cruises that Viking Cruises offers and it fills up every year. Two weeks from Amsterdam to Budapest or vice versa.

I have said this before – this is one of the best ways to see Europe. Starting off in Amsterdam you get to travel down the Rhine past all the amazing castles. This was the medieval highway and the castles controlled access to the river by passing tolls for those who wanted to get their goods to market. Many stops along the way in cute little towns give you the opportunity to explore. What I love about river cruising is that there is a guided excursion in each stop along the way and this is included in your price.

Going down the Rhine you get to experience cities like Cologne and small towns like Koblenz – then on the Main River and the canal which will take you onto the majestic Danube. Visit Nuremberg which its World War II history and then on to Passau and Melk and of course Vienna. Beautiful city of art and music. Ending off the cruise you finish up in Budapest. A beautiful town built around the Danube. I just love Europe!

This special offer from Viking also includes airport transfers, wine and beer with lunch and dinner, speciality teas and coffees 24 hours a day and complimentary wifi.

In order to take advantage of this offer you need to book before the end of this month.
