Viking River Cruise Program 2015

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any further information on Vikings 2015 launch, nothing on their web site yet?

Apparently mailings have been sent to past passengers & they have been taking bookings?

I saw a river cruise boat when I was in the Black Sea last year, I can't remember where it was so would be either Yalta or Odessa… It was a right dilapidated thing…

 

I wonder how you would get on if you were on a river cruise and you suddenly got the flooding that we have now…

I received the Viking River cruises brochure this week listing their 2015 program. If you have not got a copy give them a call and ask for one to be sent.

They certainly have RiverSong, mine was awaiting on our recent return from Oz.

Interestingly they haven't yet got a picture of my next Viking ship, the Hemming. It was only launched this month so I have had to make a representation in anticipation of my blog from the Douro...

Dont know if ive looked in all thr wron places but compared with an ocean cruise i think river cruises are expensive.

 

Ah, but are you comparing like-for-like?

 

Certainly Viking River Cruises offer a very superior product and for practicality sake the river cruise is all-inclusive.

 

Take a look...

does anybody know about the new viking ocean star for next year??

 

i think this is something im looking for :)

 

It certainly is.

 

I am booked on it for the Maiden season - not the Maiden Voyage though.

 

If it is anything like their River Cruises then it's going to be very good.

single rate

Hi  I haven't tried Viking River Cruises but as a solo traveller the cruise line charges a 100% single supplement which I refuse to pay, however, the travel agent suggested I tried Uniworld (more expensive for couples) but  I was quoted price which included a single supplement of only 25% making it significantly cheaper than their competitors.  If Viking's Ocean single supplement is 100% (I suspect it will be) I doubt whether I will be sailing with this line unless a special reduced single supplement late deal comes along.
