Explore Europe at 2-For-1 Prices

Viking River Cruises Offers Deluxe Cruises Through Europe’s Heart From Just $94 Per Night

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ — Viking River Cruises offers value-conscious travelers a new way to discover Europe with 2-for-1 pricing. On select dates, cruises highlighting Germany and Austria start at only $94 per night. Visitors explore key tourist sites while avoiding high-season crowds, and get extra value for their dollar with river cruises that include gourmet meals and daily tours with English-speaking guides. Travelers can choose from sailings offered in November and December 2005, including the “easy-air-access” roundtrip Frankfurt to Frankfurt 7-night itinerary or the Vienna to Nuremberg (or reverse) 7-night program.

Great Value Pricing with Walk-into-Town Access

Unlike ocean cruises, river cruises offer an up-close journey through the heart of Europe, featuring both cosmopolitan cities and stops at smaller villages along the way. With only 150 passengers on each deluxe ship, travelers relax in an intimate, friendly environment and get “walk-off-the-ship” access when they dock right in the heart of town. Vessels feature all-outside cabins, each with a private bathroom, phone, TV and climate control. Onboard amenities include a restaurant, lounge, sun deck, bar and library. Included gourmet meals onboard feature regional specialties as well as American favorites.

Packages include tours with English-speaking guides

To further stretch travelers’ dollars, each day features a new port of call, complete with an included tour. On select dates, visitors can also shop at traditional Christmas markets (from the third week of November – December 24), where they can shop for one-of-a-kind, handmade crafts.
