We are Going Back!
Some of you have asked for another group Viking River Cruise, and here it is!  This time, we’ll be going on the beautiful and historic “Danube Waltz.” This is a Viking Anniversary Special! Your deposit is only $25 pp during the month of September.  AND you’ll also receive $125 pp off with this group sailing!  Past guests have even more discounts!  Each month, Viking has a different special.  Viking River Cruises are fabulous!  Last December, I led a group on the amazing “Christmas on the Rhine.” I also lead a group on “The Rhine Getaway” and another on the “Romantic Danube.”  I book couples and small groups on Viking as well.  On this cruise, The Danube Waltz, prices begin at $3299 pp for Category F staterooms.  (With the discount, that is $3174 pp.  Staterooms sell out quickly, so please deposit quickly!)  Roundtrip Airfare starts at $999 pp, depending on your departure city!  Trip Insurance available, as well. Please read on….

Your Viking River Cruise Details:

Viking Air Plus:
The Air Special for the month of August is $999 pp roundtrip from many gateways!  There is an add-on fee of $100 pp so Heather can work directly with the Viking Air Department to get the best air schedules and so you can fly with friends/family.  (Please ask to confirm your gateway pricing.)  With river cruises the cost for the air may change from month to month.  This is another reason to deposit early. On this cruise airfare includes all government air taxes/fees and fuel surcharges. Our group will be coordinated to fly together, if departing on the same date/departure city.  When using Viking Air, round trip airport transfers are included at your arrival and departure dates.  Air Miles may be used and booked on your own.
Please Note:  If arriving earlier and/or staying later than the cruise arrival and departure dates, your roundtrip transfers ARE included when using Viking add-on tours.  If self-touring, transfers are not included, but the address to your ship’s dock will be available.  Air Miles may be used and booked on your own.

A $25 pp non-refundable deposit is needed to secure your stateroom.  Your final payment date is based on the special of that month. For further information on cancellations, please see Terms and Conditions.
