We are considering a back to back cruise on HAL Nieuw Statendam which includes the fjords and Baltics OR a Viking trip (Empires of the Med, Lake Como to Athens) in August. We have cruised to the British Isles and the Med but never more than 12 days on ship and not to
Russia or Scandinavia. We have previously been to Athens, Venice & Santorini and words cannot describe how amazing they were. The Croatian ports would be new stops for us. My questions,
1. Any thoughts on 21 days on HAL’s new ship and the length of trip?
2. Vikings itinerary and ship experience?
3. And finally, costs being very close, which one would you suggest?
We are retired so have the time and I am thinking how very wonderful it would be to do either one of these trips! Thanks in advance for your kind responses🙂
