    Iconic western Mediterranean

    Hi , this is great information, I really appreciate all the info.. we are looking at November 2019 for the trip, what is the general weather like at that time? We are oing from New York and would like to leave our winter coats at home - are layers doable? We are both hikers, walk at least 3-4 miles each day , would lIke to avoid buses if possible. Also, we plan on adding days to each end of the trip Thanks again for all the help Helene

    Iconic western Mediterranean

    Hi all, was wondering if any of you have taken the iconic western Mediterranean viking cruise- as of now we are booked for November 2019 and would love feedback, opinions, advice etc, we start from rome, thinking of adding two days, ending in Barcelona and adding 2 days on that end. This is our very first viking trip and would love any advice. Thanks
  3. Hi..My husband and I are looking to book our first Viking Ocean cruise - the Iconic Western Mediterranean - Rome to Barcelona - I've been looking for reviews but can't seem to find any - have any of you taken this cruise and if so, what are your thoughts? We were booked on the River Cruise but we are a bit concerned about the water levels - thanks for any opinions you can share. Helene

    First Viking Ocean Cruise.

    Hi everyone.... We are looking to book our first Viking Ocean cruise to Rome- Barcelona - the Western Iconic Mediterranean 8 day cruise. I'm looking for reviews on this and can't seem to find any. Have any of you taken this cruise? If so, what are your thoughts? We were booked on a River cruise for October of next year but switched it due to the water levels. Looking forward to your responses thanks.

    Air & hotels

    Hi, we booked the renaissance hotel in Amsterdam but it’s definitely a bit pricey, still searching for other hotels in the area. Also for the beginning of the trip we are staying in Basel

    Water levels on rhine

    Ha! Yes, I totally get it, an old almanac would definitely help,,, I’m sorry if I sound a bit on the panicking side, but after reading reviews and the cost, the last thing I want to do is spend my week on a bus, my thoughts now are maybe transferring my deposit to a Viking ocean cruise... this us a once in s lifetime trip for us, so I’m a bit cautious thanks again

    Air & hotels

    Hi, you’re right, they do have availability but I was looking on my chase portal and they are sold out on this. I think I’m going to keep searching since the price is a bit too high, any other recommendations? thanks again

    Water levels on rhine

    Hi, we are booked on our first river cruise next October, after reading reviews here we are getting s bit concerned about the water levels. Since we are spending quite a bit of money on this trip I’m worried now and do not want to spend my week on a bus, any advice on what the future holds? I realize it’s hard to predict but I’m nervous. Thanks

    Air & hotels

    Hi all, thanks for all your replies, so Im a bit confused, if we book accommodations through Viking in Amsterdam how far away would we be from the center? We are looking to book hotels on our own using points, but if Viking charges us for not going through them it might not be cost effective. Has anyone used Vikings accommodations?

We paid the extra $50.00 per person to have some input on flights. Also, any advice for anything else would be appreciated, thanks so much
