Pleasant low-key cruise on nice ship with great staff


We enjoyed the Viking River of Gold trip but would rate this a 3.8-4.0 versus other European river cruises. Sightseeing in Lisbon and Porto was pleasant and interesting but not at the level of other major capitals. ...

Cruising Portugal's wine country.

This cruise met our requirement to stay away from central Europe yet experience a part of the old world that we had not yet discovered completely. The air travel to and from overseas I could do without. Even though ...

More Bus Rides and Less River

The actual cruise is not like the other river cruises we took on the Rhine and Danube as except for Porto the places where we docked were of no interest, just small towns along the Douro. The actual trip starts ...
