Viking River Cruises | Update

Readers,

Here is an update from my Viking River Cruises sales executive.

Some great news below. We are really selling in 2011. Even our new boats coming out in 2012 are filling! What a year this has been. I do have some specials and some great news worthy items below. Also, by now you have seen our new “long boats.” Aren’t they beautiful!

We have some HOT DEALS below.

US LIFTS RESTRICTIONS TO EGYPT:

“The U.S. Department of State alerts U.S. citizens that, given the continuing improvements since the January 25 Revolution, the ordered departure status for the U.S. Embassy has been lifted as of April 29, 2011 and the U.S. Embassy in Cairo has resumed normal operations.” ….”This Travel Alert replaces the Travel Warning dated March 29, 2011. “

NO MORE CORKAGE FEE ON VIKING:

As of May, Viking will eliminate all corkage fees in the dining room. As you may not know, we encourage our guests to go and purchase wonderful bottles of wine in these great wine regions. If the guests drinks the wine in their stateroom, there was no corkage. However, if they brought a bottle to the dining room, we did charge a modest fee. This fee is now eliminated going forward. All the more reason to think about doing that wine group! Contact your local winery or wine person to think about doing a wine cruise group with Viking.

FREE WINE, BEER & SODAS IN 2011:

This year we are adding free Beer and Sodas to our FREE beverage list at dinner along with the Free wine. If you didn’t know we are also adding all these to lunch in 2012. And of course they will be free!

MORE TULIP DATES:

We recently just opened up some more Tulips & Windmill dates for 2012. This is one of our most popular itineraries and will go fast. In fact, a couple of these dates may have already been taken. If you were looking for a group next year on the dates below. Contact our group department ASAP.

3/22, 3/23, 3/31, 4/1, 4/9, 4/10
