August 6, 2018 – Introducing Viking River Cruises

On August 3, 2018, iDeal Vacations completed their Viking Foundations in River Cruising Specialist certification. We are beyond ecstatic as this gives us an opportunity to offer our Vacation Families luxurious River Cruises rich in culture with exceptional value with the Most Awarded River Cruise Line out there. Not to mention the expansion in the world market travel it brings.

For those new to River Cruising, especially river cruising with Viking, here is what you can expect. Exceptional Value!! Yes, I said it again and that is because it is so true. With every Viking River Cruise you find exceptional value in their all-inclusive offerings, their exclusive Privileged Access, and their unmatched Viking Quality. Included in every River Cruise you will find: 

  • A complimentary shore excursion in every port of call
  • Enrichment lectures and destination performances
  • Visits to UNESCO sites
  • All meals and drinks with lunch & dinner (including beer, wine, and soft drinks)
  • 24 hour complimentary coffee, teas, and bottled water
  • Complimentary wi-fi
  • All port fees & taxes

Plus, when air fare is purchased through Viking you will receive deeply discounted airfare with complimentary ground transfers. There are no surprises when booking a Viking Cruise.

With Viking River Cruises you will have access to more itineraries worldwide, giving you more destinations to choose from. In many of these destinations you will have access to museums, private collections, and after hour events not offered by other river cruise lines. In addition, add to your cultural enrichment by enjoying an exclusive home visit in select destinations. This allows you to visit with a local family in their home giving you unique, up close and personal cultural experience.

So what makes the Viking River Cruises so unique? Beyond what is mentioned above, they offer what they refer to as their Viking Quality. Part of this offering comes from their smaller, more intimate boats, their variety of choices, and a no worry, pleasure filled experience. But what makes that possible is the involvement Viking has in all aspects of their River Cruises. One, Viking owns and operates all of their ships. Two, they oversee all aspects of their river cruises and staff, while training each and every employee directly. Three, they have one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry and have been awarded many of the top customer service awards around. This, in addition to every other aspect of Viking River Cruises, makes them stand out as one of the most awarded river cruise lines out there (awarded 3 years in a row, I might add).

Being able to offer our vacation families this type of experience is something we are truly excited about. Up Tomorrow……Viking Ship Experiences
