Regular holiday

Our fifth Viking cruise in Europe and our favourite. Two day start in Lisbon followed by a day in Porto both fabulous and interesting cities, followed by a leisurely cruise through stunning countryside.

There’s a a full day in Salamanca which we felt able to pass on as we preferred the boat to a 3 hour coach journey.

Difficult to fault Viking for service. Food of the highest standards and daily tours included which will suit almost all levels of fitness.

Relatively small boats with just over 100 guests on board. Size of boat dictated by the constraints of the river.

One of the great things about river cruising is that if you are prone to short term health issues like a migraine you can just go and sleep it off. Your bed goes with you.

We love it.
