Viking Vidar

March 2016 - March 28, 2016 Cruise on Viking Vidar

Rhine Rhapsody

3/27/2016 Rhine Rhapsody.  10 days from Basel Switzerland to Paris, France. A short wonderful breathtaking cruise from Basel, Switzerland to Germany towns, to Luxembourg and ending in Paris, France.  This cruise is available only a couple of times at the start of the year.  Ours is the first trip for 2016 for Viking Vidar.  Some passengers canceled their trip because of last week's Brussels terrorist bombing, Only 60 passengers pushed thru and we all have a fabulous trip with almost a ratio of one crew to one passenger.  We were pampered, spoiled and have a wonderful time.  For a New Yorker, I find Switzerland and Paris expensive, but what the heck, we were on vacation.

Star Princess

February 2015 - 15 Night Hawaii (San Francisco Roundtrip) Cruise on Star Princess

15 days San Francisco to Hawaii cruise

The cruise staff was very good, excellent wait staff, good shows, delicious food, beautiful scenery.  Wasn't able to stop at Kauai due to strong winds, but that's Mother Nature.  Otherwise all the shore excursions to Oahu, Hilo and Maui are just wonderful.  .  Can't ask for more,  Go.

lfinnewyork's Tips

Cruise Moselle River -
End Of Vacation - The cruise has a two day in Paris, France. Wonderful and romantic.
Trier, Germany - Went to the Luxembourg American Cemetery, Very serene and heartbreaking place,
Koblenz, Germany - Do not miss the Marksburg castle, You can imagine how the people lived a long time ago in that castle.
Cruise Rhine River - Breathtaking river scenery
Basel, Switzerland - Went with the whole day optional tour of Highlight of the Alps. Saw wood crafting , quaint towns and skiing.
Viking Vidar Viking Vidar - Highlights of the Alps , an optional tour in Basel, Switzerland is somewhat overrated and very expensive. No need to pay the package drink, there's plenty of free wine, and beers during meal times, and no corkage fee when you bring it to the dining room. Wines and beer are dirt cheap in Europe.
Cruise Rhine River -
Amsterdam, Netherlands - Go see Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Red Light District, Canal Ride, and even the Sex Museum,
Viking Mimir Viking Mimir - We didn't board Viking Mimir, because of low water level in Europe. Instead we boarded Viking Eistla, then Viking Baldur, then Viking Emla. They are all Longships, spanking new, clean and superbly efficient. in common bathrooms, they use cotton towels for drying hands. Fabulous.
Lahaina, Maui - We were able to go to a farm and later to a macadamia processing plant.
Honolulu, Oahu - Wonderful. Did a lot of Hawaiian souvenirs shopping in Walmart, Excellent prices.
Hilo, Hawaii - Beautiful place with a hometown feeling, Nice to be able to retire there.
Star Princess Star Princess - I love this smaller ship, not too overwhelming, Easier access from one end to the other or to other levels. Atmosphere is more friendlier .
Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - Make it a point to go watch their entertainment every night. Simply superb. And the singers, specially Arvin and Emily, wonderful lounge singers.
