You know like the Vikings ... Oh well if you haven't chuckled yet nothing is going to change that
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
Carnival: Glory 2004, Destiny 2008, Splendor 2009, Freedom 2011, Valor 2012, Dream 2013
Celebrity: Summit 2011
Princess: Ruby 2010, 2014, Caribbean 2013, Coral 2014, Regal 2014
Star Clippers: Royal Clipper 2015
Most of the excursions are included on the Viking River cruises. "The Plunder and Pillage" excursion is an additional $100/pp but does include village sacking, cattle rustling and something to do with sheep.
Seriously: I can't wait to do a river cruise. Their popularity has grown so much in the last few years, as well as their fleets that they must be doing something right.

We absolutely loved our river cruise and can't wait to go again. Now, if we can only get the money together!
But in all honesty, when we go again, it'll probably not be with Viking. We prefer a little nicer. It's like with ocean cruises; if you want cheap, you go with Carnival, if you want nicer there are others from which to choose.
