Travel Experience
European Viking River Cruise

by Jan Darby and Krystal McCallum

Krystal and I recently had the opportunity to join an 8 day, 7 port, Europe river cruise with Viking Cruises from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary.  As neither of us had been on a river cruise before we were very excited to experience this very popular way of travel. We flew with Qatar Airways via Doha Airport, which is modern, clean and easy to get around.
