Our Honeymoon was scheduled for Spring 2018 but the magic began a year earlier when we sat down with Karen and Steve. They were knowledgeable, professional, well prepared and best of all, they were just as excited for our trip as we were. I remember looking back at Elaina with a smile from ear to ear, thinking we’re in GREAT hands here!
We could tell we were in for the trip of a lifetime based on the vivid descriptions of cities, experiences and sights that Karen was able to provide for us based on her own experience on a Viking River Cruise. This helped us feel confident we were going to have a wonderful adventure and that someone would be there to guide us through the planning process with a great deal of knowledge and passion for travel.
Karen set up the My Trip Route app for us on our devices which was a fantastic, accessible way for us to have all of our information and itineraries in one place. Karen even went above and beyond to pre-populate our app with advice and personalized recommendations for each stop along our way, adding a personal touch to our experience.
When it finally came time for our Honeymoon, we were well informed and prepared to embark on the Viking Var (a fitting ship for a newlywed couple as in Norse mythology Var is the overseer of the oaths between man and woman!). While we planned for our Viking River Cruise to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, by day two we were sitting in a biergarten in Austria planning when we would be able to take a second journey with Viking – it was that good! The ship was beautiful. The staff were amazingly attentive and personable. And, the sights were straight out of a fairytale. We cannot recommend this mode of travel enough and nine months later we are still “waltzing”, dreaming of our next Viking River Cruise with Plan A Vacation!
Prost! Elaina & Justin
