Cities of Light – Viking River Cruise Log!
This was my first trip on a river boat. So many people wanted to know what it was like. So many want to do it. (Did they see the Downton Abbey advertisements, perchance?) I try to answer all their questions in this blog!
It was a varied itinerary. We started off in Paris, stopped in Luxembourg, boarded the river boat in Trier, Germany, disembarked the riverboat in Nuremburg, traveled to Prague by bus. We spent 4 days in Prague, 2 of them with the tour. Then, we did a private tour of the Czech Republic by car for five more days before returning to Paris (another full day) and then we flew home. I wrote about it as three separate trips: Paris, the riverboat cruise; Prague and the Czech Republic. Though there is some overlap with the Viking parts of that itinerary, I think that it’s a bit contrived given the paltry Viking contributions to the Paris and Prague portions of the trip!
