April 15, 2013 at 8:44 AM | by | Comments (0)

If getting back into the workweek is a little hard this morning—no problem—as we’ve got some daydream destinations to get you through the day. Sure the odds aren’t exactly in your favor when it comes to winning a contest, but you can’t win if you don’t play. So here’s a couple contests ending this week, so take a few minutes and throw your name into the hat for a chance to win.

Viking River Cruises

Even if you wouldn’t consider yourself a "cruise person," we’ve got to say that we certainly would have no problem boarding one of the ships in the Viking River Cruises fleet. The smaller ships wind their way through the rivers of the world, and provide an up-close and personal look at smaller ports and cities—especially over in Europe.

Hop onto Facebook, "like" Viking River Cruises, and then enter for your chance to win a free cruise for two in 2014. The Rhine Getaway itinerary also includes coach airfare, guided tours, plenty of onboard meals, and a whole bunch of other things—good luck.

Four 2013 Cruise Itineraries That Don't Suck

January 8, 2013 at 2:21 PM | by | Comments (0)

No matter what your opinion of cruising, there are some places much better suited to entering by ocean or waterway. Every year cruise lines kick each other in the shins in the race to have the coolest city combinations for their newest ships...all to attract you, dear traveler. For 2013, we have our eyes on four itineraries in particular that make midnight buffets off the coast of Bermuda and dancing to jazz in middle of the Med look like child's play.

· 12 days on Ukraine's Dnieper River with Viking River Cruises
Who thinks, "hey, let me go cruise my way through Ukraine?" No one, that's who. Or, rather, no one with the exception of people booking the Dnieper River trip on Viking River Cruises, since that's exactly what they'll be doing. We love river cruise ships for their ability to cruise by at eye level and gain a unique perspective of smaller cities where travelers usually arrive by train or car. Viking also has a Burma/Myanmar cruise coming up for 2014 we're already eyeing.
Ports: Odessa, Sevastopol, Yalta, Kherson, Zaporozhye, Kiev
From: $2,438 double occupancy (includes 10 tours)
