Thursday, December 17, 2015

This morning, Star Clippers’ Royal Clipper got in touch with her European heritage – all without ever leaving the Caribbean.

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Recapping our Viking River Cruise through Myanmar

When I first planned my trip aboard Viking River Cruises’ Viking Mandalay as part of Viking’s 15-day Myanmar Explorer river cruise tour itinerary, I didn’t know what to expect. I’d sailed with Viking numerous times in Europe, covering the Danube, the Rhine, France’s Bordeaux region and […]
