It all started with a river cruise…

My gateway cruise drug—the Viking Atla on a European waterway in August 2014.

I was one of “those.” You know, the folks who said they never had an interest in taking a cruise.

Notice the past tense of the verb.

Now I’m an old hand (ha!–certainly the “old” part) at river cruising after a 15-day “Grand European Tour” with Viking River Cruises in August 2014. And Mom and I are just over a week away from leaving on a 15-day “Viking Homelands” visit to the Baltic with the barely-out-of-the-shipyard Viking Star on the company’s new Viking Oceans line.

While this website is all about what it’s like to be a newbie at ocean cruising, you can find my European river cruise account at my other site: River Cruise Newbie

I’m hoping for just as much fun out in the waves as we had between the river banks of those lovely waterways. But no seasickness…please?
