We Test Viking River Cruises Latest Excursion Options in Amsterdam
At the Viking River Cruises christening event in Amsterdam, Netherlands last week, my fellow journalists and I were turned into control subjects for the day, testing out a new program that Viking already offers in Hoorn and in the Slovakian city of Bratislava: Home Visits.
A Home Visit is a special type of shore excursion that actually invites you into the home of a local citizen to learn about their life, their dwelling, and maybe even partake in a drink. Viking doesn’t offer Home Visit excursions in Amsterdam just yet, but they’re cautiously analyzing their itineraries to see where home visits might be popular. So, we set out for the day to road-test Viking’s latest pilot project in Amsterdam.
