Over the past few weeks, I’ve received a few emails on Viking River Cruises. The most predominant one: What to pack?
With expectations of being an upscale experience, and the need to be dressed up, I’m happy to report that’s not entirely the case (most of the time!). Sailing with Viking River Cruises means you’ll have plenty of time exploring cobblestone streets, or winding through castles so most of the day is outside in casual wear. Evenings are spent (typically) at the restaurant onboard which is white linen and multiple courses. For dinners, dress is scattered from women in blouses and jeans, to those who want to be a bit more dressed up. I found myself in a blend of semi-casual dresses and black jeans with a nicer top for the dinners. During the day, I was as casual and comfortable as one could be.
Here’s what to pack for a Viking river cruise:
1 evening dress, 1 loose-style dress, and a flowy dress. If you think you can fit more, I always pack a few extra dresses, as they’re great to travel in and can be worn at night. I love this one, this floral print, and this off-the-shoulder one.
