The Viking River Cruise brochure arrived in the mail, and this time, instead of snorting at the idea and throwing it away immediately, I opened it, just to see how much the prices had been discounted. Not that I would think of going, just to comfort myself that there might be a viral silver lining.
Evidently the prices are not discounted at all. I suppose that’s because they are restarting after being stalled since March, and they need to fill the coffers. Plus, anyone who thinks the pandemic has ended, and goes on a cruise, Given that the pandemic started on a cruise, that person is probably deluded enough to pay full Viking River Cruise prices.
The prices are still insane. This from the woman who paid $25 for a raw eight ounce steak.
