Enjoy Light Crowds on Viking Cruises' Quiet Season Mediterranean Voyages!

Travel is beginning to pick up once again making must-see destinations crowded during high season, but Viking Cruises has the perfect solution. The quiet season in the Mediterranean is a great time to visit to see everything with less crowds and more time to explore. 

Quiet season allows you to see and interact with more locals and less tourists, while having easier access to all of the landmarks and attractions you are there to see. This time of year is also a great time to save on airfare, making fall and winter an option for everyone.
