I will quote travel insurance options once you pick a cruise. The cost is based on the price of the cruise and your age.

The deposit is $1000 to book, but I can hold a reservation for a couple days without payment. The final payment would be due the end of January to keep the promotions. Unfortunately, that is Viking's policy for their special deals.

A Viking host is available to help you plan your time in Basel so you can make the most of your visit.

Your afternoon is free to explore on your own, perhaps at the Barfüsser Church and its Basel Historical Museum. (B)
