A friend and I decided to cruise on Viking on a spontaneous whim and I’m so glad we did. We enjoyed each stop on our journey and found a perfect blend of the guided tours and exploring on our own. Each day we did the included tour and also had time to wander on our own. The balance of time on and off the ship was perfect. All our tour guides were professional, knowledgeable and fun. The staff was at the door to wish us well for the day with a bottle of water and an umbrella (if needed), this was something I did not expect.

In the evenings we enjoyed a cocktail and meeting other guests, and are honored to say we now have friends in the UK and can’t wait to cruise with them again. The food on board was amazing. A great variety of local and fresh flavors. We enjoyed the omelet station each morning, the fresh salads at lunch on the terrace, and a fine dinner in the dinning room.

One of the true highlights of the trip is the wonderful staff. They are always willing to help, enjoy a conversation, offer suggestions and a smile. Our interaction with the staff started as soon as we cleared customs in the airport, from that moment all our needs were tended to which made for a relaxing and stress free international travel experience. When deciding on our cabin we weren’t sure which category to choose and our travel planner gave us great information so we could make the right choice for us. Our room was perfect for us, much roomier than we expected even though we choose the lowest deck. We did not have a balcony, but not once did we miss it. Every time we wanted to sit outside we also wanted to have views of both sides of the ship so sitting in the sun deck was perfect.

We extended our trip a few days at the end. Even then when we were more on our own we had the support and guidance of the great staff.

All in all there is nothing we have thought of could have been better. We can’t wait for our next adventure on Viking.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom

Our cabin was perfect for us. Small but never felt cramped. Bathroom was bigger than we expected. All the furnishings were top notch.

A great walking tour to kick off our trip and stretch our legs after a long flight.
