We chose this cruise as we wanted to see the Holy Land and to visit places that have been around for thousands of years that we could only marvel at in books. We can now finally say we were there, we saw that, and we felt moved at being there.
The trip was fabulous. This is our third Viking Cruise and the fact that there is a trip in every port makes these cruises such value for money. Its also the other inclusive bits that make Viking excel above other cruise lines. Free water in the room, free trips, free restaurant visits, free food in the cabin. Also we upgraded the cabin and enjoyed an excellent daily restocked mini-bar. This is luxury at its best.
Above all the staff are fantastic. Everyone greets you whatever they are doing. The senior staff sit in the restaurant with the guests and there is no feeling of 'Us and Them'
They make you feel very welcome and it is just like a big family.
The ship was just right - the size and number of passengers on board makes this feel very homely and just what we look for in a holiday - not too crowded.
All in all to see the Holy Land with Viking was a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
Cosy, warm and spacious. Small veranda balcony with enough room to sit out when able. Everything was there and the bed was very comfortable. The heated floor in the bathroom was great for drying wet clothes too!
Loads of wardrobe space too.
