Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:

We have done several Viking cruIses before so we were expecting more,

The shore excursions were less than expected - even the extra cost ones were less than expected. The buses were full and uncomfortable. One couldn't even make it up the hill out of town and all the guide was worried about was if she was going to be back in time. The walk to the buses was long and over wet and slippery paths. A port was missed due to weather but nothing was added to fill the time.

The food was repetitive and uninspiring. Never had a piece of meat done to the right temperature. The included wine has gone so down hill as to be undrinkable, Nothing on the buffet was ever hot. Sadly the best food was the pool grill and room service.

Cabin Review

cabin was typical for viking ocean cabins - missed the extra room in the penthouse verandas

Port Reviews

Alta

city tour was an uncomfortable bus ride pointing out nothing of interest. The igloo hotel was uncomfortable - would be worth a visit bt not a overnight stay.

Tromso

Another uncofortable bus tour

Tromso

large full buses parked in a parking lot with no facilities for hours, total waste of time and money
