You don't get nickled and dimed to death on a Viking cruise!

We like Viking because when we check out at the end of the cruise we don't have a huge bill to pay for wine, sodas, bottled water, spa, laundry and shore excursions. The ship is light and bright and cheery. ...

Far exceeded our expectations!

We chose the cruise because of the small ship, fewer passengers, no kids and no casinos. And I wanted to go to Greece and the Mediterranean. Our cabin was amazing and included every possible need we could have. ...
