We wanted to visit Scandinavia, and this cruise highlighted many of the areas we wanted to visit. We have been to Europe many times, but this was our first trip via cruise. We would like to take a river cruise next time. Our embarkation was excellent, and we were greeted right away after landing in Amsterdam. The food was out of this world! Every meal was awesome with wonderful service each time. Our staff members for our cabin were wonderful and very courteous and kind. The weather could not have been more perfect as well, so we thank the captain for arranging that for us, too :-). The port talks and TED talks that were available were all very informative, and the entertainment on board was excellent as well. I loved seeing so many wonderful books so readily available all around the ship as well. Thank you to all the staff for helping to make this such a wonderful experience. Read Less

It was part of a special Viking promotion. The ship, itself, was excellent and the service was excellent. The Restaurant meals were excellent and the waitstaff was efficient and friendly. We were disappointed in some of the included shore excursions as we felt as if we had not gained a sense of the city. The exceptions to that were Oslo, Norway, where we had an outstanding tour guide and Hamburg, Germany, where we had more time to get a feel for the place. The visit to Skagen, Denmark, was good, although our tour guide didn't give us a chance to stop and take in individual sites. But it was a beautiful little city with friendly people and interesting shops. It would have been good to drop one of the Danish stops and add a Norwegian stop. If we were going to take the cruise again, I think I would sign up for some of the optional tours to get a better sense of the towns. Read Less

This cruise was to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. We took advantage of a last minute cabin upgrade offer and were glad we did. The ship was beautiful and easy to get around. All the restaurants served delicious food and the service is always outstanding with their specialty restaurants particularly standing out. We enjoyed all of the shore excursions and took advantage of a couple of extra ones. This cruise took us to ports we haven't been too before. The local guides provide a wonderful perspective and offer personal bits of information making the tour more enjoyable. The staff is always pleasant with a smile and kind word when encountered. We are pleased with the house keeping and dining staff which we see several times a day. They are always helpful and quite responsive. We enjoyed the entertainment, especially having a live band to dance to. The port talks and enrichment lectures are worth attending. They are enjoyable, entertaining and educational. We can't wait for our next Viking cruise. Read Less

Informal, impromptu, catered to our every need, every detail covered. Super easy getting on and off. Definitely going again on the Mediterranean next time. Great local guides, the sound devices give you freedom of movement during tours. ... Read More
Informal, impromptu, catered to our every need, every detail covered. Super easy getting on and off. Definitely going again on the Mediterranean next time. Great local guides, the sound devices give you freedom of movement during tours. The ship never has to tender, we can always dock and just get off and walk around. We love walking, and these cities are built for it. The Danish towns of Skagen and Fredericia were just lovely, the people so welcoming and friendly. These lovely small towns said farewell to our ship with their little marching bands! We loved Copenhagen, too, extended there on the start of the trip. Kiel, Hamburg and the Kiel Canal were also highlights. Entertainment on board was exceptional, as were the historical folks on board. Lots of food choices, never had to get too dressed up, we were able to dine when and where we wanted without having to make a reservation. Read Less

A friend suggested it because it was new and had an interesting itinerary. I had been on a Viking tour of China so was familiar with the company. I was very impressed. The ship is lovely, the service is excellent, wine with lunch and dinner was included and was very good and generously poured and the places we visited were interesting. I liked the entertainment and the lounges. We were in room 4094, a medium priced choice. Very nice and quiet as well. We ate in both specialty restaurants - the Italian themed one was very good - as well as in the dining room and the buffet. We were able to eat some lunches and dinners out on the deck and that was very nice. When I got back home I told all my friends that I wouldn't go on any other cruise line besides Viking. The good news is that they are building a lot more ships in this same style! Read Less

Overall, the cruise was wonderful. The excursions were excellent and the guides were well informed. One exception to the excursions was a guide that left part of the group without notice. Now, we bring a map supplied by Viking. The cabin had plenty of room, the bathroom was big, and well prepared every day. The food was tasty and plentiful. Did not like the special dress code for a few of the Viking restaurants. The size of the ship was small enough to enter the smaller harbors and was located near the city centers. We like Viking's policy of adults only on the cruises. A disadvantage of the Viking provided flights is Check-in is not an option the day before the flight, which is inconvenient. Our final flight was delayed for embarkation, but Viking made arrangements to pick us up at the airport on time to bring us to the ship. We like Viking and have booked our next Viking Cruise.
