My sister and I took this cruise to celebrate our retirement after teaching HS for 35 yrs. we had never been on a cruise before so as 'newbies' it was quite the experience. We became known as "the sisters" by friends and crew alike, which was one of the surprising things! The crew was so personable , kind and friendly! The ship was amazing and we spent the first few days in spare time just roaming in awe of the beauty of the ship! Our cabin was spacious and we loved the private veranda where we spent several mornings eating breakfast and enjoying the view while being catered to 24/7. All accommodations were spacious and again, the crew was terrific. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant group of people to be around. The food was amazing and we loved having several possible choices for dining! We samples them all, and give all our approval! Also having the waiters and waitresses remember our names and preferences added that touch of class and friendliness. Every evening there was offerings of music, dancing and movies by the pool. Afternoons offered lectures on varying topics including our ports of call as well as timely information on travel and entertainment. It was amazing what all was available! After 10 days on this cruise, we left feeling like we had made new friends and acquaintances, and we're anxious to tell out husbands about it so they could experience this wonderful opportunity too - taking us again of course! We loved every minute and made memories for a lifetime. Thank you Viking!

Once in a Lifetime!

We loved the cabin and the private veranda! What a special touch it was to have our own balcony to view the water and cities. This was truly a beautiful place!
