The cruise was nicely done. New ship! I enjoyed every moment of it. The crew were friendly and helpful. The check in and out seemed to go smoothly. I can see every crew took pride of their work/ship. We met great shipmates and had a great time. My husband and I went to the Gym almost everyday. Great gym with fancy exercise equipment. We love the fire and ice near the pool. The shore excursion seemed great. I thought we were better off to just use the excursion that came with the cruise instead of buying other excursion.
There were few things I thought the cruise could improve:
1. The jewelry was way overpriced. I understand that vendors like Effy are not affiliated with Viking. Whoever from Viking worked with the vendors should have done some homework. I love jewelry and usually buy a piece of jewelry from every place I visited for my memory. The price for Effy for example was three times more than what I would have paid back home at Macy's or Lord and Taylor. It was disappointed.
