We always select a cruise based upon ship size and destinations. Viking has never left us feeling disappointed in these areas plus the food, service and attentions to details. One of our favorite things about Viking cruises, is that when possible, they set up excursions to family homes within the city you are visiting. This personalize the trip and really gives you an opportunity to immerse your self in the culture.
We have discovered that Viking will also set up private trips in a port also. On another cruise, we wanted to visit another site. Viking found us a guide and taxi services for us. Additionally, the costs were just added to our total bill so we did not have to worry about money.
The rooms on Viking River or Ocean cruises are clean, all the staff is willing to go the extra mile to accommodate you and the food selection is varied and tasty. Everything is well planned out. we feel like we are well taken care of and at home. I would never use another cruise line but Viking!
We had a veranda deluxe cabin on the 4th floor and it was well located to the stairs and elevators. Very nice appointments and the balcony was fabulous!
