Viking Sea Cruise Review by wtancill
- Sail Date: July 2016
- Destination: Baltic Sea
The most challenging part of any such cruise is getting there and back. Viking made it very easy. They met us at the airport and had attendants in the baggage area who helped load the luggage on carts and take it out to waiting busses. We thought we might have to delay boarding, since we arrived in late morning--too early for our 3 pm embarkation time. This was not the case at all. Though we couldn't get into our cabin until 2 or 3, we were able to relax, have a meal, and discover this great ship.
Disembarkation was similarly stress-less. Great job.
The ship was beautiful and more than we had hoped for. We had taken several river trips with Viking and were always impressed with the crew, the food, the service -- really everything. The Baltic was a great itinerary. The speakers Viking had on board describing the ports and history of the region were excellent, and the entertainment was very well done.
One final note of praise and thanks go to the staff that books the included and optional tours. We found that some of the tours we had pre-booked would be too demanding. Those staff persons could not have been more helpful in changing the bookings and looking out for us to make sure we were okay.

Flam RailwayVery nice views of the countryside from the Flam Railway, with a meal at a hotel high on the mountain. Great vistas. I wonder how they get around in the snows of winter.View All 193 Flam Railway Reviews
