We chose this cruise because of the number of ports. Started in Bergen, Norway and ended in Athens, Greece. This was our first ocean cruise and it was fantastic. The ship accommodated around 930 passengers, our cruise had a little over 700 passengers, but it never felt crowed which was one of our biggest fears in booking on a ship this large. Our Veranda Suite was extremely roomy, the food and service was excellent, along with great entertainment, and the common areas on the ship were comfortable and nicely decorated. My husband walks with a rollator (a rolling walker), and there was plenty of room on the ship and in our room for him to move around comfortably. We had included shore excursions at every port and enjoyed every one of them. I would highly recommend this trip, this ship, and this cruise line, and will definitely take another ocean cruise with Viking.
