  3. Viking Jarl
We accompanied some friends on this cruise and they were the ones responsible for choosing Viking as well as the destination. However we were MOST impressed with EVERY aspect of the cruise and are definitely planning rebook with Viking. The staff was extremely attentive and personable. They went beyond on a personal level although many of the thoughtful experiences were built into the ship's agenda. For example, on our first excursion, we started out in a cold rain. As we left the ship, we were offered nice (and large) umbrellas. Upon our return, we were greeted with warm towels and hot chocolate! Every excursion was well-orchestrated and the logistics were obviously well-planned. The guides for our excursions were very well informed and attentive to our needs while away from the ship. In addition to the built-in excursions, we were also given plenty of free time to explore the area or participate in another tour of our choice. The public rooms provided a great place to gather for large or small groups. The view was spectacular from almost any area in that space.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA
Spotless and nicely furnished. The showers were very nice - always hot and a very good shower head. The heated bathroom floor also was a pleasant surprise.
