Met all our expectations. Our Israel excursion to Jerusalem was great. This was our first Viking Ocean Cruise. While on board we booked our first Viking River Cruise. The rooms were great, loved the heated floors in bathroom. The entertainment was fantastic. The cruise director was always very informative and boy could he sing. The food was great and we choose to dine with different people each night and enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. We made some good friends. All the included excursions were so good. We also took a great add'l excursion to Pompeii. After our cruise we booked an addl 4 days in the Tuscany area. We stayed in a 14th century villa overlooking a breath taking view of the area. We went to Firenze, Siena and San Gimignano. What beautiful cities with so much history. We had very knowledgeable guides who did a great job in informing us.
