Loved our trip from beginning to end. We had been really keen to visit the Baltic ports and in particular St Petersburg and finding a cruise without unnecessary days at sea which included Norwegian fjords was suc a bonus. Everything was included in the price including most of our trips and we found we spent surpringly little on our holiday.
We sailed from Bergen first north to Sogne Fjord and All the way up the Fjord to Flam. The scenery and sunsets were beautiful, helped by the long summer days. At Flam we chose an optional extra trip up the railway and cycled a very easy and beautiful route back down the valley. Memorable.
Next stop Stavanger-great included walking tour and a lovely town. Oil museum was far more interesting than expected and enjoyed the best hot chocolate ever outside one of the colourful little restaurants.
This made the pattern for an excellent trip. We used the included tours in most ports of call apart from St Petersburg where we took a very good 2 day tour with ballet included. Both in Stockholm and Copenhagen we also went on a boat trip-all so easy as Viking put you in the heart of the town.
Everything on this trip was done for your comfort. There were shows and talks and very good preparations for the following day. All in all there was a real sense of peace on the boat, ALL staff spoke to you and would have helped in any way. We also loved the quiet corners with books provided, the piano, guitar and quartet playing in different parts of the ship and the afternoon tea in the Wintergarten.
We enjoyed this so much we have already been on our second cruise with Viking Ocean.
One other good point. We never had to queue for anything and embarkation and disembarkation we very easy. Usually the ship was in the town and we were told at 7 or 7.30 the gangway was down and we could go ashore if we chose.
The cabins were beautiful. Every one had a balcony where were enjoyed sailing in the sunset. There was plenty of space, a large en suite, VERY comfortable bed and cabin staff who would do anything to help.
