Extraordinary Baltic Cuise

Viking Sea Cruise Review by TK42

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2016
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

We chose this cruise because we hadn't traveled to several of the destinations previously and had experience on Viking river boats. We also had some experience on larger cruise ships which we found disagreeable at best, so we were pleasantly surprised by our first reaction to the Viking Sea. This cruise was her second after being built and was outstanding. The ports of call and tours were handled extremely well and the on board lectures and lecturers were fantastic. It should be noted that this ship is not for people looking for climbing walls, water slides, or extravaganza entertainment. It's geared for travelers who want to experience the ports of call and learn some history along the way.

The ship itself is beautiful as are the cabins. I believe all of the cabins are outside and most, if not all, have a small veranda. The food is delightful in both the restaurants (no extra charge) and the buffet which offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The staff is terrific and always went out of their way to make sure we were both comfortable and satisfied with the experience.

We will be sailing again on this same ship this fall on a transAtlantic repositioning and are already excited. We've actually done a similar trip before on another lines huge, 3000+ passenger ship, which was one of the worst trips we've ever taken, so we're looking forward to revisiting some of the ports on the much smaller Viking as well as seeing several new ports.

If you sail for the destinations and the ambience of a relatively small ship, Viking can't be beaten!

Cabin Review

Cabin DV1 4039

Cabin size was adequate and beautifully designed. Lighting was very good and there was adequate room for two to sit and be comfortable. The heated bathroom floor was great.
