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

Firstly we chose “Viking” based on our previous river cruising experiences. We always book our travel and transfers with Viking. As soon as we see the Viking agents responsible for getting us to our ship, we immediately relax and get into vacation mode. We chose this cruise hoping to see the natural beauty of the Norwegian fjords and Viking came through with flying colors. As advertized, our ship sailed to locations only accessible to smaller ocean liners. During the cruise, we enjoyed several conversations with our ship’s captain. He was very approachable and appeared to enjoy the cruise just as much as his passengers did. The entire service staff took care of all our requests and needs. The in port excursions were fun and very educational. During our time on board, we utilized the excellent fitness facilities, enjoyed many satisfying meals at all of the restaurants and poolside grill. We have now enjoyed both ocean and river cruising with Viking and look forward to booking future trips.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda 3066

The cabin had plenty of room for our belongings. Very comfortable bedding and a great bathroom area with very nice shower facilities.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


This was our embarkation port. All went smooth with our trip from airport to our ship.


Story of the Italian Chapel built during WWII at this location really tugged at our hearts.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

What I remember most about our Lerwick tour was the fact that at every turn we encounter someone related to our tour guide! She was a delight!


The inlet waterway into the city is so beautiful viewed from high above at Mt. Aksla and within the city itself.

Tromso Highlights Tour

The outdoor garden we visited was so full of beautiful colors. Especially stunning was the variety of orchids we saw.

The views above the fjord that leads into Geiranger are breathtaking.

Flam Railway

The snack stop at a local hotel needs to be better planned. The scenery seen from the train and at our final destination was great.

White sided homes in older part of town are beautifully preserved.


Inlet with non-stop restaurants was a blast to visit. Got lucky as an outdoor jazz festival was also in progress at this location.


Tour guides were the best we had on entire trip. They lived in both west and east Berlin so were able to provide us with very personal and compelling stories related to the Berlin Wall.

The palace water gardens and fountains was a fun day as we got to see many local families also enjoy this park.

Just a gem and very unexpected highlight of the cruise. Also a most delightful tour guide!


Beautiful city. Learning more about the Nobel prize process was very interesting.


Only port with bad weather. Just would not stop raining, but we made the best of it.
