We'd heard very positive things about Viking from several people who'd gone on river cruises. We wanted to go to Scandinavia, and found our Homelands ocean cruise. The business class flights to and from were amazing; so comfortable. Every Viking service was excellent, from meeting us at the airport to escorting us to and from the ship and airport, to the cheerful meal service people to room steward. (We went 2 days early and the hotel they put us in was wonderful.) Our cabin was wonderful! Great views from the verandas, good Wi-Fi, ample space, comfortable bed and chairs, very quiet, outstanding shower! All the excursions were interesting and informative and well organized (and they accommodated my walker well). My only caveat was that all the included excursions were of cities and towns (historical buildings, etc.) rather than the beautiful scenery. The best excursions we took were optional ones into the mountains, and they were wonderful. The massages were outstanding! One of the lectures was the best lecture I've ever heard, in both delivery and content. The dining was incredible; we enjoyed greatly both the self-serve World Café (lots of great delicious choices, no long lines) and the three restaurants (five-course meals). Wine always included. Everyone on the cruise except us had been on Viking cruises before! They all said the river and ocean cruises were equally good. We have already picked out our next Viking ocean cruise, and want to try a river cruise some time soon. The passengers were all friendly and in our demographic (mainly recently retired or so). No annoying kids, rowdy teens, casinos, art sales, etc.

Everything about the ship was perfect!!
