Viking Sea Cruise Review by cincykid44

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

We picked this cruise because of Viking's reputation and the itinerary that this cruise provided, namely the opportunity to visit Norway in addition to thecountries included in other lines' Baltic cruises.

The ship, staff and food were exceptional. We particularly enjoyed the "Restaurant" at day's end when we were not eating at Manfredi's or the "Chef's Table".

We hesitated at signing up for the beverage package, but found that although we are not big drinkers, it was nice not to worry about a surprise tab at cruise end.

We took advantage of offered optional shore excursions at every port and were generally pleased. Pulpit Rock and the St. Petersburg Ballet were among the highlights.

The only downer on the trip were problems with connecting flights arranged by Viking which were tight and thoroughly botched by Air Canada and complicated by SAS. The transatlantic flights were great with the ability to select seats worth every penny.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda 5026

Excellent cabin in a perfect location on the ship. No engine noise, vibration or sea "roll".

Housekeeping staff were great and fun to speak with.
