Had no preconceived ideas as first Viking" cruise experience. From check in and embarkation I knew this was different. We felt like invited and treasured guests. The Explorers lounge was our intro...a good one. The greeting from staff was so welcoming and so personal...and the small number of guests made us feel we were on a private cruise..til we immediately made friends of like minded folk. And all we're of the same opinion as many many were returnees. We literally had NO negative experiences on board. Excursions were excellent and the presence on the on board "experts" at some excursions especially helpful, I love the academic/scientific/historical aspect of the areas we visited and found the coverage exceptional. The local guides were truly delightful especially in Scotland. Knowledgeable and entertaining, we were taken onto an adventure that they lived and breathed. The opportunity to visit the archeological ruins of these tiny islands was an exceptional treat. Impossible for tour descriptors to really capture but the pre tour lectures were near perfect preps, especially those by scholar/scientists on board. Norway was spectacular as promised. The access we had to enter narrow exquisite fjords in near silence amongst the breathtaking scenery was unforgettable and we are so grateful for the opportunity In short, i cannot recommend too highly. My husband and I have different goals sometimes and different expectations of travel...Viking met them all with this trip
