Delightful Countries, Amazing Ship

Viking Sea Cruise Review by hagleml1

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

This cruise provides a great overview of a delightful group of countries on an amazing ship. Viking is the master of making travel a joy and not a burden. Every aspect of the trip was well planed and executed.

The ship is definitely the nicest ship I have ever experienced. It is like visiting a very up scale Scandinavian home. With less than 1000 passengers, the ship never seems crowded, and lines are never a problem.

With four restaurants to choose from, the dining is exceptional. Even the hot dogs and hamburgers at the pool grill are a cut above. We never tired of the excellent variety of meals available.

No casino and no photographers is real plus, much more relaxing. The absence of children under 16 also makes for a more relaxing environment.

The shore excursions are exceptional. Viking is all about the destination, and the included and optional tours provide a great overview of the countries you visit.

If you have been turned off by a large cruise ship experience in the past, you owe it to yourself to try a Viking ocean cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin Jr Penthouse Suite 8018

Nice size, a bit over 400 sq ft, with a balcony. Location on deck 8 was a plus. very quiet and easy to access. Bathroom was amazing. Heated floors and mirror so no cold feet or fogging after a shower. Two sinks and lots of storage. Large glass shower.

Love seat, coffee table, and two chairs make for flexible seating and eating breakfast in the room.
