  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

I learned the size of the ship was smaller than previous ships I had traveled on....the itinerary was interesting. The facilities on board were wonderful. Our room was exceptionally cared for....and it was so comfortable. I especially enjoyed the view from the veranda. The entire staff aboard the ship, always ready to please with smiling faces. The food was beyond perfect..fresh fruit by the handsful. The meals were exceptional, offering lengthly selections in the beautiful restaurants and exquisite buffets. The tours were informative, directed by the most knowledgable quides...The European countries were so beautiful. The weather was a bit cooler than I expected--a better choice of cool weather clothing would have been more comfortable. The umbrella I packed was put to good use. Evening attire was comfortable aboard..no fancy clothing was necessary. The entertainment was great..offering music and dancing by very talented staff members, including the director, Aaron! Because the number of people aboard the ship was smaller, we seemed to see people more frequently whom we had met and interacted with. There was always something aboard to keep us entertained..shopping, teas, of course, eating and socializing. Unfortunately, when we decided on the cruise, arrangements were made with an airline which cancelled the first connection of our itineray..Air Canada was Vikings choice of airlines to connect us to Europe..."weather related" issues forced cancellation out of Detroit to Toronto. We had difficulty making new connections. Viking personnel initially hesitated to assume any responsibility to reboard us as did Air Canada, whose counter staff certainly offended us. It was a struggle, causing an overnight stay in Detroit before, eventually, Viking assuring us a boarding pass the next evening aboard a Delta flight out...so disappointing to miss nearing a two day visit to Bergen...so stress pervoking. Our entire ticket was cancelled by the airline..even our return ticket. Fortunately, Vikings customer representative, aboard the ship, made arrangements for our trip home..she was wonderful. What a worry, although we knew they would want us to disembark on time. Other than the airline difficulty, I loved the trip and would be interested in taking a river cruise in the future. Thank you all of the wonderful Viking staff aboard the Viking Sky--beautiful ship!!

Wonderful room...all the amenities of a top class hotel. The tiled bathroom floor, being heated, was a treat..Adequate lighting..great hairdryer! The toiletries were wonderful..The staff was excellent..ready to please and leaving little reminders on time changes, etc. Linens were so comfortable.
