We booked Wake of the Vikings almost as soon as it was published; we loved the itinerary, and the out-of-the-ordinary route. We really wanted the Bergen extension, which was already fully booked. We knew we could do it on our own, and at the same time, we like the Viking process, where they help handle all the baggage and transfers, so we called, almost every week. Finally, we said to ourselves "this is the last call" when we called about the extension, and to our shock and delight, someone had cancelled, and we had the spot.

Our flights were comfortable and uneventful. Viking Travel worked with us to get what we needed.

We loved the Bristol Hotel in Oslo, loved its central location and the wonderful walkability of Oslo. We had a great dinner there, and began to meet some of our ship mates. Ditto for the location of the Bryggen Radisson Blu, where we could walk to super restaurants, the fish market, and local sights.

We choose to have a little more room because we like spending time in our room. The Penthouse Veranda suits us perfectly. It has plenty of room to stow our gear, it gives us space for dressing and sharing without a lot of awkward "excuse me's" and it is in a very quiet part of the ship.
