This was our 3rd Viking trip--two on riverboats and this one on an ocean cruise. We boarded the Viking Sea in Stockholm and spent 14 days visiting countries along the Baltic Sea. My husband has a rare form of Parkinson's Disease, but he was able to participate in all embarkations and disembarkations, except for one when a rope handle entry ramp was used instead of the usual hard handle. The food was outstanding and we, of course. indulged ourselves a little more than needed. Both the ship and our cabin were kept in immaculate cleanliness and order by skilled, friendly cleaning people. Service was excellent. Someone was always there to meet our every need. The social director kept us well informed of all events and activities and made sure we met at the appropriate time for our group to go ashore. All shore excursions were led by guides who lived in the area, so each guide was quite knowledgeable about the history and events of the city and/or area in which we were traversing. A large number of additional excursions could be selected in addition to the included ones. We consider this one of the best trips we have had to date and we would definitely do a Viking excursion again.
Our cabin was quite adequate. We were able to unpack everything into the drawers, closet and shelves. There was room under the bed for our suitcases. This made the room quite spacious. The bathroom came with all necessities and offered additional storage. The heated floor was a luxury we didn't expect. The safe in the drawer unit was easy to use. The veranda was a since extra but it was often to cold and windy to use. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
