Viking Sea Cruise Review by Lde4024

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

We have been on several cruise lines before, but this was definitely the BEST! They do not nickle and dime you to death...even doing your own laundry was free...the crew was one of the best we have experienced. They were very friendly and accommodating.

The included tours were quick tours around a city to help you get your bearings, nothing extra special, but that was expected. The optional excursions had enough active ones to choose from (among them hiking, biking and kayaking) to keep us happy as we tend to be much younger (and more easily bored) than most of the other passengers.

The size of the ship was just right so you didn’t feel overcrowded. We also became familiar with different crew members in different parts of the ship, who always had a friendly hello for us and were always ready to point us in the right direction, if needed.

The entertainment was good as well. The on board wi-fi was a little slow, but it was mostly available and totally useable..again, no extra charge like we have experienced on other cruise lines.

The food was very good, even at the buffet. The food at the specialty restaurants was exceptional (and no extra charge).

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse veranda 4024

We upgraded our usual cabin and were very happy we did. We had plenty of drawer storage for all of our clothes so we could totally unpack. We also had enough room to sit and play a game in our room, if we wanted. Our friends had a cabin next to us that was not the same class as ours (veranda, I think) and the room seemed much smaller and cramped...not enough clothes storage for them. The room we had also included replenishing the mini bar daily (no extra charge), so we had a snack available to us for all the excursions we went on.

Rainy weather kind of spoiled the bus tour, and we couldn’t even take pictures. It was pretty, though.

The rain let up in time for us to do the electric assist biking...it was phenomenal... both the scenery and the biking.
