Wanted to try a more inclusive cruise line with a smaller ship and higher quality over the main cruise lines. Viking really delivered. We were having lunch approximately 5 minutes of arriving at the cruise terminal. Ship is beautiful, food was fantastic no crowds. I enjoyed every second. Loved the high quality Viking offers. The first night in the restaurant was one of the best meals in recient memory. The buffet for dinner was also fantastic. Lots of choices, king crab legs etc. they also set up a cooking station outside grilling fish and various meats. They also have great cappuccino machines. The room is very well designed with lots of room and first run movies My only complaint and hopefully it’s not a trend to start charging extra is they are charging $10 for fitness classes that used to be included. Getting off the last morning was so nice. We hate the other cruise lines that have thousands of rude passengers pushing and shoving all trying to leave at once. They wanted you out of your room by 8 am and off the ship at your leasure by 9:45. Viking might charge more than the bigger cruise lines but I think it’s more than worth it.

Viking does so much right
