We chose this trip due to the Norwegian itinerary and the 7 day trip fit into our work schedule. We have cruised large ships and small, including very small ships of under 100 passengers and many of the larger lines with mega ships so we have a good basis of comparison. This was our first trip with Viking and the entire experience from embarkation to debarkation and everything in between was flawless. The ship is considered 'small' at 900 passengers. The boarding process was the fastest ever, and we have taken over 30 cruises! The ship itself is well designed, nicely furnished, but in that clean Scandinavian way. The staff was very friendly and efficiency abounded everywhere. The buffet area was well organized, and the food quite good. Despite having a nice main dining room, and two specialty restaurants, many guests enjoyed the themed dinners in the buffet without the need to change clothes from the days touring. The food came out of the open kitchen with service from two sides, and they were happy to cook to order if requested. The Italian restaurant was excellent as well, with service to match. The ships tours, many of which are included in the cruise fare were well organized and very good. We did some optional tours including the food tour in Oslo and bike riding down from Flam (actually Myrdal) after the train trip up. The guides were all excellent and again every aspect was well organized. This was great itinerary to get a feel for the Norwegian fjords, culture and people. Wish we had more time for a longer trip though!

Our penthouse veranda was very comfortable, and well laid out. We even enjoyed the guest lecturers, one was an English journalist who was quite interesting and entertaining. We did not see the production shows though.

Overall a great trip and would definitely take another Viking Ocean cruise again
