First of all, this cruise has a wonderful itinerary and spends the 16 days in the right places. We started in Oslo, and spent a few days there beforehand on our own. If you’re not comfortable doing that, take advantage of Vikings pre-sail offering. Oslo is a must see. We took the scenic train to Bergen, again on our own but Viking offers this as well. The scenery especially of the glaciers is stunning. The 3plus days in the Norwegian fjords is lovely. Spectacular scenery and great activities. 2 days in St Petersburg was enough for what we wanted, and the remaining mostly full days everywhere else were also enough to get a taste of the rich history and food! The ship itself is 5*. The service was great and to a person the staff was friendly, helpful and one step ahead of us. The food, honestly, was some of the best we’ve ever had and we are well travelled (4 of us from major metropolitan areas) . On our day at sea, we went to a cooking demo with the Executive chef, Eric (a hoot and we learned a ton), took a cooking class (small group of 9) and then went to the spa for a massage (inexpensive @ $135 for 50mins) . Then it was cocktails on our deck. Our cabin (we upgraded a few levels) was a decent size, well equipped and our mini bar was replenished daily. We also participated in a few yoga classes I can’t say enough about this cruise, but if you’re at all considering it, take it. You will be so glad that you did.

Take this amazing cruise on this fabulous ship
