Hadn't been to four of the countries and looked forward to seeing them. Have always enjoyed the Viking river cruises so wanted to try an ocean cruise. Some of the tours were a bit disappointing-a three hour plus ride and then spending 30 to 45 minutes to see the area and another 3 to 3 and a half hour bus ride to return to the ship. Petra was amazing as were the pyramids and Luxor too. The living room areas were very nice - there were so many areas to have quiet time. Enjoyed the high tea at 4pm each day. The pools were never crowded. Loved Mamsen's for the Norwegian foods. The Spa was great and interesting to have a snow room. Enjoyed the guests-found many interesting people with whom to chat. The Captain was the best! He was very friendly and approachable. The rest of the crew was very pleasant and helpful as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
It would be nice to have a magnifier makeup mirror in the bath room as well as a mirror to see the back of one's head. The Stewards, Delia and Bombang, were excellent.
Enjoyed the cruise and prefer to only cruise with Viking after this experience. Our first with Viking ocean cruises. We have enjoyed 4 River cruises with Viking.
