My husband and I took this trip after seeing multiple top reviews on the Viking ocean cruises. There were comments about the cruise lines targeting mature (and yes) sophisticated travelers, it didn’t bother us because we enjoy quiet, non-chaotic vacations. While we’ve cruised several times before, this was our first booking the flight through the cruise line. Viking chose a good airline, though in retrospect we should have planned a few extra days predeparture in Lisbon.
I would highly recommend this cruise line to those who appreciate a more quiet luxury and all-inclusive value.
Clean, comfortable, ample storage, large shower, ample bathroom space
