Viking has the reputation of providing one of the best values in Ocean Cruising and on a recommendation from a friend I took the plunge. My wife and I have cruised a number of times and usual use Celebrity and enjoyed our cruises with them. The one downside to the major cruise lines is that you get nickel and dimed to death. Alternative restaurants are are not included in the listed prices and you get assaulted by photographer who want to take your photograph.

With Viking Cruises the alternative restaurants are no charge. There are no photographers. No seating assignments in the regular restaurants. No children under 18 years of age. Also, there is no charge for beer and wine at any lunch or dinner. They do offer a drink package with upgraded drinks if you choose the option. My wife and I found that we could do without the package and were quite satisfied with the standard offerings. The staff of Viking is their best asset and they provide service with a smile and we found that they would go out of their way to learn your likes and dislikes in providing service. Another additional benefit was the laundry machines located on each deck of the ship. They are free and save you a lot of money in cleaning fees.

We did spend 8 days at sea and we wondered going into the cruise if we would have enough to do during sea days. It turned out that we did with the educational lectures provided by Viking. The Fitness rooms are a bit smaller than we're used to but very adequate. The entertainment is a scaled back due to the size of the ship and the entertainment venues. However, we enjoyed the entertainment on the smaller scale and it was offset by the lower number of passengers.

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse Veranda

The cabin was spacious and well appointed. Each Viking cabin is a Veranda and the only differences the size of the veranda in each given category
