Our cabin.

My sister and I have always wanted to see where our ancestors came from, Sweden and Norway, and what a way to go! Viking was the absolute best choice we could have made for ourselves. We loved our cabin, loved the ship, loved the food - never got bored and wish the trip had lasted at least another week. It really was the trip of a lifetime and I don't know how we'll ever top it. Great service, nice people on board, stunning ship decor, a fantastic spa, no kids running around, no pushing and shoving or long lines. It was EVERYTHING I could have wished for in a cruise. If I HAD to change one thing it would be to add a couple of sea days into the itinerary as I would have liked to have spent more time relaxing on that gorgeous ship. We loved the shore excursions - even the ones that were included at no cost. Wonderful, wonderful, experience and highly recommend to anyone that is even thinking about VIKING. VIKING DOES IT RIGHT!

Port Reviews

Bergen

Bergen is a great city to walk around. Be sure to go to the Floibanen. Its like a little monorail that takes you up to the top of the mountain. At the top, you get a beautiful view of Bergen, and if you're lucky, you can pet some mountain goats that roam the area.

Eidfjord

We loved walking around Eijfjord. The farmland area was breathtaking.

Stavanger

Make sure to visit the old town area. Cobblestone streets with fairytale-like homes and gardens. Not to be missed!

Kristiansand

We took the free excursion to an old church and cemetery. It was beautiful and worth it.

Gothenburg

We took the excursion to Stavros Island. Fun boat ride, beautiful island, great lunch and a lovely day just walking around the island. Highly recommend.

Aalborg

Again, we walked around Aalborg with the free walking tour. Well worth it. Our tour guide was amazing and we saw so much of this charming city.
