We chose this cruise because it stopped in countries we wanted to see. We had never been to any of these countries and we liked the option of seeing all of them. We spent several days in Stockholm prior to departing. We were able to leave our luggage at the port as we were too early for arrival, and visited a lovely photography museum at the port.

We were very happy with our cabin; it was comfortable, plenty of room for our luggage. Loved the bathroom. The ship was beautifully appointed. We spent some time exploring the ship, all levels to get our bearings. The ship offers quite a few amenities: a spa, massage, two pools, quiet spaces for reading, The dining options were excellent. Two dining restaurants require a reservation, but you can go in if there are openings. The main dining room offered menu options and seating for 2-4-6 and 8. We enjoyed the company of several couples on board and hooked up with them for our evening meals.

Shipboard entertainment was also excellent. The artists were quite good, the seminars by the historian were very helpful when preparing for a shore excursion. We took advantage of shore excursions at each port. The guides, the transportation, were all first class. We were able to sign up for most of the excursions we wanted. We would especially recommend the two day excursion in St. Petersburg. It included most of the sites covered by other excursions i that city and you don't have the overhead of leaving and returning several times in a day. You head out in the morning and return in the evening.

Finally we want to commend Viking for their staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable; if they know what you like to drink, it will be brought to youj without your asking. Cabin staff make sure your room is always clean, towels and bedding are clean, and any particular needs have been addressed. Awesome. We will definitely travel with Viking again.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

We were a bit put off at the cost of this excursion, but on reflection, we think it was the best way to see St. Petersburg. It incorporated many of the other excursions and we did not have to come and go, come and go, from the ship for each excursion.

Rostock (Warnemunde)

Viking handled the excurions into Germany very well. We boarded a train, sat grouped by excursion and easily got on and off. Our guide was excellent.

Eidfjord

We spent time walking in the little town and enjoying the scenery.
