Viking Ra Cruise Review by vvmanley
- Sail Date: May 2019
- Destination: Africa
- Cabin Type: Veranda Suite
There was a pianist/DJ playing pleasant lounge music each evening. There also were special performances by local entertainers.
The Ra has a small swimming pool and jacuzzi. The temperature was over 100 F each day of our cruise, so not much traffic in the jacuzzi.
The crew of this ship was excellent. Our room steward was most efficient. The bartenders and dining room crew were fun and engaged.
A special note about the two tour directors, Ahmed and Ihan. Incredibly knowledgable and outgoing. They made this cruise so much richer.
I don't think there is any place in the world that can out shine Egypt for shore excursions. The Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza, Valley of Kings and Queens, Temples at Karnak, Luxor, Dendara, Kom Ombo - every one was more than we expected.
Notes: Our suite had two very nice TVs, but no programming except soccer. Not even BBC. Children are not allowed on this cruise. The shore excursions require more physical exertion than you might expect if you have been on other river cruises. Sadly, many of our fellow cruisers spent most of the cruise on the ship because they couldn't manage the long walks with steps and very uneven footing.
