Alaska was a location we had always wanted to visit and when we received advance notification from Viking in December 2016, we booked immediately. We have cruised with Viking before (river and sea) and everything they offer is first class. Their smaller ships allow access to ports that larger ships cannot access and the Alaska cruise was one that goes further north than the 'normal' cruises.
The ship is fantastic and offers so much - outside cabins for all; superb restaurants - from the World Café to the Chef's table and Manfredi's - all offer superb food with no additional charge for the last two restaurants - great quality and a little bit special. The ship also offers a great spa and two swimming pools (one an infinity at the back of the ship). There are plenty of areas to sit and relax - the Wintergarden or the Explorers' Lounge are so comfortable - either to read, nap or just take in the 'views'.
The staff are so warm and friendly and really can't do enough for you - they genuinely want you to have a great time. Entertainment on board is excellent - from the shows in the theatre, to the musicians who perform in the Atrium and the Torshavn 'nightclub' - they all provide entertainment that is brilliant.
Viking provide inclusive shore visits at all ports and are always worth utilising - they provide a great insight the place you are visiting and the use of local guides helps provide so much information.
We would certainly do this cruise again, Alaska is a fantastic and unique place to visit!
Spacious, comfortable and provides everything that you need - including a balcony, lounge area and a great bathroom.
