Viking Sky Cruise Review by fred_d

  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

We've wanted to visit these countries for some time and have enjoyed a Viking river cruise. In addition, we preferred to travel on a smaller ship, rather than a typical large ocean cruise ship.

The Viking Sky has a well-designed interior: the public areas, like atriums, are spacious and attractively decorated.

Our cabin, while not luxurious, was exactly what we needed, as we did not spend much time in it.

The variety and quality of food was very good, not exquisite dining, but one cannot realistically exquisite when they are feeding over 900 passengers. We believe that the food was as good as can be expected on a cruise ship.

A group of four talented vocalists backed up by four very capable musicians provided most of the entertainment. Of the various shows they performed, we especially enjoyed their tributes to Abba and the Beatles. In addition to these shows, the cruise director organized game nights and comedy acts.

We enjoyed visiting all of the ports. The guides provided informative and interesting background information on the locales we visited. The optional excursions covered a wide range of activities. We wished only that Viking offered more than one "included" excursion per port.

An important feature of the ship for me was its fitness center which was large and well-equipped with elliptical trainers, stationary bikes, treadmills, resistance machines and free weights.

The staff and crew provided amazing service. They were always friendly and showed interest in the passengers. Every one of them we met tried to make our cruise a pleasant satisfying experience.

Cabin Review

Cabin deluxe veranda 4092

We had one of the more basic cabins; yet it was adequate for our needs, since we intended only to sleep and rest there. The bathroom was quite efficient and practical in that provided well-organized storage and shelving. The staff kept cabins meticulously clean.
