Numb, as in unbelievable, Numb as in over whelming, Numb as in booked another cruise with Viking for next year.

We had seen the TV documentary "Mighty Ships" showcasing the "Viking Sky" and a week later were booked for our cruise on the "Sea", I had Viking do all our bookings for our transportation to Oslo, as well as our Oslo and Bergen extensions. We were not disappointed, as everything went well, with ground transportation, the 2 hotels we stayed in, as well as the train trip between Oslo and Bergen. I beloved they saved us about $4,000 Cdn, (for 2 people) as I booked the airfare using a dummy account, and was well satisfied with the outcome, and that didn't include booking hotels or train trip.

Upon our arrival at the cruise terminal, we were informed we would leave Bergen a day early (disappointed) and miss the Shetland and Faroe Islands (disappointed), but would have two extra ports in Iceland (Wow), due to stormy seas as the remainder of Hurricane Dorian hit the area. A few other changes were made due to rough seas, but Viking and the Captain made the changes ahead of time, allowing replacements and relocations so our cruise wasn't days at seas. This allowed us to cross the Arctic Circle, and spend extra time in Iceland, a place we might have never returned to, as well attended to the safety of the ship and passengers / crew aboard.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

Very well laid out, bed was comfortable, linens sparkled and the bathroom was very spacious with seperate shelf and drawer on each side of the sink. Mini bar included softdrinks, nuts and mini chocolate bars and was maintined throughout the cruise. Michael, our room stewart, responded to requests immediately, and kept the room clean and stocked and was also very cheerful and pleasant to talk to. We did use the baclony, which is spacious with 2 chairs and table. All funiture and fixtures in room and balcony were good quality and are well maintained.
