This was our first ocean cruise but we had been on 3 river cruises.We had some concerns about how we would cope being on the sea rather than on a river. We chose this cruise because it was short, with only the first day at sea and then a different port stops for the remaining 6 days. It was very close to a river cruise Itinerary. When we saw the promotion for this Viking Shores and Fiord cruise we both said that’s for us let’s try it.
The ship was incredible. Many different themed areas to sit and relax and never crowded, even though the cruise was full. The decor was just right not over the top or opulent, but pleasing to the eye, creating a very relaxing atmosphere.
The service on board was excellent, but never pushy, just the right level of attention.
Our cabin was a Penthouse Veranda. Very spacious, a comfortable bed and seating with excellent views.
Our cabin on deck 5 was well positioned close to the stairs and lifts we were easily able to get up to the World Cafe on deck 7 or down to the public areas and restaurants on decks 2 and 3.
