We joined the Viking Sky at its first port Pisa due to an airline delay. From the minute we called to explain that we would join the cruise a day late Viking handled everything. They met us at Pisa airport drove us to the ship and found and delivered our luggage that never made it to Pisa. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The food and wine was excellent with good service. We often went up to the World cafe before dinner just to get some sushi and jumbo shrimp. The living room bar was nice for an after dinner drink or coffee. The staff were friendly and attentive and even made my wife who had lost her voice a special tea that one of the waiters said his grandmother had made him when he was sick.
We went on 2 included excursions and 2 excursions we paid extra for. The excursions requiring extra payments were definitely a cut above those included.
The cabin was spacious and well designed with enough storage. It was very quiet. The only time we heard anyone was when we had our balcony door open and the couple. in the next room were out on their balcony. We really liked having sparkling water and a coffee maker in the room.
The bathroom was large with good counter and storage space and a wonderful shower with good pressure and a glass door.
The included tour was excellent.
We were able to walk into town from the ship and explored on our own
Viking provided a free bus into town. We explored on our own and got some great photos
We took the included tour and it was very good.
We have been to Barcelona before so took the train to Taragona one day and to Girona the next
