My wife and I have always wanted to visit the Baltic and this cruise was the perfect fit. We researched many other cruise lines and Viking offered the best itinerary. We joined the Vikings group on Facebook and read all of the reviews and found that many of the reviewers were repeat Vikings Cruisers who rated Viking as their preferred cruise line. The Jupiter was a new ship that received high reviews. We liked the fact that Viking would handle our flight arrangements and included cultural excursions at most of the ports of call. We chose to purchase additional excursions and was extremely pleased with the two day excursion in St Petersburg which just so happened to coincide with my wife’s birthday. (an added benefit).
The food and beverage selection was exceptional. I have a dietary restriction and the Food and Beverage manager did everything in his power to accommodate me.
All the staff on the Jupiter were professional, friendly and accommodating. Our suite was well appointed and comfortable. Our suite attendant was extremely attentive and went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met. The free laundry service was a huge benefit.
We have cruised on many other cruise lines and can without qualification state that Viking ranks at the very top of the list. We will definitely cruise with Viking again.
The suite was very well appointed and comfortable. The furnishings were new and tastefully done. There were plenty of 110v outlets and the lighting in the bathroom and vanity areas were more than adequate. Suite 8001!is located at the end of the hall next to an exit; however, the noise level was not that discernible. Overall a very nice suite.
