  3. Viking Sun
We chose this cruise specifically to experience the midnight sun, but unfortunately shortly after crossing the Arctic Circle the weather became an issue. Still we did experience twenty-four hour daylight which nevertheless was awesome. Sailing into the fjords was a marvellous experience. Visiting Bergen and seeing Bryggen Wharf was fascinating. The visit to Ovre Eide Farm was very worthwhile experiencing a snippet of Norwegian farm life. ...And the hospitality and Norwegian food was so tasty. Geiranger was very interesting, especially the drive to Eagles Bend Overlook travelling along eleven switchbacks and a magnificent view from this high location. Djupvatn Lake was refreshing still with unmelted ice and snow up on the slopes. Lofoten would have been more interesting had we had a native Norwegian guide who was more knowledgeable about the local area. Tromsø’s Arctic Cathedral looked impressive from a distance and regret that a visit was omitted from the Panoramic Tour. The multi lane tunnel is an engineering achievement. Honningsvåg village looked charming from a distance. The drive to Nordkapp with the odd glimpse of reindeer was interesting. The Sami outpost had many interesting crafts for purchase. Getting right up to a reindeer and Sami herder was a delight. We regret not being able to take in optional tours due to conflicts.

Norway Was an Excellent experience.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Comfortable, adequate space, excellent climate control, very quiet, amenities more than adequate, very clean and excellent maintenance by cabin stewards who were always pleasant and most accommodating. (Thank you Cvita and Mikko.) Room service was excellent.
Our travel advisor, Doron Lazarovitz, was outstanding and attended to every detail with our complete satisfaction. (Strongly recommend you request his guidance.)
Other crew members who also were most accommodating were Yuri ,Erald, Courtney, Mila, Ravi, Dustin, Pankaj and many others whose name tags I was unable to read.
Dining experience and food always was very good.
