Viking was well organized and ship was stunning. Loved the Thermal Suite--try everything! Push all the buttons including the one in the snow room!!

Happy and cordial staff everywhere. Our balcony penthouse(not a penthouse) was perfect with tons of storage. Easy covid testing everyday. Unique vessel sinks to wash your hands just inside the dining venues.

The average age on our cruise we estimated to be 75. Ship had 435 guests.

Cabin Review

Lovely and very functional. Tons of storage. The bed and pillows were very much to our liking. We had a large window and door to balcony which I really liked. Good lighting. Plugs everywhere including usb ports. Good hairdryer.

A large walk-in shower---didn't miss the tub at all. Comfortable vanity with lighted mirror. Sofa, chair and coffee table. Refrigerator was stocked with complimentary soft drinks and mixers plus four small bottles of liquor which was replenished daily. Free bottled water offered everywhere but room steward provided in cabin as well.

Came with a great room steward!!!! Top notch!

The cabin was immaculate! Bathroom spotless with big thirsty towels. Nice toiletries.

Two bottles of hand sanitizer, wipes, masks also provided along with the test tubes to spit in every morning. Also each of us was given a contact tracer disk that were wore everywhere. Not a big deal. Grateful that they were doing everything to keep us safe. It worked!

Port Reviews


Unbelievably crowded! Not possible to social distance. Last time we were there it was quiet with few tourist. Parked ourselves in a cafe on the main square and people watched while drinking a local beer--Ozujsko--excellent.
