We wanted to see the Northern Lights and we wanted the lap of luxury that Viking offers. We received both, luckily with the Northern Lights, and gladly and affirmatively with Viking. From the first greetings to the last goodbye they all make you feel like every part of your stay with them matters. The ship is immaculate, which is important to me. The food was excellent, the entertainment is constant, varied, and mixed between the venues so you get a variety of the acts in the different places on the ship. The young entertainers were fun to watch and 'get to know'. Their energy is infectious.
The public rooms are finely kept and comfortable in different ways. They offer serenity, or public mixing. You can either/or. Within five minutes you can be away from everybody or you can be in a room full of people smiling and enjoying each other's company. It is such a great set up.
