Having loved every Viking River Cruise we've ever been on, (and having been disappointed with other ocean cruise lines,) we decided to put Viking to the test. We could not be happier. Viking is a class act in every way!
We have been on less expensive cruises, but by the time they nickel and dime you to death, it comes out about even.
Viking gives you a free excursion at every port. This can cost hundreds of dollars each PER PERSON on other cruise lines, but Viking includes it in the price of their trips.
The cabin was spacious, very clean and well-appointed. The refrigerator, complete with beverages and snacks is replenished daily and it's all at no charge. Hot water in the shower is plentiful, the floor is heated, the rooms are quiet...you cannot hear your neighbors, We spent much time on the balcony, sitting at the table, drinking coffee or wine, enjoying the views.
