Even with itinerary changes due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this trip was terrific. Yes, we were disappointed at the elimination of St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Tallinn, and some of the substitutes did not hold their level of interest, but overall it was still great. This was our second Viking cruise, and everything was perfect. The food is wonderful. Even their "non-specialty" standard restaurant was better than the specialty restaurants on other cruises we have taken. The excursion selection was very good, with even the free ones worth taking. Service everywhere is impeccable.

Viking cruises are all "over 18", which we love. No dealing with other people's screaming kids.

We also recommend using their air booking service (including the $100/pp extra fee for personal service). It's a little more expensive than doing it yourself. However, the San Diego friends we were traveling with were informed by Delta THAT MORNING that their Amsterdam to Detroit flight (2nd of 3 legs) was cancelled. They called Viking's Travel Hotline and within 5 minutes had new flights booked all the way home.
