Always wanted to go to Alaska...and Viking was our choice... (3rd cruise with Viking ) We will always chose Viking ! The cleanliness the friendliness the food the cabin ...everything was fantastic !! We made some new friends and still stay in contact with them. We have done 2 river cruises and now the ocean cruise (all 3 with Viking ) We will forever recommend this cruise line to our friends and on our posts in Facebook. The weather was perfect...even though we packed sweatshirts and sweaters...it was perfect cruising weather ...with only about 4 hours of rain the entire time. I need to use 150 words in this review but Ive run out of compliments to this wonderful cruise line. Our experience to Alaska was everything and more than we had hoped for... If anyone ever asks you for recommendation for cruising...tell them about Viking !! We plan next Christmas in Europe on a river cruise...this year was totally sold out !!
