We wanted to learn more, and experience going through the locks. And the bonus was all the wonderful ports we visited! Crew was phenomenal….I was so impressed. Food was delicious (AND plentiful). I visited the spa on 4 different occasions for 4 different services….it was wonderful as well. AND I thought reasonably priced. We enjoyed the thermal spa too….just needed to book a date and time. We purchased the silver spirits package as well, and I highly recommend to do so. Upgraded wines at meals (choices) and no worries about racking up a bill.
We have since booked an Anartica expedition cruise in December, a West Indies ocean cruise in February and a river cruise (Viet Nam ) next November.
With all the inclusions, we have found Viking to be a tremendous value. So educational and fun at the same time….
