We choose Viking because it is the best cruise line in the World. No gambling and no children. No upcharges and no table selling. The staff are always accommodating and trying to please! The rooms are spacious and always refreshed each day. The food is plentiful and available all the time. In fact, where can you get unlimited King Crab and Lobster? Really enjoyed the land tours and the tour guides, they were both entertaining and knowledgeable. And if you wanted to skip the land tours and go out on your own, the staff was available with ideas, places and directions. Additionally, the land tours were usually completed in time to return to the boat and have lunch, leaving the rest of the afternoon to swim, spa, sleep or catch-up on some reading.The evenings were both quiet and fun. You could relax on the deck, dance under the stars or listen to live music! We will be going again.
