Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2022
Cabin: Deluxe Outside Stateroom

We chose the cruise because it was time to get back out there after the pandemic, plus the offer of free airfare was a contributing factor. We had never traveled with Viking but of course had heard of them. When we booked our tour, we didn't realize that there was only 1 elevator on the ship, from the main floor to the second floor. We knew we had a tiny room but the 14 stairs to go up for meals or excursions was a problem.

I also assumed we would be driven into town for our excursions, but that happened only the first day. As the week wore on, I became more tired. We gave up an excursion we had paid for because I couldn't face another walk into town on the same day.

The food was good but not as good as the large ship I had traveled on 4 months before. There were no waffles for breakfast, and I didn't discover there were pancakes available if you asked until the third day of our trip. Only one kind of half bagel was available.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Outside Stateroom

Tiny, but we knew that. Our cabin had problems finding an electrical outlet that worked. I had a Cpap machine, and my friend had to charge hearing aids nightly, as well as cell phones. We were told the problem stemmed from other guests plugging in too many items.

Port Reviews


I hadn't been to some of the cities we visited including Amsterdam so why not? Loved the city. Used the trams to get around and had some wonderful meals. Took a little bit to get used to all the bicycles but managed quite well. We were on our own here and walked at a more leisurely pace.
