I love Viking! This was my third cruise withViking, a River Cruise “Amsterdam to Budapest”,Ocean Cruise “Into the Midnight Sun”, and this Expedition Cruise on the Octantis. I love the smaller ships, no children, thinking person’s cruise. The cruise on the Octantis was amazing. Being a research vessel. I loved visiting with the scientist on board and being in the lab. The excursions were varied and unique. The Inside dock for the launch was great as both my husband and I have mobility issues and being seniors appreciated being out of the elements while boarding the launch. The food was exceptional. We loved the buffet with a variety of offerings including king crab legs every night! The service was personal, friendly, and proactive. We received assistance at the buffet from our server and were always greeted by name and our favorite wine. I have traveled a great deal and experienced numerous cruise lines. Viking is now our preferred cruise line and we look forward to booking again soon.
Loved the Nordic Balcony!
