If i were to imagine an ideal cruise and bring it to life it would be a viking cruise.
The ship was divine. The food and beverages were world class. But most of all, the staff on the viking ve were absolutely wonderful. When we came to breakfast not a word was spoken, and our beverages were brought to our table. Everyone knew our first names and treated us like family after just the first couple of days aboard.
The cruise planning by viking showed and an in-depth knowledge of their customers. Each and every excursion was carefully planned for variety, content and length of time. The fact that there were only 120 passengers meant we got to actually meet and get to know people from around the world. We are still in contact with many we have met, and we often chat about where and when our next viking adventure will be.
