Everything was great from the time my wife and i were picked up from the airport upon arrival to being dropped off at the airport upon departure. We even got a call by a Viking representative who wanted to make sure we arrived at the airport ok for our flight. The hotels provided by Viking were top notch and there was always some one there from Viking to give advise on touring the city before the actual cruise. We were greeted by what seamed to be the full crew as we embarked the Viking ship Alsvin. The ship Alsvin was impeccable as i saw it. As for myself I especially enjoyed the educational tours and personal touches the crew provided. My wife is still talking about how great the food and the passengers she meet was. My wife and i have cruised on other lines but none like Viking. We have been home 3 days and already booked a Viking Iconic Western Mediterranean cruise. As for the price of our Viking cruise, not being "nickeled and dimed" and being totally carefree, PRICELESS.
