We absolutely love Viking Ocean cruises! We have cruised on other lines before and feel we get more from the Viking experience. People truly do enjoy learning here! It was nice to hear one of our guides in Iceland who stated how respectful Viking guests are in comparison to other cruise lines. Despite the somewhat stressful excursion and specialty restaurant booking process, we feel like we got excellent experiences! FYI, book early or you may be stuck with nothing!! I had to schedule my excursions from work on the day that scheduling opened up!! The food is good with plenty of options including daily fish offerings, Chinese, Indian, Italian, and American. There is absolutely no need to bring a converter with plenty of USB ports, European, and 220V plugs in each state room. We enjoyed the lectures from Ivy League scholars, as well! We can't wait until the next trip!
