Being 25% Swedish/Norwegian, I have been interested in traveling in this area for years. This was my first real ocean cruise, but 6th time with Viking. I prefer the Viking River Cruises.
What I liked:
The ship is wonderful. It is nicely decorated. There are ample stairs and elevators. We loved our room with a balcony where we could actually sit and enjoy the ocean view. The heated floors in the bathroom were very comfortable. The bed and linens were just right. The free laundry (available on every floor with staterooms) was much appreciated. It was nice to not have to pack clothing for every day of the trip.
