Beautiful ship; wonderful service

My wife and I had never done an ocean cruise, but had done 2 river cruises with Viking, so we were curious to see how we thought they would compare. We chose the cruise we did, because, frankly, it wasn't exotic. ...

Booked Viking Sky for our next cruise as soon as we got home

This ship has a surprising spaciousness for a smaller ship, and it took me almost a week to figure out why: every cabin is an exterior room with balcony, so there's lots of extra space inside. The decor is lovely - ...
