Relaxing, enjoyable; pleasant stateroom

Chose it by going online and reading reviews. I was attracted by the fact that there were no children, no gimmiks, no casinos. The food, while pleasant, wasn't spectacular, as I'd been told happens on a ...

Elegance and pampering at sea

I've always wanted to cruise Alaska but hate the large, 5000+ passenger cruise ships. Being a fan and loyal passenger with Viking River cruises, it was a no brainer to book with them when they announced their foray ...

As soon as I heard Viking was going to Alaska we reserved our room. Alaska had been on my bucket list. We had enjoyed our river cruise down the Rhine. We were able to include an old friend and husband which enhanced ...

Pre-cruise days in Vancouver not strictly worth it, because you see a lot of totem poles and nature you'll see in Alaska, but it's a beautiful city so there are no regrets. The vaunted Viking pre-boarding ...
