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 ...

My husband has always wanted to go to Alaska and when Viking made it available we decided to book. We knew Viking had a smaller size ship and I was a little hesitant because I get sea sick but he assured me that ...

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 ...
