Viking is not our cup of tea.

This was our first Viking cruise. We cruise about 5-6 weeks a year and usually cruise Celebrity but have also enjoyed Royal Caribbean. For a change of pace and because the reviews were good, we decided to give ...

To be honest we took this cruise because there were not as many port visits, and so we could relax more on the ship, having cruise with Viking before, we know that the service on the ship is always excellent. ...
