My husband and I chose Viking because a Viking River Cruise had shown what attention could be shown to a cruise passenger. We chose The Romantic Mediterranean Cruise because after 40 years in the Navy, my husband still had not sailed the Mediterranean Sea. Was it a good Choice? Yes!! Shall I compare it to the Rhine River Cruise? The size of the two ships was apparent, of course. The Longship Egil had two decks and top deck, the Viking Sky seemed to reach to the sky. On the back of my AAA card I made a little map with the eating places on one end and the meeting places or others places to go to in their place on the card. And my stateroom well marked so I would not get lost. The beauty of the public areas reflected the homelands of the owners in calm colors with dramatic artistic flourishes.. The stateroom layout would be familiar to anyone who had been aboard a river cruise except it was more spacious, of course. The closet was ample, with a panel of drawers on the open end of the hallway. The desk opened up to a divided and lighted make-up vanity, often appreciated by females. In my Deluxe Veranda Cabin, the seating area was ample.as was the veranda space. Much appreciated was the heated bathroom floors. Luxury, indeed. The food was equally fantastic on both river and oceangoing cruises. My husband and I enjoyed the World Cafe more than the Restaurant simply because it was more informal and more relaxed. Since it was buffet, I could take smaller portions fitting my appetite. And we enjoyed breakfast in our room when we had an early tour. If requested at 6:00-6:15, it came promptly at 6:00!! One big difference was that the ports of call were wonderful,beautiful harbors. Pulling into dock was an adventure in itself, though the river boats had the adventure of going through locks from one elevation to the next. River boat was weak on night entertainment while the Sky had excellent entertainment. We had spoof Operas with singers who were obviously up and coming stars. We had a Beatles concert under the pool roof and a Abba concert in the Theater, both very well done.Viking recruited the best to be had for the shows. Service superb on both. Cabin friendly and helpful. All waiters attentive. Best of any cruise line we have used. Shore excursions were appropriate for location, the tour leaders well versed in material and were well worth the money. The included excursions seemed very well thought out. River cruised handled those with mobility problems by having one bus with those who chose to be on it. On the Sky, the person in charge of shore excursions was not sensitive to the needs of those with mobility problems in their organization or the need for adaption when there was a change in schedule. The only problem on what otherwise was a wonderful trip. Would I go again? I would choose Viking again. I like feeling special. I like feeling like what I want matters and Viking will provide.. But I would go on another river cruise. But if you like swimming pools and nightly entertainment, then Viking Sky is for you. Read Less
