The cruise offered three days in Israel; it offered free excursions at every port; it served free wine or beers at most meals; etc. Viking also has an excellent reputation, and the cruise went at a most convenient time for us. My wife has traveled on river cruises with Viking and loved them, but this was the first time either of us had a Viking sea cruise. We especially enjoyed the Italian restaurant but not so much the Asian restaurant. The menus for the main dining room were very varied and enabled us to enjoy our favorite dishes. We did not avail ourselves of the fitness room, but my wife did have some service at the spa, such as a massage and hair dressing. The lecture on the Bayeau tapestry we found very informative, especially as most of the elevator stages had exceollent, enlarged c opies of panels from the tapestry. Read Less

I had taken a river cruise on Viking in the past and felt very comfortable with them. I've found their ships very clean and staff very accommodating. Food was excellent with many choices. If you needed it fixed a special way they went out of their way to make it happen. Staff was always pleasant, friendly, courteous and professional. The tours well very informative and there were a number of choices. Activities were rated for activity level and very descriptive making it easy to pick ones you are comfortable with plus one can can do things on their own or stay on the ship. Our cabin was well stocked plus there was no hidden fees. Everything in the cabin is free from fees unlike a hotel. I will definitely cruise with them when I take another trip where they will be sailing. Many thank yous to the crew especially our steward. He wasnone of the best. Read Less

Went to see the Northern Lights and experience Norway where we had never visited. Due to weather we never saw the Northern Lights...The Norway Coast was spectacular and worth the experience. If I had to do the cruise over again I would like to go during the spring or summer - Norway is beautiful but hard to appreciate when it is cold and icy during the winter. That said, it was interesting during the winter and something we will never forget. The Viking Sky was a lovely ship and the attendants were great. We have no complaints with the service provided during the cruise and our room was excellent in design and the attendants were friendly and took care of our needs beyond expectations. Some of the onboard entertainment was excellent...some interesting...some a bit lacking. Some is designed for the academic which was a bit beyond our interest. Overall the only change we would consider is the time frame - winter in the far north was worthy of the experience but during a warmer time of year may have provided better shore experiences.
