Great Trip

Sail Date: October 01, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Viking is a great cruise line and that is why we chose their cruise/land tour. They have a wonderful program coordinator named Ehab (Ihab) that is the best tour guide we have ever had. It is important to know that the ships that Viking uses in Egypt are not their own, so the quality is not what you would expect from Viking. Still, it is the best trip we have ever taken.

Pros: Egypt is a fantastic place to visit

Cons: None

Recommends Viking Royal Lotus? Yes!

Ship Quality
This is not a Viking ship and the quality is not there. Viking plans to have their own ships in the future (we were told).
