VIKING ADVENTURE by ldorge

We would heartily recommend this cruise to anyone who enjoys the cruise experience. It is not geared to families with children - thank you. The staff and crew definitely have had excellent training in attending to the expectations of the passengers. The food was good and the cabins and public areas were always clean and well-cared for. I am not sure why the rating does not add up to a "5" as that would be our recommendation.

Scandinavian Voyage by leejb

We also cruised to Eidfjord, Norway. Beautiful fjord. Included tour here was terrible, a 20 minute bus ride to museum, 2 hours alloted, only needed 30 minutes. Small town and there was not much to do the rest of the time in port. Included tours to Eidfjord, Bergen, & Berlin need to be revamped. This is advertised as all-inclusive, therefore each included tour should allow for a good experience in each port of call. In the places mentioned, it is necessary to purchase an optional tour for that good experience. This cruise was mostly very good. The itinerary was very interesting and it's a great part of the world to visit. I think if Viking makes a few changes it will be a great cruise.

Baltic Sea Cruise by gustafson89

Cruise was great, but the pre-cruise excursion to Iceland was not worth the money. Viking should have planned an excursion of some sort on the day we all arrived and made arrangements for us to get into our rooms early. We sat in the hotel lobby for over 6 hours with nothing to do until we were finally allowed into our rooms. Most of us had traveled overnight and were extremely tired.

The sites were fantastic. The ship was very good. The food was very good. The service was excellent. The shore excursions left a lot to be desired. Some were cancelled and the there was little concern by the on board shore staff.

Beautiful Ship and Itinerary by Cruiser82960248

Favorite part and the reason for selecting this one was the cities it stopped at to visit.  Improvements on this itinerary would be (1) Notify early on that a Gondola Ride would be available on the first evening in Venice.  Had a frustrating time trying to find out how we could get one on our own.  And then when it was announced on the website, it was more frustrating making a reservation as it indicated space available but wouldn't accept the credit card.  Finally, after numerous tries, we were confirmed.  (2) Included excursions/tours were not very desirable.  When Florence is listed on the itinerary, one would expect an included tour there.  The included tour of Toulon was a waste of time.  We bought more excursions than anticipated.  It was a very good cruise but recommend not going over Easter weekend as the crowds are overwhelming; example, impossible to walk through the streets of Corfu on Good Friday.

Plan your cruise very carefully. List port times first, then plan your excursions. The earlier in a port you do an excursion the better. Sometimes we ran into the problem that we arrived somewhere, our tour was several hours later but there was not enough time to go ashore & return for the tour. So our free time was compromised.

We started in Bergen so we added a 3 day tour in Iceland beforehand. I would not xtend in Stockholm - too long.

We started in Berge so we went to Iceland first for three day. I would recommend adding a couple days in Stockholm on the back end. Also hire your personal guide for Berlin or you will waste your time.
