Review summary

We loved visiting a Norway, truly a wonderful experience. Our third Viking trip in 12 months- love the line, but not quite up to our experience on the Sun. That was a tad disappointing for us.

Only the performers that stay with the ship. Nothing special.

The real Arctic! Cold, snowy and the most beautiful starry night that you’ve ever seen!

Small port, closed upon Sunday, but beautiful trekking country.

Bergen, Norway

4 out of 5
Arrived 9 hours late so it was closed up. We took a midnight stroll, enjoyed the lights, the shop windows and the stars in the sky.
