Don't expect the ships activities like most of the bigger ship.

A beautiful and clean ship. Read carefully the excursions and make sure they cover what you are interested. This itinerary is not conducive to wheelchair/walker use (unless you plan to stay on the ship at every port).

Book extras with a private company it is a lot cheaper. We added 3 day in Iceland on our and saved 50% of what they were asking.

Book a cabin in the center of the ship between the two elevator hubs. This will give you the shortest distance to get to all the major amenities aboard the ship. This helped us with my mother having a cane and or walker.

Sign up for your chosen excursions as soon as you are able. The excursions were wonderful, and there were lots of options, but to get your chosen time slot, early is best. Also, so many passengers book a second ocean trip while on board that is important to sign up with their booking agent early, or you may not get time to book onboard and garner all the special discounts and benefits available with an onboard booking.

Carefully read Viking excursion information carefully and book on a timely basis. “Included” excursions must be booked just like purchased excursions.

Take advantage of exploring all of the nooks and crannies as you will be amazed of all the surprises this ship has to offer. Also arrange a tour of the bridge; the staff was welcoming to us during our visit and went into great detail about the state of the art equipment that drives this beautiful ship.

Make sure you vary where you eat. Each food venue has its own specialty, so enjoy each area.

Experience all of the ship. Walk around and get to know the layout. There are a lot of different areas that are great to just hang with new friends and different areas to eat and experience different food options. Explore the entire ship

We did the included tours and none of the optional tours. If you plan to do optional tours, consider booking them independently, i.e., not with Viking. The optional tours seemed very expensive. Several people we met on board indicated they did independent tours for MUCH less than Viking was charging for the comparable tour.

This is not a cruise for people expecting rock climbing, water rides, rap music, a casino or lots of clitz and bling. Also no annoying photographers or art auctions. Just like living at a fine hotel that moves from port to port.
