Review summary

Viking runs an outstanding cruise, included excursions at each port, supplemented with optional excursions, free internet (extremely slow speeds), free business center. Just not for the person who wants a large ship with many activities and a casino.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Not just much to do. Some speakers or applicable/timely topics, a few games but that was about it. If in port and excursions there was nothing to do on the ship. Nicely equipped fitness center.


4 out of 5
Shows and entertainers were excellent. The Cruise Director, Beven Addinsall was unbelievably talented. He even staged his own hour signing show to a standing room only crowd.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff and crew were the most friendly and professional of any we have experienced. There was never any interaction less than favorable.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is extremely comfortable. Multiple seating areas. Library sections all over the ship. The ship was maintained spotlessly.
