  3. Viking Rolf
We have heard how wonderful Viking is for years, but worried it was too expensive. The 2-for-1 promotion enabled us to take one. There was not one thing we could complain about! We've taken many ocean cruises (not on Viking) and loved all of them, but the level of professional and friendly service, the included tours at every stop, low number of passengers, no kids under 18, and the ports visited make Viking #1 in our book. Onboard entertainment was not offered nightly (as one experiences on ocean cruises) but we didn't care because our days were so full with excursions. We spent our evenings on the roof deck enjoying the scenery. That's another plus -- everyone on the ship can sit on the top deck at the same time; not so with 2,000+ cruise ships. We purchased the $100 certificates so we definitely will travel with Viking again, probably in 2020. Thank you!

BEST Cruise Ever!

  • D-Day Beaches
    My brother-in-law (who traveled with us) and I are Vietnam vets so we were extremely touched by the cemetery and the ceremony our Cruise Director Mimi led. Proud to be an American!

    Crowded and hot but well worth it.

    So much history and beauty! The highlight was the light show on Notre Dame Cathedral that our CD Mimi took us to. Awesome and something we'd never seen before.
