Another cruise to remember.

We have been on many Viking cruise ships and this one takes the cake. The ship is new and beautiful. The staterooms are spacious and well designed, better than most hotels. Going to Egypt with all the creature comforts and seeing so many sites with great guides and unobtrusive protection made for a fabulous time.

2022 Viking cruise on the Nile

I would definitely recommend this ship. the crew was very attentive from the Cabin stewards up to the Hotel Director. The food was varied and delicious and the tour guides were excellent--highly educated and informative. Together with the drivers and security detail, our tour guides made sure that everything went smoothly and that we always felt safe. They also helped us navigate the crowds at the sites and made sure we didn't miss any of the highlights.
