"There's a lot to love about Viking Cruise Lines globe-spanning itineraries and luxurious ships, which feature a contemporary, Scandinavian style and smaller ships that can get into ports larger ships can't reach. Mainly, passengers love this cruise line for what it isn't. There are no casinos. No kids under 18. No umbrella drinks, photographers, or interior staterooms - everyone gets a room with a view. And the company offers all-inclusive cruises. In addition to accommodations, meals, and onboard activities, fares include wine, beer, and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, 24-hour room service, one shore excursion in each port, Wi-Fi, laundry services, and airport transfers."
