I recently had the opportunity to take a 14 night cruise on Viking Sky sailing on Viking’s Into the Midnight Sun itinerary. I’ve cruised all around the world but I’ll get right to the point. It was the most incredible cruise I’ve ever taken. What made this cruise so special? Here are just a few reasons why you should take Viking’s Into the Midnight Sun cruise.
Itinerary – Viking sails this itinerary from London to Bergen and in reverse from Bergen to London. We sailed from London to Bergen and if you had the choice, I would choose to begin in London. Why? Every port we visited throughout the cruise got better and better as we lead up to the stop in Geiranger (more on that below). There is not one bad port stop on this itinerary.
After two days in London, we made three stops in Scotland: Edinburgh, Orkney Islands, and the Shetland Islands. After leaving Scotland, we headed north of the Arctic Circle to visit Lofoten, Honningsvåg, and Tromsø, before finishing the cruise in Molde, Geiranger, and Bergen. We visited medieval castles, saw the Shetland ponies, cruised through gorgeous fjords, and walked on glaciers.
Midnight Sun – Why is this itinerary called Into the Midnight Sun? For several days on our cruise, we enjoyed 24 hour a day sunlight. Yes at 1 am, the sun is shining and it’s really something to experience. Below is a photo that we took at midnight one night of our cruise.
