Cruise Ship Information
In the early 1980s, legwarmers were a fashion must-have, the mullet was a coveted hairstyle and The Love Boat was a hit TV show.
Weekly episodes were set aboard the dazzling Pacific Princess. Regular viewers, like me, wished we were there as the ship sailed away amid a flutter of bon voyage confetti and called at sun-drenched ports. The images created a powerful impression of the magic of cruising, which was not yet the mega-popular vacation choice it is today.
Atmosphere on board
Viking Sky, which sails itineraries on a variety of European rivers, features larger-than-average cabins (all outside views) along with a handful of suites (cabins with connecting doors, a living room, and an additional bathroom with tub). Amenities include a restaurant, lounge, bar, sun deck, swimming pool, sauna, whirlpool and elevator.
