We chose this cruise based upon a friend’s recommendation. We were happy that we weren’t being nickeled and dimed throughout the cruise. Don’t need a casino, and liked that there weren’t noisy kids running around. Cabin service was exceptional. Service in the alternative restaurant Manfredi’s was also exceptional (the food was great too). Didn’t make it to the Chef’s Table (had heard the menu was Cantonese for most of the cruise). I really liked the seafood and my friend liked both steaks she had. We only ate in The Restaurant once, and service was SLOW (there were 6 of us at a shared table). We tried Mamsen’s only once for breakfast. The waffle was great, but not the “one of a kind” that it’s advertised to be. Most of our meals were in the World Cafe. Both of us felt that more effort is put into presentation than taste. I had trouble getting water served to me in the World Cafe several times throughout the cruise, but not in any of the other restaurants. The shore excursions were exceptional! I think I took 3 included excursions, paid extra for 3, and had a pre-extension in Madrid. There was a noticeable difference in the English spoken by the guides on the excursions we were charged for versus the included excursions (which makes sense). Travel was seamless on the way there, but a disaster on the way home (our luggage is still in Frankfurt and may be there for a while due to a strike by Lufthansa cabin crews). We purchased the trip insurance through Viking, and ended up sleeping at the airport because the insurance company would not verify that they would pay for a hotel (we had to pay upfront, submit a claim and they would “consider” paying it). I figured the hoops we would have to jump through would not be worth it, and the day had been so stressful (running through two airports, making one connection because they held the plane, and missing the other by 5 minutes). I didn’t want the additional stress of needing to be back at the airport at 5:30 am to catch the final leg. Viking probably doesn’t even know what we went through on our flights home (we missed the last flight after being re-routed to Colorado Springs just to get fuel in case we had to circle Denver for a bit, and then having 20 minutes to get through Customs, TSA a second time that day, and having to take a train to B concourse, just to miss our plane by 5 minutes).

I have been on multiple cruises but none with the level of service of Viking. The ship is beautiful, the staff constantly goes out of it’s way to do whatever they can. The public spaces are quiet, uncluttered and beautifully appointed. We never felt crowded and we could be with with as many other people as we wanted. Meals are delicious and huge portions. Outr waiter( which we requested after the first night) was spot on with his recommendation and the wine was refilled constantly. Sometimes it was the little things, robes and slides in locker rooms for the spa, real wash clothes and not paper towels in bathrooms, but overall we felt spoiled. We did not feel pressured to purchase things like photos and art like other cruises the cost was lol up front and not nickel and dimes to death. We appreciated the unhurried pace and were able to relax. If you have never tried Nordic bathing, you must. Alternate hot through either sauna or hot tub, then cold: a bucket shower or snow grotto. I was hesitant but the snow grotto was so refreshing and we felt energized after. We loved the wine with lunch and dinner. Food was great, we really loved the speciality restaurants. Manfredis is a touch more formal with delicious Italian dishes, I loved the Rib Eye and tried squid ink pasta and loved it . Viking we will be back! Read Less

Firstly, the level of service was excellent. Our steward, Alief took good care of us. Everyone on board was extremely helpful and cheerful, but was never overly so. They did not hover, were not obsequious, yet were always there when something was needed. Our cabin suited our needs perfectly. The bedding was comfortable and the small deck outside was adequate. Food quality, quantity and range of choices was excellent. Compliments to the chef! The ship itself is just the right size. Any larger and it would have been overwhelming as were some of the ships tied up near ours. The guides on our shore excursions were uniformly knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. My only complaint was that our stays in port were too short. Perhaps fewer but longer port visits might be better. One day in Rome, Naples, Venice or Dubrovnik is not enough. My one caveat concerning entertainment was that it was too loud to carry on a conversation. Less amplification was called for. All in all, however, we had a marvelous time and look forward to doing it again. Read Less
