  3. Viking Njord
This was only the third voyage of this vessel but the air conditioning did not work for a number of days and we were told that the parts are coming. The lounge was very hot at all times and the noise level was extremely high. The crew was excellent in all departments. They new what there jobs were and preformed them to a very high standard. The food in the dinning room was always very good and the portions were the right size. Our first program director was very good and very helpfully. With 3 days left on the cruise we where told that she had to leave for a family emergency. We discovered that this was not the case. We heard that she and 5 or 6 others, from different vessels had been terminated. They were non-Europeans, whats this all about? The vessel was very comfortable, other than no air conditioning. Most of the tourers were very good and we learned a lot of history. Would consider Viking for another great cruise.
