Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

Best holiday ever! Cruised ten times on Cunard, Viking knocks spots off them. Superlatives cannot do the staff, ship, itinerary, organisation, food, service, weather (yes we had fantastic weather all trip!) and fellow passengers justice. I posted before we went that I had my doubts about paying the tips. Well, I paid them, in full, I was soooo pleased and so thrilled by the week.

I travelled with my 84 year old Dad as it was his dream to do this trip. Viking looked after us from the moment we landed in Amsterdam to the time we went through security at Basle Airport back to the UK. We met some fantastic people, staff, crew and fellow passengers, and I want to give a HUGE shout out of thanks to Tom Ash the programme director, Connie, head of hotel operations and George and Lazlo our waiters. Anita who kept our room spick and span is the best room attendant Ive had in years of cruising, hotel stays and holidays.

Only slight issue was with the Quietvox system used on tours - sometimes it was a bit crackly. We lived with it. It was no big deal in the great scheme of things. The open dining in the evgs we circumvented by sending a table grabber down at 6.55 pm. Those were my only very slight criticisms.
