Being new to cruising, this experience was beyond my expectations in every way. The stateroom was roomy and luxurious and having a veranda with table and chairs was delightful. The food was gourmet, no matter where we dined. Having choices as to where we wanted to dine was very nice - sometimes we just wanted to grab something at the World Cafe, sometimes we wanted to go to the smaller restaurants and order off a menu, and other times we wanted to go to the cutting edge venus -and at each choice, the food didn't disappoint! The ship was very comfortable and well appointed with no crowds. There were plenty of spaces for people to find and relax, all with views. Viking was very good at moving people seamlessly, we knew where to go and when to be back. The local guides were knowledgeable and the tours were small enough so we could talk with the guide and glean lots of local information. The staff was incredible - everyone was friendly and helpful. Very well trained, they made us feel welcomed and comfortable everywhere we went. We are already looking forward to picking another ocean cruise and are confident that Viking will help make the experience rewarding and enriching.

Istanbul to Venice; Wonderful!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5013
Perfect! Lots of room for everything we had - lots of drawers and storage. Nice seating arrangement. Bed was very comfortable, linens were luxurious. Cabin service was excellent.
