Firstly greeted and directed to ship efficiently by Viking rep. 1.75 hour transfer to ship from Munich airport. Arrived unpacked. room just a standard with port hole viewing window. free safe, storage for cases under bed. compact shower and toilet. all toiletries supplied. good quality hairdryer. Nightly meeting 15 minutes prior to dinner 7-9pm to advise on the following day excursions. loved the sit anywhere dining room. we got to met so many different guests. the seating is the same for lunch 12-2.
Food was amazing from breakfast to evening meal, not one complaint. free drinks of wine and beer with meals was more than generous. our surprise was that out of 180 on board there were only 12 British guests. The remaining guests were all Americans. Excursions all begin at 8.30 with the exception of 1 which was 9. Evenings low key, chatting and not too late to bed because of the early mornings. Staff were all excellent. the Captain very visible with guests. 24 hr tea and coffee station with cookies, however I would have liked tea and coffee facilities in the cabin, that's just a personal thing. best excursion, Vienna and Budapest.
