Sail Date: Aug 2015
Cabin:

Viking showed its ability to change plans when things go wrong. There were problems with the new ship in Estonia. They couldn't get the ship all the way to Norway in time. So we stayed in Bergen an extra two days (hotel, food, excursions, and flight to Copenhagen) with Viking picking up the tab.

It did mean no London, but we added Copenhagen. We had been to both cities before, but had spent less time in Copenhagen. We went through the Kiel Canal and still had less time in Paris with no trip up the Seine. After that we were back on schedule with stops in Lisbon, Cadiz, Gibralter, Cartagena, and Barcelona. Side trips were included at each port. More extensive were available for a price.

Food and service were excellent. We were a group of eight. We were given private dining space several times.

Cabin Review

Cabin Large Balcony

Beautifully decorated. Thoughtful organization. Excellent room steward, but he was responsible for too many cabins.

Wish the room refrigerator could have been refilled daily. My husband would have been much happier. He prefers Diet Coke straight from the can. It isn't available other places already chilled. Must have ice.
