  3. Viking Lif
Although overall we were overall pleased with this cruise, our second with Viking, there was one area that could use improvement. First and foremost, we were not aware of the extensive walking we had to do. The walking itself wasn't the issue; the weather was. We were in the Netherlands and Belgium for one of the coldest Mays in recent history. We also encountered a fair amount of rain. Therefore, having to walk the amount we did was somewhat unpleasant. It was miles to walk into and out of Bruges, at least a mile to walk to and from windmills, a good distance to walk around one town. Perhaps alternative activities could have been planned to minimize the discomfort. The ship itself, the Lif, was lovely. The cabin was more than adequate, and maintenance of that cabin was outstanding. Food was excellent, with a good variety of choices. We liked the fact we had the option of dining in the formal dining room or more casually. We thoroughly enjoyed our extension in the Hague. The hotel was outstanding. In summary, the trip was a great success. Nonetheless, we would like Viking to take into consideration the fact that there should be options available, should the weather be inclement, as it was on our latest cruise.
