The ship was wonderful. great layout and cabins are large. Crew could not have been more wonderful and helpful. Shore excursions are always very well organized and very informative. Food was exceptional. We will never go back to the larger cruise ships again
This was our 2nd Viking River Cruise.. Stayed 3 nights in Nice prior to the cruise. Hotel was a great location rooms were nice and hotel staff was very helpful. We had picked this ship because of the itinerary and it was one of the new Viking fleet. The buffet selections at both breakfast and dinner were exceptional as always. wait staff was always available when needed and checked on everyone continually. The chef could not have been more friendly and was always out and about speaking with passengers. Our cabin was always kept clean and we were always given several bottles of water each day in our fridge. Local entertainment at some ports was brought on board for the passengers both during the day and in the evening. Each of our ports of call were different and where most cruise lines want you to shop on your shore excursions Viking focuses more on the history and culture of each port but of course there was always some free time for shopping. We will choose Viking for our next cruise vacation sometime in the near future. Again what a wonderful experience this company gives each passenger from the time of your initial booking to days following your return with a phone call asking how your experience was.
