  3. Viking Sea
We had already enjoyed several VIking RIver cruises and we were curious to see a part of the world where we had never been before. Seeing Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Slovenia etc were unique and full of history and some amazing towns and countryside. The Viking Sea (VS) was an amazing experience in itself. While it carries over 900 people, it felt less crowded and more personal than even the new Viking Longships. The VS has so many special places designed for getting away and just enjoying /relaxing. The choices for eating fit every possible preference from casual to formal and there were limitless varieties of food to choose from. Both the quality of the food and the staff that served it could not have been better. Two of the perks that the ocean ships have over the river ships, is a laundry and a medical clinic. Both great additions to the sailing experience. I was a bit concerned about sailing in the ocean as opposed to a river, but the VS was so smooth, that even with white caps on the water nor at night did we feel anything. Our one major suggestion to VIking would be that more detailed information was provided concerning the optional tours. Even just providing the time spent driving to the destinations would be very helpful.

Cabin Review

Cabin 406
I wouldn't change anything....cabin staff was sweet and competent and helpful.

The only suggestion for needing a change is the laundry room. The ironing boards are attached to the wall in such a way that you cannot slip clothing over the end or over the edge. Also the irong board covers were made out of material that melted easily if an iron were set down too long. This made them unusable for the next person. Most covers now days are scorch proof.

Please pass this along to whom ever might be able to correct this on VIking Sea or any new ships
