This is a very good ship probably aiming at the high end of the market. Lacks some of the sophistication of Regent and Crystal in terms of service and certainly in terms of passengers. Viking really need to make it clear what the dress code is or lose high end of market particularly in main and special restaurants after say 18.00 hrs.Suggest - for men - After 18.00 hours no jeans or baseball caps allowed. Jacket and tie for special restaurants and jacket all other areas Need to clearly define smart casual Cabin food service at breakfast is basic in terms of presentation Overall food is very good with Chef's Table the best experience ever on a cruise ship Staff etiquette could be improved in terms of service. However, always friendly and attentive Included shore excursions are basic with additional fee excursions much better Quiet Box audio system is good but need to provide right ear speaker bud. Also shore excursion leaders/ guides need to be taught how to use equpment

Cabin Review

Cabin 6050
Not as luxurious as Regent but adequate. Deeper wardrobe would help manage clothes better. Good cabin service. Walk in shower very good with powerful shower head and good hot water
