Cruise was very good, staff wonderful and itineraries good. One complaint is that dinner should be more open seating and flexible. The brochures all say it is open seating but in reality it is not. There is no private seating for 2 or 4, only tables of 8 or more. If you are not seated by 7:10, your dinner is rushed. The other guests have already ordered and the waiters want your order right away. I have been on other small ship cruises (Silversea) where it is truly open seating at any time you want and smaller tables. Having earphones for itineraties was great. Enabled us to wander off a little and still hear our guide. All staff was very attentive and caring. Would definitely travel on a Viking ship again as compared to the other river ships we saw along the way. We loved the understated elegance of our ship
