Sail Date: Nov 2016
Cabin:

We have taken 3 river cruises with Viking and been very pleased with the experience, so naturally we considered them when we starting thinking of for a blue water adventure. We were continually amazed at the level of service, the array of activities available on board and ashore in included and available excursions.

A few negatives:

1. On shore experiences the guides spent altogether too much time making local shopping available to the passengers. Naturally, frequent rest room breaks are appreciated; but on a number of the excursions in Greece & Israel particularly, we were obviously & continually being dumped into souvenir shops. Most tourists want to take back souvenir items for themselves and acquaintances, but the amount of time spent in such shops could have been better spent on useful touring.

Cabin Review

Cabin PV1

Spacious, more than we were expecting, I think they upgraded us. Great views, especially when in port. Absolutely spotless housekeeping & attention to detail by the staff. Punctual and comprehensive room service when used.
