I have been on dozens of cruises and this was the most beautiful ship that I've been on. The food was very good and the service was too. Embarkation and debarkation are run very smoothly. The ship's common areas are so classy. The pools and spa were very nice. Our room was decorated very tastefully. Our bathroom was beyond expectations. It was huge. I enjoyed the tub with the tv in it. We were on the front of the ship and it did get a little rough while sailing. I wish that our balcony went all the way around. There was an area that was closed off to us. Although. It didn't show that in the pictures. The cruise was very expensive, but I like that everything is included. I traveled with my friend and no kids. We have been on Viking before and will hopefully go again very soon.
