Highly recommend Viking Ocean. Excellent cruise, service, deluxe cabin is set up very nicely - plenty of storage. Bathroom is very nice- heated floors, plenty of storage space. Our cabin was kept very cleaned - serviced twice a day. Always had plenty of ice. The main dinning room and World Café are very good. Our favorite is Manfredi's. Excellent. Least favorite and should replace is the Chef Table.

Shore Excursions were very good. The included are nice, we did the optional tour to Windsor Castle and Monet Gardens -- the guides were excellent. Did our own private tour in Cherbourg to the American Sector. We suggested on the review that they give us more time in Portugal and skip the A Coruna port as well as they could skip Haugesund, Norway - not much to see and the shops all closed on Saturday at 4:00 pm and we did not dock until 1:45 pm and with tour no time to shop.

What is great about Viking Ocean is it is geared for adults - not children. Very relaxing - pool area is great, options for entertainment. If you go don't miss the Rat Pack and Cabaret in the Torshavn lounge.

What is great about Viking is you can do their tours or your own, they don't hassle you about getting off the ship - they supply free transportation getting into the city and back to the ship. You can drink your own wine at dinner without a corkage fee. They are very service oriented, friendly and provide an excellent cruise experience. Wonderful lounges.

Porto (Leixoes)

Enjoyed the tour -- tour was to short -- did not allow enough time for shopping and walking around. Not enough time in Port -- need to allow more time in Port so you can enjoy Porto.

La Coruna

Not much to see -- could do without this stop.
