First time on Viking Cruise. Did ocean cruise to Scandinavia. Ship's crew and staff were exceptionally helpful and efficient. Thank god no irritating photographer telling you to pose with a stuffed iguana. No high pressure gimmicks on anything. Met with cruise critics on meet and mingle and had great time. Cannot think of anything significant to point out in the way of problems. My wife and I enjoyed our Viking cruise very much. The excursions were fatiguing at times, over twelve hours in the case of Warnemunde to Berlin. First time I ever noticed that the Viking staff sends at least one of their crewmembers on each bus of excursioners and provided excellent assistance at times during the day's journey. A very big help. Food was no better than other lines but just as good. Wish the breakfast offered better choice of pastries in the donut sense. Noticed that all ports handled security/terrorism issues very proactively.

Exceeded expectations

Excellent in every way. Room kept immaculate. Pressure and settings plus working of the showers best ever.
