We had never been on an ocean cruise, but had used Viking for our first river cruise. We liked that the ship was smaller than most ocean cruises, and we loved the experience we had on the river cruise. So this was our first and before the cruise was over, we signed up for another cruise! The food was outstanding no matter where we ate. The staff was amazing, and were always polite, went out of their to help us, and were very engaging and pleasant! We grew attached to many. Our room was amazingly roomy and well laid out. It was larger than the river cruise room, and we had additional amenities. There was a place designed for EVERYTHING in the room. LOVED it! The entertainment, activities, and shore excursions were first rate. We went to every evening show, and then often went on to the ship bar for more music and dancing. The excursions were very organized every day, and the guides were engaging, knowledgeable, used humor in their tours, and seemed to be very pleased with their jobs. Even though there were 900 people on the ship, we never felt crowded and there were always quiet places to sit and read, listen to music, have a drink or whatever. Everything from embarkation to disembarkation was first class! We are hooked!
We don't remember our room number, but, again, the room was designed right down to the details to accommodate traveling . . . There was a place to put everything and it was easily accessible. We enjoyed the time in our room, sitting on the veranda, or just watching a movie. We would often take a short nap before the evening activities and it was such a pleasant space. We even took advantage of room service for a couple of meals, which really felt decadent! First rate accommodations!
