Great cruise but we were ready to leave after 12 days. last two days were a waste of time. could have spent two more days in st. Petersburg. stavanger and eidfjord were awful time wasters. on two ocean cruises we tried manfredi restaurant three times. no sauces or gravy on different selections which were over cooked or warmed too long. we tried but it was an awful experience ;three out of three failures. the regular restaurant could run rings around this specialty restaurant. so could dominic's on arther ave in the bronx, send your italian chef there to taste real good food. we signed up for two tours in st. Petersburg which showed up in the itinerary viking sent us but not on the ship itinerary. we were bumped off the palace tour and no one could correct this viking error from day one. we will never get another chance to get back to st. Petersburg in our lifetime because of this computer glitch at viking and feel cheated. we had already booked an alaskan tour (#4562122) before this experience to celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2019. se you then.
