  3. Viking Egil
We booked this trip over a year ago, chose the room we wanted and we chose perfectly. We had room 324, it was one of the larger rooms, a bedroom and sitting room, two TVs, a much larger shower, very comfortable. The Stewart was in twice a day, restocking the fridge, changing the fruit tray out, replenishing the diet cola and water, he left the wine and champagne just in case we changed our minds and decided to have some. The beds were comfortable and you could set the temperature for each room. The balcony was large enough for two to sit on, and a pair of binoculars were in the room. There is a coffee station on the third floor just outside the lounge, several different coffee selections are available plus hot water for tea and hot chocolate. There is always pastries or cookies provided in baskets in case you get the nibbles during the day. The loung is where you meet up with fellow passengers and the cruise director each night, he runs through the next day’s activities and this is where you find out about the included excursions and optional excursions. We ate all our meals in the dining room, the breakfast had many selections to choose from, from porridge to scrambled eggs, fresh made omlets, toast, pastries, fruit, or you could order off a menu, French toast etc. For lunch they had soup, sandwiches, salads, at the buffet area there was usually a pasta dish, fresh made, or again, you could order off a menu, usually from a selection of two items. Dinner was fantastic, each night there was a different selection, or again you could order off the menu, I did have the steak a few times from the menu, as it was very delicious, ALWAYS a great dinner and the wait staff were fantastic, if you wanted to taste something from the menu, but you had taken the buffet, they brought it to you right away, always, ALWAYS there with water, wine, coffee anything you wanted, you got, can’t say enough good things about them The included tours were very good, nice guides very informative then you would have the rest of the day to discover the cities on your own. May I suggest, if you have on board credits, and you plan on purchasing items from the ships gift store, used your credits early, as we found out, they don’t replenish the items, and I was disappointed twice on items that I wanted to get. When it came time to leave, Viking took us to Prague for our cruise extension, they provided shuttles from our hotel to the centre of the city all day and until late in the evenings, every hour, and when it came time to leave for the airport, a guide came with us on the tour bus, checked us in at our airline, provided us with a box of food as we left the hotel so early and pointed us in the right direction to security, always, they were always there for our needs, what ever we thought we might need or desire, can’t say enough good things about the viking crew. When you returned from the included excursions there was always staff waiters no to greet you and offer either a small hot chocolate to warm you up, or a small treat to help tide you over, totally awesome

Amazing experience

Cabin Review

Cabin 324
Fantastic! We wanted a larger room, and that’s exactly what we got. The shower is very large, lots of room - there are only 8 of these kinds of rooms on these ships, so if you are looking for more space, book early
