We have travel on many Viking Cruises both river and ocean. This was an itinerary that my wife and I thought was very interesting and it was that. Viking cruises gave always been exceptional in every way possible, room comfort, food , excursions and cultural entertainment. We have found that Viking has the comfort of their guests foremost in their operation and this was displayed by the change in the itinerary due to hurricane that was heading to the same area of England as the ship. During this cruise I was struck by an attack of Bells Palsy. The ships doctor and staff were very good and arranged for me and my wife to be picked up at our next stop for transport to a local hospital and after treatment there brought back to the ship. We can not say enough good things about the crew and their concern for passengers..
