Viking did it again, just returned from our 4th Viking cruise, 3 previous river cruises and this was our first ocean cruise! Everything was wonderful, our cabin, the dining, the friendly and competent staff and of course the ports and shore excursions! We love that there are no children and all of the supplemental lectures and great onboard entertainment, The embarkation procedure was very easy - best ocean cruise experence with it yet! I used the spa for a wonderful deep tissue massage. We really enjoyed Manfredi's restaurant, but were less thrilled with the Chef's Table, but perhaps it was the menu that was available on the night we went. Overall, food was outstanding! We had beautiful weather from start to finish! We traveled with two good friends who also had a wonderful time. Our next Viking cruise is also an ocean cruise to the Mediterranean - Barcelona to Rome...can't wait!
Great larger bathroom than the river cruises, and the heated floors and fogless mirrors very well appreciated. Our room was not large but we were in it such a short time each day, not a big deal. Loved the veranda and used it a lot!
