My embarkation experience was okay. I had no problems with my flights. My suitcase was damaged between the airport and the ship and delivery was delayed until quite late . I thoroughly enjoyed my time on board. I liked the decor and available amenities. I frequently walked on the decks and used the gym. I used many of the public areas throughout the day. I especially enjoyed the upper level of the Explorers' Lounge when I wanted a quiet spot and I enjoyed the pool area when I felt more social. My cabin was comfortable and most importantly had enough storage. I ate breakfast and lunch in the World Cafe. The food was good and I enjoyed the variety and ate out on the Aquavit Terrace as often as possible. I often had dinner in The Restaurant and was pleased with the selections offered. I enjoyed multiple meals at Manfredi's and they were awesome. I often enjoyed tea in the Wintergarden and the scones were excellent. I also ate at the Pool Grill on days I returned late from an excursion and my food was cooked to order. I thought the entertainment was exceptional. The variety of guest entertainers was great. I believe new entertainers arrived every six days. Each of the three acts performed two nights so that after six days they left the ship. The Viking Band was awesome. They usually played with the guest entertainers on stage and played in Torshavn Lounge after the stage show. I have great memories of many nights listening and dancing to the music of these talented musicians in the Viking Band. The band sought requests and socialized with guests. I enjoyed The Viking Trio, the guitarist Laslo and the pianist Ferry. who played between 5:00 and 11:00 each day. Concerts in the Atrium we excellent.All the service was exceptional - bar staff, waitstaff, & housekeeping were the best. Educational speakers were excellent. There were too many out of the way industrial ports requiring long commutes to the desired destination. Excursion descriptions were glorified and inaccurate. The complimentary wifi was pitiful and it was very difficult to post on my blog. I preferred this ship to the larger options and would consider cruising with Viking again. Since this cruise was Viking's first World Cruise, I hope they learn from experience and improve in the area of shore excursions with accurate descriptions.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5096
My cabin was fine. There was adequate storage. I was very pleased with the job Housekeeping did taking care of the space. I didn't spend a lot of time in the cabin.
