Food was delicious. Champagne and other little treats were a nice surprise at different times. Specialty dining room experience was a very enjoyable experience with fantastic food and wait staff. All the staff including those cleaning were always very friendly and welcoming. Very talented entertainment crew. Although the entertainment staff was small each night they mixed up the performers and created a different variety show each evening. Every tour was so very informative, interesting, and well planned with great guides. Viking took very good care of everyone. The embarkation and disembarkation were very well handled without any problems. When we returned from one of our tours there were many staff members lining the pier with music playing and champagne and orange juice in hand for those returning from their days adventures. We missed several of our planned ports of calls which was disappointing but were comped back after we returned from the cruise. We had been on several river cruises with Viking but this was our first ocean cruise with Viking. While we were on board we enjoyed it so much we booked another ocean cruise.
Penthouse Veranda. Cabin was very nice. We enjoyed the daily stocked refrigerator. Amenities in the cabin were exceptional. Room service was exceptional.
