1st Viking cruise. Travelled Adriatic Sea from Venice. Did the pre cruise hotel stay at Hilton Molino Stucky and enjoyed the hotel and location despite it not being in Venice proper.

Embarkation was smooth and we enjoyed our first meal in the World Cafe. That became our favourite venue for dinner as the aft deck was wonderful to sit out for dinner and catch the sail out and the sunset every evening. We did have a gourmet dinner at Manfredis one night but could not resist sampling the delicious offerings at the World Cafe. The supervisor Casper came around each evening to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and had what we wanted as did the rest of the wait staff.

The ship is stunning from bow to stern. We tried to check out each area and the Explorer's Lounge was a favourite for a relaxing drink while following our path. Viking has thought of everything a cruiser might want and some they don't even know they want.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

Well appointed, lots of storage. Spent loads of time on the balcony. In future I would book port side as the ship seemed to dock at each port with starboard facing the port facilities . Not always pleasant.
