Of all the cruises that I have taken (Viking, Princess, Carnival, Holland America), this was by far my most favorite! The boat was beautiful with an open, airy feel to it. The Veranda Suite was elegantly furnished and equipped and was extremely comfortable with plenty of room for all of our stuff. Fresh flowers and towels daily. The dining choices were beautiful with great menu choices served by attentive and gracious staff. The lounge was very comfortable with a well stocked bar and amiable crew and delightful entertainment. The tours were wonderfully well organized, great fun and very educational and interesting. The local tour guides were very knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. Most of all, our Tour Director, Chantal, was absolutely outstanding! She was informative, gracious, helpful, attentive to our individual needs, and approached even the most challenging challenges with a great sense of humor. Our experience was so wonderful we have booked 2 more cruises with Viking and look forward to more great times ahead.
