The time of year is perfect for us.
The food was the best I've had on any cruise. Delicious soup. Sea food was outstanding: sushi, crab, shell fish, salmon, etc. And this was nightly fare on the 7th deck.
The specialty restaurants are overrated. They tried too hard. Food was better in the main restaurant and the 7th floor.
The Explorer Lounge was a treat at any time of day. High Tea was very satisfying.
Ship size is perfect. Closest to Holland American than any other that line I've been on.
Shore excursions were adequate. Guides were indifferent; some were good, only a few were outstanding, but the good ones were surperlative. But the excursions were uniformly satisfactory.
Music was balanced. The trio improved the more they played together.
Service was tops, rivaled only by the River Cruise in China. Superior to River Cruise oin Germany.
Room service was punctual and complete.
Laundry self-service was most convenient.
Booked our next cruise while on board the Viking Sun.
The cabin service was outstanding. The stewards were attentive bu unobstrusive.
