Wanted to reacquaint with the homeland of our ancestors (England and Scotland). Haven't been there in many years. Love the idea of complimentary wine, beer, or soft drinks available with lunch and dinner. Love the complimentary shore excursions. It is a great idea and the complimentary shore excursions are more than adequate for us, Also love the specialty dining . Chef's Table and Manfredi's are a great change from the buffet and dining room. The fact that they are available at no extra charge is a real plus. No gambling is also a plus as far as we are concerned. We also enjoy the entertainment in the atrium. A very nice touch. One of your best offerings is free WiFi throughout the ship. It really saves a lot of hassle and expense. We have gone on 25 or more cruises with different cruise lines. This is our second ocean cruise with Viking and we have also taken 2 river cruises with Viking. The lack of formal full costumed nightly shows is not a problem. What you offer is more than adequate. The ship size and # of passengers is most important to us. Your 965 passengers max ships are perfect. We have been on a couple of large ships and we would give up cruising if all that was available were 2000 + passengers. Neil & Diana Thorp

Cabin 4085
A bit small. Uncomfortable chairs, needs a bit more drawer space.
