Sail Date: Aug 2018

Interesting itinerary addressing many bucket list destinations; we also wanted to try a new ship; after a Viking River cruise and several Oceania and Celebrity cruises we wanted to try Viking Ocean cruise on a small ship; the entire crew from the captain on down was very accessible and friendly and provided great customer service while always endorsing the Viking brand; we individually recognized Rayban, Lea and Jessica in the main dining room and Waylan our cabin steward with extra gratuities for providing outstanding customer service; the food was generally good yet doesn't measure up to Oceania or Azamara and we were generally disappointed with the Chef's Table specialty restaurant and limited menu choices thought the food was good; also we enjoyed dinner in Manfredi's Restaurant on two occasions and found it entirely too noisy to carry on a dinner conversation however while the menu choices were good and food well prepared we just couldn't get into the specialty restaurant preferring instead to eat with our friends in the main dining room

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

The cabin layout with the closet along the bed made it difficult for two people to move around the room simultaneously and made the cabin seem smaller; we would not choose the same cabin category on a subsequent cruise; we asked to see a Penthouse Veranda cabin and with the placement of the closet which is more like Oceania would offer a better cruise experience
