Sail Date: Aug 2018

This was our first cruise ever, so we chose Viking because of our great experience on the Viking river cruise. The ambiance of the ship was classic and elegant; our room was luxurious; and the staff was so attentive that we felt like royalty! Every day we had excellent food in wonderful surroundings. There were plenty of private nooks and crannies so that we never felt that there were many others on board. The 24/7 room service was a really big hit with our group. No matter what time we returned to the ship, we knew we could always have a fabulous meal. Even the buffet had many "made to order" items that made us feel special. The excursions were excellently organized and we always felt that we knew where we were to go and how to get back. This was our first extended family vacation that included married spouses, but will definitely not be our last. We are already planning our next Viking cruise.

Cabin Review

The cabin was surprisingly spacious, even though compact. We had everything we needed and especially appreciated that both European and American plug-ins were included. The staff's attention to restocking, cleaning, and turn down was wonderful. The outside space provided a great place for private dining and wonderful views.
