The exotic itinerary was what attracted us to thus cruise and we were not disappointed by either. Having sailed on many cruise lines in the past, have to say Viking ocean ships surpassed them all. The ship is new, sleek, and sophisticated with beautiful soothing interiors. Veranda cabin was roomy and had more than adequate storage space. From the included excursions to the wine and beer served at lunch and dinner to the outstanding,amazing, delicious food (can't say enough about the variety and quality of food and beautiful restaurants) to the truly amazing staff (from the captain and cruise director to the officers,stewards, servers, and maintenance men) that were all friendly, helpful, and delightful there was absolutely nothing we could asked different. The entertainers were excellent, port talks were interesting and entertaining, an on board planetarium was an extra plus. The trip across the Bay of Bengal included Mumbai, Goa, 2 stops in Sri Lanka, 2 stops in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and 2 stops in Thailand. Beautiful, exotic, historical sights everywhere. We enjoyed learning about other cultures and meeting the friendly gentle people in each area. Looking forward to future Viking travels!

Cabin Review

Cabin 1543
As stated cabin was spacious, well appointed, and lovely. I forgot to mention the mini bar that was refilled each day at no cost.
