Our daughter always wanted to go to Italy. We were scheduled to go in December 2017 but the cruise was oversold or something so they rescheduled us and gave us better rooms in the process. Turned out July was a wonderful time to be in the Mediterranean. It was just beautiful. The ship had only been on a couple of cruises since being launched so it seemed brand new. We had been on the Star and loved it but this ship was even better. The technology especially has improved. Our favorite port was St. Tropez and our favorite excursion was there to Port Grimaud. The rose wine in that region was delicious. Dining was varied and easy with whatever type of venue you might want. Our favorite place for a snack or dessert or just lounging is Mamsen's. We had to tender to a couple of the ports and that process went as smoothly as possible. Everything about Viking is professional!

Beautiful new ship in a beautiful location!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5108
The cabin was very spacious with living room, bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom included a separate shower/tub room with a window and TV in the mirror. Very nice. Lots of storage.
