We went on this cruise on a recommendation from our daughter and son-in-law, plus the Viking reputation. We went on this cruise with our daughter and son-in-law law, and his father and girlfriend. The cruise was perfect. We went on daily shore excursions which were very good. They made each day something to look forward to as we got a good taste of Germany in different locations.
Each day, before dinner, around 530-600, the tour director went over the next days tour plans. A shout out to the tour director, who did a great job.
The casual atmosphere from start to finish kept everything comfortable.
Food: excellent. Ship: excellent. Service: could not have been better. Embarking and disembarking: excellent from the airport to the boat.
Expanding on the service: I must give my highest compliments and thanx to a few individuals: Jerome and Julia. Both were more then excellent. We saw them numerous times daily. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and often in the early evening in the lounge. It seemed as though Julie & Jerome’s only goal was to make our cruise perfect and one to remember. They accomplished this fabulously, from the minute we met them, until the cruise was over. I cannot say enough about their service and about them personally as individuals. They weren’t just servers, they made us feel like we were all friends and welcoming us into their home.
Also, in the lounge, 2 more folks need to be pointed out for excellent service as well: Dmitri and the bartender (forgive me, I forgot his name.) these two gentlemen also made us all feel welcome no matter the time. The silver spirits package is the way to go!
These four helped turned an excellent cruise into one that was “over the top”.
The entire cruise experience was the best vacation my wife and I ever had, and do plan on another one in the future. Everything exceeded our expectations.
Thank you all for a fabulous experience.
Being our first cruise, we knew staterooms would be on the small side. Considering this, our stateroom was fine. We did not book the cruise to stay in our room. Bottom line the room was perfect.
