Viking reputation. We have been disappointed with this cruise. Most of the ports have been one to two hours bus ride from the city of destination and tours to the attractions sometimes more. We have been for the most part docked in large commercial ports which are not very appealing. The cabin is very nice and good service by the room attendant. Some of the other staff seems a little unenthusiastic. The “vibe” has not been great. We find the the restaurant Chefs Table is not for everyone. We had a 6:30 reservation and walked out at 7:45 still waiting for our main course. On the other hand the Italian restaurant is wonderful. It is not Vikings fault but the Norovirus has changed the onboard experience. Meal service has changed in the World Cafe. The spa, hot tubs and pools have been closed for several days. Very good haircut by hairdresser.

We have a Noroviros on board right now. All of the pools and spa area are closed
