We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we had enjoyed our Viking river cruise several years ago. Also, we booked when Viking was offering reduced air. We loved the ship and especially ou cabin. We were upgraded from deluxe to veranda a bout a week before cruise. We did not really care for dining in main restaurant. Service was very slow - not waiters fault- they just had too many tables to service. We have done a lot of cruising and prefer confirmed dining at same table with same waiters at same time (for dinner). We also missed the evening shows in the theater. The included excursions were tooearly for us, so we even missed the one optional that we paid for. We go on cruises to relax , and hurrying thru breakfast to get on a bus just wasn’t appealing. The air schedule was great going to Rome from Atlanta. Returning was a nightmare!!! We flew from Barcelona to JFK. OMG - what a horrible airport. Luckily we had a four hour layover - it took us almost three hours to maneuver customs , going thru security again and then our gate changed twice. We had to go outside and get a bus their to take us to correct terminal. A very nice ship but a bit disappointing. We had hoped to do Danube next year but not sure now.

Nice
