Sail Date: Sep 2018

Past good experiences and the newness of the ship contributed to our choice. The service is not 6 star and the food is not outstanding. Afternoon tea is well done. The excursions were adequate. The on board lectures were well presented and informative. Our cabin this time was the lowest category. On our first ocean cruise with Viking we had a penthouse category. The service was just average. The value is about average. The Viking cruise experience is in the middle between Holland America and Crystal. The Cunard experience has fallen recently even below Holland America. Viking Ocean cruises offer a carefully curated itinerary, but the excursions are often farmed out to the local guides and coaches; thus, the quality is uncertain. The staff appeared overworked at times. The public rooms and the overall design of the ship are very attractive. The entertainment is average. On the whole, I recommend suite cabins on Holland America, which offer service above and beyond Viking, for about the same cost.
