We were anxious to see/compare the Viking smaller ship, ocean cruise with other large ship ocean cruises. We also wanted to compare this venue to Viking's river cruise ships. Turns out these smaller ships are a HUGE plus, and their river cruise ships are a close second. Our ship was always spacious and immaculate everywhere we went. The main dining area food was always excellent, with many fine choices at each meal. Even the pizza was better then in Naples, and their galeto never stops. Three additional private restaurant options were also terrific, and was a nice change of scenery. Service was friendly and very accommodating everywhere you go, from dinning, to cabin, to poolside. Our flight arrived late, so the staff transferring us to the ship started this display of their warm service. Casual, quality, elegance everywhere....perfect! The entertainment was multi talented in their lounges, and the stage shows were outstanding. It was like a condensed Las Vegas! All this while in perfectly comfortable, relaxed settings. Included and optional excursions, were both very enjoyable and varied. The access on/off the ship with ground transportation was all excellent. Every port was a pleasant call, but Monte Carlo, Corfu, and Croatia were outstanding, and left a smile in our hearts. We'll be back on Viking again, but I have a big suggestion. If guests have long flights (> 8 hours), Viking should allow/provide ground transfers to the ship for overnight hotel stays before boarding. No reason to start a cruise exhausted or rushing.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3064
Enough room to be comfortable, and it was very quiet. Bathroom/shower was perfect.
This mid-ship location made everything very convenient.We didn't spend much time sitting on the veranda, but it is a very nice addition day or night.
