We chose this cruise because we thought it would be an upgrade from Princess and Celebrity. Over 25 cruises on 10 different lines. This had the worst mattress and the best bathroom. Your included excursion is picked by viking. Your choice is to go on what Viking wants you to go on or pay for any of the other excursions. The entertainment was not up to the complicated entertainment you would have on a similar ship of this size. Lots of talent but basically a great band with 4 great singers. But that is as exciting as it gets. Didn't miss the casino or art offerings at all. Very quiet ship for people over 60. Leaving the ship was fast but the information of what was needed on the shore was usually wrong. Great housekeeping staff for our room The main dining room looks like a cafeteria and one night we sat for over 1 hour after our main course before being approached for coffee. The cafeteria on the top floor was predictable but at night actually had candles on the tables with nicer ambiance than the main restaurant. Mannafredis specialty well run and with good variety and good service

Disappointing

Cabin Review

Cabin 3060
Cabin was as expected, bathroom above expectations. The cabin doors need soft closers, when the people next door closed there door we jumped out of bed with the noise

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Historic House
    included excursion which was supposed to be 1.5 hours. 40 minutes at the great house with no guide. Our guide sat in the van while we walked around aimlessly. On the bus for 30 minutes of riding around for no good reason
