Embarkation was a breeze especially since the ship was in port overnight. Liked our cabin, especially the bathroom. There is never enough storage but Viking has tried to include more than other lines. A few days into the trip we asked for a pad over the mattress because the mattress needed to be softer for us....it was brought immediately....our cabin attendant, Fery, is the best!! The ship is beautiful, spacious and never really felt crowded. The food in the Restaurant was the best and our favorite waiter, Edward, always had excellent recommendations. The food in the specialty restaurants was good but not excellent...really enjoyed the restaurant food more. The singing team put on great shows. Got to know and enjoy the company of Damien who shared his pictures of the puffins he got on an excursion with us. The excursions were o.k., some better than others. I usually plan my own excursions but since everything was expensive on this trip, opted for the included ones. Would we go again.....most likely not....For us there was too little to do on the ship. If they included different crafts other than embroidery and /or more ways to interact with other passengers...only had one Trival pursuit type game the entire trip. Not all day is spent off the ship on excursions, something should be offered besides food and drink even on port days. It was a beautiful scenic trip, but now we gave seen what we wanted to see in Iceland. The Faroe Islands were an interesting stop and Norway was exceptionally beautiful...our second time to Flam. BTW.... If you plan to take the ships train/bicycle tour, be aware that the bike ride does not begin at the trains terminal, but about half way down on the way back to the city. My husband was disappointed and had we known we would have planned the bike ride independently from the terminus. All in all, we had a pleasant time on board and in the ports. If you are happy doing your own thing most of the time...Viking is a good choice...definitely for the oldest crowd...which we are not there yet and probably won't be before we stop traveling.

Beautiful ship....wonderful staff....

Cabin Review

Cabin 4056
Good location....middle if ship so felt less motion. Roomy enough...we were able to unpack most of our belongings...no complaints about storage space. Room under beds for luggage which helped. Room was in good condition...had a few problems that Fery got fixed very quickly. Did find a cruise card from a previous cruise under a chair seat? Loved the bathroom....Viking really has it here with the roomy showers and heated floor! Didn't use the deck much...BRRR. But was nice to open in ports. All in all a comfy place to recharge, change clothes and have an occasional room service.
