We have enjoyed numerous Viking river cruises and hoped this first Viking cruise ship experience would be equally fantastic. It was. Nothing is left to chance with Viking and everything is first class. The thought of getting on one of the many massive cruise ships with 3,000 of our closest friends is hideous. Viking does it all with a smaller ship, with all balcony staterooms, and much more space for outstanding public areas.
As we expected, service is simply magnificent. Our steward/butler, Gede, did a fantastic job. Our stateroom, #6005, was always immaculate and the bathroom always shiny and clean. We had plenty of space for our clothing, including numerous drawers and a nice closet. The sofa and chairs were comfortable, and our balcony was of a generous size.
Dining was very good. There were at least 6 dining options, all included in the price. The food in each was well prepared, and the variety was appreciated.
Spacious room with 340 sf of space. Coffee maker, refrigerator/bar restocked daily, more than ample storage/closet space. Nice sized bathroom. The room is very quiet, away from elevators.
Great nature center trip
Excellent walking tour with great guide.
