Sailed on several Viking River Cruises and wanted to experience Viking Ocean. Great cruise, ship and staff. The port stops were great; however, I think Viking could have provided more quality in their included shore excursions. In addition, the same time frame for booking shore excursions should be given to all passengers and not be prioritized based on what you paid for your cabin. We found the restaurant and bar staff very superior when compared to a number of our previous cruises. We thought the food included adequate variety and was delicious. The ship had a great spa area, it was never too crowded. The complimentary wine and beer for lunch and dinner was very much appreciated. Very relaxing and enjoyable cruise. The one day at sea was relaxing and enjoyable. The newness of the ship provided for a very clean and enjoyable environment.
Viking Ocean and River Cruises are wonderful.
