Great experiences previously with Viking River Cruises and wanted to try their ocean small ships.
This ship was 4 times larger than the Viking longships, but we never felt crowded.
There were so many places to find a quiet spot to hang out, it felt like a private resort.
Spa was excellent with full use of hydro therapy circuit at no additional charge.
Food was excellent. Never had to wait for anything with open seating. Main dining room was large and fairly noisy. We we traveling as a group of nine and found the World Cafe buffet dining to be more than suitable for our group. Infinite choices, never rushed, attentive service by staff at all times.
Explorers Lounge on top deck was wonderful place to sit and have a snack/drink at any time of day. Never crowded.
All staff were excellent. Never without a smile on their face and showed true desire to meet your needs. Including the captain who was happy to stop and talk while walking his rounds on deck.
We loved the experience and have already booked our 2020 Viking cruise from Bali to Sidney. Can't wait to go!
Small cabin but very comfortable.
Bathroom small but good sized shower
