  3. Viking Jupiter
We chose the cruise for several reasons: husband's ancestors are Finnish, had never been to the Scandinavian or the Baltic countries, and friends' recommendation. We found the excursions to be excellent, and we learned a great deal about the Viking culture and heritage. Specifically the excursions in Norway, St. Petersburg, Aalborg, Gdansk,and Tallin gave us insight in to the culture, heritage and history. The Bergen Railway to Oslo was a scenic delight and gave us a better idea of Norway's beauty. Our first dinner experience in the restaurant was unfavorable. The tables are too close together as the couple sitting next to the four of us appeared to be listening to our conversation. The waiter assigned to us was inept and provided very poor service. We had to ask for water and wine glasses to be refilled We asked for two appetizers, he questioned the fact that we asked for two and acted as though that was not allowed. He made no recommendation for menu choices. We asked questions about several entrees and he wasn unable to describe a particular dish. The Chef's Table and Manfreddi's had excellent food and service. We were very impressed.

Favorites were Norway and St. Petersburg.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4058
Our cabin attendant, Julie, saw to our needs very well, always greeted us with a smile and called us Mr. and Mrs. Short immediately and alway inquired as to how we were.

Shower door leaked throughout the cruise despite Julie reporting it and saying maintenance had repaired it.
