Highly rated and many other satisfied customers. Found it all to be true. Ship was amazing, everything was thought out and crew was always attentive and prepared. Staterooms were clean, well appointed and plenty of room. Food on the ship was excellent - plenty of selection and variety, regional dishes served, service was outstanding. Manfredi's (Italian restaurant on ship) was our favorite place to dine, excellent food, service, selection. Tours (with one exception) were well planned, educational with well informed guides, always some free time after the tours to explore, eat or relax. Evening entertainment on ship was outstanding, young performers that I would not be surprised to see on Broadway one day. There were also good lectures and discussions about the ports of call and related subjects. Without exception, all the staff working on the ship were friendly, courteous, attentive and efficient. Met a lot of enjoyable passengers as well, enjoyed meals together. The extension trip was wonderful, the best part being the Viking appointed hostess. She was well above all our expectations! Scenery, tours, restaurants and hotels were most enjoyable. Will definitely be taking another Viking cruise in the future.

First cruise, first trip to Europe, could not have been better!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5044
Clean, nicely furnished, view and able to sit on the veranda, room steward was excellent. Mattress and blankets were perfect and comfortable. Easy chairs were great for reading, relaxing or TV.

    Tour guide was well informed, flexible, enjoyable to tour and chat with, helpful in finding places to eat. Enjoyed the city, especially seeing the beautiful Sagrada Familia. Would have liked more free time to explore the city.

  • Florence & Pisa Tour
    Guide was outstanding, well informed, fun, willing to help and took us to lots of interesting or scenic spots. Enjoyed seeing Florence, Pisa was not as impressive (only thing there is the leaning tower).

    Not at all impressed with this tour. Guide was difficult to understand, did not take us to any of the historic sights, dropped us at the docks for free time (just kiosks with small vendors). Return trip was along same route we came in on, so nothing new.

    Guide was very good, city was crowded, noisy and hot. Long lines prevented seeing any of the major sights. Could have used more time in this city.
