Our first cruise on a larger ship, we have only ever been on expedition ships. Although 930 passengers the ship never felt crowded, lots of large public areas. Excellent meals in all restaurants, no extra charge for the specialist restaurants, Chefs table and Italian. Lovely spa area, even a snow dome!! Excellent gym facilities and equipment. A free excursion in every port with optional extra’s available. All excursions were well organised and excellent guides. All staff were friendly, smiling and enjoyed their work. Just the right amount of entertainment in the theatre, with quality singers. Lovey infinity pool at the stern of the ship. Casual smart dress for the restaurants, which suited us. Free wine and soft drinks available with lunch and dinner was a bonus. Very nice afternoon teas served around the indoor pool area. The indoor pool area had a retractable roof, very nice in good weather. Would definitely use Viking again.

Excellent cruise
