For our 5th cruise with Viking (after Portugal, France, China and Med) we decided for our anniversary to explore the Central Europe on Viking LIF.
Our expectations were very high, but the recent 2 weeks experience was absolutely terrific, far above all our previous cruises with Viking.
The on board meals were wonderful but I will suggest the possibility to order half portion I hate food waste. All the staff in the restaurant they were above any expectations: outstanding service, especially Pol, George, Bogdan, Andri. The food was delicious and fresh, very well prepared and the lead Chef Michael was top notch. PERFECT! Kudos to Kristian, the restaurant manager for his attention, friendly attitude and the way how he manage my quite complicated dietary requests.
The cabin, as we expected was spacious and always immaculate clean. Having a balcony is a plus despite the fact that in some ports we were docked next to other ships. We love the heated floor in the bathroom and the amenities (shower gel, shampoo, body lotion). Viking use to have Occitane on board, but this time the new brand (without being famous) was good too. Our cabin steward Joy was simply perfect. Always smiling, very kind and polite manage to keep our cabin immaculate and fresh. She was working very hard and always had a little “something” to add to the daily routine. Beautiful stunning fresh flower arrangements. Housekeeping works hard and I congratulate the work ethic of all!
