We like traveling in the fall. This cruise went at the right time and to places we haven’t visited before. Having loved The Grand European Viking river cruise we wanted to try an ocean cruise. We loved it! It was exciting to travel from Norway to Barcelona. Each country along the way was wonderful! Customer service was great from our room steward, the waiters, to the staff of guest services. The spa was beautiful, and relaxing. We enjoyed the therapeutic pool, hot tub,saunas, even the snow room. The food was delicious in all locations on board, especially Manfredis Italian restaurant. We also enjoyed the shore excursions.
Overall it was a great cruise. We have sailed on many other cruise lines and enjoyed Viking the most. Having less people on board made it more enjoyable. No lines for the buffet, or leaving and returning to the ship. All activities were well organized also. The entertainment was excellent. We hope to sail again soon on a Viking ocean and/or river cruise.
