We chose this cruise because of the itinerary over Thanksgiving day. Here are my pros and cons regarding Viking Ocean:
Great service with Concierge/Viking Services
Great service with Room Services
Friendly service from all crew
Good well organized excursions
Food is very good in 'Chefs Table'
Comfortable bed and spacious room.
Lacking entertainment for anyone middle age or younger. The only live band with dancing doesn't come on stage until 11PM. Seriously?
Terrible coordination and communication when dropped off at airport. A Viking agent only spoke Italian and assumed everyone was flying with Delta.
Was not notified well in advance that transfer to the ship from hotel was at 9.45am, we already has a booking (tickets) to a museum.
Too casual in fine dining restaurants. Dress code not set in place. Not a good fit for us as we like to dress up for elegant restaurants.
Not a bad cruise-line, but next time we'll try Crystal or Seaborne.
Comfortable, spacious, quiet. Bathroom shower could have located soap dishes and fixtures at waist level or higher.
