  3. Viking Jupiter
Viking Jupiter was a beautiful ship. Exquisite in every detail of the ship. Our cabin was excellent. We received an upgrade however would still have preferred our original booked cabin. Our cabin attendants were excellent. Very attentive and gracious at all times. Took care of us perfectly. Dining in World Cafe most meals and days was good however the dining room attendants did not seem quite to Viking standards. They were not always quick to remove dirty dishes and the tines we asked for something we waited too long to the point we got up and tended to it ourselves. Food was great. We especially liked our service and food in The Restaurant. Music. Entertainment on the first floor atrium was wonderful as for the other shows we saw in the auditorium. Loved the lectures and port talks as well. All the presenters were extremely educated and knowledgeable. Our excursions on the whole were not worth the money. Some of the guides were very difficult to understand with their accents. Our speedboat ride to see penguins was very rough rider for only one hour to see penguins. Water to rough so we didn't get to or=ther island to see sea lions. Definetley not work the money. Overall this was our first ocean cruise and we did enjoy the trip but our heart is with river cruising where we got more for our money in terms of food, staff, closeness of the people and excursions.
