Itinerary was perfect for us with concentration on Japanese ports. We wanted to sail with Viking since we only have booked with Oceania. Service is outstanding with Viking.
As for restaurants, the Chef’s Table specialty is fantastic. Wine pairings are very well done.
Manfredi’s is way off track attempting to represent Italian cuisine. The food is just not good regardless of whatever version they are attempting to serve.
Cabin is well appointed, with bright airy decor. Smaller than Oceania A1 category, but Orion bathroom is better use of space without bathtub.
