Excellent cruise, just as expected from Viking. Everytime we cruise, the service, food is consistent! Wonderful New Years Eve party and incredible brunch New Years Day, including an omelette and pasta station. We really enjoy relaxing in the restaurant as well as eating at World Cafe. We love that at World cafe you can order steaks, etc and they are made fresh as you wait. Embarkation was quick, and we were on the ship within 10 minutes enjoying the buffet and drinks. Excursions are always well run and timely. The included excursions definitely give you a nice experience of each port. We usually do an included then either walk around or paid tour as an additional. The little details that Viking provides really helps you feel pampered. No nickel and dime costs. There is always Bottled water waiting for you when you are heading to your excursion, and while we waited for our tender in Monte Carlo, there was pastry, coffee and tea. This is all included, no up charge!!!! We truly enjoy the shows, Viking usually brings local entertainment onboard from the port your in when it’s an overnight stay, this is a nice touch. On this cruise in Barcelona Viking had La Bamba dancers. Disembarkation and transfers were just as smooth and organized as every other aspect. We already booked another cruise for 2021and will be going on Viking again in August 2020! We Can’t wait to enjoy another cruise. After long searching we found our go to cruise line. We feel that with all the added touches included with your cruise, the cost is definitely worth it

Cabin Review

Cabin
Spacious cabin for a small ship. Large bathroom with full size shower and sink. Love that it has a coffee maker and that the mini bar is restocked everyday .
