The cruise included our desired destinations particularly southern Spain. The seven day crossing gave us the opportunity to enjoy all the amenities of the ship. Some of our favorites included the Explorer Lounge and bar for pre dinner cocktails and entertainment; the exercise room and spa options and the fabulous menus options at all the restaurants. We did several dinners at the Chefs table with the premium wine pairings. We highly recommend taking advantage of the unique Viking menus that change every several days Lastly our lovely Jr Suite accommodations were amazing in space, lighting, design and comfort. All of these experiences were facilitated and embellished by the outstanding staff service. The shore excursions gave us the opportunity to see some of the southern Spanish cities including Seville, Cadiz and Valencia as well as St Martens and Madera. We disembarked smoothly in Barcelona to begin our own land tour of Spain and a Portugal.
