My wife & I have multiple cruising experiences – varying ship operator/size & world location - and believe Viking ships accommodate the perfect number of passengers - about 900 - to result in a most memorable cruise experience, not possible on mega ships. Fewer passengers greatly expedites Viking’s efficient embarkation/debarkation process so we can focus on enjoying our time. The wonderfully friendly, professional and courteous staff provide outstanding service throughout the ship from the dining room to the fitness center. The cabin and all ship amenities are superior. Our port calls and excursions were most enjoyable and went off efficiently without any delays. Viking offers dining options to satisfy all our needs. Whether formal dining or the informal settings the food preparation, selection, presentation and especially flavor places Viking at the top of the cruise industry. We've cruised with Viking previously and really appreciate Viking ships being built and configured so similarly that my wife and I immediately regain our familiarity when arriving aboard – like returning home – and now look forward to our 2021 cruise. Viking continues to exceed our expectations! Viking has our highest recommendation!!
