After 16 months of shielding with very elderly family, this was a mental health break for me alone. Yes there were limitations and requirements, the PCR test in the morning was a challenge but if thats what it takes to have this time on a lovely ship, with a great cabin and so very very well looked after - happy to do so. Crew were amazing, couldnt do enough for you, nothing too much trouble. Meals were so good, not a big foodie but I loved everything - allergies were noted and each day the menu for the Restaurant was sent to my cabin so I could select items suitable and when I checked into the Chefs Table and Manfredi's, the maitre 'd already had adjusted the menu to accommodate. I even had a hamburger (first in years) cooked to order in the Pool Bar - so good
Enrichment was interesting - Sofia and Laurence the classical performers worth going down to listen too and I even watched a movie one evening with popcorn and a beer (another thing I havent done in years) so relaxing.
This was my first time on Viking, confirmed Cunarder, booking something for 2022 although I know it will no be exactly the same with many more passengers etc but the ship size, the attention to detail all sold me on Viking.
