Nice to get back on the water. Lots of paperwork to get on the cruise, some of it was never checked. PCR tested every morning, as far as I know, there were no outbreaks. The Viking only charter flight direct to/from Malta was icing on the cake. We had to skip Montenegro because of changing Covid conditions, we spent 2 days in Dubrovnik instead.
Tours varied, some good, some not so good. In Malta we had to stay with our tour, in Croatia we could wander at will, and Viking provided shuttle busses from the ship to the center of each town. However, they did not provide local the maps that they usually do, citing Covid as the reason. Weather was hot and sunny, appreciated the cold water bottles to start the tour and the cold towels upon our return.
Last day they threw us off of the ship at 8am to get the ship ready for the next cruise, drove us around in Malta for 2 1/2 hours without a rest stop before getting us to the airport.
Cabin is the same as always, lots of storage, nice bedding. Did notice a little wear on the arm of the leather couch, not typical. Shower in the bathroom very nice, as is the heated floor. Cabin fridge refilled each day with just what I requested.
