Cabin:

Having travelled with Viking Ocean many times, they continue to be our preferred cruise line, having experienced good and bad elsewhere. This cruise was one where you just had to make the best of the situation. Viking were not in control of the ports that did not appear to want us, necessitating itinerary changes, nor totally in charge of the handling staff in port building, and definitely not in charge of the weather which was not kind throughout the full 22days.

Our pre cruise experience was less than positive for this cruise, due to many forms requiring completion , each seemed to be a duplication , but necessary even to transit through an overseas airport. We , like many others guests, spent a considerable amount of time completing Viking Verifly, and then Viking Boarding Passes - supposedly to ease the embarkation process.

Our flights arranged via VikingAir, were awful. I advise readers not to fly using Iberia if at all possible. This was the only routing offered to us, yet when onboard chatting with other guests from Scotland, they had travelled by a far easier routing, again arranged via VikingAir.

Cabin Review

We have always chosen a DV2 cabin, which suits our needs admirably. As always cabin staff were superb. Who ever is in charge of Human Resources makes terrific choices in employing the staff they do.
