Because of the world political situation the cruise itinerary had to be altered omitting St. Petersburg and Tallinn. But other delightful ports were substituted resulting in a wonderful experience. The meals were excellent in all of the venues. Cocktails in the Explorers' Lounge before dinner with entertainment by Zeus and views over the ship's bow was a pleasure. The entertainment in the evening was wonderful with special kudos to "The Viking Vocalists" and to Manny Rodriguez. I also enjoyed the Port Talks and many of the guest lecturers presentations.
The star of all this was Heather Clancy who did a fantastic job as an entertainer and as a manager. She put us at ease, made us feel welcome and brightened up every part of the trip. Thank you so much Heather.
Our stateroom was spacious with more than sufficient storage space. We appreciated the extra care taken to test us daily for COVID.
