Sail Date: Aug 2022

Originally intended to do a European River Cruise in 2020, but, due to C,,,D, changed to the NA ocean cruise. Blown away by Vikings efficiency, quality and service. Virtually no lines for boarding, dining or entertainment despite nearly a capacity passenger load. Loved the smaller ship, less than 1000 passengers. Berthed next to a competitor behemoth with its ~5000 passenger. #NEVER. The all veranda staterooms were efficient, bright and fully equipped. The stewards were personable, kind and quickly discerned your needs and desires. Room service for all meals at no additional charge was delightful. Bathrobes and slippers were an excellent touch. The resident geologist, historian and astrolist added to the sophistication and adult feel. All the restaurants and the main World Cafe truly catered to your every need. The numerous bars and lounges offered full liquor, beer, wine and cocktail service. It all gave the feling of your own private club.

Entertainment was excellent as were the restauants. Insist on the beverage package. We'll sail Viking again.
