We chose this cruise because we were interested in visiting the cities and towns in the itinerary.
I can't express in words how wonderful the entire experience was. From making the reservation, to the flight,transfer,hotel sand ship, Viking made it seamless. If we hit a snag, Viking was ready with a backup plan. Every staff person we met was so friendly, professional, and attentive to our needs. Our program director. James was not only professional, but added a touch of humor at times, which made the experience even more enjoyable. The food staff was wonderful! The Lead Chef was told it was our 45th weddingvanniversary, and surprised us with his home made Tiramisu, which was to die for ( as was all of the food in the ship!).All of the chef staff sang to us as well. That made it a wonderful anniversary celebration! There cabin was comfortable and our steward, Marko, was superb!
The tour guides from each city were very knowledgeable and extremely proud to talk about their city . The entire trip was a wonderful experience, and well worth the wait ( we first booked it pre-Order and had to reschedule twice b)! We felt like family!
