Great ship, great service, great rooms, great ports of call! This cruise had it all. First the ship is a perfect size, not too big not to small. Had all the facilities we needed (pool space, walking track, great spa, great entertainment, EXCELLENT rooms... Every room had a balcony! Had none of the things we didn't want (casinos, children, smoking, art sales), and the best thing is Viking does not nickel and dime you. Free alcohol, free wifi, free (self-service) laundry, a free tour option EVERY port of call. It is an older age group (we're in our 50s and we were some of the youngest on the ship) so that might turn some people off, but not us! Communications prior too, and during, the cruise were outstanding. The two high end restaurants were utterly amazing, you were guaranteed one visit each, but we asked nicely and checked in daily and were able to get three visits in each of the high end restaurants, oh and by the way, they did NOT cost extra, did I mention no nickel and diming... Well done Viking, well done!
