Sail Date: Dec 2022
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

The overall cruise was great but the food selections and cabin were not up to par for a Viking sailing. The World Café has many of the same items each night (side dishes, fillers, salads) and the selections for the main courses were limited. Also on the night they served lobster we ate in the restaurant but when they served the lobster it was "fishy". I ate one bite and that was it. We went to the World Café and they had the same exact lobster there also. Many people were complaining about the taste. I am not a food critic, but have eaten lobster enough to know that it is never fishy tasting. The stops were great and the staff was amazing as usual. Would I go again on this one? Maybe, but I would talk to the Exec Chef before I ate the lobster. In our cabin we found a shoe (not mine) under the bed and that was on the first day so from there that set the tone. Viking is so much better than what we experienced. We have been on approx. 10 other Viking cruises and never had any issues and would rate a 5 star all day long. This one gets a 3.
